Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ProTrimmer Home Depot and Jeldwen need better quality control
I have installed well over a thousand doors as a professional trimmer. Quality control at the door factories must have taken a hit as a result of companies leaning hard on accounting to improve the bottom line. All 3 doors that were recently picked up from HD had quality issues that show a lack of quality control. Poorly mortised hinges, separated joints where header and jamb leg are connected, missing hinge screws and no edge bevel were problems I found on all the doors i recently installed. All of these factors would have caused a weekend warrior type problems with installing the doors.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by handyman Not as good as the ones I bought at HD maybe 8 years back.
I thought these were of the same manufacturer when I bought 5 interior doors for our downstairs about 8 or so years ago. I stained them with Minwax Fruitwood and rub on poly and they came out pretty good IMO. Turned out the manufacturer was Masonite. I just bought 8 at HD and the manufacturer is Jeld-Wen. Of the 8, 2 had to be returned for defects. On one, a veneer strip was unattached and I probably could have glued it but then I noticed a chip out of the door. You couldn't see the chip until you removed the top packaging which you can't do in the store. On another one, the complete up-down edge on the off jam side of the door was defective. It looked like they forgot to add the veneer strip and finish it off. This you also couldn't have seen until you remove all packaging and swing the door out. On another one (which I kept) after I installed it, the wood veneer was seperating from the frame. I managed to glue it and would have returned it but I figured the glue will hold - I didn't feel like taking it down and returning it. I tried Watco Danish wood stain (medium walnut) and the result is less than satisfactory. I don't think the oil stain is the problem but more so, the wood pieces the door is made from. It doesn't cover enough and all the different pieces of wood look unattractive. Grain is different directions, knots, different grains (slab, end etc.). These are the exact types of doors (6 panel) that I bought before so I don't know if Masonite was bought out by Jend-Weld or not but there seems to be a quality control issue at least with my experience.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by NJGal Worse quality ever
Wish I had read the earlier reviews. The wood quality is extremely poor: different grades, different grains, etc. I applied stain and now the door is a total mess since even after I carefully hand-sanded the wood, the stain covered unevenly due to the wood variations. Also, there is something wrong with the way the pre-hung door hangs. My handyman has spent a lot of time, at my expense, to try to keep the door square/straight so it doesn't swing out when not latched. This is the only wood door I've ever purchased from HD and I could not be more disgusted with the wasted time and money. I may try to return the product after speaking with my handyman.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Turbotoys These doors are complete junk!
To begin with I am a professional carpenter and tradesman and have installed many doors in my life.
I purchased 5 of these doors for a home remodel and they all looked nice until unwrapping them and starting to install.
Like a previous installer posted there were screws in the hinges missing and they were not even inserted straight. Many of them were stripped and had to be fixed. Every door had missing screws and stripped hinges!! A few of the doors were not even square - glued together incorrectly from the factory. Returned them and received new ones - I made the employees open up every door and the other ones that they had in stock had missing screws as well. I took the best ones they had and had to fix the hinges before installing.
Many of the do it yourselfers would have a difficult time getting these to work properly.
I would not recommend these doors.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by disappointed inferior quality and workmanship
One of the hinges was not properly and completely routered out on the side jamb and not recessed so the door was misaligned in the frame right from the start. Several screws in the hinges were stripped and driven in at angles so the screw heads were not flush.
The stops were misaligned by 1/8" leaving a gap on two sides of the door.
After priming the door, the veneer bubbled near the top.
This door has poor workmanship and I spent a great deal of time fixing the things due to lack of quality and quality control.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ber1212 Excellent Solid Interior Doors
We bought these doors as bedroom door replacements. The doors were solid and beautiful. Installation was quick and painless and they were easy to stain/paint as well.
There are no complaints regarding these doors. They're great!
