Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Handyhomeowner Price makes up for its short comings which are few.
The price on the door was great for an undersized door. My only gripes are the directions are all pictures and no words which isn't so bad since it was pretty easy but something I always find annoying. Also the channel for catching water has no drain so it drips the water out slowly...including when I open the door. I'll have to cut a slot in it to drain back into the shower. Other than that it seems like a pretty decent door for the price.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by geoffhazel OK door but isn't reversible as advertised
Good packaging. I saved shipping and picked it up at the store. The product description says "the pivot door can be configured with either a right or left hand swing to suit the needs of your space" but there is no way to do that I could find. The bottom piece has a sweep and the top rail is configured differently so it's not like you can just flip it over, and there are no instructions on how to "change the swing". Also, mine was shipped with the sweep installed, and it got all crunched and bent during its time in the box. I wish they had left it off and let me install it. Finally, one tip: have a 3/32" drill bit handy to drill pilot holes on the jamb side. They include some small "self drilling" screws but they are not much good without a pilot hole. Otherwise, it's a solid feeling door, and looks pretty good. Oh, and before you order, you might want to put a piece of cardboard the size of the door in he hole where the door is going to go to be sure it is tall enough for you.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Redbaron This is a poorly designed door
Every time you open the door at the end of a shower, water drips across the floor and leaves a nice puddle. It isn't designed with a angled seal at the bottom or any other method to send the water back into the shower. With door installed, glass section is at an angle (not parallel to the threshold), this doesn't cause any issues but looks odd to me. Magnet catch is too strong, it is hard to open the door it is held in place so well. I am quite sure I installed it correctly as I am very comfortable with this type of project. I wish I had seen this in the store, I would have known not to buy. It is hard for me to believe the manufacturer didn't notice and correct these design flaws.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Joshua Decent for the price but tough to install, some flaws
Caveat: the extent of my handyman experience is limited, but I found this to be challenging. The biggest problem for me was the instructions, which just didn't have very clear diagrams. I actually wound up with my door not quite lined up perfectly with the threshold (it's a slight angle, not noticeable head-on but noticeable if you look down at the bottom threshold), and this was partly because the instructions were confusing on how to line things up.
Also the hardware is of mixed quality -- the frame and pivot overall seem good, but the magnetic strip was cracked and part of it came off (I was able to superglue it back). The wall plugs also seem slightly shoddy, which may have been part of the problem I had below.
My one other complaint is that the magnetic seal is a little too strong, and the three screws/plugs to hold the jamb to the wall didn't really keep the jamp completely tight against the wall and left it with a very slight amount of "play." Even with the caulk added, I'm concerned that over time the magnetic pull from the door seal is going to loosen the jamb in the wall. It's also just slightly annoying to open as a result.
Still, not a bad door overall for the price, looks nice, and I managed to get the thing installed.
This was in a tile shower stall for what it's worth, and the walls are the old solid plaster kind, so that may also have factored into the difficulties.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Katherine Expected better quality
This door was twice as expensive as the last door I bought at HD for this same shower. The previous apparently is no longer offered.
We had professionals working on the shower, thus the installation went well. However, the door is flimsy, has no real handle and arrived with the rubber piece at the bottom terribly out of shape. It has remained that way. Moreover, the track at the door bottom does not allow the water to flow into the shower, so when opening the door the water spills out on the floor.
I am very disappointed in this door and would not recommend it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lkp01 Very satisfied!
Had a handy-man friend install. All went well. We're very happy with the solidity and seal of the door. We were looking for a lower-cost option on a 24" W pivoting glass door. In-store offered Sterling brand , but the thinner glass made for a lot of wobble on opening the door (of the sample model). Decided to order this Foremost door, since the glass is thicker. It was well worth the slightly higher price and short wait for delivery.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Texasdiyer Excellent product
This was a very nice door for the price. It completed our shower remodeling perfectly. The only problem with this product were the installation instructions. They were unclear and confusing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SilentHandyman Clear glass at a great price
The installation instructions was not so great. Also should have a drain channel on the bottom of the frame that will direct the water from the door into the shower. I correct this by drilling a hole near the hinge on the bottom. Works great and will cut a slot to drain faster. This prevents the shower door from holding water that when you swing the door open it will spray it on the floor. The factory should have thought of this before shipping.
