Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cb3143 They are what we thought they were; and we bought'em anyway!
Bought two sets. They were clean and unscathed. Easy to install for a newb. They are hollow which means if you rest them on a corner, expect some damage. If you want high quality doors, spend more. If you want something nice to replace some old, dirty louvere doors left by the previous owner of the home, these might be right for you too. Takeaways: 1) don't balance them on the corners. 2) don't expect hollow doors to have the same quality as solid. 3) wife really likes them and hope to replace all our closet doors with these.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Meredith Unbelievable disappointment
These are so flimsy and ugly, I can't believe Home Depot (or Jen weld) actually sells these doors. Hollow core doors are pretty standard in homes in the last 60-70 years, so I was not expecting anything super solid and heavy, but I was expecting something fairly attractive as many composite doors are these days. I knew these doors were plastic when I ordered then, but I was expecting rigid plastic. The doors that arrived were FLIMSY PLASTIC. Like plastic water bottle flimsy. Horrible.
If I could give these zero stars, I would. They were a total waste of hope and money. Luckily Home Depot let us return them.

I love this style, but when I received the door, it was really low quality, especially at this price. If it was a $50 door, I wouldn't be complaining.
These are flimsy and very prone to damage. The white paint is matte, almost like primer, and every touch shows (should be a semi-gloss for wipeablity). I have the smallest size for a bi-fold door, and this door & hardware are so flimsy, it should've come with a full lower track. This feels odd every time I open it and I don't think the hardware/door will stand up to daily use.
Even the door knob that came with it is cheap. Shame on Jenwen for charging so much for this cheepo product. I'm very disappointed (and frustrated because I haven't found another craftsman style).

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Shareholder Flimsy hardware / door fell apart within one year
Doors had to be trimmed by Home Depot (according to the instructions of the manufacturer), and when I unpacked the box, there were large scuff marks from where the doors had been handled. Scuffs were on interior sides, so they weren't noticeable. Problems are with the hardware -- the very items that need to be engineered for heavy duty use -- are flimsy and not up to the task. The overhead track is made of thin metal, which flexed so much, that the mounting units that sit inside the track needed constant tightening. Within one year, the plastic pivots then snapped and the bottom edge of the door caved in. Knobs are flimsy and also needed to be tightened often. Very disappointed with both the manufacturer and with Home Depot. "Buyer Beware"

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by babs nice looking door
We had these Craftsman style Jen Weld doors installed throughout our vacation cottage to replace the original flat hollow core doors. What a difference! We got just the look we hoped for and we were pleasantly surprised by the weight and appearance of the doors. We also purchased them on sale which was an added bonus. The fact that they come already primed made painting a breeze.
We were disappointed that we could not find an entry door to match. We ended up choosing a raised panel entry door from Jen Weld rather than a recessed panel. Not the end of the world. I highly recommend these doors.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by flashoffroad Poor quality
I wanted a craftsman bifold door and this was seemingly the only option. I had purchased a set of Jeldwen french doors last year that were better made and I thought these would be the same. I waited a long time for them to come and when I unpacked them one of the lower corners had been crushed showing me that the door looked like it was made from sawdust and glue molded into a shape. We don't use the closet much and I didn't want to start from scratch and try and find another door so I didn't return them.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Trapper Great Purchase
I did have a bit of a problem with the installation since I was installing them in an old doublewide trailer from the 70's. The instructions state that only small amounts can be removed from the height and sides of the doors since they are hollow. I did remove 1-1/2" from the bottom. I then just filled it with
a block of wood which I glued in place. Overall, these door are very good quality and look great. The finish paint is beautiful. I don't feel you would have to paint them if you choose not to

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sanfranlvr The doors look great
These doors are a huge improvement over what was in the space before. One caveat - I strongly recommend you purchase the doors BEFORE building your door opening. The doors were advertised as 72 x 80. The installation instructions said to add 1/2 inch to the width and 1.5 inches to height for installation, so I had my contractor build the opening to 72.5" x 81.5". When the doors arrived, the carton read, "72 x 80 5/8". This concerned me, as I knew 81.5" would not be enough clearance if the doors were 80 5/8" tall. However, when I opened the carton and measured, the doors were actually 71.5" x 79". This means we had to add about an inch of wood at the bottom, so there is a fairly significant gap between the floor and the bottom of the doors. In my view, it is better the opening was too big as opposed to too small, as the doors were finished and I would not have wanted to "shave" them to make them fit. But the 72 x 80 more accurately represents the door opening and not the measurement of the doors themselves.
