Rated 4.0 out of 5.0Â by David Excellent Frame and Rollers
The ONLY reason I am giving this 4 stars instead of 5 is because one of the wheels that came on one of the rollers included has some ridges on it which cause some added noise when rolling back and forth. I managed to sand it down with some fine sand paper to eliminate most of it. All of the other wheels seem fine. The bearings are smooth. Overall, this door frame feels much more stout and sturdy than the standard pre-built garbage. I would definitely recommend this one over the lower cost models due to the quality of the rollers, track, and materials used. I ordered it from HD.com and it came within a couple of days, very fast. Box was undamaged and everything inside was there. I do recommend watching the video on the Johnson website. It's a lot more thorough than the directions. Overall a quality product. And I would also recommend the locking door handle shown in my photo. It is a Kwikset Model # 335 15 RND PCKT DR LCK Internet # 100044911 Store SO SKU # 586414. Defintely a good lock if that's what you are looking for.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0Â by DIYca well-built, not so well documented or retail supported
The manufacturer could make this a *lot* easier to install for diy-ers like me by including one more page of instructions detailing with pictures steps that are treated with one sentence and assume someone who as already installed pocket doors. The store could make it a lot easier to finish the installation by keeping the complementary JH 1510 jamb kit in stock. As finished, it works great because I used a spiral saw to cut a channel in the door bottom and installed a guide inside the pocket that keeps the door centered in the pocket without scratching on the JH supplied door guides.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by MR292 Simple Design, Easy to Install
I installed the 30" frame for a 30" door,so no trimming was needed and I can not comment on trimming the frame. Once you frame out your opening, the installation is very strait forward. The video on Johnson website is excellent and makes installallation easy. I purchased the HD model and the rollers are very smooth and high quality. I would have no hesistation on purchasing this product again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0Â by DVWit Overall Pretty Good
I had a few minutes of consternation when the package arrived as the box said it was for a door opening larger than the one I ordered but, I knew that it could be cut down, if necessary. It turns out they must use a generic box showing the door opening size and then put a sticker on the top end of the box for the actual size inside the box.
The hardware is sturdy and the rollers seem strong enough to last for many years. The instructions are clear and complete. My only complaint is that two of the four split studs had a fair amount of warp to them. These days it seems harder and harder to find wood that isn't warped to some degree but especially being encased in metal I didn't think these items would have that much warp. That is the reason for knocking the rating from 5 to 4.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by Rich High quality and easy to install
I needed a pocket door to maximize space in my master bedroom. I ordered the Johnson 1500 series pocket door frame from Home Depot on-line, it was delivered on time and the delivery was free. I thought it would be difficult to install since I never installed one before. The installation was a snap, the instructions were easy to understand and well written. Make sure you follow them and level your work. I can't wait to drywall and hang the door and apply the trim!
