I purchased this shower door as a replacement for a builder-grade door that had gotten old-looking and rusted in some areas. This MAXX Insight door appeared to be a good deal. I purchased the door a little over a month ago, but just installed it 3 days ago.
Installation was not fun nor all that easy. Not extremely hard, but not easy. The manual was inconsistent with regard to the parts and which part was which. This made installation take more time than it should have, because you have to spend time trying to figure it out. However, I installed it alone. It does not need necessarily take two people.
In any case, the shower door is in and it looks great. I noticed a couple of inconspicuous scratches in the glass after installing and removing all the little stickers, (that I didn't place there), but I'll just deal with it. Everything is all siliconed already. Overall, (so far) I think it's a great product for the money.
I also purchased new chrome shower head with trim. Looks like a brand new shower.

This is a nice door, and worth the money. The only problems that I had were: 1) the wide frame piece was damaged (bent) and the installer was already here.. We did our best to straighten the piece, and made it look OK. Damaged in shipment?? and 2) the hole in the glass door for the door knob was way bigger than the screw provided, and there was no bushing. So we hand made a bushing and did our best to center the knob in the hole.
MAAX also has a product line issue, since they have strange gaps in the door opening sizes that they cover. Anyone with a 36" shower base needs to order the smaller size door, and then use a spacer piece of some waterproof material, in order to accomodate a 34" wide door opening.
Otherwise, this is a nice door, and it looks good.

Not a true frameless door and I knew that going in. For the price it couldn't be beat. It's a super heavy/sturdy door. Looks ten times better than the standard builder door that it replaced.
Assembly: now that's a whole other review. My dad helped me put this door on. In the beginning things were going smoothly. Then we ran into a couple of issues towards the end. First, the screw numbers in the package didn't match up with the booklet numbers. We figured that out fairly okay. Then the door hinges are supposed to screw/unscrew according to how wide you need the door to be. Well the screw wouldn't twist. We had to take the door off and put all of our weight into turning the screwdriver to adjust the hinge. The only way to know if it's enough is to put the door back on and check. Well after a few times of doing this the screw stripped out. We had to take the hinge completely apart to manually twist it with a set of pliers. We did this so many times we became delirious. Which is probably why we couldn't figure out what this really long piece of metal was for. It wasn't listed in the instruction booklet anywhere. The door was not lining up properly and we knew this piece had something to do with it but we had to stop and take a break at this point. Ours brains were hurting. This was about 3 hours in because of those dang hinge screws. After a food break we were able to figure the final pieces out that weren't labeled and we put the door together. Had the pieces been labeled properly and worked flawlessly, we would have had the door done in probably an hour to an hour and a half MAX!
Would I buy this door again and install it? ABSOLUTELY! :)

This product comes from Canada. My first door arrived damaged. Maxx was quick to order a replacement but it took 2 weeks to arrive and did not fit the hardware shipped with the first door. 2 more weeks, and new hardware arrived. The instruction manual parts number list does not match the numbers on each part, and Maxx said "yes, that is a problem we are trying to fix". This made the installation extremely difficult and time consuming for my contractor, a professional who has done plenty of shower doors. Once installed, it looks nice for the price, but not worth the hassle
