Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gooo Fantastic doors at a great price.
Received quotes on other doors some installed others not all pushing 3k or more. Took a chance on these and installing myself couldn't be happier. They are super heavy so you need a good helper. Hardware is all heavy duty and looks great. As a previous reviewer helpfully pointed out longer screws are required for the main rail. I did not install the splash guard along my granite curb or the wipers between the glass no issues with water escaping and it looks better.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 116t Easy to adjust and install
I purchased the stainless version and the threads on the door stops were stripped out luckily I work in a welding shop and was able to tack the bolt holder in place. This is why I cant give it 5 stars but then having threaded stainless before myself I know how hard it can be especially fine threads like they used, be sure to use anti-seize on all the threads.
The packing list calls out 2" screws for mounting the horizontal bar but the screws were only 1 3/8" long which in my application I would have had about 3/8" of screw going into the framing. I was able to pick up a 2 pack of 2 1/2" #14 SS screws from homedepot which worked perfect. I know they cant account for every installation situation so I didn't remove any stars for this.
Compared to other bypass style doors this one moves very smoothly since the door is hanging on wheels as apposed to supported from the bottom and sliding. Overall I'm very happy.

This Vigo product is very well thought out and engineered. The top bar is very solid with no flex and the stops and wheels are very solid as well. Nice touches with the eccentric wheel hubs to allow adjustment of door height or angle to meet walls that may be out of square up to 1/2". Installation is a bit tricky due to the weight of the glass, but with a helper it is manageable. Read the directions twice through before installing and you will be fine. I would have rated the door with 5 stars if not for the unpublished green tint to the glass which upset the wife's color scheme.
Pros: Solid, well engineered, very smooth in operation.
Cons: Glass has a greenish tint to it, and I wish the that the inside handle was the same as outside and not just a knub. Also wish the threshold strip had a fixed attachment point like the glass panel bottom clip for the door end.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Stowictom Excellent quality and design at a great price
My wife and I looked at several shower doors at local home improvement, and glass supplier outlets. They were all two to three times the cost of the Home Depot unit so we were very nervous about the quality, and fit and finish of the Home Depot unit, especially since there were none on display. The HD associate said "Buy it, inspect it in the store, and if you don't like it then don't accept it." They looked at us a little funny at the front desk when we started ripping open the box but we were able to see the hardware and the glass were comparable to the expensive units we had seen at the local outlets.
There was one significant defect: in spite of excellent packaging the main support tube was bent. I located the center of the bend and was able to straighten it using my body weight and some blocks. Wouldn't count on that happening again. Thus 4 stars
Also EVERYONE I talked to without exception recommended I hire a professional to do the installation...so of course I did it myself. But having done it I can see why. It took a whole lot of time, planing, and measurement to make sure the install was done right: plumb, level, and waterproof. If you're a skilled craftsman go for it, a Sunday handyman call a pro.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Keng Very attractive unit
The unit overall is great. It came with a defective shower handle that Vigo did replace. Just recently the top rollers have started to run with friction. Ihave checked every thing to make sure nothing shifted. The problem is in the wheels, because for the first two months the door traveled smooth and effortlessly. The company has a two year warranty. I hope they will take care of this.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steven456 An excellent product
The shower door is made with quality parts. I put in a Swanstone shower and wanted a high quality shower door to go with it and I got just what I wanted.I had it installed by a local glass company and it was finished in about 3 hours and it looks great.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AllanC Great Product - exceptionally smooth operation....
Great product. Arrived at my local Home Depot on time as promised. The end result is a fantastic, substantial product that feels good and lends a "high end" touch to one of our full baths. However, the installation is NOT for the faint of heart. Plan on two people to install over at least 1/2 to 3/4 of a day. The instructions are not "step-by-step" and in some cases, very unclear. I would recommend reading the instructions twice at least, if not more. Some of the steps you should consider at the start are listed on some of the final pages associated with the installation. Don't bet me wrong, I am glad I bought this sliding shower door, it is luxurious; just a REAL challenge to install. Glad I did not screw anything up! :-)
