Thermastar by Pella Windows
Rating 2.5

"The window is a slider-type. I do notice the trickle of air through the weep holes that someone else mentioned. It doesn't really bother me, though. The lock sometimes catches and you have to fiddle with it a minute to get it to lock." -Red Headed Step Child
