Not a bad price.

What is the air infiltration, VT, SHGC, and DP on that window.

thats a darn good price ;i imagine thats a replacement and not new construction? new construction would be more but 500 is a very good price for that window.

That is a good deal providing you get a top notch installation. The pricing is along the lines in what I've seen other BF Rich dealer sell that model for. BF Rich is pretty close (to Philly) for future warranty problems if they should ever arise.

Any air numbers...?

Pretty good numbers. Tiny bit dark for those thermal numbers.

4got to ask for the air infiltration numbers when I call B.F. Rich direct.
Its solorban 60 NOT 70, They only use 60 and they do the glazing on-site.

Not bad numbers for a $500.00 window/capping install !!!!!!
