I'm finding the various reviews and websites rather overwhelming and sometimes contradictory. I want to replace 40-year-old windows and a patio door (9 windows) soon. My choices of installer and product may be limited. What ones really work for a cold northern climate and a reasonable cost?

Pretty simple actually, the performance ratings are independently tested, tell you how a product will ACTUALLY perform, and are excellent indicators of overall quality. The top products are getting u values under .26 in double pane, double hung, and air infiltration ratings of as low as .01.

What state and major city are you near? With that we will sometimes know what products are available in your area.
Also if you take a bit of time and read through post here you will gain a large amount of objective information quickly.
You have two major components to this decision...
1. product selection
2. Installation
each is critical for a successful project.
