Okna Insul-tec Deluxe, Great Lakes Bayshore or Simonton 6500

Hi, I'm shopping around for replacement windows. I was hoping someone can shed some light on the following windows. Are they comparable? Which is better?

They all have different glass and outfitted options.

In terms of profile thickness (i.e. visible light), air tightness, and best thermal numbers (when maxed out), the Okna is the better of the 3.

How are they being compared in terms of options?

I have to agree 100% . The performance numbers on the okna far exceed those of the others, especially the simonton. Most dramatic will be the superior air infiltration rating on the okna opposed to siminton which is very high and also very outdated in terms of design.

Hate that a post would be so one-sided, but I'd agree. The performance numbers on the Okna are a level or two better in every measurable way
