 Are all Lowes/HD windows poor quality?

Author: Novice (---.nd.edu)
Date:   

I've seen the comments on this site about Pella cutting their quality to sell in Home Depot, then Lowes, and have heard that, for appliances in general, Home Depot pressures companies to cut their prices even if they have to cut quality to do so. Are there any reasonable (not the best, just reasonable) windows at Lowes or Home Depot?

I'll need to replace three windows in the room over my garage soon. Shuco sounds good, but this is a seldom-used, out of the way room. Is it worth calling in a contractor and getting top of the line windows only for 3 remote windows? I hope to own this house for many years but may have to move in just a year or two. If I'm still here in 4 years, I may go for a full set of Shuco for the rest of the house, but would like to economize at this point for the room over the garage.

Thanks for any help!

    Picture window prices

    Shape windows are disproportionately expensive.
    Tempered glass drives up the price and there is little difference between DH and Pic windows.
