Haven't seen anything here about the Magic Window, so I thought I'd get my 2 cents in...
Two years ago I replaced all 12 of my single-pane aluminums with various styles of the Magic Window. I could not have made a better decision. I shopped them all before deciding, but once I saw the Magic Window, all the rest seemed old and obsolete. Time has not chantged my judgement. These are windows I never tire of showing off. People who think a window is a window is a window are amazed. Sliders swing inwardly. Casements don't need cranks. The locking system that makes all others look like toys. All sorts of thoughtful design features. And best of all, no ugly screen! I hate screens! They rob light and views, and they are ugly, ugly, ugly! The Magic Window folks were the only ones thoughtful and innovative enough to get rid of the damn things. Until you open the Magic Window, the screen is wound up and hidden inside the frame. As you open the window, the screen unfurls. This is a great feature and one I could not find on any other sliding or casement window.
The windows arrived (SF Bay Area)quickly and were expertly installed. Got them from Window and Door Alternatives in Campbell. Nice floks.
Anyway, I love my Magic Windows. Eager to hear of others' experiences.
