I have just started rehabbing properties and don't know the first thing about replacement windows... At this point what I want to know is how much of a difference is there in various brands... So far I've bought about 30 windows from Home Depot (American Craftsman) While I was there I was told the other quote I received (from somewhere else) was on an inferior product (brand: Quality Windows)... I've been searching the web to find how different manufacturers compare, but have not found any answers... Is there anything I should look out for or avoid? What do you know about the following brands?

American Craftsman (from Home Depot)
Quality
Silverline
Custom Shield
Traco

Thanks so much for your input!!!
