Crystal Pacific Window Quality
I am in the process of deciding what windows to purchase. I had never heard of Anlin until a friend mentioned them. You seem to have high regard for them and I am comparing them to the Milgard Tuscany. Based on what I read, you feel it is a toss-up as to which is better and to judge the installers and price as higher priorities. I am in Long Beach, CA.
So, there is a company that I want to get your opinion on Crystal Pacific Windows. Have you heard of them and what can you tell me about them. They seem to be close to half the cost of the Milgard which alone makes me concerned about the quality of the window.
Also, I am looking for a Kitchen / Side yard door and am considering a door with a glass insert and a blind in the glass. This door gets fairly heavy midday sun and minimal afternoon/evening sun.

[Site Editor's Answer]
John, I don't know much about Crystal Pacific windows. I did look them up on the nfrc.org website to look at some of their performance numbers and they appear to be okay. I'm sort of assuming that the company like many smaller manufacturers makes a sort of mid range vinyl window that is marketed towards the price conscious consumer.
Since you live in Long Beach where the climate is quite mild, I would say you may be just fine with this option. If this is your forever home, however, I would probably advise to go with the Anlin or Milgard, which are proven companies with good track records.
Crystal Pacific does include an accidental glass breakage and limited lifetime warranty (only 10 years on ownership transfers though). Normally, I look at the warranty not as a benefit for the consumer, but as a gauge of what the company thinks of their own product - they seem to be offering a decent product by this gauge.
I think there may be some value in the Crystal Pacific windows, but I would also say that the window is probably going to be weaker than the Anlin/Milgard option.
