Milgard Window Prices
Milgard window prices are in the middle of the pack for vinyl window manufacturers (their Quiet Line is quite pricy, but is probably the best soundproof window on the market). Milgard produces solid windows that offer good performance in the mid price range. Primarily available on the west coast, they can be found in some other areas as well. They have a reputation for good windows and good customer service. Read Milgard windows reviews.
Milgard Style Line Price
Milgard's Styline is a thinner framed, more modern looking window with uneven sightlines and more glass than the Tuscany. It doesn't have a vent lock or weep hole covers, and features an elevated locking mechanism. It is less expensive than the Tuscany (about 10%), largely because the increased glass makes it less energy efficient. It's a great choice for smaller windows openings or if you just can't afford the Tuscany.

Milgard Tuscany Windows Price
The Tuscany is Milgards most popular window. Priced about 10% higher than the Styline, it has better efficiency ratings and a thicker frame. The classic look is popular and fits many home styles. Upgrades include an upgraded lock, vent stops, a wider spacer and higher quality screen. If you add on the 3D Max glass package it becomes a real competitor with the Simonton 7300 or the standard Champion model. The lifetime warranty includes glass breakage. The U-value is 0.29 and the SHGC is 0.21. It isn't a top-shelf window that grabs the attention, but it's a solid performer that looks good and really lasts. In terms of cost, the Milgard Tuscany window should be similar to Champion windows prices.

Milgard Ultra Windows Cost
The Ultra, Milgard's fiberglass window frame, is decent but often rated behind Marvin's Integrity and Infinity when looking at fiberglass. It doesn't have the curb appeal of some competitors, but it does have a great option for a real wood interior. The warranty is very good and it's a great choice if you really want fiberglass but can't quite afford the Marvins.

Milgard Quiet Line Cost
The Quiet Line is a specialty soundproofing window made by Milgard. The price is much higher than their other windows, but they are specially designed to eliminate noise pollution. With an STC rating of 46, it is similar in noise reduction quality to glass used in recording studios, which are usually around 50-55 STC. The frame is thick and bulky to support the thicker glass. It's too expensive for a lot of homeowners, but if you have noise problems and can afford them, they can really make a difference. Other soundproof windows to consider include the Simonton 9800 series with laminated glass.

Milgard Tuscany Costs vs Anlin Del Mar
I am replacing 4 windows (2 are 71.25 x 46.5 sliders with a SW sunset with full aluminum encasement and 2 are bathroom windows 32 x 48 single hang low sun area) to block construction. I like both the Milgard Tuscany and the Anlin Del Mar but since I am in the Phoenix Metro area I was leaning more to the Del Mar but they are around $700 more expensive. Pleas give me your input. Thank you.
[Site Editor's Response]
Joanne, I would say the Tuscany and the Anlin Del Mar windows are pretty equivalent, I might give the slight nod to the Del Mar. I like the Tuscany though and assuming good installation on both, I would probably choose the Tuscany and save the $700. The only factors that would tip my choice in the other direction would be colors that the Del Mar comes in over the Tuscany or again the quality of the installation team who will be doing the work.
Bottom line is that I think you've got a couple of very nice windows and with good installation, you should be happy with either.
