Has anyone used these acrylic block windows?

Am considering using this hopper window for basement, would very much appreciate any opinions.

Thank you!

Haven't used them personally but they seem to be well received by folks that have used them.

Nothing to technologically intensive about the application and it should work fine.

Thank you windowsonwashington!

I found them on-line, and my builder thinks they look good, just cannot find any reviews.

They aren't re-inventing the wheel so you should be fine.

From what I remember they are very pricey, I would consider a traditional vinyl hopper. You could add obscure or rain glass with grids to mimic the look or even go with standard glass block.

Thanks toddinmn, that is a great idea.

I agree with Todd's advice. No sense in paying a premium for a glass block "look", unless you really love it.
