Let's not go overboard on windows, please.  Check all the stats and you will see that even a Low-E replacement may only save $10 a year, and this for a $4-600 investment.  We recently followed an auditor into a house after he diagnosed a cold bedroom as needing caulk around the window trim when it was a missing band joist in the floor where it cantilevered out into the front porch pent roof - really easy to spot from the street as you drive by and even easier to diagnose properly.  And this auditor was both BPI and RESNET certified.  Let's all agree that windows and receptacle gaskets mean nothing (with rare exceptions) and move on to the real problems.

I fully agree; windows are very rarely the right place to make efficiency improvements. There are usually many other weak spots in a home that don't cost nearly as much to improve.
The better question would be which of the products are US Dept. of Energy approved as the country is moving towards National Weatherization and Energy Retrofit Standards!

Rick...you hit the nail on the head. BPI announced last fall that they were developing something for the EPA I believe...who is merging programs with DOE
