Amsco Windows Prices
Amsco windows prices range from $350 to $800 fully installed, depending on the model or series you select and the glass package and upgrades you opt for. Amsco is known for producing low end to mid range vinyl windows, along with their sound control Serenity and their composite Renaissance model. In general, their vinyl windows get okay to decent reviews, while their sound control window gets props as an affordable noise reduction option.
One of the big knocks against Amsco and one that consumers need to be aware of is the number of warranty complaints from homeowners and buyers. The company offers a warranty, however they tend to rely on their distributors and local companies that sell and install their windows to provide an installation warranty. The net result is lower up front window cost, but little to no recourse if something goes wrong with the windows once the installation warranty has expired.
All in all, Amsco makes a decent window, but certainly nowhere near the top of the heap. Their warranty issue I believe should be a cause of concern for homeowners, but if the price is right initially, maybe consumers take a chance. If I knew I wasn't going to be in the house for a long time, I suppose the window warranty is not a huge deal. (The subsequent owner may not agree with this...)

Rich, painting your vinyl windows will typically void the warranty, but I'm assuming this isn't an issue anymore. Amsco is sort of known for not servicing their warranty with any sort of regularity.
Whatever color you paint your vinyl windows should completely hide whatever color is beginning to show along the vinyl walls. I have heard of this problem from several manufacturers -- I believe it's a lower quality vinyl that is to blame. I would first try to contact whoever put the windows in to see whether they know any more information...then paint them whatever color looks the best on your home.
