You'll rarely get a better pre-hung door than the ones built locally. When you order from a local millwork shop you can immediately reject bad doors and have the opportunity to communicate with the manufacturing supervisor directly where-as a box store orders them from God knows where and if there is a problem all they'll do is order a new one. Also, wait times from local millwork shops are usually only a few days versus weeks for an ordered unit from afar. Most companies order their slabs from Masonite for hollow core doors. As long as they are cut properly they work just as well as others. There really aren't many large scale door slab manufacturers. There are plenty of names branded on doors but most of them are made in the same few plants. The big thing to look at is the quality of the finished product which is why I recommend have the assembly done locally.

For normal hollow-core or hardwood laminate doors, I have had good luck with Premier Products doors both for blanks and pre-hung - at least the wood ones are made in Canada, may not be readily available further from the border. They also make metal and security doors for residential and commerical applications.
