I built a new house in May 2013. The Builder used these.
I am in the Northern Zone - Ohio.
With the cold, I had ice build up on the inside with NO humidifier in my house :)

My Simonton Windows were the ProFinish Brickmould 300.

I am trying to find the PG (performance Grade) of these Windows - see Energy Star recommendations. So far, I would say don't buy these and tell your builder NO.

We also had Simonton 5500 replacement windows put in our home. The air comes up the channels on each side of the window. The company we purchased them from also put the small foams pieces at the bottom of each window. It did nothing to stop the air. There is no way these windows are energy efficient. Our home is all brick. Does that make a difference in the installment process? How do we stop the air from coming in? Attached is a picture using a smoke stick with the wind blowing 20 mph. HELP!

I have no actual complaints with the Simonton Windows. The installation is the problem. Unfortunately, I went through Home Depot and have been working with them to fix the issues since they did come with a lifetime warranty. The installer that Home Depot contracted with is the pits. His attitude was horrendous and from what I understand no longer employed by that contractor. The install was so bad, he didn't even caulk the inside of the windows, which of course, led to ice build up in the winter. We'll see how Home Depot does with the repairs to the windows. I wonder if Simonton knows how bad a job is being done with installing their windows?

big box stores are the last and worst place to buy windows from. They can make whatever guarantees they want about installation but you never know the quality of work or experience of the works they use.
