Simonton 5500

Been shopping windows... Looked at the Simonton 5500 which is a replacement window however I was told I can add the nailing fin and the J channel.. Any one have done these for new construction in a colonial house? Any comments or reviews? Its definately more in my budget... Thanks all!!

Solid choice... Definitely better than 90% of the stuff typically used in new construction.
