Hi Alex,
I have been using DesignBuilder for over a year now. Its nice front end user-interface for EnergyPlus.

Excellent drawing tool
Good graphical interface
USerfriendly interface; co-ordinate and logic-driven 

Does not have all simulation capabilities of Energyplus; for ex. detailed HVAC. This has been taken care of in the newer version though

If you have any questions feel free to ask. I'm quiet a novice with it but will try my best to answer them.
