I know the highly respected Big Agnes brand, but didn't remember the Seedhouse. I looked it up online, and it looks pretty nice, but how does it do in wind? There seems a vast expanse of unsupported fabric on the sides. Also pretty pricey, over $300 for the 2-man model. I tend to gravitate to 2-man tents even when camping alone, just for the extra room.
As you may know from my trip reports on the GUMO forum, I use the Eureka at the drive-in campgrounds, and save my TarpTent MoTrail for going solo in the backcountry.
Just my two cents, when you mentioned withstanding wind, I was impressed with my Half Dome Plus. http://www.bigbendchat.com/portal/forum/general-outdoor-stuff-camping-equipment/rei-half-dome-plus-(2017)/msg162693/#msg162693
the Alps Mountaineering Extreme 2 is another good option in your price range. https://www.amazon.com/ALPS-Mountaineering-Extreme-Person-Tent/dp/B00BF3T8W2
