I have the TFP (True Fit Premier).

Likes:

Tall shell

Lock offs (which I think other car seats do have)

Rebound bar

No rethreading

Dislikes:

Very bulky

Difficult (at times) to make the straps tight.


Over all, I love the seat and I hear plenty of good things about the seat :)

Oh and there is a car seat group on here if you didn't know. They are very helpful :)

 I have a My Ride 65, and I really love it. My baby is 6 months, and she seems to like it. She falls asleep really easily in it, and it'll fit her for a long time. It is a bit bulky, but it's lightweight. It's also really easy to install!

I have a TFp as well and love the tall shell,  no rethread harness,lockoffs, cover, and anti redbound bar. Dislikes harness is sometimes tricky to tighten but ive gotten it down and its very wide.

I also have a ETA(Evenflo Triumph Advance)

I love the no rethread harness, tightening knob, the cover, the easy-ness to install. Dislike I think is jsut that it doesnt have straps covers so it makes my daughters neck red but it doesnt seem to bother her so its no a huge deal.

I have the MyRide 65 and LOVE it!

Likes:

It rear-faces up to 40 lbs and forward-faces up to 65 lbs (so it will last a LONG time)

It's very comfortable

It's very easy to install in a vehicle

It's very easy to adjust the straps

It's reasonably priced (anywhere from $88 to $149)

Dislikes:

It's a bit bulky, making a 3 across very unlikely

we have an alpha omega elite by safety first, we HATE it, do not buy one! It is cumbersome and to big, so hard to fit and we drive a mid size suv crossover! we are looking into buying either the True fit Premiere or Graco My Ride 65. I'm just waiting for dh to looks at them (he's deployed) online and I'm going this weekend to see how they fit our daughter and suv.
