Safety 1st Essential Air Harnessed Booster Seat

Does anyone have this booster seat?  Our DD is approaching the weight limit on her convertible car seat, so we are looking to replace it.  We have a Britax Frontier 85 in the other car, but I was wondering if I could save some money with this one.

Please tell me the good, bad and ugly!  I have only been able to find one review, and it was not helpful.

 I am confused.  everywhere I look they are the same price as the Frontier 85 yet harness to only 65 pounds and have a shortner harness height.

 Not to mention PERSONALLY I never buy anything that is brand new when it first comes out cars....seats.....electronics etc.   And to add to this it hasn'thad a chance to be rated by the IIHS.  would make me nervous.  But as I said my real deal breaker is no savings lower harness weight and height.  I am beginning to wonder if ANYONE can compete with the frontier 85.

Costco has the Safety 1st for about $160 and I have not seen the Britax for less then $200.

Quoting FlyingMommy747:

 Does that include shipping???  Diapers.com had the Frontier for $179 free shipping about a month ago. I don't know if the code still works or not.    And sorry I don't consider 40 bucks enough of a savings on an untested seat that has shortener harness height and 25 pounds less harness weight and 20 pound less for booster weight a big savings.  Amazon has it for 208 free shipping

It's not a commonly recommended seat.

You can find great deals on the FN85, go with that.  :)
