Great Quality, Great Price, but...

Summary: This car seat looks extremely comfortable when my son is awake, when he is asleep his head falls forward and hangs to the side which I know can not be comfortable. I have the seat in full recling mode and it still does not recline as far back as it needs to.
Summary: We have gone through three seats. This one is the best. Easy to lock in securely. Easy to move between cars. Easy to secure the little one in. Little one sits very comfortably. Love idea it will last him for a few years in both height and weight. We are ordering a second one.
Excerpt: This safety 1st Alpha Omega Elite Convertible Car Seat really does put safety first. Although I think the Alpha Omega Elite part of the title is a bit of an exaggeration, this car seat does seem very safe for my child.
Excerpt: I bought this seat for my daughter when she grew out of her newborn seat. I wanted something that would last so I wouldn’t have to keep buying car seats. She moved into it around 4-5 months old rear facing. When the seat is rear facing it takes up a LOT of space in the car.
Excerpt: This seat as marketed as the only seat you'll ever need which is completely UNTRUE! Yes, it will work for an infant/toddler rear facing, a toddler in 5 pt harness forward facing AND a child in booster mode, but it expires in 6 years.Ease of InstallationNot terribly difficult to get a proper install.
Excerpt: I am a car seat tech and I HATE when a parent comes in with this seat for me to install. For one it doesn't fit newborns like it claims to. For rear facing in the car a the straps must be at or below the shoulder to protect the child.
Excerpt: We have this car seat in my husband's car. I can't even begin to say how much we love it. He has a hatch back and it fits really well in the car. So even though it looks large, for people with smaller interiors it actually fits really well. It is also easy to adjust.
