Diono R120-Overall-I am very pleased.
I like this car seat. It looks good. My granddaughter (age 6) can fasten herself into the 5 point harness; which is a huge plus. The price was better at Albee's than anywhere else I looked. It is heavy but the description tells you that. It was also not as easy to install as the video suggested. The safety reviews makes it worth some bother. I have owned three other car seats and none were really easy to install. I am glad I made this purchase. Delivery was quick and purchase was easy. If needed, I would purchase another from Albee.

This car seat's steel frame gives me peace of mind as a parent of 2 young kids. The fact that you can use these for so long is so great! I have a 2 year old and a 6 month old I also have a car so the fact that these are slim is GREAT. My son loves the cupholder and sleeps in the seat well. I'm a big reasearcher when it comes to anything I buy. This was one of the best car seats and this site always had it cheaper than anywhere else! Thanks Albee Baby and Diono! Maybe some floral designs next??? :)

Love Diono
This company piqued my interest after a photo circulated online that clearly showed Diono's superior engineering. I ended up buying them for all my children including 2 Radians and this model. My son is 8 and just now outgrew the 5pt harnass. I love their higher weight and height limits. He will now be using it as a booster.

Our favorite convertible seat
We have now bought 5 Dionos -- 3 for our children and 2 for friends. Every child who has transitioned from a cheap car seat into a Diono has gone from crying at every ride to sitting peacefully. We would hate to be uncomfortable in the car, and so do our kids! Do yourself and the babies a favor by starting out with Dionos. :)

Love Love Love
We have the Radian and RXT (only difference I find is the side head rests). This car seat is solid, the cover is very easy to remove and clean (as kids are messy), they are narrow for passengers to sit beside comfortably, and I love that my child can sit backwards for longer (safest position). I work in the emergency services and it brings me comfort that my child is in a full metal frame and is safe.

Have bought 2, buying a 3rd
I bought one for my two year old, and I bought a second later for my one year old. I love them. Only con is that it is heavy, but that's just part of the deal for something safe. Both my children love sitting in it more than the other seat I had, we have no fight about these seats. Perfect seat and fits three across in my 2011 VW sportwagon.

Good carseat
We have been using this for a few weeks now. I think installation was easy (I did latch by myself). I wasn't able to find a rear facing tether, so am hoping that the carseat is secure enough in my BMW 328i. Carseat fits well, and it is not as bad for the front seat passenger, as some people mention reviewing this carseat, as we are not even using a wedge. Quite opposite, I like the recline and that my toddler can be relatively comfortable in it after his infant carseat. My toddler can look out and it is a big plus as he is not as bored as in other carseats.
ProsFits well in the vehicle, provides good recline in rear-facing position
ConsRear tether not available in all vehicles

Great seat
We already had an rxt so were very familiar with the seat. For slim seats and safety it doesn't get any better. We decided to get this instead of the rxt because we really don't need the head flaps, they just block the kids view and I think my older one might need more shoulder room soon. Plus it's cheaper, win win.

3rd diono & love it
This is my 3rd diono & I absolutely love this brand. This is my first purchase on this website & I purchased my previous 2 dionos (which are still being used by eldest two) at another store but the price on this website was unbeatable. Quick arrival & also a quick response from customer service with a question I had (unrelated to any issues). Great experience & I will return to this site for future purchases.

Fits three across
I love this car seat, my daughter can get in and out of it very easily. It is nice and slim yet gives enough room to grow. I like how sturdy and secure this seat is in my 2014 GMC Terrain. I have the RXT, R120 and a chicco infant that fits so I do not have to compromise trunk space with another baby arriving in 3 weeks (the 2 Diono seats are forward facing for a 5 &3 year old). I have nothing but good things to say so far, and I have had the car seats for two weeks.
ConsNone so far!
Best UsesFits 3 across! Awesome weight limit for forward facing 5 point harness.

It's great once it's setup
The seat came in several parts and had to be put together. I had to read the instructions again and again because it certainly wasn't clear where things like the cup holders fit. I have twins so I had to put two of these together. Once they are in the car and installed they are awesome. Mine are both forward facing. My two year olds can climb right in. That's a huge advantage over my old car seat -recaro proride. Plus the seats fit side by side. The only small downside is when you adjust the seatbelt it's a ratcheting lever so it takes longer to get the seat belt tight around your kid. (I'm talking about the 5 point harness, not the car seat belts.)
ProsLow profile so kids can climb in and out once they are unbuckled.
ConsSeats sit very straight up and there isnt a good place for toddlers to rest their heads. I don't like how Diono provides extra straps that aren't built into the car seat. I had to switch out one of the straps due to my kids weight according to the instructions and now I have to hope I don't misplace the other strap until it's time to switch it back out. Also the ratcheting lever for the seatbelts. This could be faster and more efficient by using a different lever. The chest clip is huge. It makes it hard to gauge if the clip is at armpit level. If we were actually in an accident my kids face would surely hit the chest clip. There's no way to avoid it because it is so oversized. Their is velcro padding on the straps surrounding the chest clips. My kids have figured out within the first week how to undo the Velcro. Lastly the sides of the seat can open wider as your child gets bigger. However my two year olds are able to adjust it because it takes such little force to adjust. I wish it had a more secure way to adjust the seat width.
Best UsesWhen you need to fit three car seats across the backseat.

Great quality
Purchased this car seat for my 18 month old son. Quality of car seat is impeccable. Extremely narrow but still spacious inside. I will defiantly use this as a booster as well. Very happy with my purchase from Albee they had the best price around!
Best UsesGreat for parents of multiple children. The slim design leaves more room for accessing seat belts.

Excellent car seat
Very slim design so doesn't take up too much space and my little one can see out of the sides of the seat. Very sturdy and comfortable - she sleeps easily in it when we are on long car rides.

Must Buy!
I bought this for my first son when he was about 10 months old. It is heavy, but so sturdy and narrow, while not sacrificing comfort. He's used it rear facing, forward facing, and we've flown with it several times. It fits down the aisle of the plane!!! I bought a cart to roll it on with him strapped in like a stroller right down the aisle (Britax car seat travel cart- you snap it on with LATCH) so he and I have flown by ourselves over 10 times with ease! I will be buying another for my youngest son when he outgrows the infant seat without hesitation. LOVE this seat!

I am a carseat snob
These are sturdy and will keep my children safe. But so will a cosco. we chose these because we needed 3 across in our Subaru Impreza. The materials are high quality. BUT... They're complicated! the manual alone was overwhelming (40+ pages and that's only one language). The buckle that comes up between the legs is way too short - my boys are always squished and getting pinched, which makes putting them in the seat very tricky. The shoulder strap padding is constantly coming off and is bulky. Also... I'm a carseat snob. I don't love any of the car seats we've tried (we have 7). They're all cumbersome, frustrating, hard to clean and annoying to install. This one was particularly complicated.

Radian 120 and 100
We have a radian 120 in our babys main transporting vehicle and a radian 100 in other vehicle. Cushioning is great, instruction videos are easy to follow, the straps adjusted easily on both models and feel well made. It is heavy but when considering construction and safety reviews it is justified. In some ways the option to fold down and carry (airtravel, etc) is awesome BUT remember it's a Beast. It has tuck holes in back construction to 'hide' excess straps which is nice with rear facing. They both have the front tether system for rear facing. The one improvement I would suggest, is on the seat belt tracking area it is opened towards the back. So when trying to feed through belt while carseat is rear facing the seat belt tends to fall in that notch. My husband and I are both rather tall and have larger hands. Needless to say it was probably more difficult for us then average adult. So slap a thin piece of plastic to cover notch as a 'guide' for the seat belt and I'd be happy as a clam. Overall we love the radians and if more babies are ever added to our family we will be buying more.

Love it for the safety
I love it because of it's safety ratings. With that frame, there's little doubt in my mind that this is one of the safest car seats available and at a very good price. It is heavy. We tried moving it between cars rather than buying an additional car seat, but decided ultimately that we needed the second one. Installing looked way trickier than it actually was. I would like for it to anchor when rear-facing, but we don't have the anchors. We also bought this because our little bean outgrew his infant seat at 10 months (he's tall) and I'm a huge fan of the extended rear facing height and weight limits. We chose this over the clek models because of pricing. He'll be in this car seat until he outgrows it as a high back booster, and I love that it has such a long expiration date, so even my little guy is done with it, it may still be useful for any siblings or cousins for a couple of years. I'm not sure it's possible to make a product as durable and safe as this light and easy to install. Overall I love it, but only give 4 stars due to difficulty moving it car to car.

Worth the money for us
We purchased our first Radian for our 3 year old. We needed to fit three car seats in a row 1-2x/week. But after assembling it, we loved the memory foam and realized that our 22 mo old's carseat had zero padding. So we decided to use it for her instead, and we purchased the angle adjuster since she's still rear facing and will be dor awhile. So then because our aim was to have slim carseats, we ordered the second one for the 3 year old again. They are slim, but because the seat that I need to install in the middle 1-2x/week is not a slim Diono, I have to install both of these with the seat belts instead of LATCH, to give a bit more room in the middle. The LATCH connectors are super nice though. Sometimes my 3 yr old wants "sides" on her seat, but that's what we gave up for wanting slim seats. One con is the cup holder. It's cool that there are 4 different spots to put it, but it's too easy for both of my kids to take it out (and tricky to get back in). So we can't use them until the kids stop playing with them. And the con about it being heavy is how it goes with a sturdy, steel frame.

Love it so far!
I've always bought britax for my kids. I really liked the high safety ratings from consumer reports, but I don't like buying an infant seat, convertible seat and finally a booster seat. It's very costly to buy several seats, and I have 4 kids in seats. I was sold on the R120's high ratings and 10 year life. It was super easy to install in my 2014 Honda Odyssey. It fits perfectly on the tiny middle row seat. Installation was actually a breeze, I was kinda surprised. I'm eventually going to buy another one of these for my britax marathon that expires in November. I bought this for my 1 year old who is still rear facing.
ProsEasy install
ConsKinda heavy, but not too bad.

Perfect choice for travelers!
I researched for weeks before purchasing the Diono Radian R120 for my oldest daughter in early 2013. It was the top of the line in safety then and still is now in mid-2015 so I have purchased a second for my second daughter. The seat folds up to allow for slimmer transporting, is Airline approved, higher backed to allow for longer rear-facing (proven to be the safest position for children!) and it's slim enough to allow 3 Radians to be used side by side in a backseat. I highly recommend this seat! (Also purchased the first from Albee Baby and received very quick free shipping.)
ProsHigh back for extended rear facing, fold up seat for travel, airline approved, steel core

Narrow Carseat
Carseat is great for caravans since it only takes up 1 seat. It is heavy but folds easy and has a strap which helps if you need to carry it. I'd say the only setback is the foam insert you have to buy. The foam helps elevate the seat so that you don't crowd the seat in front. Seat is narrow and long. Anyhow they should just add the foam insert and not charge extra. Other than that so far so good.Plus I have tall kids so a seat like this is worth the investment since they will not grow out of it.

Great seat
we love this seat I've had it since my 5 year old was two and a half and he's been in since then. He was rear facing all the way until four and a half and now is forward facing in it. He finds it very comfortable and was reluctant to let his little brother ride in it when we took a family trip and he used a different seat. He will outgrow the seat by height in a year or two and then he'll have to give it away to his little brother but he's not currently looking forward to it. I love the low sides so that its easier to get your child in and out of the seat, especially when rear facing. I also like that it doesn't have head wings that can get in the way with a taller child.

Great sest once you know the ins and outs
Overall I am happy with this seat, my 3 year old has been in it since 9 months and is still rf. Features I love: Rear-face to 45 lbs--this will get most kids to 3-4 years old easily Low profile--easy to get him in and out in my small vehicle Comfortable padding-- for long rides He is always comfortable Ability to rf tether Narrow so it allows 2 other seats or passengers in the back seat Features that could be improved: Angle rf--I do have the angle adjuster, and it is a must if you have seAt installed behind the passenger seat. Even with the aa, there is limited room for the passenger up front. I wish this seat would come with the angle adjuster built in, a la some of the other convertibles on the market. harness strap adjustment-- this harness has a ratchet system, so it takes some time to get the straps snug. I try not to loosen them, but my husband tends to loosen them when he takes my son out, so I find it to be a pain to constantly adjust them. No lock-offs--I'm still using latch but when I have to switch to seatbelt I am worried that it will take a while to get a good install without belt lock-offs. Most other seats in the market at this high level come with lock-offs. I would not trust others (grandma, etc) to properly install the seat without lock-offs, so we use a different brand convertible rf in grandma's car since it gets taken out a lot and she has a hard time using the latch system. Seat fabric--we have the red r120, and the fabric is easilly frayed With Velcro from sneakers. The fabric on the newer seats looks more durable. I would buy this seat again because I am confident in my ability to install properly and tighten the harness, and it will keep my lo safely rf for a while longer.

We absolutely love our ...
We absolutely love our Diono's! The R120 was our most recent Diono that we purchases (I have 4 kids currently and they are all in Diono seats!) Diono makes it possible for me to keep all my kids in their car seats for as long as possible not just because of their great weight ranges (even my almost 9 year old is still using his seat as a 5 point harness!) but since they are so slim, I'm actually able to keep all 4 car seats in my car.

Good buy, fits multiple kids.
So, we needed an R120 for 3 across. For the money, it's a good deal, as the seat is both narrow enough for 3 across, rear faces for a long time, has the newborn insert, and has safety out the wazoo. I have had a wide variety of kids ride safely in this seat. It's great for carpool, because no matter what kid is coming, they usually fit. It's easy to install rear or forward facing. Never had a problem with the harness or switching it out for the next slot. Kids have always said it's comfy. The ugly: Imagine trying to haul two of these solo through the airport with 3 kids in tow. My car seat cover is fraying out, which I did not expect, as having owned 13 seats in 10 years, we've never had an issue with a seat cover fraying out. Heavy. Yup, but it braces! The top belting slot is a bit off, and makes it difficult to use as a belting booster.

3 across and comfortable!
We bought this after reading a review on Carseats For the Littles about 3 across in a Honda CR-V. With a third baby due soon, we needed just that in our CR-V. Our FF 4 year old is now in a Diono R120 as is our RF 2 year old. The kids love them and are comfortable. My husband was able to install them really well, as was confirmed when we had a CPST check the install. We love the safety reputation of Dionos and fit for our vehicle. So far the only struggle is that the harness just doesn't snug as securely as our previous carseats, though it passes the "pinch" test at the collar bone and the CPST checked both our kids buckled in and assured us they are tight enough... it isn't easy to get them secure like I like. For our 2 year old, the longer pads for the harness straps are just too big and we wish the shorter ones were included with the purchase as now we have to figure out how to get them for her. Other than these two things, we are pleased with our purchase.

love this car seat
I have bought this car seat a month ago for my 8 month old. I loved it so much that I replace my 4 & 2 year olds car seats with this product as well. They are all happy now that they can all sit next to eachother in are van. As well as they are very sturdy seat which my children are extremely comfortable in. I dont find my four year olds head hanging all the way over anymore as in her other seat. Over all I would recommend this product to anyone. So happy with my purchase!

Great, sturdy, safe seat!
I bought this seat a month ago and I'm very happy with my purchase. I bought it for my 16 month old who needed to transition from her infant carrier to a convertible seat. I use it rear facing in my Jeep Grand Cherokee and it fits great with and without the angle adjuster. I only have two children, but I love the option of being able to fit three car seats across my bench backseat. An adult can also sit comfortably between my two car seats. My only wish is that I had purchased the RXT. My 16 month daughter is super petite and when she falls asleep, her head falls awkwardly to the side. Although she doesn't seem to mind, it does look uncomfortable. We've taken one road trip since purchasing the seat and she slept great, so I guess my concern is not one for her! I also didn't realize that it's slender size means there is no side barriers on the seat. The Diono R120 makes my son's Britax Boulevard look like a Lazy Boy. When I put three car seats across my seat, my daughter (rear facing) can easily kick the unfortunate rider next to her. Once we turn her seat, I'm sure it wouldn't be an issue. Overall, I'm extremely happy with my purchase and recommend it highly.

Perfect for us
We received our first Diono as an option from taking a car seat class. It came highly recommended. We opted for the Diono after seeing how expensive it was. After installing it and owning it for over a year, we see the value. Not only is this a one time buy for your child, the seat can take a beating from normal wear and tear. This car seat is truly an investment. We recommend to all of our friends to look at this car seat because it can last from birth until the child is old enough to sit safety without a car seat. We liked it so much. We purchased another one for our 2nd child when he was born. Now both of them sit comfortably and secure in the back with a 3rd passenger. This is only possible because of the slim profile of the car seats. One con is that this seat is really heavy. I wouldn't recommend passing it from car to car. This is a car seat and not a carrier so keep that in mind if you plan to use it for a newborn.

Nice Seat, but far from perfect!
My wife and I bought 2 Diono car seats, a Radian RXT and a Radian R120. While I agree with most folks about the quality and such of these Dionos, I find it very, very difficult, if not impossible, to install the seat properly. As we all know, the seat must be secured to the vehicles seat suck that there is less then 1" of movement in any direction. The design of the Diono prevents this. In the forward facing position in harness mode, the location of the belt path is so far rearward (due to the very slim nature of the car seat) that the angle of the belt is almost vertical. Without any horizontal component of the belt angle, there is no rearward force when the belt is tight. Hence, the seat can be pulled forward quite easily. And, the same things happens using the Latch system. Now, I except folks to tell me that if the belt is tight enough, the seat is secure. But all that is happening is the car seat is being sucked into the bottom cushion of the vehicles seat. In a collision, the car seat will flip out of the indent in the seat cushion. Now, if the car seat is reclined and some kind of "spacer" is used between it and the vehicles seat back, some amount of belt angle can be achieved and some amount of security realized. But really, that's what I have to so with the most expensive, supposedly best car seat on the market? And the worst part about doing that is the the whole reason to get ripped off paying such a premium for a car seat is to get an ultra compact seat that will fit in smaller spaces and blah blah. Once the bottom is kicked out forward, a whole bunch of room is lost and the kids legs are jammed up to the seat in front, just like the so-called "big and bulky" car seats. I know, I've had seats from brand X and while they may be more bulky, I never had this issue (in the same vehicle, by the way). To say I'm disappointed is an understatement. Frustrated and ticked off would be more accurate. Because, I don't have enough to do in my life then spend umpteen hours fooling around trying to get a car seat safely installed. Ridiculous. Good luck to you all!

Solid, good features, fits three across
This is our fifth Radian seat, two in our other car and now three in our Volvo. They fit three across, including if the middle is rear facing. Som3 say they are too heavy but I disagree. The solid steel frame is heavy but I'll trade up in safety for down in portability any day. You buy a good carseat for the one-in-a-million chance it'll save your child'S life, not to make life easy on yourself. They come with cupholders, nice latch connectors, rear facing angle adaptors and more. So many other car seats feel like molded plastic junk, but not these. I highly recommend them to all my Internet strangers.

Very comfy seat!
We bought this car seat for our one year old who just outgrew her "infant carseat". We ended up going on a four day long roadtrip (8 hrs a day of driving each day) and I can honestly say that without this seat, the trip wouldn't have been so enjoyable. We own a small 4 door car and have the seat rear facing (it is a tight fit). My daughter loves this seat and I love how safe she is while riding in it. I only wish that the bottom corners of the seat were covered so food couldn't get down in the little holes.....

My Baby Girl love her Diono
This so far its the best Seat ever, my baby felt so comfortable when she sat on it that she just went right to sleep on it. it feels very strong and was easy to install, its a little heavy but that's ok if it keeps my baby safe.

Love it!
I have owned other car seats, but nothing compares to the Diono R120! It's slender, easy to install, and my son loves it. My first R120 was involved in a car crash, so I had to replace it. I would not settle for any other seat, so I replaced it with a new R120. My son couldn't be happier! He hated the backup seat I used for a but. He's rear facing at almost 3 years old, and still fits nicely.

As expected.
As slim as you'd expect but weighs a ton. Not bulky but heavier than others, hopefully that translates to better protection. Instructions are plentiful and even official video how to's. seems more versatile than other car seat I've dealt with. Despite the weight I do recommend specially south smaller vehicles.
ProsGood instructions, versatile, slim.
ConsHeavy, not as widely available, don't look forward to carrying through an airport.
