Very Nice
The only problem we have is the crotch buckle sits very low when compared to our other seats. We really have to dig down to get our child buckled in.

Comfortable, but a bit hard to tighten
Our daughter loves this car seat, and clambers up into it without prompting. She loves the little cubbies where she can store her little treasures, and in our VW Passat wagon, she's the only one with a cupholder in the back seat, which she likes. Tightening the straps takes a bit more force than I'd like; this is the only aspect that's somewhat unpleasant on a day-to-day basis, and the reason I can't give the seat five stars. The crotch latch and the chest clip are at just the right compromise between easy for the parent to fasten and unfasten, but too tight for the child to undo. The strap loosening method (lift instead of push) takes a bit of thinking about still, but I'm sure we'll get used to it. This is our first child restraint with no-rethread shoulder strap adjustment, and it's not as easy as it seems it ought to be: you still only have a finite number of positions where it'll click in place, and they seem awfully far apart -- the one setting seems a bit low, the next one seems way too high, and it's all very hard to judge because of the way the straps are routed around and through the seat padding. So if you're shopping for a child restraint that'll be used by just one child, don't put the no-rethread thing very high on the list of desired features, because it's really not worth it. In the aforementioned VW, we have the seat in the middle of the back, and there's just enough room for two large adults to get in on either side. The absolute width of this child restraint is higher than another restraint we tried, but it's narrower at seat level, where it matters.
ProsComfortable, fairly easy to install with LATCH (haven't tried it with seat belts yet), easy adjustments and fastenings
ConsHard to tighten the harness, heavy/bulky

Don't let the comments about the release button/clip deter you from the product. I did go check out these poorly made clips in person, and as everyone said, they are pitiful. I wanted this seat really bad though so I called Graco and they said the product underwent a clip re-manufacturing process and that if I call them they will replace it for free. The chest clip is also very easy to open. If my child can unclip it, they will send a new one of those too. The difference between the Argos Elite and the Argos 70 is the strap covers and adjustable headwings. Graco customer service was great to deal with!

Great Customer Service
I have not opened my car sears. However, I purchased two car seats from Albee Baby and within two days I had received them via UPS. They have such great service and I would recommend their company to everyone.

Very Happy!
I can't express enough how satisfied I am with my purchase. I researched car seats for MONTHS and i am a car seat snob. I have been and always will be a fan of Britax, and 1 son is in a Britax right now. Anyways, we were looking for a second car seat for him and after all my researching I decided to go with this seat because of the adjustable head wings. I have not found another car seat on the market that offers this option. The seat itself is cozy and I'll give the padding an 8 out 10. I have seen some seats that are a little more cushy on the bum! Overall I am very glad I went with this seat. The price is lovely too ;-)

Great car seat!
My daughter loves this car seat. She is 6 1/2 years old and I prefer to keep her in a 5-pt harness. She is on the tall size (90 %ile height) and it still has more room for her to grow a bit. She said it's very comfortable, no complaints on a 6 hour car ride. Very easy to install, material is super soft. The only downside is it is very hard to click the bottom buckle. However, you definitely know if it is, or is not, completely snapped.
