overall i'm happy
This is my 3rd car seat in this style. I have two 2 1/2 year olds and an 8 month old. This car seat works great rear and forward facing. My only complaint is the seat cover is difficlut to get off and wash.

Good value!
This carseat is good quality and looks as good as it did on the website. The sale price made it a great purchase.
ProsIt is good quality. The seat can recline quickly and easily. The straps can be re-positioned quickly and easily. The arms fold up out of the way. Nice, roomy seat.

Love this!
I purchased two of these and I absolutely .LOVE them. I wish they came with the strap padding like shown in the picture - otherwise perfect, great product. I could not believe I found them at this price, couldn't pass it up!!!!! My daughter loves being in a bigger seat in the car (she absolutely hated her carrier), she can see out the window when were driving =)
ProsI love the pattern, it's very girlie! The buckles are easy to do, it reclines, very comfy, good quality product, I won't have to buy another carseat!
ConsI had to roll up padding to put under to get proper elevation for rear-facing and the carseats did not come with the product as shown in picture...

Great seat for all sized kids
I bought 2 of these seats, one for my infant and one for my 5 year old. They both fit nicely and love them! My 5 year old is always telling me how comfortable the seat is. It did take me about 30-45 mins to get them installed as tight as I like them to be so I hate if I have to switch cars. The fabric is a great color for not showing kid messes and it wipes clean nicely :-)

LOVE this carseat!
I absolutely love this careseat. My daughter was 9 months old and was too tall to fit into a portable car carrier any more. We purcahsed this seat at a WONDERFUL price and we absolutely love it. We had to use a towel to level the carseat because the edges of our backseat curve upwards, but that's the backseats issue, NOT the carseat. My daughter loves it, it's very pretty and seems very comfortable. I may purchase this seat again for friends if it is available!!! I hope so at such a great price it would be hard to beat!

this car seat was so easy to install. my two year old granddaughter loves it - so much that i have to buy another one for my 3 year old granddaughter. it is so much more comfortable and easier to adjust the straps. the arm rests are a bonus - and of course - they both love the pink and gray colors. i even put my 1 1/2 year old grandson in and he was quite comfortable. the support and the safety features were the number one reason i purchased the car seat. you won't be disappointed.

Safety 1st Alpha Omega Car Seat
This is my second Alpha Omega car seat. It is easily adjusted as my grandchildren grow. I don't have to take it out of t he car to make adjustments.
ProsIt is easy to adjust for the height of the child. It is easy to clean and comfortable for the child.
ConsIt is hard to tighten the seat in the car when installing. I have to get help.

Nice, comfortable carseat
We've had this carseat a couple months now. My daughter seems to really like riding in it, she's still rearfacing at this point. However, my son has the older version of the Alpha Omega Elite and has enjoyed all the positions. Easy to install/uninstall.

Beautiful Convertible Carseat!
I bought this carseat for my little grand daughter and she loves it and so do i !!! The colors are a beautiful combination! Very soft and plush!!! She loves the arm rest and they go up and out of the way when shes getting out of the carseat! The only thing i really dont care for is the cup holder! Its not upright and not deep enough! Really rather useless! Thats the least of our worries there are other alternatives for that! All in all it's very safely made and it got 5 stars from my grand daughter! :o) The price is magnificent!!!! Get one before they are gone!!
Proseverything! :o)
ConsThe only thing is the cup holder, But no biggie ..... There are plenty of great universal cup holders!

Issues with install and with shoulder strap
Because the base is not removable on this unit (as other reviewers have suggested it is) and it is bulky,and it does not easily fit in a lot of vehicles. I bought this car seat to use as a second car seat and to use while visiting family in another state. We were initially installing it in a 2002 Aztec. (relatives vehicle). Installed rear facing and it was loose. May have worked with a towel or pool noodle, but we decided to try to install forward facing as my daughter can sit either way based on her weight. It fit a little better, but was not a tight install and felt I could move the base more than an inch. When we came home, we installed it in our second vehicle which is a 2000 Volvo C70 convertible (I know, small right?!) Well, installing it face forward was not an option. The angle of the seat with that base just caused it to slide around and not hold. We decided to try and see if it would fit rear facing and to our amazement, it did and the install is nice and tight! The passenger seat is pushed forward quite a bit, but I am 5' 3" and I can sit in the front, but is a bit more forward that I prefer, but not to the point where it is unsafe (I'm not eating the dash board). The other issue I have with this seat is it is a continuous strap versus two straps. I read about this in reviews also. The problem we seem to have is when our daughter is sitting in the seat, it is hard to pull the strap because her weight pushes down on them. Also, the shoulder pad on each strap tends to fall through the slots and you will not be able to pull the straps at all until you realize they are back there and have to reach in back of the seat and pull them back through. Our other car seat is a Radian XTL, so it was like going from a Cadillac to a Geo Metro. Car seat isn't super plush, but isn't too bad. Have not used arm rests and cup holder is bulky, but my daughter likes it. I think this car seat will make a nice booster seat when our daughter is older. We have many years for that, so at this point, we are satisfied as it is rear facing and will likely have another vehicle before we need to go forward facing with this seat.(Just hope it will install nicely when we get to that point). Glad it isn't our primary seat. For the price, I wouldn't overlook it, but test it in your vehicle first if you can. (I had mine shipped directly to my relatives, so unable to test first)

This car seat is not really comfortable at all.I know just by looking at it it looks comfy and cozy but it is not. I wish I had purchased this product in store.

I bought this seat for my daughter a little after her 1st birthday. We bought 2 at that time (one for each vehicle). She is now 2.5 years old and we still love it. I have since purchased one for my family back home so when we travel to visit I don't have to take one with and I find it to be so amazing for her. She always seems very comfortable, it is so easy to adjust to make the straps fit her as she has grown. I am currently shopping to purchase another one for my now 7month old son. I noticed some people mentioning that it is difficult to install, I have not had that experience. I always install it using the latch system and I have never had any problems, I can move it from one place to another in 3 min or less. I also noticed that it is very easy to take apart to clean. We are now going through potty training and as expected she has had some accidents in her seat and I just take it out take it apart put it in the washer and put it back on its very simple.

Good product
This is a good solid car seat and you can't beat the price on here. My daughter is a little on the small side but it works for her perfectly. I think the infant head insert could be a little better, but overall it is great. The arm rests are a plus :-) I actually took this car seat with us on a recent plane trip and it did well being checked and worked well in all of the cars we rode in while visiting out of town. This is a good solid product.
ConsThe infant head rest thingy is not the best.

Love it!
We have had this car seat for a few months and we really like it. Our daughter fits well in it and it is very comfortable. My only complaint would be that it is a little bulky, especially for a sedan, and it did take some effort get get installed. We tried and did not feel confident with our job, so we had a car seat technician install it for us. We did have to use towels under it to get it level, but it works well.

Great car seat!
I purchased 2 alpha omega elites for our 16 mo old twins.We have 6 kids so carseats are not a stranger to me. I ordered these from Allbee baby and they arrived in 1 day, in perfect condition. This seat is very plush and the seat itself is very cushy. I read through the manual, adjusted it to my daughter inside (like the manual says), and then installed it in our Ford Escape using the latch system. I had no issues with installation or set up.In fact, I found it to be quite straight forward and easy. Any convertible seat will take a little more effort to install rear facing than an infant carrier. The trick to tightening it down good is to pull the belt back through the belt pathway so you can really pull the belt tight and snug.Make sure if you are rearfacing it that you are using the pathway for rearfacing under the seat bottom. My seats have no movement at the belt pathway and they are solid in the escape. I actually think they are more solid than the snugrides in the escape. You can also remove the base if needing more space for rearfacing, to get the right angle. As far as the booster ratings, well the average 4 yr old is 37-40 lbs and this seat can be used with the harness until 50 lbs and to me I have issues that they did measurements on a crash dummy but no actual tests so I don't put much stock in those booster ratings. When the twins outgrow the harness weight, then I will see how it fits as a booster but realistically, new technology is always emerging and by the time we are ready for a booster I will probably be ready to buy something new at that point.. I would definately recommend this seat!

Very Safe
My 2 1/2 year old was in this seat when we were involved in an accident and she is fine. Only minor bruising from the strap but we are very happy with how the seat kept her safe. The only problem I had with this seat was that it was very difficult to get the cover back on after cleaning it.
