I purchased this seat for my baby before he was born. It had a high crash test rating and had the highest rating for rear facing (12kg). That to me was important.
My son and I were unfortunate enough to be involved in a high speed car accident when he was just over 6 mo old. Legally allowed to be turned to face forward, but I feel strongly about rear facing so obviously I hadn't turned him. Even though my car was a complete write off and the car was crumpled right up to the back seat, my baby was completely safe. He only had a minor graze on his neck from the harness. The seat was like a cocoon and did my husband and I proud.
The big bonus for us was the safe n sound crash exchange program. It was no muss no fuss. The staff there were amazingly helpful and we received a new seat rather quickly. We then sent our seat back to them to dispose of in the correct manner.
Once our baby is over 12kg the seat will convert to a forward facing seat which will protect him until he is 18kg, so we also feel it is great value for money.
We have just recently taken out the infant insert and although I thought it may be a bit less comfy, he hasn't complained and is still happily rear facing at 10.5kg.
Be careful when installing the seat, it can be a bit tricky. It shouldn't move at all. The first person we PAID to install it for us was quite frankly crap and we had it reinstalled by a man at our local hospital for free and he was brilliant. We went back to him after our accident aswell.
