I bought this carseat on a whim when it was on special for just over $100 and it was by far the best purchase I have made. It's a very sturdy car seat which is comfortable for bubs and yet isn't really bulky. It's really easy to get a baby into the carseat when it is rear facing in comparison to other more bulky and padded car seats. The lack of padding may seem to be a disadvantage but it's really not! Bubs is really squashed in our luxi caprice car seat whereas he seems a lot happier in the Neon.
For a tiny newborn, I was concerned about his head tipping forward, but now that he can hold his head just fine it's not a concern at all. You may also like to consider putting an infant head rest thing on this car seat (a cheap addition) so the baby's head doesn't tip from side to side.
This car seat has been perfect since my bub could hold his head on his own. Before that, I do really prefer a capsule. Otherwise, love love love this carseat and I wouldn't hesitate to buy another if I needed to.
I purchased the Infasecure Neon for my daughter due to the fact that she was reaching the rear-facing limits of her previous seat. The Neon, alongside the other versions of the seat has the hightest rear-facing markers on the market currently. Due to the huge safety benefits of rear-facing as well as my daughter's special needs, this has been a great value for money car seat. It is a very well made seat that boasts features normally found on dearer brand seats including crotch clip padding, shoulder pads, infant insert and head rest. The more expensive model, the Kompressor, has even more luxurious padding if so required for a younger child (as well as a slightly narrower base). The Neon uses much less space rear-facing than a lot of other seats on the market while maintaining a large rear-facing limit. My son who is almost 5 actually fits within the limit of the seat for rear-facing!
When in forward-facing mode, the seat has an amazing recline ability which I trust will be of great use for my daughter when the time comes.
Couldn't reccomend Infa seats more highly. :)
