Britax has multiple models to choose from, and from a safety standpoint, they're all great. This particular model is one of the lower end models. As such, it doesn't come with shoulder strap pads (which can be purchased inexpensively at just about any general store or online). It's also less plush than, say, the Britax Marathon.
One thing to note is that Britax car seats can be somewhat large/bulky. If you have a small car you may want to think about how it will fit. That being said, my husband's car is a small sedan and we do just fine with our Britax in there. His driver's seat can't go all the way back, though. If you're tall, this could be a problem for you.
I don't know anyone that has been unhappy with their Britax purchase but I know some people have wished they'd just paid the extra money and gotten the Marathon, since it goes to 70 lbs (which could easily last your child from birth to age 6, when the car seat expires) and are more cushioned, which can come in handy for people who do longer car trips.
Overall you can't go wrong with a Britax. If you can spend more money, I'd recommend the Britax Marathon 70 Convertible Car Seat Current Version, Onyx.
The roundabout straps have to be actually threaded through & the seat material is like a velvety texture , which looks & feels like my baby may get hot quickly (she seems to be hot natured). I guess I can alway change the seat cover.
I will say this, my child dosent really like to be confined or in a car seat but she does really well in britax , they are very padded , seem to sit her at a more upright position & I think she likes bring able to see out her window . Car rides have been alot more enjoyable for everyone since we use these. So if you have a fussy baby I would try this (not to mention it is very safe) .
We also have a graco nautilus & a safety first alpha omega & I paid as much for them as I did the roundabout & hands down I love the britax for comfort, safety & simplicity .
however, the print is adorable, so we love it. and it's a britax, which i've never had a brand that even comes close to this one, so that's even better.
if you can afford it, buy this brand. if you have to skimp on something that they won't use as much, or as long, just to afford this brand...then do it.
you will not regret spending the money. this one is so much easier to use than any other brand we've tried. so much more user-friendly. so easy to adjust as your baby gets taller.
i bought my first car set 25 years ago, and they have come a long way. this one is by far the best.
