** Update 5/22/16
Well, I just ordered replacement blades finally. They started streaking on me. So the life on my Honda Odyssey is about 5.5 months... Honestly not too bad for the price. I actually reordered these again since they worked so well. About 2 sets of wiper blades a year is a pretty decent deal to me...
** Update 4/14/16
Ok here we are 5 months on since I purchased these for the van... And I am honestly surprised to report that they are still working without issues.. they survived snow, ice, and rain. All Without issues. I have noticed that the "RainX" feature has faded pretty much completely but they still function as standard wiper blades without an issue The RainX lasts about 3 months-ish...But at the 5 month mark I am no longer worried about price for value. I usually feel the need to replace wipers every 3 months as they begin to streak or worse, but at 5 months they perform almost as good as new. I would Absolutely recommend these if you have a Honda Odyssey (I have no clue how it works on other cars). I have revised my rating to 5 stars, and I am in shock about that...**
I'm really not sure how effective they are at doing the water repellency thing but they do add a bit of the water shedding to the glass since the rain does bead up and run off a bit more than it used to. I do question how long that will last though since traditional rain x only lasts a few weeks...
The main reason I tried these was to attempt to cure the bane of my wiper purchasing; The need to find a wiper than not only does well in rain sleet and snow but also makes contact with the entire windshield. I have purchased probably 8 sets of blades for my Honda Odyssey and every single "beam style" blade I have purchased has missed the edges of the window (Where it curves around). Happily these seem to actually touch the entire window. They have mostly eliminated streaking and the "missing" portions when running the wipers. I prefer the beam type as they seem to streak less and do way better in ice and snow than the traditional framework style blades.
I think these are solid wipers and I would recommend them but can't in good conscience give it 5 stars since I don't know how long the water repellency will last.
I will update this review and possibly adjust the rating once I've used them for more than a week.
Just my thoughts,
Fitting the Rain-X blades was very simple. To activate water repellency, you run the blades for three minutes on a clean, dry windshield. They are quiet, and leave a streak-free result. I don't think their repellency is as good as when you apply Rain-X liquid, but it's OK.
UPDATE 10/17/17: It was raining yesterday and I hopped in my truck to run to the store. As I left my neighborhood and got onto the main road I began to pick up speed. All of a sudden my drivers side windshield wiper launched off of my truck and landed in traffic. After retrieving it, I determined that it was a manufacturing defect causing the wiper to separate from the adapter. I had read reviews before saying the adapter disconnected from the wiper arm, but this wasn't that. This was cheap construction resulting in product failure. I would not recommend these wipers to anyone. I have reduced my rating to 1 star.
Ford Fusion: The wiper blade just flew off my car during heavy rain on the highway. The blade had disconnected from the supplied adapter.
Ford F150: There is a lever/button that you have to press in to make a secure connection to the wiper arm. That lever/button pops up regularly, causing the blade to be loosely connected and likely to fall off.
