We have 2 evenflo triumph 65s. At least where I am in Canada, the police officer who helped us install our seats said that they are all equally safe, when you pay more you're paying for convenience features (like not having to rethread to move the harness up and down, cupholders, straps that don't twist).
We love our triumphs and got them on clearance for $60-80 which is $100 off here. We had an safety 1st alpha omega we had to throw due to a car accident (baby wasn't in it) and I thought it was fine at the time, but now don't like it as much as the evenflo- the harness had to be rethreaded to move it up and down and the straps were constantly twisting.
loganlac:We have an Evenflo symphony 65 and love it! Easy to install and DD is so comfy in it.
This. It is just as safe as Britax and much more affordable for those of us who can't afford Britax. My DS loves it.
