i've been lurking around baby shops for the past week or so, trying to find somewhere that stocks and will match toysrus' current 25 percent off the infa-secure kompressor.
anyway, long story short, EVERY time i walk in and wait for the sales assistant to finish her spiel to the couple before me, always new parents, they're selling the meredian. today i even waited and asked if they had any kompressors in stock and she spent a good minute looking through the carseats on display to find out. do these people even know about ANY seats besides the meridian?
so tell me, is the meridian really that good? she was telling them that it's the best seat on the market because it's got AHR. i checked CREP and while the meridian is top on the list for FF/RF post 6 months, surely those results are slightly out of date since the seats they are now selling are not the 2004 models? and plenty of new seats have since come out on the market.
makes me angry that they seem to push the one seat and only the one seat.
incidentally if anyone knows of somewhere i can get the kompressor for under 180 or if BigW ever discounts the Trident or Neon (both same seat, just different covers and Neon has a slightly larger base), i'd love to know
