May I ask why u picked those ones? We have Britax and I love them. We use to also have a evenflo that I could get in the car right and always had to have my husband do it. With the britax I can do it my self. The reason we replaced our evenflo was becuase we were in a tiny car crash. We weren't hit hard but still had to replace it. 2nd car crash was a lot harder and both kids were in a britax and both of them were fine. My son thought it was fun and wanted to do it again. We were rear ended. First one was a hit and run. Guy back into me and took off.

The only graco carseat I have had was the infant one. U should go to the store and see how each one is. Plus go with the one that ur child can stay in the longest for ur child's safety. Good luck. Hope that kinda helps.

We have the MyRide 65 for our son, and love it. We bought it for him when he was 6 months old and he is still in it a 2 1/2 years old. It is easy to move and not to bulky. He has always been a big boy so he is getting a little big for it now but we have to wait untill he is 4 before we get a booster, but he is still comfy in this one.

It depends how old you child is. Most parents have told me that the Graco brand is great for infants and the EvenFlo is the best for toddlers.

Oh ok. Then if ur not moving it a lot from car to car I would go with the evenflo. I really liked mine but I just couldn't get it tight from moving it from car to car when someone else would take my son.

I've had my eye on the smart seat for a while now (first choice) but it is 300. The only negative I've read on it is that it's heavy/bulky but we have big car and only one so it won't be moved from car to car. The evenflo, my sister has it and loves but I just wanted more advice from others first. The price is 200 for this one. And last the myride, well, first thing I thought when I saw it was it looks really comfy. It's the cheapest of the three at 150 and goes with the infant carseat/stroller we already have. I did read several reviews of people feeling like they couldn't get the straps tight enough buy again, thought I'd ask for more advice from others :)
