So here's the thing: you have to read and follow the instructions to get these things to work. Meaning clean the windshield with the enclosed alcohol wipe, then run the wipers dry for five minutes. If you don't do this, they won't work, and it's not their fault.
Do that and these things outperform other blades by a significant margin, AND they last twice as long as ordinary wipers, meaning the price/value is about the same as cheapies that last half as long and cost half as much.
Note the address: I live just outside Portland, OR, which means I get LOTS of rain. Till I bought these, wipers were an annual purchase -- just put new ones on when the kids go back to school. I've had my PIAAs for two years and don't need new ones on the WRX or the Miata -- I'm buying a set for my daughter's college commuter. Wish they made them for old Italian cars too!
