Bought wipers in november '21 after reading reviews. Was working well, no streaks/noise. However now (march/april '22) wipers are skipping and very noisy. Contacted support given their promise of customer satisfaction but only suggestion was to clean the windshield which I had done already. Was expecting to get at least 12 months out of it so fairly disappointed.
I was given replacement wiper refills after my review was posted. The installation was easy and straightforward, however the performance was still not what it was when I got i...t new in november; the bottom portion of the blade was still skipping albeit better. This makes me believe it could be that the wiper arm has lost tension rather than the rubber losing performance. At least now it is useable and the noise is not as bad, hopefull will last the full 12 months. Videos of Before https://youtube.com/shorts/_V0-kwUWjpQ After https://youtube.com/shorts/OO_RsbrJ4oU
After a few months they have started squealing
Started out well, but after 5 months on the vehicle they have started to squeal (Audi Q7). I have emailed Uniwipers and sent a video of the noise to them. I have cleaned them, made sure the windscreen is clean, and the noise keeps coming back. I have been in touch with Uniwiper and will see what happens. I have not had an issue with the rear wiper which I purchased at the same time.
I researched these before buying, but would not be going out of my way to purchase them for my 4wd when they are due. For the cost of these I would expect a long...er life with them. My wifes car is always washed and kept clean in the garage and does minimal travel. Mine on the other hand is driven every day, sits in the elements and I do not have this problem with my wipers and I dont wash my car half as much as my wifes. The were easy to fit, and delivered quickly, but I just expected a bit more from them for the price. If they continue to squeal on the screen, I will have to replace them as the noise is very annoying to listen to while driving. Uniwiper are sending some new rubbers and windscreen polish which is great, we will see how this works. I am happy with the great response from Uniwipers so I hope this solves my problem and I can update accordingly.
Good wipers Good service and quick delivery
After a disappointing begining the service and attention are excellent. Very pleased with the replacement and would buy again .it would appear to be new management

Ok, but could be much better!
Overall the wipers work well as you'd expect new wipers to. The only issue is because the wipers are kept in the packet for however long in the warehouse, they loose the curvature and as such they don't fully curve to the windscreen. Therefore they don't clean the edges properly. I tried folding them with my hands before installing but this didn't help.
The other issue is around installing onto the wiper arms of the front ones. The fit was not very good and I had to really "yank" them in and at one point thought I was going to break something.
I'll come back and update after 4-6 months of use. They are ok for now, but I'll try something else first before I decide to come back for more.
