Michelin or Bosch last about a year. The Bosch are super easy to install.

^This

I've worked at a few different Auto Parts stores and have had access to all types. From the $35 a wiper brand names to the cheapest $4 generic ones. I always end up using the $7 Anco wipers and a liberal application of RainX. This combination has gotten me through some of the worst rain storms with excellent visibility. I swap my blades out twice a year good or bad and this combination has served me well.

Rain-X hasn't failed me yet, usually has a rebate or some kind of discount. Don't overthink it, you're supposed to change them once a year anyways.
