In 2008 Consumer Reports actually recommended replacing every 6 months. Also, here's what Wipers123 stated via email:

"Wiper Blades Purchased: December 2010
In Service/Wiper Age: 6 Months
Recommended Action: Please inspect and replace if necessary

Many of our customers follow the recommendation of the leading US consumer reporting magazine and replace their wipers twice a year to maintain "Very Good" or "Excellent" performance, thus we begin our inspection/replacement reminders at 6 months after your purchase.

Note: The effective life of wiper blades varies drastically due to a number of factors including extreme hot & cold temperatures, prolonged exposure to direct sunlight, indoor vs. outdoor storage of vehicle, amount & type of precipitation, amount of wiper use, and age/condition of windshield glass (older, worn glass wears out wiper blades faster). Personal preference of acceptable performance also varies drastically.

I switched from icons to trico neoforms a while back and imo they work better, are super quiet and are inexpensive for top of the line (about $17 a pair after rebate right now and $33 a pair regularly). Ok...what else is out there?
