Wind Deflectors - Opinions

I'm looking to get some wind deflectors for my SX+.
Initially i was looking for a standard set that would line up nicely between the doors (most i find taper near the front and back of the deflector), then started seeing sets that were inside the window channel. Wondering if anyone had opinions on the in-channel kind, and perhaps a link to where i may be able to find them.

I find when you try searching for these kinds of accessories, you see generic images that don't always give you the best idea of what they're going to look like installed.

thanks in advance!

I think I understand what you're after, could you post a link or one of the generic pics?

its called a side window visor, not a wind deflector (that sounds more like something you would mount on your hood, which is hood deflector)

Yep, vent visors, whatever you want to call em. I've seen the ones that have the chrome trim on them, but these are what I'm after:

Actually, this is what I was looking for. The vent visors more or less live up between the doors.

But I'm having a bugger of a time finding them.

This one seems similar, near-seamless connection of front and rear sections:

SAFE Smoke Tinted Side Window Visors for 2016 KIA Sorento L LX EX SX Limited | eBay

This one might work as I see it fits other vehicles (Check the specs):
