Summary: Do not buy this. I am on my second one as the first ones on/off button broke on the parent unit. Unfortunately, you cannot just replace this because the child unit is linked directly to the parent unit in the pack. We decided to buy a second one (obviously disappointed that we had to but a whole new pack) only to find the same thing has happened to the parent on/off button. The first unit last around a year, the second only a few months.
Excerpt: We bought this as an exact replacement for our little boy. he loved playing with the adult part of the monitor and had been dropped quite a few times and finally broke. but that is down to our little one not the monitor. Has great features for music, noises and projector is great, seems clearer on ceiling this time round. would recommend to everyone looking for a great quality monitor for their little one.
Summary: This is the 2nd time we have purchased this product and 2nd time we have had serious problem. With the latest purchase, everything started out great at first, easy to use and nice features. But the battery quickly deteriorated and only got worse. After several months use, the monitor started to take on a mind of its own, deciding not to charge or breaking the monitor link.
... for about 2 weeks now and I am so happy I bought it

Summary: I have been using this product for about 2 weeks now and I am so happy I bought it! The star lights are really relaxing and so the music is! Hope the batteries don't give us too much problems in time, as other people mentioned in their reviews. I guess if so we would just have to replace the batteries? Anyway, so far, so good! We love it!
Excerpt: First baby and first baby monitor so was very nervous and unsure about which brand and model to buy but this one is brilliant. Sound is crystal clear it is like my little one is still sleeping in my room can here all sounds even her breathing, there is option to turn sound down for older babies. The light show is a great feature and helps send her to sleep.
Summary: Love the tunes and the projector. Battery of parent bit doesn't last long after a while. Have used it for about 6 months and not every day. Bought on sale so happy with the price. I use it in a hot country so the colour changing temperature light isn't any use - it is permanently red. Overall good but disappointed with the battery life.
The ceiling star effect is wonderful. Nice and bright and stars can be seen ...

Summary: I think we have brought about 6 of these over the baby years (had to buy more as broke handset quite a few times when feel out of pocket - so be careful not to drop the handset too often!)....The ceiling star effect is wonderful. Nice and bright and stars can be seen very clearly (don't waste your money on battery operated ones that are available). Wondeful range of music...nature sounds. Very clear reception...
Summary: this is a great monitor initially...until it stops working, the parent unit then fails to charge and switches itself off intermittently, and then renders the whole thing useless! Very disappointed to read others have had the same problem so I know it's not just a one off. I have tried different batteries but the same problem still occurs. I would strongly advise against buying this product as a result.
