Summary: This is a great monitor. I have noticed some reviewers saying that they have a faulty monitor as the screen stays on constantly rather than being sound activated. It's not very clear in the instructions but you have to set the screen to be sound activated, then switch the screen off using the view button. That will allow it to switch the screen on if there is sound detected but then shut off again after 30 seconds of quiet.
Summary: Was a little sceptical ordering a video monitor as the reviews are very hit and miss on all the various models. However I neednt had worried.. This is an excellent product. The picture and sound quality is fantastic, the signal carries round our large house without so much as a crackle on the audio or any picture distortion.
Summary: This was bought to replace a previous one when the camera died after 1 year. The camera with this one is better than the previous one so can only imagine that they made improvements on the model (this is a more recent version). I'm still very happy with this monitor in spite of the original camera failing after only one year.

Summary: The only real negative, and i'm being very picky, is that because it has such a good range the handset could do with being more user friendly for carrying round such as having a belt clip or something. Otherwise the image, setting and useability so far seems great. Bit odd that the camera unit uses standard batteries whereas the handset uses a specific rechargeable battery, the same in both would have made more sense but again this is not relevant to the units operations
Summary: We love this Baby Monitor - We originally bought it when our baby was first born and we found it really simple to set up and use. We didn't need all the features, we didn't use it for lullabies and we didn't use it to talk to our little angel from downstairs. What we used RELIGIOUSLY, and I mean every night, is the video and temperature functions.
Avoid unless you've nerves of steel and a heart of iron.

Summary: Had this monitor set for nearly a year now. From the get go we thought it wasn't sensitive enough to sounds. While it's got some common sense programming in that it doesn't immediately trigger on the first noise or two, we've often time seen our baby son thrashing in the bed and could hear him in the room next door well before the monitor kicked in. And this was on the highest sensitivity settings.
Summary: Absolutely brilliant monitor. The picture is very clear even at night. The sound is very clear, I can hear my baby breathing if I turn the sensitivity level up to 5. Very reassuring for naps and the hour or two after he goes to bed as he is 4 months old and still sleeps in our room. Think this piece of kit will make the transition to baby's own room at 6 months a lot easier for me! Overall could my be happier with it.
Pros: realy clear picture and sound, only the perent unit has rechargeable battery
Summary: I really like this except last summer when my husband stood on the parent unit charger he broke it, sadly there was no way to get a replacement - we therefore had to buy the whole set again! (ouch!) Anyway this week the parent unit charger broke again, this is poor as we just leave the plug in 1 place but I am delighted to say you can now buy replacements (from this number 0844 55 77789 - don't bother with BT customer care its poor) so I'm a fan again.
Summary: I bought this monitor two years ago and loved it. After two years of using it every night the monitor stopped working and wouldn't charge, and the battery packed up, so I ended up having to buy another one. I have bought the same one again as now I have two boys it's great as I can link both cameras to the one monitor.
Summary: The picture is clear, the sound is good and the signal strength is strong. It is worth it's money in my opinion and would recommend. The only down side is the battery life on the moniter doesn't last very long but that's not realy a big deal
