Camera is very delicate and broke after a short while

G Colamarco, Amazon
5 February 2014
  • Summary: The monitor is ok but the cameras are too delicate, the small plastic connection that allows the camera to move broke after a short time and after it fell a couple of times on the floor it broke completely so the monitor could not be used any longer. We used a non video monitor with our first daughter and it's still in great shape even if it dropped various times.

Avoid if you are planning to use an additional camera and need sound

  • Summary: This is a completely ridiculous design. I bought it because I knew I would need to add a second camera in the near future. I discovered when I went to buy the additional camera that you lose the sound on both units when you connect the additional camera. That aside, the signal isn't great and I frequently lose signal.

Don't buy - unreliable

sally_260, Amazon

  • Summary: We are on our second defective monitor, which I am now trying to return. Both monitors worked well for the first 2 months and then there started to be a problem with the units connecting (note, they were not dropped or damaged!). Worryingly, the parent unit does not bleep when this happens - the screen just goes blank and you cannot hear anything from the baby's room. If you observe the baby unit when this is happening, the power button keeps going on and off.

Don't buy if you want to use the additional camera/split screen!!!!

  • Summary: The sound quality isn't quite as good as the BT 250, but the fact that this one has a good quality monitor more than made up for it and I have been more than pleased with it for the year that I have owned it....HOWEVER I have just purchased the additional camera and found that you cannot get sound from both cameras!!!!

Beware when using additional cam

Ronan Rafferty, Amazon
12 October 2012
  • Summary: Still in a bit of shock when writing this as I am surprised no-one has picked up on this before. Hopefully I am wrong and someone will correct me. Main features that I was looking for was a good range and multiple baby units and a single parent unit. Video was secondary but with all the good reviews I thought it was worth the extra money. However, when a second cam is connected you lose sound from both baby units.

Poor quality picture

Clks , johnlewis.com

  • Summary: Really disappointed with this monitor and returned it after 1 day of using. I was replacing another video monitor which had broken and saw this new BT one and expected it to be very good as we've previously had a BT audio monitor which was excellent. Unfortunately the quality of the video was very poor compared to the product I was replacing.
