Excerpt: We bought this monitor when our son went in to his own room at 8 months & we will be looking for a replacement.<br />It only picks up louder noises like crying, you can't put your ear to it & hear breathing, it transmits no noise unless there over a certain decibel. Sometimes i wake to hear my son coughing, but im hearing it through the wall & the monitor isnt showing anything!!
Pros: Easily Transportable
Cons: Doesn't Pick Up All Noise, Poor Battery Life, Poor Transmission
Excerpt: A pretty basic monitor, but that's what we were looking for as we don't really require it at home as such (we live in quite a small flat and unless we close the living room door and bedroom door we have no problem picking up even the smallest whimpers from our son). Main reason for buying a monitor was for visiting our parents as both my parents and my husband's live in large houses with bedrooms upstairs and living room downstairs.
Pros: Clear Signal, Good Range, Reliable, Simple, User Friendly
Excerpt: I bought this to replace a more expensive listener that no longer worked, and it does what it says it does and is clear. However I miss the features of a more expensive model, such as temp and music, but this is my fault and not that of the product which does all it says it does.
Excerpt: We didn't realize when we purchased this monitor that the microphone would only transmit sound when there is a noise loud enough to activate it. We've used it with our toddler who is only recently out of the crib, and I have to say this monitor is a big disappointment & annoyance. After putting him to bed and turning the monitor on, we left the room and turned the parent unit on. Nothing. No sound at all.
Excerpt: Bought for occasional use when away as our house is too small to need a monitor normally. This one is really easy to use - simple without any fancy extras. You can turn the sound down and just have the lights showing which is what we were looking for and the reception seems fine so far.
Excerpt: I bought this monitor as a back up for one I already have. We've just had our second child and we've found this really useful for monitoring our toddler. My only criticism is that the volume, when at its lowest, is still quite loud. But, overall, this is a great product at a reasonable price.
Pros: Clear Signal, Good Range, Great Features, Reliable, Simple, User Friendly
Excerpt: With our first baby I was bamboozled by the array of different monitors avaliable, and didn't get one in the end as baby slept around us and the accoustics of the house were good. For baby 2 I feel the need for a simple, clear monitor as our needs have changed. So far with a little playing this looks to be a good product with no distracting white noise. If all you want is to listen for baby making a noise, this seems to be an excellent value choice.
