Fine for the price

Summary: Okay, the battery life is abysmal. If your desperate for a portable monitor then this isn't for you BUT if you can get past having to have the monitor plugged in its brilliant for the price. Easy to use, auto night vision is brilliant, of course at this price not HD but you can see plenty. If you want an affordable does the job video monitor this is good. If you want high spec, you'll need to spend a little more money.
Summary: Pros: very useful, gives us peace of mind and contributes to a better sleep. I wouldn't buy a baby monitor without the image feature; great picture quality, even when it's dark; good feature allows it to switch image off when the baby is completely quiet; light, easy to carry around Cons: battery lasts less than 2 hours; for us, it stops working if more than 40m away from unit; sound 'downplays' noises (sometimes I hear my baby crying from her bedroom rather than from...
Summary: Good value for money. It does what it says. Battery life very low so the producers could think of improving that - it also makes a beep-ing noise which is rather unpleasant but all in all good product.
Summary: This is a very well priced and handy device. Pros; The infrared night vision mode is fantastically clear, the day time colour too is crystal clear and the auto switch works very well. The low light view is clear enough that we can often see our sons chest rising and falling as he breaths, which is very reassuring. The range is excellent as we can get reception anywhere in our house and in the extension which has a brick wall partly in the way of the signal.
Summary: I purchased the twin cam monitor after a lot of research on camera monitors, as I needed a twin cam and one that is reliable and has no interference from other electronic equipment or wi-fi. This one had the best reviews and the best features for the price. We previously had the MBP35 and found this to be a fantastic camera, until our youngest son dropped the parent unit and the screen no longer functions.
Summary: I debated for some time whether to buy this one as I read so many mixed reviews but am overall quite happy with this. We had a video monitor from when my toddler was a newborn, so when our old Summer one broke, there was no way I was going to switch to a standard one without a video, even though she's no longer a baby..opening the door to her room would disturb her, this way we could keep an eye on her without going into her room.
If you are buying this monitor please be aware you will need 3 pin adaptor

Summary: This product is good. But if you are buying this monitor from this buyer please be aware that it is a European model and therefore you will require 2 x 3 pin adaptors. So if you think its a bargain please add on £11 for 2 adaptors. Therefore its not the cheapest on Amazon and my advice would be purchase it from another supplier.
Summary: We purchased this product within November 2011 and we are generally satisfied with it. The range & the clearness are perfect, also during the night. The only default we found is that the batteries do not last long, so we have to have it plugged more than expected.
