Excerpt: The MBP33 worked great for about a year and then the Parent unit which has a bayonet style charging port failed to properly charge the battery. Why Motorola didn't put a USB style charging port on this unit is beyond me, but I would suggest you do not unplug the charger very frequently or you will wear out the spring in the charging port and you will be unable to charge the battery internally. This is a basic design flaw.
Excerpt: We have been so happy with this monitor. I love that I can hear my son, but I can also see him. The night vision camera is great. I like being able to change the brightness of the monitor or turn the video screen off all together. The wires on the camera and monitor are very long which is great because we have the sitting high above the crib. My husband and I have raved about this monitor so much my sister-in-law put it on her registry.
Excerpt: For the first 9 months this worked great, but the the camera started freezing and then the sound stopped working so we had to buy a new monitor. We did use non stop sooooo maybe we just wore it out??
Excerpt: We purchased this product less than 2 years ago and are already having to replace it. Within one year, the battery on the parent unit stopped taking a charge, so I replaced the battery out of pocket. A few months later the sound went out on the parent unit, making the monitor practically useless unless you want to stare at the video screen all day!
Excerpt: We have had this monitor for a year and a half now and love it. Recently our monitor was saying no signal and we were having trouble getting it to retrieve the signal. After trying to fix it myself I decided to call Motorola for help. After the tech walked me through some steps to try and get it working it still wouldn't detect a signal. Therefore, they are sending me a new one free of charge and all I have to do is ship back the broken one.
Excerpt: I bought this monitor for our son and loved it. The music is great for helping him get to sleep. The night vision is also very good and as far as the reach it has its really good. I was able to go across the street and half way down the block while he was napping. My son is now 20 months old so he doesn't use it anymore, but we are now expecting our second in 15 weeks and I will be using the same monitor since it works perfectly.
Excerpt: I've had this monitor with two camera units for two years now. It still works great. I have other brands for my first two kiddos and those monitor paled in comparison. Recently the cord started to bend and fray where it connects to the main monitor unit. I called Motorola to purchase a replacement cord and they are sending me a whole new unit. Great reliable product and great customer service from Motorola. I HIGHLY recommend!!!
Pros: Accurate, Compact, Discreet, Easy To Set Up, Reliable
Excerpt: I was sent this model after the sound on my discontinued Motorola stopped working after 5 months. I did not have trouble with the signal on my first model, but with this one I lose signal all the time. Even when I have signal I've found that the video image is sometimes "frozen" so even though it looks like the baby is not moving, he's is actually awake.
