Summary: I received this monitor as a gift, and the first 4 months or so it was great. Then the battery started to go or something, but now it's about a year old, it holds a charge for a half hour, is staticky after 10 minutes of being off its charger, and make a horrible ticking sound for 20 minutes when placed back on the charger.... Very disappointed...
Summary: We have had this product for just over a month. Very simple to setup, and operate. Music feature is nice as well as the temperature monitor in the room. Range seems excellent and there has been zero interference that we can detect.
Pros: range is excellent, ease of use, simple design, in room temperature monitor
Summary: This is our second unit as the first had a battery issue. We have found even on the highest volume we can barely hear our son when he cries. The blue lights seem to be more sensitive than the volume control. We have had other products and volume was at least 2x as loud. This matters a lot in the middle of the night.
Pros: reception-zero interference, interface, temp monitor and music a plus
Summary: We have the previous orange and white model of the Philips monitors in addition to this one. The new version has more features and MUCH longer battery life. We are very happy that we can still control the volume AND sensitivity. The parent unit on the new model links up to the baby unit much faster than the previous model. And the range is still fantastic - we can go outside, to the street or down to the basement without ever losing the connection.
Pros: battery life, sensitvity control, volume control, can monitor baby room temp, range, interference-free, philips customer service
Cons: has features that can't be controlled from parent, led lights too bright, parent unit beep too loud, tricky to save settings, no separate buttons for sensitivity control
Summary: We have been using this monitor for almost 2 years with out first child and we have recently had our second and will continue to use it with her. I love that you can see the temperature and adjust the volume control. It has so many features! The only down fall we have had is that I don`t find that the battery lastes very long off the charger. Maybe we just need a new battey! Over all I love this monitor!!
Summary: As a new mom, I LOVE this monitor. The one I registered for had so much horrible feedback from other electronics (we live in a condo), that I needed something that wouldn't start squealing in the middle of the night. I was interested in a video monitor, but then I read how people can drive by and pick up the video images--SCARY. This monitor is perfect. I can check the temp in my daughter's room and make sure she's comfortable without getting out of bed.
Summary: We bought this monitor because we were sick of interference. This is the best monitor and can even go almost all the way to the back of our property (5 acres). Best monitor ever for large houses or yards.
