Summary: Having used a cheaper BT model in the past, this Philips unit is superior in a number of key areas. The sound quality is excellent quality even when through 2 floors (the unit does have a range of over 300 metres). Programmed music to play in background is a nice addition (although it is for a short time), as is the nightlight. Controls and setting are easily displayed and set, and the parent unit itself is sleek and can easily be carried around/ put in your pocket.
Summary: This is very good gadget inside the house specially when you have a second floor. I used this as an intercom sometimes if I am lazy want to go up and down the stairs. The sensitivity is superb I can hear even the movement of my baby in his cot. And I could talk back to him when I'm trying to calm him down so I don't need to go to his bed when he is just half asleep he thought I'm in his room. And I could remotely turn the music on or off the sooth him.
Summary: This is a superb baby monitor. The DECT technology means that there is no interference and a superb reception, which is paramount with a baby monitor. The temperature guage is a very helpful addition. The humidity sensor seems a bit unnecassary in the UK as we don't suffer extreme humidity, but i can see its worth in other countries.
Summary: read an article about the health concerns around the 'Dect' technology which these baby monitors (and some cordless phones) use. You can read for yourself, but basically the part which stays in the room with your child sends out a microwave every few minutes. This has been linked to sleep disturbance, lethargy when awake and concerns about how effects the developing brain!!! I know! scarey stuff!
Summary: Our Tomy platinum monitor recently broke (after 3 years) and I wanted to get a replacement, but after reading the reviews for this monitor (and the fact that it was half price in Mothercare) I decided to get this. Its quite a dinky little monitor and box, but I miss my old Tomy. With the Tomy you could hear the baby breathing at quite a low level, but with this monitor you have to turn it right up and there is quite a lot of buzzing which we didnt have before.
Summary: Very easy to use, does well what it supposed to do. One thing should be noticed that replacing the batteries in baby's unit is a bit difficult, and it would be better if baby's unit would also be provided with rechargeable stuff. I would certainly recommend this product, when your baby have grown up, you can still use the humidity sensor :-).
Summary: We bought this baby phone before the birth of our first child, in the belief that we were buying one of the best products on the market. Our baby is now 3 months old, and after 3 months of problems with the product we are seriously considering throwing it away and replacing it with one from Angelcare. The most important thing about a baby phone is naturally that it is safe.
Summary: With 3 children I've used a variety of baby monitors and this is simply the best. Yes, it is expensive but it'll last for years and the design, build quality and performance of this monitor is exceptional. The parent unit is the size of a small pager, very discreet and easy to carry around in a pocket. It comes with a well made, quality carry strap which means as well as carrying it in a pocket (with optional belt clip) you could also carry it around your neck.
