Summary: The best pram by far, I've used other peoples prams and seen similar ones in use, none of them compare to this one.
Pros: Excellently made, fantastic for overnight stays, as you don't need to take a carrycot/moses basket/travel cot, just take the stand with you. Car seat clips onto chassis. Raincover and sun shade included. No extra seat unti, carrycot converts into seat unit unlike Mamas & Papas similar version. Huge shopping basket. Front and rear facing. Great range of colours. Using again for my second, with a buggyboard.
Cons: Heavy chassis to lift in and out of car if had caesarean.
Great pram for walking with tinies, not brilliant for portability or for 5-8 month olds.

Summary: They key question, would I buy again? Yes, if I had a winter baby, but... I would rent or borrow a bugaboo for the 5 to 8 month period, and if the (or any) manufacturer is reading this - please try and produce a summer liner for the buggy, and please try and incorporate an integral alternative to the ubiquitous muslin/cloth pegged to the front of prams!
Pros: 1. It's a fabulously sturdy pram which accommodates quite large babies. In car terms, a luxury German car. 2. It wheels very easily. 3. It is really snug so ideal for an autumn-born babe. 4. The pram part has covers which are easily removed for washing. 5. A baby can sleep in it, and it transfers easily to the stand which rocks if you want it to. 6. The hood comes pretty far forward, keeping out the sun pretty well when in pram mode, and altogether in buggy mode. 7. E...
Cons: 1. The downside of the sturdiness is its weight and bulkiness. 2. It was too warm during the summer for our baby. 3. Apparently like most prams, less easy to clean once a buggy. A summerweight liner would be a great boon. 4. You still need a sunshade, like most prams. 5. The biggest problem - its shape is not supportive enough for 5-8 month olds who want to sit up but need support. The bugaboo shape is much better for this.
Excerpt: Had my Linear Sleepover for 6 years now, it has served 3 babies and is still going strong. Currently in pushchair mode for DD3 aged 16m (when she was a bit smaller DD2 could also ride in the pushchair with her). Huge shopping basket is so useful - brilliant for picnics/days out BUT it is bulky and heavy and getting the pushchair/pram fitting off & on is not always easy. The car seat is fiddly. The overnight stand and white accessories are a waste of time.

Excerpt: Please Please Please BE AWARE of the warranty's offered on the Silver Cross Classic Sleep over. In my excitment I bought and paid for my classic sleep over pram and left it on at the shop until just before my son was born. This was a BIG MISTAKE. The warranty on the pram is 12 months and it starts from when you buy the pram not from when you start using it.

Excerpt: A luxurious pram that looks amazing. Have received several compliments when pushing it around. My baby loves it. As a winter baby I wanted to make sure she would be warm and comfy and she was. After six months moved it to seat position rather than flat cot bed. Downside is that it is huge! A 4x4 of prams, but that's also what attracted me. Wheels are not able to swivel so tricky / heavy to manoeuvre.

Excerpt: I LOVE THIS PRAM!!!! Having 2 teenage daughters and a teenage stepdaughter, finding out that another was on the way was a huge shock to the system, but when I got my head around it my first thought about a pram was Silver Cross. A bit old fashioned I know but they have never let me down yet. I like the classic chassis as it looks substancial, and it is, great suspension plenty of space underneath for shopping bags and a nice bounce to help baby get to sleep.

Excerpt: I bought this pram with this amazing illusion that I would get out for lots of walks with my baby and toddler. After using it for 3 months I have mixed feelings about this pram. On the good side, its is so beautiful and luxurious and I always receive pleasant comments about it. The quality of it is second to none. My baby seems really comfortable and sleeps well in it. I used it as his moses basket for the first couple of months. It is lovely to push round.
Excerpt: I love this system although it has cost me a fortune because I bought both chassis (classic and linear, one for walking and the linear for shopping and when I need space in the boot. It is big and takes up a lot of room in the house although I have just got into a routine of folding it down as soon as we get home and putting it out of the way because it takes up too much space otherwise.
Excerpt: I have this in navy and love it. Lots of people comment how classic and smart it looks. We chose the swivel wheels chasis rather than the one shown for the sake of pushing it around and turning corners easily, especially in shops. The chasis is easy to put up/down. The comfort of the actual pram is lovely and we also use it as a downstairs moses basket on the stand and it looks lovely.

Excerpt: This "quality" travel system is "better value than it looks"; a carry cot stand suitable for overnight sleeping, footmuff and changing bag are all included and it's very generously sized, so "long-lasting too". Mums found it "super comfy", "very well made and lovely looking", plus it converts easily to a forward facing pushchair. It falls down on bulkiness, "you need quite a boot" and it's heavy - so not one for public transport or if you live upstairs.
