Rated 2 out of 5Â by Steve_and_Suzanne Battery and hardware problems
The product worked great the first time we used it, sadly, it was to test it a month before we had the baby. Now one parent unit will not stay on for more than a few minutes (keeps 3x beeping after charge) and the other one opens up but will not accept any button presses. We followed the instructions for the first time charge but I can't believe one month of down time completely destroyed the batteries...and of course, they aren't simple AAAs you can buy anywhere!
Stay away from this one. It was a gift to us and it was not possible to get any help in time (what good is a monitor if you have to send it for 8 weeks when you need it!!!).

I got these monitors because they were digital and my old one wasn't. It has great sound and it reaches a lot further than my old monitor. I also love the vibrate feature - I recently ruptured an ear drum which made it difficult to hear the monitor, but the vibrate feature made it so I could just keep it clipped to my pocket and I would know when my baby woke up.

I bought this model when I had my first in Feb. of 2011. I am now expecting baby #2 any day now and it is still going strong :) I haven't had to replace the batteries in it as of yet and it has received daily usage. The range on this monitor is AMAZING. I can go outside while baby is napping and hang up some clothes on the line and be able to hear her crystal clear. My husband and I couldn't be happier with this monitor. I have had to re-pair the parent units to the nursery units a couple times, but that's really the only issue I have had with them. Hope this helps!

We've used this monitor for a year now. The low battery signal starts to go off after about 4 hours of use. This means that you are woken up by it if you try to use the monitor overnight. The only solution to the issue is to keep the "overnight" monitor charging while you sleep. I tried to just let the monitor completely die and after a few hours of beeping I gave up and just charged the stupid thing. It will also beep if it looses the signal. Which is good but I don't know how not to make this happen. Will buy a new monitor for our next child.
