Motorola MBP 20 Baby Monitor
The 1.5" LCD color display shows sound and video monitoring, with infrared night vision
1.9GHz DECT 6.0 Technology

The 1.9GHz DECT 6.0 technology offers a more reliable wireless connection over previous cordless technologies such as 900MHz cordless antennas. That means better range and less chance of missing something important in your baby's room due to a weak or dropped signal.

Color LCD Screen with Infrared Night Vision

A full-color 1.5" LCD display shows real-time video and sound in your baby's room, letting you can keep informed of what's going on visually as well as audibly. Infrared night vision means you can stay in touch with what's going in your baby's room without any lights to disturb little sleepers.

Three Lullabies Built In

Lull your baby to sleep with one of three polyphonic lullabies programmed into the MBP20.

Data Encryption for Security

The Motorola MBP20 encrypts the audio data it transfers for added security and peace of mind.

Up to 490' Range with "Out-of-Range" Warning

The superior wireless range of the MBP20 lets you keep connected to your baby up to 490 feet away. So even if you have a larger home, you don't have to give up safety or the ability to stay connected to your little one. An alarm sounds when you're getting out of range of the transmitting unit, so you'll never have to wonder if you're close enough to hear what's going on.

When my Sony Baby Call monitor started buzzing frequently and randomly shutting off I started shopping for a new monitor. I spotted the Motorola MBP20 and have been using it for about a week.

Design - Nice visual design.
Size - About the size of an iPhone, small and convenient.
Weight - Light and easy to carry.
Carrying Convenience - The belt clip can be rotated to function as a kick stand and is also removable.
Screen - Small but gives a clear and crisp image, can be turned on or off so it doesn't glare brightly at night. The audio still works even when the video is off.
Menu - Easy to navigate and change settings.
Sound - The sound is clear and there is no static. I like that it is encrypted and secure.
Battery - I use the monitor for about 7 hours total during the day and the battery is only drained about half way. I don't leave the video display on though. (Tip: On the battery itself is the suggestion to charge the battery at least 16 hours before using.)
Price - I got this for 80. I consider that a great value.

Night Vision - Image is ok, details are lost the farther you put the camera from the target area. I have two kids that share a room and I initially wanted to try to get a view of the whole room. The image is easy to see in the day but the night vision infrared bulbs only reach so far. As a result I had to put the camera closer to just one crib.
Volume - The highest volume is about the same as noises in real life. I list this as a con because my old monitor's volume goes much higher. It was easier to wake up to at night.
Voice Activation - This monitor has a feature that turns on the microphone when a certain noise level is reached. When the noise level is below that threshold the mic is off.

I bought the 1.5 inch model after all the glowing reviews but it is TERRIBLE. The video is choppy with a delay and the night vision does NOT work. The temperature reading is fine and audio is fine. Do NOT order the 1.5 inch model thinking it is a 4 star baby monitor. THIS IS VERY MISLEADING AMAZON! You should seperate the 3 different models with 3 different reviews as I am sure the larger screen model is the one getting all the 4 star reviews.

I love the form factor and the price I got this. Somehow, Amazon was offering this for $79 when it is normally $120, so I snapped it up. So for $79, you get a pretty decent and compact video monitor.

Unfortunately, being the base model, you do miss out on some features.

- The so-called sound meter is NOT a sound meter at all. The description is completely wrong. You basically get a audible and visual message when there are noises that exceed a preset fixed loudness, and this alert is ONLY active when the receiver unit is muted.

- There is no way to turn the LCD off. It's very bright even at the lowest setting so in a dark room, it lights up the night.

I think if I paid the full $120 for this, I would be disappointed, but at $79, it's a bargain!

We bought this one as a replacement to our old monitor (a Summer Infant model, not a motorola) because we thought it was at a good price for an audio/video monitor. We got the unit and it simply did not work... The parent unit confirmed it was successfully linked to the baby unit (the camera) but we could see nothing but a blur. From a blur it changed to partial video (half screen) and then we confirmed it was a damaged unit.

Well, it happens. Amazon was terrific as aways with the return procedure and shipped us another unit in on time. This one doesn't seem to have any half video issue but the camera seems unable to capture anything that we could even recognize in dark. With the lights on the image is not really good either but at least you can recognize what you're seeing... As soon as you turn the lights off all you can see is gray and black pixels. Audio worked fine though, but well, if it states that it is a video baby monitor and that it works in the dark, then it must do so, otherwise "it does't work as described".

I'm returning this second unit also.

The main problem with the 1.5 inch color screen model is that the sound is unreliable. Sometimes the receiver doesn't pick up sounds made by the kid. Not being able to hear when the kid makes a sound is unacceptable.

We've had this monitor since April of 2012. At first we were happy with it. This monitor has fine picture quality, comes on if noise is made in the room, and has some nice extra qualities like room temperature, ability to intercom baby, etc. The problem is that the viewing monitor started acting up about six months ago. We would have to wiggle the wire to get it to go on, it wouldn't work without being plugged in, it would randomly turn off. Now it has finally bitten the dust. It won't turn on at all no matter how much it's adjusted. This monitor was pretty inexpensive and I guess you get what you pay for. We are going to contact the manufacturer and see if they can do anything since we are out of our return window. It would be such a waste if we just couldn't use it anymore. I would suggest paying a little bit more for higher quality.
