Speaking as someone who works in the electronics industry, most baby monitors are simply junk. I've owned several of them. The Philips model is the one we kept and the one we used. It has a crystal-clear signal and zero annoying interference.

That said, I have read the reviews of people who have had trouble with this unit, and I think I understand what's happening in those cases. The monitor has a sensitivity adjustment. This is a useful feature: if you don't want to hear every little sound coming from your baby's room, you can set the sensitivity accordingly. When the adjustment is done correctly, you won't hear every yawn and stretch, but you will hear your child crying or calling for you.

But, here's the problem: the same buttons that adjust the volume on the parent unit also adjust the sensitivity. To adjust the volume, you press the +/- buttons. To adjust the sensitivity, you press the "sensitivity button" (which is sort of hidden on the side), and then press the +/- buttons. Hence, it is really easy to adjust the sensitivity by accident, when you think you're adjusting the volume. Poor user interface design, to be sure. But when this monitor is adjusted correctly, we've found it to work much better than any other we've tried.

I was hesitant to get a monitor at this price ($90-100) considering there are other baby monitors out there available for much less. However, I'm glad to say it was well worth the investment.


- No Interference from other devices
The largest concern for me was interference free performance as I live in a condo/apartment complex and there are at least 12 other 2.4ghz wireless routers that I can see from my computer. Who knows how many other 900mhz telephones/ 2.4 ghz cordless phones there are. We also are able to use cell phones around this baby monitor without interference as well.

- Safety in the event of a power outage / batteries.
The monitor also has battery backup for both the parent and the child unit (with the child unit being rechargeable and the parent unit non rechargeable). Both units can plug into the wall. I accidentally turned off the child unit the other evening and as a safety feature the parent unit started beeping (in case the parent unit for some reason fails / loses power). Unfortunately there are no precautions when the parent unit fails/runs out of battery. It simply shuts off. However, the rechargeable battery in the parent unit (at least while it is still new) can last for multiple evenings on a sensitivity level of about 1/2. However, we are fortunate to have an power outlet next to our bed so the parent unit can be plugged in and the batteries used only if the power goes out. The disadvantage though is this will likely dramatically decrease the life of the rechargeable battery.

- Distances/coverages
I live in a 1100 sq ft condo with the parent and child's room located about 50 feet away on the same level. The walls that separate us are simple drywall. No interference or sound quality issues.

Getting a good baby monitor became a priority for my wife and I when our son arrived 6 weeks early. As a premature baby he suffered from the risk of apnea, (where he stops breathing) so we had to have something that would let us hear if he was in distress.

After getting fed up with constant static and feedback of lesser monitors, we decided to bite the bullet and buy what most websites consider to be the "Top of The Line" when it comes to monitors.

Some of the features we were impressed with:
* Long Range.
* Adjustable sensitivity.
* "Talk" function that allows you to talk from the parent unit to the baby unit.
* Night Light.
* Physical size and looks.

When we turned it on we were amazed by its crystal clear sound, complete lack of static and the adjustable sensitivity. I was sold - this was the perfect monitor for us! Until we discovered a design flaw that renders this unit more of an "Alert" than a "Monitor".

As previous reviewers have pointed out, the unit is equipped with a "Silent Mode" that in essence turns the baby unit's mic off when there is only ambient noise. (As a side note, this silent mode is not referred to in the manual, and the customer service agent at Philips had never heard of it and told me the unit was faulty.) The idea is that the baby unit will not broadcast ambient noise, but come to life when the baby makes noise over and above what the unit deems as ambient. In theory this could be a neat feature, but in practice it's an unacceptable safety hazard.

As the caregiver for an elder who's recovering from stroke, I need to monitor her condition constantly -- a difficult task when you're also taking care of additional household responsibilities. When I found this monitor offered DECT technology, I jumped on it because I've been very pleased with the quality of sound from my DECT wireless phones.

This wireless monitor is just as good as my phones. I keep the parent monitor with me at all times, and I'm able to hear the smallest sounds from my elder's room. Add to this that I'm able to talk to her even though I'm somewhere else in house or yard -- just what I needed!

Setup was quick and easy. I charged the parent monitor overnight, installed lithium batteries in the baby monitor, and I was ready to go. The two monitors linked up immediately.

This monitor solves my problem and gives me peace of mind. Excellent product, Philips!
