3l Best View Summer Infant Pan/scan Baby Monitor Redesign
The reason I gave Summer's Best View Monitor 5 stars was because I couldn't give it 10! I ordered this product for my wife after our 6-month-old son was twice found lying on his stomach, near-face-down. I cannot emphasize enough how completely satisfied we are with this product. After reading the 2 negative comments (one complained the monitor did not work when on battery power, and the other thought the picture was too grainy when used in a dark room in the middle of the night - you've got to be kidding!!!) I can assure you the quality of this $179 product is better than my $20,000 night vision goggles provided me by the National Guard. If you're expecting this to look like your 60" High Definition Flat Screen TV in your living room then yes, you're going to be disappointed. My wife and I absolutely LOVE this product and I cannot emphasize enough the peace-of-mind it has given us. I know because my brother died of SIDS, and the emotional scar it left on my mother is not something I would wish on anyone. Our son's bedroom is pitch-dark at night, and this camera makes it appear as though there is a spotlight shining on him - his face is that clear and bright (isn't technology great!!). After a few nights using the 2.5" hand-held screen, we wanted to experiment with the Audio-Video jacks provided so we plugged them into our 32" HD Flat Screen TV in our bedroom. Well... let me tell you.... this is the cat's meow!!! Now either my wife or I can simply open our eyes and immediately enjoy an absolutely incredible image of our son at rest (and can hear him over the TV as well) - it doesn't get better than this!!!!

First of all, I've tried 3 different baby monitors with the screen. What I expected/wanted from the baby monitors are these:
1) Good quality of the screen so I can see my baby (even breathing: chest going up and down at night)
2) Easy of use (I just hate anything that is a pain to use)
3) Camera pan/zoom option (My baby moves around and I like having camera close to him, so this is a really good feature to have)

So, let me explain how those three monitors performed.

First one is Motorola Digital Video Baby Monitor with 3.5 Inch Color LCD Screen (At Amazon regular price: 229.99)

This one is the winner. It has a good picture quality, zoom in, is really easy to use. That's it. It satisfied all those three categories. Other feature I also liked but not necessary are,, talk back, lullaby (well, kinda useless for my baby). I wish it was made with a little better quality plastic (compared to other two I've tried) and wish it had clock on the screen, which is very helpful at night when the baby wakes up! One thing I noticed though, was that battery of parent unit goes out SO QUICK when it is not plugged in, and use rechargeable battery.

Second one is Samsung Wireless Video Security Monitoring System w/ 3.5" LCD (At Amazon regular price: 179)

This one,, sigh... I really wanted to love it... I always trust Samsung quality. and YES, it comes up to that quality standard (both physical material that is made out of, and some great added features) that I look for. BUT there are a few cons that I just could not live with.
First of all, this one is LOADED with FEATURES. It has the best quality screen (almost like a digital camera! which is very impressive for a baby monitor!

In only 15 months, I have had to contact Summer to replace not one, not two, but THREE defective handheld viewers. With absolutely no dropping nor moisture, the handheld units simply stink and are constantly, yet randomly, going bad. One the first two, the screen just stopped viewing any image whatsoever after several months of very responsible usage. The latest unit is now randomly rebooting, locking up and the Summer splash image that appears upon boot up is not showing. Clearly signs that this unit is about to completely fail, too. Yes, video monitors are fantastic and almost a necessity, but I would NEVER, EVER, EVER recommend anyone (other than my very worst of enemies) purchase a monitor by Summer. Upon calling customer service, yes, they will replace your unit (after all, the have tons of experience servicing this request given shoddy product quality)--after you finally manage to get them on the phone. BUT, they will make you box and ship your entire unit (handheld and cameras) back to them, be processed by them BEFORE they deign to ship your replacement. Plan on being without a camera for at least 2 weeks while they fumble through this process. Should they ship you a replacement immediately and trust you to ship your defective unit back to them so you are not without a critical child-monitoring device for 2 (or more) weeks? Of course they should and most other companies would. OH, BUT NOT OUR SUMMER. They don't care if you are without the device you paid them for while they stumble through getting you your replacement. Even upon having to return the SECOND AND THIRD units, do they offer to ship your replacement immediately. They still make you go through the same multiple week delay before shipping out your replacement.Read more ›
