Style Name: Monitor with Two Parent Units Verified Purchase
As a new father, I wasn't sure what to expect. After trying a few older models by different brands, I ended up just getting something cost efficient by looked stable based on reviews. When I ordered these, I had pretty good hopes, but was very surprised. They are amazing. Before our baby came, I would be in the nursery setting up things and could communicate very easily to others throughout the house (was on a ladder). After a bad thunderstorm, we lost power, and they still worked just fine.
They now work great with baby in the nursery and we are so happy we got this brand/model!

Update: My original review was made a July, but I should have waited a little longer. It's now October, and just one night the units all started beeping at 3am and told me they were "Not Linked." There wasn't a power-outage or anything like that. When I finally got in touch with VTech they told me "oh yea, that happens some times. If you followed the instructions in the manual then they are broken and won't talk to each other anymore. Sorry... Oh, and you can't return them because you don't have the original box."

Another Update: After my complaint was heard on Amazon, VTech took my broken item back for a replacement. In May 2013 (not quite a year after purchasing the original, let alone receiving the above replacement), I had to contact VTech again due to the same issue when I moved to a new house. This time VTech seemed to be much more on the ball. As soon as I gave them the model number and said "they are not linking" the representative stopped me and started the process of sending out a new unit. Within 2 days I had a replacement.

Style Name: Monitor with Two Parent Units Verified Purchase
We bought this based on the many reviews and I am sad to say that I am really disappointed. This couldnt handle being used at 40-50' in a single story home. It at times will link up and in the middle of the night start beeping because it lost its connection which makes for a rough nights sleep. Unreliable and wish I could return it and buy something else. Very disappointed.

Style Name: Monitor with Two Parent Units Verified Purchase
I had this unit shipped overnight after our NTM-910YLW - Sony Baby Call Nursery Monitor unit started having constant issues with a ticking noise that would not have been very sleep-friendly for parents. Prior to this, we would get interference with cell phones and other electronic devices intermittently, but we perservered.

Let me note first that I have only just got the VTech today, but already I like it. I chose the model with two receivers so that we could have them permanently in the two rooms most frequented (bedroom and living room).

The parent units require an initial 11-18 hour charge before unplugging and using without the power cord. There are two different instructions. Therefore, I would suggest going with the longer charge to ensure the battery is well conditioned.

Aside from the hiccups that our Sony had, let me point out some major 'user-related' differences.

The Sony NTM 900 that we bought had only one parent unit. This particular VTech monitor came with two parent units. Sometimes when going to bed, I'd forget to grab the monitor, so it's one little hassle I don't have to consider now.

The Sony NTM 900 is analogue and while you can adjust channels, if you have a lot of electronics, or many neighbors, you will probably find this is not the model for you.

The VTech is digital and uses DECT Technology (the same stuff as is used with cordless telephones). I'm not sure that a police scanner won't pick up on your baby conversations, but they claim it's very secure. So far, I have no outside interference, funny noises etc (unless you count the baby babble).

UPDATE 6/4/13 - I'm keeping the Vtech rating at 4 stars. This is due to battery life. I can get about maybe 6-8 hours out of a charge, which is not very much. I'm guessing they really cheaped out on the battery. It does beep to alert you when the battery is running low. As long as you remember to plug it in every evening, it's not a problem. Otherwise, it's a fabulous unit and has been working excellent for our family. Still the best choice of the 3 I reviewed below.

UPDATED 3/28/13
I've owned the below 3 units over the course of the last 2 years. I recommend the VTech for now (I've only had it a few weeks, but it is by far the winner in performance AND value). For features, I only listed the features that I felt would be important to the average buyer. Some of the units had other features that I didn't list because I didn't think there were critical in my decision making process.

Also, it might be important to note that we live in a 2 story house and we have Wi Fi.

1 star
Price I paid: $95

Features:

night light - yes
battery backup on Baby Unit - yes
Temperature - no (but available on upgraded units)
Visual sound indicator - yes, LED

Ease of use and customization of features (ie: setting the sensitivity level, etc): easy, intuitive.

Other thoughts: Loved this monitor until....... after about 6 months of use the parent unit would randomly turn itself off with no warning, no beeping, nothing.
