5.0 out of 5 stars Best iPhone case I have found, October 4, 2012
Very pleased with this iPhone 5 case. The soft touch finish is great - it feels great in the hand and offers enough grip to feel secure, while still allowing it to easily slide in and out of pockets or bags. It is very resistant to scratches, scuffs, and discoloration, a problem with other cases. The fit is almost perfect, the only issue being due to the new beveled design of the iPhone 5 front edges, which makes the fit ever so slightly looser than this same style case was on the iPhone 4S, but I have not found it to be a problem. Best of all this case maintains the great aesthetics and feel of the iPhone 5 while still offering a good level of protection, all without adding unwanted bulk to the size of the phone. Highly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great audio-only monitor, easy setup and works perfectly, October 1, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
UPDATE: After 4 months of use the unit completely stopped working out of the blue. I unplugged the baby unit to move it to a new outlet, and when it powered back up it can no longer link to either of the parent units at any distance even with all other wireless electronics in the house turned off. Attempts to troubleshoot from the manual have all failed. Performing searches and looking at recent review of this unit indicate that many people find the product fails around the 4-5 month mark, and while I have been unable to get a response from Customer Service yet, all indications are that they have no interest in honoring the 1 year warranty. Buyer beware.

Original review:
This VTech audio baby monitor has worked perfectly from day one, and two months in I cannot come up with anything negative to say about it. For the price, having two parent receivers and the features such as 2 way communication make this a great deal, I would definitely recommend this product to any parents out there trying to decide between the many available monitoring options.

For those of you looking for a video solution as well, if you know your way around your home network and own a smartphone or an iPod touch, I strongly recommend pairing this VTech audio monitor with a Foscam FI8910W WiFi video camera. Buying these two products together is less than half the cost of most quality single dedicated baby video monitors, but this setup provides a great experience with a lot more flexibility than having a single dedicated video unit, and all of that adds up to that little bit of extra piece of mind.
