I bought this monitor for my second child, and it definately has both pros and cons...

PROS:

1. Cost - It's a good price for a monitor with 2 receivers.

2. Sensitivity - It is very sensitive on picking up sound. I can hear my baby's movements in her bassinet when she is stirring herself up, before she begins to cry.

CONS:

1. Static - This monitor is VERY prone to static which comes in and out throughout the day. Even the "sound sensitive" lights on the receivers acknowledge the static coming from the base.

2. Not Reliable when Portable - What I mean by this is when I have the receivers operating on battery power alone, there is only a 50/50 chance that they will actually work. Even with new batteries, I constantly have problems with getting either receiver to turn on.

I have only owned one monitor before this one, and didn't have any problems with the first. The first was the Safety 1st Monitor, price $16.99. If I could, I would return this monitor and purchase the updated version of the first. However, I cannot do that. :(

I have had this monitor for 7 months + now, and I loved it at first. It is super sensitive and the range is good for my house. BUT the static is now so bad that I can't hear him as well as I used to. I am now looking for another monitor and I am not happy about it. I recommend buying a different one from the start.

Out of all the baby monitors this one is the best one I have found for a reasonable price. It's range is amazing! I can go out side and do yard work and it doesn't fuzz in and out. It really is the best for your money. My two kids have often grabbed the antenna swinging it around (which usually ruins monitors) and it has still survived with no problems at all. I think I will purchase another set to have two sets on hand and just for "just in case". We've had this for two years and we hope to have it much longer.

I ordered this because of the positive reviews. I shouldn't have bothered. I opened the box and immediately the receivers did not work with batteries - fresh batteries from two separate packages. I figured it wouldn't be that big of a deal to just plug the receivers in. I did finally get them working plugged in BUT there was a horrendous humming sound that was just too loud to even be tolerable. I couldn't even hear another adult speaking into the transmitter because of the humming!

So, I recommend passing on this one and ordering a different brand. I'm returning this one tomorrow.

This was the second monitor we tried. We live in a downstairs apartment and all we picked up with the first monitor was our upstairs neighbor's monitor for their child. We've found much better results with this monitor. The range is adequate for our entire apartment, even while watching tv or listening to the radio. The volume is loud enough to hear in the shower and it is sensitive enough to pick up a slight wimper. We're very pleased!

These things are cheap. They work well enough, but you get static fuzz from just about any source of electromagnetic interference. I found that I had to plug the receivers into circuits without ANY other electronics plugged in to avoid problems, and even then I had issues with certain LED bulbs just being in the vicinity!

Also, they WILL break. We had two sets, and all four receivers eventually stopped working for one reason or another. Typically the battery compartment is the first to go, and then you have to keep them plugged in for them to work at all. Then, the plug connection stops working unless you tape the thing in position. Finally, the knob goes, and you have to toss it. I think they managed to last 2-3 years, though.

That said, they do work, so if you want a cheap baby monitor solution for not much money, this is a good choice.
