Our one big gripe is that there is no audible warning sound when the battery on the parent unit dies. This is not a problem as long as you keep it plugged in. But on a few occasions now (when we were sleep deprived) we forgot to plug it back in during the middle of the night and awoke to a dead monitor, thus inspiring a mad dash down the hall to check on baby. The manufacturer could easily have built an audible warning beep that signaled that the battery was on its last leg. They did manage to do this with a visual warning signal (the light changes color) - but that is not terribly useful when you're sleeping!
Other than this flaw, this really is a very good monitor. Just remember to plug in your parent unit if you use it while you're sleeping.
+One button operation. (Turn on the baby-unit, turn on the parent-unit...done. There is no channel button to worry about.)
+Crystal clear. No static even at max volume.
+Loudest setting is loud enough.
+Lights show level of noise baby is making.
+Neat design. (This may sound weird, but baby monitors are for parents...not for babies. So why do so many of them look like toys?)
+Uses 3 AAA NiMH rechargeable batteries. (So they can be easily replaced if needed. Or if you don't plug it in, you can just use regular AAA's.)
+Only one parent unit (If you think you need two parent units, you should try either getting a smaller house or trusting your spouse.)
+Range sufficiently covers our house and yard.
-I have my doubts about the belt clip. No problems yet, though.
-There is no charging cradle for the parent unit. So you have to plug in the cord every time. (Not a huge deal, but it would be nice.)
We haven't had it long enough to speak to its durability and battery life, but for now we are very happy with this product.
Bottom-line: We feel like we can trust this baby monitor.
UPDATE: Almost a year later, this monitor is still working great! We have no issues with interference or degrading quality. The batteries still hold their charge. Only complaint is the belt clip because it comes off easily. But this thing has fallen many times onto the hard tile floor and it still works fine.
We had to have digital since we have an apartment complex behind our house. We were ALWAYS picking up phone calls and other monitors with our 900 MHz monitors. If we can hear them we have to assume they can hear us...
The monitor is quiet. No static and we can hear as much as we want. We can turn the volume way down and eliminate the "little noises" that people complain about with other monitors.
I love the small size. I am figuring out the lights. I do have to keep the monitor receiver turned and facing away from our bed, otherwise the lights are too bright at night.
I am so glad I didn't succumb and finally spend over twice the price of this one on the Philips, which I am sure is a really great model, but more than we need with a toddler and preschooler.
