I ordered the Sony BabyCall with two receivers when our second son was a few months old. We use one receiver with the new monitor and the second receiver with our old monitor so we can effectively monitor both our sons' rooms. Works great. If both are sleeping, you do have to carry two monitors (but I was sleeping with two of the Graco receivers because they weren't reliable.) They are set on different channels and do not interfere with one another. The BabyCall is sensitive enough, that I could rely on only the monitor in our baby's room to hear our older son during naptime.
The positive things I rely on: 1) you can hear them breathing through this monitor it is so sensitive!; 2) the battery life; 3) range. It is as clear as if you were in the room...but, actually magnified.
The negative things that don't bother me: 1) so sensitive it will interfere w our mobile phones so we have to keep them separated; 2) so sensitive the receiver can sometimes scream at you if you aren't accustomed and walk too closely to your child's door while carrying it. Our first Sony would interfere with the microwave but I have not noticed it with this one and I frequently have both receivers in the kitchen (note: new microwave as well).
For me, the reliability and sensitivity far out weigh any interference issues!!
DO NOT BUY THIS IF YOU LIVE IN APARTMENT BUILDING.
The Sony BabyCall does a outstanding job picking up the children's voices and movements while minimizing (likely by design) many background noises. This is probably a plus when monitoring an infant, but for keeping tabs on two active toddlers some background noises (i.e. a jiggling door knob) can be rather helpful. These other noises can still be heard, just not as prominently. This is the only "deficiency" that I have observed. I have had no range or static issues with this unit whatsoever.
Overall, the Sony BabyCall monitor is quite good and, considering that it comes with two receivers, it's an excellent value.
**As a sidenote, a week before purchasing the Sony, I ordered and returned the Graco Ultra Clear II 49mhz Baby Monitor--don't waste your time or money on that one, the sensitivity was horribly deficient.
I couldn't even get through the first night before turning the thing off and deciding to take it back. A lot of reviews I've read have mentioned a lot of beeping. I never heard the beeping, I imagine because we didn't have it long enough to hear beeping. All I heard was a lot of random clicks and pops that originated from the machine itself. It also amplifies every last noise in my house. Crickets. The house settling. The air conditioning switching on. A car alarm down the block. The baby sighing. Noises that are so faint that I would barely hear them without the monitor are amplified greatly. All I want to hear is the baby, and not the little noises, I need to hear her crying loudly. Between the monitor amplifying too much noise and creating it's own noise, it's impossible to get any sleep.
We ended up digging out the old monitor and using it. It lasted about another year before it finally gave out. We couldn't find the same one, so we bought the cheapest one we could find at walmart and it works okay. I don't know if they still make the parents brand monitor, but it was a good basic model and we had barely any issues with it.
But I don't recommend the Sony monitor. I couldn't even make a single night with it before taking it back and I had to fight the urge to smash it to bits.
