Great monitor!Apr 15, 2010
I hesitantly purchased this monitor after reading so many negative reviews, but took a chance because it was in our price range and is 2.4GHz instead of the 900MHz one we had previously, which was picking up too much interference in our house from electronics and cell phones. Overall, I am very pleased with this monitor. It does not have a constant hum like our 900 MHz one did, and does not pick up interference from our many electronics and cell phone. I do see what other reviewers mean about the blue light being a bit much; in the dark, it looks like a strobe light. That is the only negative we have experienced, and I plan just to put a piece of masking tape over the light to dim it a bit. We have an 1800 sq-ft house, and have not had any range issues like others have mentioned. In addition to good range from receiver to transmitter, it has good range from baby to transmitter, meaning it picks up noises far away from the base station transmitter. Also, it has a sleek look to it, with modern silver color, a nice rechargeable stand, and a short antenna. It also has a belt clip for easy portability. Overall, a very nice, clear-speaker, low-interference, sleek-looking, well-priced baby monitor. Give it a try; you can always return it.

Nowhere near the stated rangeFeb 09, 2007
By Jeff Dubin
We've lived without a baby monitor for a couple of years, but once we moved and our bedroom was no longer right next to the baby's, we felt it was a good idea to get a monitor. My only stipulation was that it had to be a digital monitor to protect our privacy.
The way-too-bright blue LED lights and lack of audio squelching (to suppress small movements from being amplified) is something we can deal with. Our problem is the range. It's not even 80ft between rooms, on the same floor, and even with doors open and near line-of-sight, there are frequent dropouts in reception. Because of the digital transmission, there's no static, but the constant hiss of amplified background noise abruptly stops with a hiccup, and then a second later, it comes back. It's not enough to wake you up, but it is enough to annoy you if you're falling asleep - especially since it happens over, and over, and over...
Maybe the reception problems are from the wifi network we have setup here, which also operates at 2.4GHz. But at this point, where can you go where there aren't wifi access points, cordless phones, etc. setup? I don't understand why it's so complicated to build an excellent, digital baby monitor. It's no different than a one-way cordless phone, and my cordless phones have been rock-solid for 8+ years now.
Graco has a competing product I might try, but reviews on that unit seem mixed, and many are equally unenthusiastic.

Beep, Beep, Beep!!!Apr 27, 2008
By H. Cooper
A digital baby monitor seemed like a good idea at the time, but I am ready to go back to my old analog monitor! This monitor makes a loud beeping noise every time we use the microwave, tv remote control, or anything cordless in the house. I'm sending it back this week!

Range is about 20 feetMay 28, 2007
Yep, it's advertised to have a range of 600 feet. Our youngest child's room and our bedroom are on opposite sides of the house, he's upstairs and we're downstairs, so _maybe_ we're 70 feet apart, at most. This thing was ENTIRELY useless at that range. To get a good clear signal, the receiver has to be about 20 feet from the transmitter, which is utterly worthless.
We had our trusty Sony NTM-900 which worked great, but it was years old and finally died. Sony stopped making it, though one can still find it around here and there, I cannot find anywhere (including eBay) which has a two-receiver unit. This was rated in third by CR (tied with the Graco), and I have no idea how CR gave this such a high rating--it's COMPLETELY useless. The other review her was much too kind.

awful monitorNov 02, 2010
The blue light is WAY too bright and ours flashes for unknown reasons. We have terrible static problems. There seems to be a constant hissing noise as well. I bought without any research. BIG MISTAKE. Had I read everyone's reviews I would have skipped it. We bought this for my 2 year old's room to replace the AngelCare Monitor that is soon to be moved into our new baby's room. (Love that AngelCare, BTW) Looks like we will have to keep looking.
