Rated 4 out of 5 by Anlbes Excellent value with amazing range, sound quality and parent unit battery
We have tried quite a few different baby monitors to try and find one that could cope with thick stone walls and a long garden. This baby monitor was the only one that coped. The sound quality is also much better than the other brands that we tried and it can be put loud enough that you can hear it even if there's a lot of background noise. Also battery life of the parent monitor was streets ahead of the others.
1. When the battery on the parent monitor starts to run out of it loudly beeps the baby unit, WHY?
2. Parents monitor is very bright, would be a problem if we were sleeping with it. Also when you detach the parent unit from its charging cable it beeps, not too loud but a bit annoying

* This monitor was brought for us as a gift*
Great product at first whilst our daughter was in the same room as us, but when she moved into her own bedroom and the monitor was used more through out the night the problem started.
Lights on the parents monitor were so bright that they lit our room up, bleeped so load when it needing charging or you plugged it in to charge, and when you turned it on and off.
To top that it just randomly stopped working through the night and now need to buy a replacement monitor.
I am hard of hearing and although when working ok the monitors were load enough for me to hear (especially as I could clip on to my belt) when it stopped working through out the night I wasn't able to hear my daughter - it was my husband that noticed her crying and that the monitor had actually stopped working.....

Rated 1 out of 5 by Clare132 A truly awful monitor
We exchanged our first monitor for this one after we had battery issues. However we only used it for one night. The sound quality is fine but the light indicator around the parent unit is so bright it lights up the whole room. It kept me awake more than the baby did!

Initially pleased, though beeps very loudly when being switched on and off and the lights on both the parent and base unit are very bright illuminating the whole room. The clarity generally good, though the range in my property was nowhere near the 300m stated, this then got progressively worse and then the unit suddenly ceased working after only approx 5 months of use. Not impressed!

Bought this for when my grandson visits, good value for money, has a good range distance for when we are sitting in the garden.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Lizziewizzie Poor quality
We bought this monitor for my two year old after her original baby monitor stopped working. We only wanted a basic monitor so that we could listen out for her and didn't need anything fancy. The monitor makes a very loud beeping sound when unplugged or switched off (which means no more lie ins for me as my husband used to just pick the monitor up and take it downstairs when he woke up). The light is also very bright so at night time I have to place it face down behind a pile of books otherwise it illuminates the whole room. The final nail in the coffin is that after just 4 months it suddenly died! It didn't even have the courtesy to beep before it did.
If you need a cheap monitor at grandparents house for day time naps, then this is ideal however I wouldn't recommend for new parents. This is definitely a case of you get what you pay for.
5 stars however to John Lewis who are sending me a new one tomorrow

Rated 2 out of 5 by LucyV Terrible instructions, lots of flashing and beeping, actual monitor bit is good though
I bought this monitor to take on holiday. We don't usually use a monitor at home now our son is older but as we were in unfamiliar surroundings I wanted to make sure I could hear him.
Pros - Small, so good to take on holiday. Quiet when baby not making noise (no hum or interference)
Cons - Appallingly bad instructions. Makes beeping noises when it is turned on or off - potentially waking up baby and/or your partner depending on which half is beeping. When parent part of the monitor is turned off, baby unit flashes alternately red and green, which is annoying/distracting (you might not want to turn the parent part of the monitor on until you go to bed yourself for example, which means baby has a brightly flashing monitor in their room). Parent part does not stand on its own, you either have to wear it or lie it down awkwardly.
Overall - not great. But perhaps at this lower end of the market it is to be expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mi93 Simple, efficient
We wanted a simple baby monitor like this product and we are very happy with this purchase. The sensitivity is very good to catch all the sound.
