Score 10.0/10
Good points:
You can see what your baby is doing
The machine 'rests' when there is no noise but springs into action when there is a slight mumour which conserves energy
The camera is not too huge and therefore fits nicely into most small spaces.
Neat design

Lorna, Fife Two children under three

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Being able to walkabout with the video monitor is good.
Music is ok.
Bad points:
delay in sounds from Baby,
Picture quality (could be better) a bit pixelised and juddery when in night mode.
Screen size a bit small.
Battery life not great only lasts a short while (couple of hrs) when not plugged into wall.
night light pointless.
camera could be more adjustable / option for wall mounting? I've had to tie mine to a hook on the wall.
overall seems a bit cheap in manufacture.

Bad points:
This monitor is awful. The sound quality is extremely poor, it sounds like a toy walkie talkie in terms of clarity, it's very "tinny" and unclear. The picture quality on the video is even worse. You cannot make out anything on it when the room is dark, which is 99% of the time they way it would be used. It uses more heat sensing then infrared so you see only a dark fuzzy blur where baby is and in no way can you tell what you are looking at on the montor except when the blurry fuzz of what you know must be your baby moves. This was overall a really poor quality monitor, not worth the price if it was even £10. Don't bother with this, it's terrible for both audio and visual use.
