  • if all you need is a sound monitor this is great, we've had ours for 5 years and it is still working great! Oct 17, 2017

  • Battery doesn't last long (starts losing capacity too soon). Clear audio, but ours developed a problem with the base where the "link" became intermittent, requiring us to turn unit on and off to fix. Sep 17, 2017

    Best monitor for the value! We've had it for 6.5 years and have used it for 4 kids. No problems! Does the job. May 05, 2017

  • Tried this monitor at a few different places (house, moms house, in-laws) and the parent unit kept cutting out and you couldn't hear anything from it. Oct 05, 2016

    Works well. It's very hard to accidentally turn it off, which is good if you have a baby and a toddler. I wish the volume on the parent went up more, it's hard to hear if we are playing outside. Jun 11, 2016

  • Great monitor with out all the bells and whistles. Help up to use and abuse for over a year and still going strong. No outside interference either Sep 30, 2014

  • This is an awesome monitor. It even sort of shuts itself off until a sound is made. Even picked up quiet snores and breathing sounds on the most sensitive setting (but you can choose the sensitivity May 07, 2014

    great basic monitor. Apr 24, 2014

  • Great monitor. The walkie talkie feature was helpful to hush baby without having to go in the room. We're on our 4th year of use and it's still working, though it does emit a loud hum sometimes. Mar 20, 2014

  • I love this product. We have had no issues. Range is great. Mar 03, 2014

  • We have 2 of these, I LOVE Them! Feb 24, 2014

  • Works so great! Long distance, linked indicator, sensitivity settings. Love! Only complaint is that the lights on it are so bright that I had to tape over some of them--they were keeping me up! Feb 01, 2014

  • We did not want a video monitor as it would've drive me over the cliff of sanity. We love this one and have never had a single problem. Great for travel, easy to use. Jan 22, 2014

  • I love this - great sound quality! I didn't want a video monitor (I thought I would look at it obsessively), so this one is perfect! Small and simple, but does a great job. Nov 21, 2013

  • Great sound-only monitor. You won't stay up all night listening to static and background noise. Nov 08, 2013

  • Absolutely no complaints! Jul 19, 2013

  • Perfect. No fancy screens or video. Just this basic sound monitor is all we've used for six months now. Don't need anything else but the sound of baby's voice to know what's going on. Jul 14, 2013

  • Works like a dream for the most part. Speakers slightly tinny after getting smashed about. Jun 18, 2013
