Philips AVENT DECT Baby Monitor SCD570/01 with Light - Lullabies and Vibration Alert
Philips AVENT DECT Baby Monitor SCD570/01 with Light - Lullabies and Vibration Alert
Offered by liGo
Price: £75.51

3.0 out of 5 stars No frills, does the job but room for improvement., 19 Feb. 2016
I acquired this monitor direct from Philips. It was to replace my BT Digital baby monitor which had broken (poor build quality let it down) but during its life was excellent. First off, the ergonomics: The parent unit is a nice size to hold with a clear screen, however the buttons are not very tactile, they do not light up in the dark and it is difficult even in lighted conditions to tell what each button does as the text is simply raised surface on each button without any colour contrast. As such, it is very difficult to use in the dark apart from the + and - volume buttons. The child unit has similar flaws although pressing the big glow light itself turns the light on on and off. The night light is basic and not very bright with no additional functionality. There is a decent lullaby function however. By comparison with the BT unit, the battery life on this parent unit is excellent and the child unit also has optional battery power which could be useful. The sound quality is not great: The old BT unit had crystal clear sound whereas this is quite muffled. Also, the only way to hear your child breathing is to turn sensitivity up full but then there is a lot of static.
Overall this is an ok standard monitor with no outstanding features but it is reliable so far and feels well made.


Sony Mobile SCR24 Smart Style Case Cover for Xperia Z3 - Black

3.0 out of 5 stars Good with limitations, 5 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pros:
Nice quality feel.
Does not add too much bulk.
NFC widget app to make the window usable when cover is closed.
The cover does not obscure any buttons.
Offers good protection for front and back.
Cons:
No magnetic or other device to keep the front flap closed.
Difficult to use the phone with one had: you need your other to hold the flap open.
Would be better if it could have also acted as a stand for the phone like other covers of this nature.
Only one corner of the phone case is protected against impact, others will take a dent if you drop it: however I am more interested in protecting the glass without making the phone too bulky.
Whilst the screen is visible in the cover window, the cover itself blocks the light sensor so it is not really usable outdoors as the screen stays dark.

4.0 out of 5 stars It feels very high quality though and the rain cover is good but why not just have the rain cover instead ..., 30 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quality product but very small. I can fit my Xperia Z 5" phone and some keys in it, which is what I need and no more. Also the front strap does not have long enough velcro on it to make a tight wrap around the handlebar stem so if there's anything heavy in the bag it can lean over to one side and knock off your knees. It feels very high quality though and the rain cover is good but why not just have the rain cover instead of also having an open netting?

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor, flimsy, 30 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Poor, flimsy. The back of this light is a soft plastic strip that just slides in and out with no proper secure seal and is not rigid enough to keep the batteries tightly in place so a knock can dislodge them. Mine malfunctioned after getting wet or taking a knock, but seems ok after a few days of drying out. Really not convinced at all.

3.0 out of 5 stars good for additing visibility above the height of other lights ..., 16 Mar. 2015
Ok light, good for additing visibility above the height of other lights in traffic. Battery seemed to drain quickly though as front light faded after two months of commuting. Also water leaked into the light after a downpour which is very disappointing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Broke easily, 11 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Case fits fine and doesn't add too much bulk to the phone. However the surface does not provide any grip and, once dropped from table height onto a laminate floor, the really thin weak point near the USB input snapped. Top and bottom edges of the front of the phone are unprotected however so all in all a barely average case that just about does what you want.

Works perfectly on my 05 Mazda 3. Fits into the cd changer input on the back of the stereo and cable is more than long enough to reach as far as the centre console cup holder area. Easy to install and lets you play audio via the 'Media' button on the stereo.

Screen protector is scratched, smudged and peeling at the edges after less than three weeks of being applied. Application was also difficult as the protector edges sit just beyond the curved edges of the glass, meaning some of the perimeter of the protector are exposed and gather dust.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very handy, great value., 21 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great little gadget to have in your house. I bought it initially as I couldn't bear listening to music on my laptop's tinny speakers but at the same time I didn't want to loose the portability of my laptop by hooking it up to a huge speaker system. This unit can sit in the corner of a room and will play music from your mp3 collection at an impresive volume.

Pairing the bluetooth speaker to my laptop was incredibly simple and now every time I turn on my laptop, the speaker automatically comes on and is used as the default speaker device. The sound is pretty impressive, although sometimes the bass will overpower the rest of the sound if it the volume is too high. I recommend turning off any bass boost on your device when listening on this speaker. However, I am not using the USB Bluetooth dongle with built in codecs that you can buy on the creative website so perhaps that would result in a more perfect sound quality. Also very handy is the 3.5mm audio input jack as whis means I can plug in my mp3 player.

Overall, this is a great system and very good value for money.
