This review is from: Philips AVENT SCD600/00 Digital Video Baby Monitor (Baby Product)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The Philips Avent SCD600/00 is a very well made product. It really is a good piece of hard ware - I felt that it has nice smooth edges in both the actual camera and the separate monitor. It even survived a hard throw from a bad tempered toddler which it received today!! The camera was very easy to position so that you are in total view of your baby. The picture is very clear in colour which you could easily adjust with a small knob at the side of the monitor. At night you press a small button at top of camera and then you still can see a clear picture of your baby at night using night vision. The camera has small bright lights all around it for nighttime which helps the camera get a clear view of baby at night. The picture at night time comes up black and white while day time it comes up colour. It also has a microphone that the slightest noise from the baby can be heard which is very reassuring at night. I also liked the lullaby addition the music comes up clear and nicely tuned through the camera, it is in a very smoothing tone and it helped to put baby over to sleep. You adjust the volume through the actual monitor using a small dial which is placed on the right hand side of the actual screen of the monitor.
I also felt the shape of the monitor which you carry around with you fits neatly and comfortably using a clip which you can attach to a belt or waistband. It was extra assurance, when I wanted to hang washing out as it was an extra eye on the baby as that was one thing I always waited to someone was in the house when I wanted to do a quick job outside. It has a full range of 150 meters which I thought was very good. The monitor will let you know if you are out of range.
A full battery charge lasts at least 36 hrs for the monitor, I think this could be due to it goes on 'sleep' mode until a noise or movement is made it activates and screen turns automatically on. Therefore you are sure not to miss baby wakening or movement near the baby which I found very useful. I also was content leaving it beside my bed knowing that I could hear or see the baby whenever I wanted as all you had to do was press a small button on the left side to turn the screen on. If you touched any button or dial on the monitor this also turned the screen on.
I would not think twice of recommending this to any parent as the reassurance value alone is great.
It will be an addition to any parent even when the kids are growing from toddler to school age as you could use it as an extra eye when you put the children to bed to make sure they stay in bed!!! You will get your money value out of it- yes it is expensive but I feel well worth the expense as it will pay for itself in the uses you can have, and the assurance you can have when you are in a different room, you will know when your child needs you as the microphone is really sensitive. Also there is volume control on the monitor plus a light shows when a noise is being made if you have volume turned low for any reason, the louder the noise the longer the sequence of lights in the front of the monitor actually is.
This is one item all new parents should purchase or even for a present it would be really nice to receive.
