Verified Purchase
We bought this 1 year ago, and it has generally worked fine until now, though battery life is poor and the range is nowhere close to 300m (more like 100m in my experience). The lullabys are pointless for us though the temperature gauge is very handy. However, the volume increase button on the parent unit has now broken after 11 months of use, so you can turn it down but not back up again. The parent unit is therefore stuck on the last lowest volume setting (luckily not zero!) but is effectively useless as we can't tune the volume depending on whether we are in the kitchen cooking or sitting in a quieter room. I have asked Amazon what they are prepared to do (it was ordered days more than 1 year ago) and wait with baited breath..... Not great as this was about the most expensive monitor we looked at. We may have just been unlucky but I would expect it to be more durable than this. It has been used carefully and packed in its case when we've travelled with it (on 3 occasions). It's a trip to the shops tomorrow, then, for a new monitor, as we can't do without a fully functioning one. Think carefully before spending so much (comparitively) when there are so many cheaper ones available.

UPDATE

After having a good moan at this monitor above I thought I'd post a belated update. I tried to get a replacement or refund but the retailer, popcorn uk, (bought it through the Amazon marketplace so Amazon directed me to them) were not very helpful, pushing the problem back to me to take up with Philips. Under consumer law your contract is with the seller, not the manufacturer, as first recourse. As we couldn't function without a monitor while this was sent away for repair, I had to buy another.

I received this item 3 weeks ago, I was really excited after reading the good reviews. Then after a day of using it, I noticed the batteries don't last long, it needs daily charging, and on top of that, the maximum volume is really low, I can't hear my baby cry while I am sleeping. And I am lucky if I hear her while I am watching tv.

Now I am looking to purchase an other monitor. It is pretty much a waste.

I love this monitor. It comes with a travel case, which is very useful for us as we do alot of travelling. The only draw back is that the mobile unit battery doesn't last for that long. Other than that, I love it.

I bought this product after our first son was born and was initially pleased with it but after a short duration the parent unit has now stopped working as the wiring from the plug unit has gone. Because the wiring is all sealed it then took a lot of fiddling about and regluing to resolve hence the drop in ratings. I am hoping after the DIY fix that this will continue to work but the issue is that the parent unit does not hold its charge for very long so you have to unplug the charger from upstairs where you would normally have kept the monitor for overnight and move it to downstairs when your child is kipping during the day. Reception works fine and the melodies and lights on the child unit are all nice and effective (dont tend to use them a lot though).

Both units do have plenty of cable to make them convenient to place in the nursery and bedroom and I have never had problems with interference unless you get the parent unit too close to the child unit which is totally normal.

My sister had this monitor for all her three children and now we have taken it over for our baby.
-It still works after 10 years
-the ONLY monitor to work through the concrete density walls of our house.
-We use the inoffensive lullaby's when our baby wakes up and during feeding - five to choose from (but yes, the tunes don't last long but it's not a tinny noise.
-The monitor has a noise gauge so you hear baby cry but not every sniffle or turn which suits.
- The temp gauge shows clearly on the parent unit
-The night light is very faint so this is the only drawback
We like it and we've returned the other all singing, dancing video monitor ones because they didn't match this for range even withIN the house.

I read all the reviews about this monitor before I bought it as it was replacing a Tomy analogue monitor. I was concerned about the battery life as the Tomy had good battery life and almost went for the Tomy digital.
However, I have this one now and these are my plus points which merit the 5 star rating I have given it:
* The parent unit is slinky and small which I can fit into my pocket!
* I read about the belt clip breaking off, ours is still firmly intact
* The coverage in our 1930's house is brilliant and I was worried about what I'd read about not getting a good signal especially as our house has breezeblock seperating walls. But can't complain at all. Even when I have my mobile next to the monitor, it doesn't come through at all. So there is no hiss or static noise at all.
* We haven't had a problem with the range coverage at all, I spent the summer in the garden whilst baby slept upstairs at the front of the house.
* Brilliant for travelling with, nice compact units with no silly aerials to worry about damaging.
* Display covers what I wanted to see - temperature, & if night light is on (although night light is not as bright as it was on the Tomy).
* Talk facility although we don't use this but helpful as intercom to husband!
* I didn't have lullaby feature before and I think this is a plus, especially as I can use this from parent unit. I use this all the time as part of babys bedtime / naptime routine.
* The features you can choose through the menu include sensitivity so you can set how sensitive you want the microphone to be. The lower it is, the more likely you will have the following: unit is completely silent, baby stirs, click! You will hear whatever is happening for period of time before goes silent again.
