The monitor unit itself is akin to the size of a large mobile phone and surprisingly light, so can be carried around ina pocket or whatever quite easily. The battery life, when fully charged and not connected to the mains, will honestly last for hours and hours... i forget how long, as i didn't time it, but I tested it when first bought and made sure my first charge went from full to empty and I could not believe how long it lasted with both sound and picture - I'm fairly certain it was over 10 hours.
The picture is as good as you would want, or you could reasonably expect in a 2 inch or so screen - any better resolution would be a waste. Really nice how the unit converts to a black and white (also clear) infra-red image in low/no light conditions - i really didn't feel they made enough of this in the literature as I deliberately didn't want one of those units with leds that try to light up the dark room sufficiently to get a good picture. So this one has a great picture provided from a pitch black room, should you want it that way.
Sound is fine, nothing to report there.
The only extra feature that i thought could have improved it would have been display of the temperature in the camera room - but not a great worry as this 'does what it says on the tin' better than you would expect. They should blow their trumpet a little harder!
So in summary, I could not recommend this little piece of kit enough.
***** UPDATE Feb 2013 - bought a second unit for a second child - we wanted a backup in case the old one failed / plus we still use the old one to keep an eye on our first, now a toddler. The new one isn't as good as the one I reviewed above.Read more ›
The compact and secure monitor has been fantastic. The quality of the sound and picture is excellent, even in a room with blackout blinds and next to the wifi router. Its really easy to plug in and use straight away, compact enough to take to friends/family for evenings out/overnight stays and the battery life seems to last longer than the stated 10 hours!
Summer uk after sales have also been very helpful and I'm planning to purchase some additional cameras for our newborn and playroom.
1. Interference with Wi-Fi. Although the monitor claims not to interfere with Wi-Fi and many people have said there's was fine - ours was not! Every night when both my sister and I would switch on the monitors, our laptops would not work over Wi-Fi. When we switched them off, the Wi-Fi would come back. My husband is a programmer and tried to re-route them over a different frequency, but to no avail. In the end, we bought a more expensive router which works on a different frequency and all was resolved!
2. The screen has broken on both my sister's monitor, and more recently, mine. Two months ago, the screen on my sister's monitor went completely white with no picture. After 11.5 months, mine has done the same (the sound still works).
Thankfully, both were still under warrantee and Summer Infant have been great at replacing them.
I like the concept of a digital video baby monitor, but would look for an alternative brand in future.
Not a problem, because it was quickly replaced. Excellent - right? No - wrong! Because soon after that the sound went on the new monitor. It just sounded like LOUD white noise! We couldn't even have the volume on at all because all you would hear was "chhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh (WHITE NOISE)!"
Not a problem, because it was quickly replaced. Excellent - right? NO - wrong again! Because soon after (it's starting to feel like Groundhog Day...) the plug on the adapter went.
Before AMAZON could send me a replacement, I said, enough is enough! I'm either very unlucky or this is an inferior product (come to think of it, I have never won the lottery...hmmmm)!
We thought about getting the other all singing, all dancing model - the Summer Infant Baby Touch Digital Video Monitor, but thought that trying a different brand would be best. We ended up getting the Motorola MBP36 Digital Video Monitor, which we LOVE and have had NO problems with.
The Motorola has a better monitor, which is also bigger. I can see my daughter blinking because the screen is so clear. The option to move the camera around is brilliant. This allows me to watch her play in her room, which means I get more use out of it. There are a lot more features, but ignoring them the camera, screen and reliability are way superior!
