I just didn't quite take to this monitor, despite the fact that it was very nicely packaged. Out of the box, it just felt a little plasticky, making me feel that the monitor would only survive being dropped if you were lucky, which isn't ideal considering that you're probably going to be carrying it around with you regurlarly. I also didn't like the slightly awkward positioning of the on/off switch tucked down on the side of the monitor. When the charging wire is in, I could hardly get at the switch, and even when the wire's out it's not the best positioning for an on/off switch considering it will probably be used all the time. A strange choice from Samsung which I was already becoming irritated by on the first use (why not just stick a button right in the middle of the thing?).
Now don't get me wrong, the picture quality is great and it's easy enough to point the camera in whichever direction you wish, and that is, of course, ultimately what you buy it for. So, if all it's going to be used for is light security work, it's still a recommendable product. As far as baby monitors are concerned though, I preferred the Philips Avent SCD600/00. Although it's a little more expensive, it's chunkier (in a good way, more robust), user-friendly to the point of being child's play, and, quite simply, a more satisfying item than this one by Samsung. The Motorola ones also seem to be pulling in good reviews too, so I think parents would be well advised to check out these alternatives.
