Reviews around way (4.64 of 5)

  • And I mean sparks in the middle of the night to get it to lay the right way so it would charge
  • We don’t need (or care to own) a video monitor, so this monitor has been perfect and a reliable way to hear baby when we’re busy around the house
  • only one way to describe this VTech monitor for my use, PERFECT.
  • Works great for the distance I need but unfortunately the volume is so soft, even turned up all the way
  • This is perfect for me and my baby sound quality is great way better than I thought it would be

Reviews around product (4.21 of 5)

  • Great product, long lasting battery and the sound quality is good.
  • Horrible product that looses signal with direct line of sight at 20 feet
  • I almost thought this product was defective because the sensitivity is so adjustable, I just asssumed it wasn’t picking up any noises
  • Such a shame, it looks as a good product but definitely not up to standards
  • Don’t waste your money on other expensive products, I have and this product out performs in the most important attributes, distance and sound sensitivity

Reviews around sound (3.97 of 5)

  • Very poor quality, the sound is poor, one of the chargers is not functioning
  • The sound is clear and I like all the personalized settings.
  • This is the perfect sound monitor no extra white noise and is crystal clear
  • I love the clear sound and how it won't pick up small noises

Reviews around feedback (3.22 of 5)

  • I give this 4 stars with 1 Star lost because of the strange intermittent fuzzy feedback noise
  • If close together they make a loud feedback noise
  • Highly recommend as long as you want a no frills just reliable audio monitor!
  • From the moment I opened it, it had to be always plugged in to work as there is no battery feature (the batteries are defective)
  • We keep it hooked up to the charger throughout the entire night to make sure the battery does not run out and turns it off which keeps it working as we need it to

  • n’t do much with this monitor because the link is in & out then lost sometimes without reason
  • From the moment I opened it, it had to be always plugged in to work as there is no battery feature (the batteries are defective)
  • It works as it is supposed to
  • Loses a star because once the battery died i had to leave it plugged into the wall 24/7
  • I have to add that the three stars is for a safety concern, dragging down the five-star performance

Reviews around volume (2.35 of 5)

  • Works great for the distance I need but unfortunately the volume is so soft, even turned up all the way
  • They pick up sound very well and the volume on the parent unit makes it easy to hear.
  • The highest volume setting is super loud and clear, we use a noise machine and we can hear it through the monitor.
  • Really the only negative is the volume on the monitor end
  • Volume is loud enough and distance was good when working on my landscape outside

Reviews around message (2.33 of 5)

  • The second is that the newest version of this monitor has a really obnoxious message that is played LOUDLY every single time you link the units
  • There is an annoying message that plays when you turn it on about not putting it somewhere unsafe for baby.
  • From the moment I opened it, it had to be always plugged in to work as there is no battery feature (the batteries are defective)
  • Lovely feature when you finally successfully get baby down to sleep, realize in the next room over that you need to link the units only to have the inevitable loud message come on and wake your baby
  • Highly recommend as long as you want a no frills just reliable audio monitor!

Reviews around baby cry (2.33 of 5)

  • The sound even on a 3 or middle setting is more than loud enough to wake us up if the baby cries.

Reviews around video (2.18 of 5)

  • I was skeptical at first because it didn’t have the fancier video feature, but even with my baby being on a different floor of the house, this monitor works great
  • Sound sensitivity: we are first-time parents and like many parenting noobs, purchased an expensive video monitor
  • I bought this low-tech baby monitor - didn't need a fancy video screen, etc.
  • It’s not a video monitor which freak me out post paranormal activity.3
  • We downgraded to this monitor from a super highly reviewed video monitor that was four times the cost because it was impossible to sleep with the baby’s white noise machine transmitting and tinny all night

  • n’t work
  • n’t do much with this monitor because the link is in & out then lost sometimes without reason

Reviews around connection (1.56 of 5)

  • My main issue: it often loses the connection for no reason
  • Over a distance of 40' with three plaster walls in between the two units, a reliable connection was not possible.
  • The baby unit doesn't lose power and the parent unit stayed plugged in, but it loses connection and wakes us up for no reason
  • This is a pretty good audio only monitor for shorter distances, but it can't maintain a reliable connection through more than a wall or two in an older house.
  • The parent unit beeps if it ever loses connection with the baby unit, so you know if anything has happened!

  • sound quality is amazing, no static or background noise

Reviews around beep (1.38 of 5)

  • However, randomly, the parent unit will start its annoying beep and say "not linked" this happens infrequently, but often enough (several times a week) to be super annoying
  • It’s nice that the parent one beeps if the child one is disconnected (aka not on due to device not holding a charge) or you will be woken up by low
  • I’ll turn the sound down because this monitor is always in VOX mode, however if mom starts talking or needs me it will make a loud beep to let me know that something is going on in her room, sound clarity is excellent and if you have a parent that needs looked after- get this- walkie-talkies tend to confuse her with all the buttons plus you also pick up all kinds of outside interference and this really gets her confused
  • Maybe we got a defective one, but ours starts beeping REALLY loud for lengthy periods of time because it’s lost
  • This item replaces lesser model of same brand that had an annoying "beeping" issue.

Reviews around couple (1.00 of 5)

  • My husband has fallen a couple of times and this baby/parent monitor idea was suggested last week by an ER nurse when he had fallen
  • The last time she fell she was screaming for help a couple of hours before I heard her.
  • There seems to be a static interference every couple of minutes while it’s plugged in.4
