Utter crap

Returned and replaced, both units were faulty. Neither ever fully charged even after 18 hours! The parent unit only charged to 2 bars and would last a whole 20 minutes. I am returning the replacement. It's been about of muck around for something that should have just worked. Having to cart a newborn around to return is very difficult. Avoid at all costs. Show details

Do NOT BUY

My baby is 5 weeks old and this baby monitor is extremely bad. It worked well for 2 days after that screen an noise cuts out. The screen is literally blank. You have to speak into it to get screen to turn back on. Picture quality is really bad. Its definitely not work even $2. Someone's baby could wake up and you wouldn't even know because the baby monitor does NOT WORK AT ALL. Show details

Exactly what I needed

Very satisfied with range
Very satisfied with audio and image
Screen is good, battery is bad
Plug and go kinda set up ao all in all its pretty good.
I was nervous to get a monitor because I've read some news articles but I put myself at ease and just decided to get one because I needed to watch her sleep instead of getting up 5 times during an episode of whatever we were watching. We've had no security breaches and it's very easy and reliable other than the battery life but the house is small so don't need to take it everywhere. If you have separation anxiety then get one! Show details

Exactly what you need to monitor bub

Pros:
- Basically no set up required
- Camera has good range of view
- You CAN change the VOX sensitivity so that noise only comes on when bub makes noise
- You CAN change the screen setting so it either stays on with or without sound or turns off until bub makes a noise
- Charge seems fine - you can definitely have parent unit off charge for several hours
- Video and speaker is clear day and night - I can see bub breathing on the non-zoom view
- parent unit has a stand

Cons:
I can’t say I’ve experienced any issues. Screen is small as per the image of the monitor, camera image isn’t super clear but it’s clear enough that I can see if bub is breathing. Zoom function is pretty basic but it’s a $99 monitor! Show details

Great

Battery on the modem part runs out fast, has to be on charge a lot. But other than that I love it. I use it every night, great picture. adjusts to the lighting very fast. Definitely recommend! Show details

Works better than expected!

Easy to use and great quality, had never used a baby monitor before so was nervous about spending a lot of money on something without knowing how well they work but it's exceeded my expectations and well worth it. Show details

Good value for money

Great price and works pretty good for our small house. Does not do very well for distance and sometimes will loose reception at times. In general though great for the price and would buy again. Show details

Good unit

Just trialed the Vtech BM2700, sound works, camera for both colour and night vision looks good without being exceptional but when paying $74 for the unit I wasn’t expecting CIA type camera tech here.

Keep it basic - if the sound works and the image quality allows you to see what your baby is doing or isn’t that what you need.

No requirement to spend $300plus on 5inch + parent monitors (screens), 1080p video, audio songs blah blah blah you get the drift

4 out of 5 stars it does the fundamental things you need (audio and video)

Battery life is quite short on the parent unit. Show details

Better options out there especially for battery life

Easy to use, average video quality And audio crackly. Night vision better than colour/day and appauling battery life 2.5 hours Max. Wouldn't recommend, better spending a bit more for better battery life. Show details

Love it

Easy to use and set up. Good choice of options/preferences in settings. Battery life and reception was better than expected. Video is slighly grainy but does not affect the visability of baby. Show details

Bad quality

Sound is crackly and camera lags and freezes often
The Battery life sucks

I was expecting better quality...

Easy setup though I suppose,

But I wouldn't recommend to anyone not worth spending the money Show details

Not too bad

Good monitor have never had a problem with it.
One bad thing is the battery doesn’t last long on the parents monitor when not plugged into the wall.
Good sound, alright video quality.
Good distance range aswell. Show details
