Overall, it does what is required at a reasonable price.
Like most other baby video monitors out there, this one has pretty much most of the functions you will need (portable parent unit, visual volume indicator, talk back, night vision, wall mount bracket, etc). The price point is better than most other ones currently out there. An additional feature that it has over the older model is the ability to play music and white noise (a choice of 9 to choose from) remotely from the parent unit. The screen size is ok. You don't need to see every little detail. You just need to know the baby is up and moving.... The wireless connection distance between the baby and parent unit is very good. Mine is set up on the opposite corners of the house and is still getting 4 bars of signal. Personally, I think the night vision can be improved a bit more (clear visibility up to about 2m), the volume of the baby unit can be louder (especially when you are told in the instruction not to put the baby unit too close to the baby), and the parent unit screen should light up automatically (mine is set to turn off after 5 minutes to save battery) when it detect large motion or loud crying.
Couldn't fault it - best value for price
Having done a lot of research on baby monitors, and not wanting to spend much on one, I am pleased with my decision to settle with the Vtech BM3300. Couldn't fault it. Clear images, good night-vision, talkback, volume options, great battery life. Is portable and has a long cord (both parent and camera units).
I was worried the screen would be too small (it seemed so compared to other models) but this size is perfect, wouldn't need any bigger.
Best thing is we can add extra cameras (using same parent unit) if needed for more children.

Easy to Use- Good Range
This was a such a simple install...you can wall mount it to look down at your baby or put in on the dresser. It has a great range (15+ Plus), the screen can be turned off, it can play music or you can talk via an intercom system and it has a temperature probe and alarm. You can also add different cameras to the system if you have more than one room.
Highly Recommend...best value for money! Mine cost $149!
Questions & Answers
I purchased a VTech B3300 baby monitor today.
It started up ok but whenever I turn it off it loses its camera signal, even if I just turn off the video and leave the sound on it still loses its video link. The Parent Unit is located no more than 8m from the Camera unit.
It then has dfficulty reconnecting even if I use the pinhole button underneath the camera unit. I am not happy after paying $149 for this item. Is this the best it can do?
After resetting it, it says it connects and is immediately followed by text at the top of the screen saying "No link to Camera". I finally got it to connect and dare not turn off the video or turn it off else I will lose the Camera link.
I got as close as possible to the unit when I reset it. It took a number of tries before it was successful. It would show the tick saying it had connected but then would lose the connection. It was not near any other electrical appliances. I even changed the camera number to try to get it to re-synchronise with camera channel number 2 for example. Once it is connected do NOT ever turn it off or else it will have great trouble reconnecting. I would NOT recommend this item to anyone, ever.
Is there any way you can put parent unit on sleep mode or change sensitivity? At the moment can only turn picture off.. not the sound. End up hearing white noise all the time - very frustrating. Very ready to just buy something else.
