We say: This offers excellent control of the camera via the hand-held parent unit. It has a large colour screen and good sound quality and visibility, with infrared night vision. A alert sounds when the battery runs low or if you're out of range. It also has two-way talkback, a thermometer and a lullaby mode.

Tested by mum Christina and Ethan, 9 weeks: 

Quick and easy to set up. I love the large screen on the parent unit and the really clear picture. A great feature is the option to set it to vibrate rather than sound - with two children, I don't want to risk waking one up every time the monitor goes off. This has great extras such as the two-way communication and thermometer. The lullabies are lovely too.

Tested by mum Felicity and Aphra, 8 months: 

A brilliant, reliable monitor - this is our favourite by far. The camera is bulky compared to others, but we love the colour monitor and that you can pan and tilt the camera via the parent monitor. The wall mount is useful, as you can choose the ideal position. The parent unit charges in around three hours, which is great if you forget to do it overnight. It's pretty perfect.

Tested by mum Lindsey and Aaliyah, 11 months: 

This has easy-to-follow instructions. The picture is a little grainy and the night mode isn't very clear, but the screen size is a good size. I like the extra features like the vibration on the parent unit to alert you to temperature changes or loss of connection. The optional sleep mode is noise-activated, so when Aaliyah makes a sound it comes on, but it's easy to turn off.
