The battery life is not great. The night light is not bright enough.

General Comments
We have had this for 3 years now and have found it to be a brilliant monitor. The sound reception is perfect-and (I find this amazing!) it picks up all the baby noises but seems not to pick up other sounds. What I mean is, you hear all cries and when the volume is up (and you hold it to your ear!) you can hear breathing, but when we play music in the room that hardly comes through!
I love the fact it has a temperature display that can be seen on the parent unit and that you can set an audible warning to go off if it excedes or drops below a set (you pick) temperature. Although most of the year the temperature is pretty predictable in the height of summer or depth of winter it is really reassuring to know that even if it gets really hot of cold in the night whilst you are asleep your monitor will wake you to let you know.
The light is not bright enough to be of any use. The music is OK. The 2 way monitor has always been more use for mum and dad to pass messages to each other (ie "please bring a dummy up"!) rather than to soothe the child. Actually in our experience, our children have found hearing our voice without seeing us more scary than reassuring!
Also worth mentioning that the rechargable battery has a short life. We charge our monitor for 19 hours a day-and have it away from the base 5 hours a day, and within a few hours it is beeping at us that the battery is low (although you can turn this beeping off). However, we have owned it 3 years and it probably needs a new battery-and I really don't hold this against it.
All in all it is great-it looks sleek, has great features and the sound is wonderful and that is the main thing.
