I had never had a baby video monitor before and never really saw a need for one. I actually only purchased it because it was such a great deal (you would not believe me if I told you.) Actually because of the price I paid I was expecting a product that a company was trying to unload, but I figured I was not out much so why not. I have a 19 month old who I know is not sleeping when he should, but I do not want to sneak in his room and risk him actually being a sleep and me waking him up. This was the perfect solution! Now I can sneak and peek and see him stirring and lay him back down before all playing chaos happens and nap time is gone. I was really surprised by the picture quality. It is clearer than I expected and even at night I can see all that goes on...like magic. It also has a nice little feature that shows the temperature which is really nice. The only thing that I would say is a downside is that the battery does not last too long if the screen is left going (there is an option to turn the picture off.) It does plug in which is really nice. Honestly, I wish I would have got this a long time ago. Love it!
