Safety 1st Sound View Baby Monitor is a waste of money. They are cheap though and you get what you pay for, in most cases. I learned my lesson very quickly with this product. It was horrible the whole 6 times I was able to use it. All I could hear was static and then the batteries would die CONSTANTLY. Safety 1st Sound View Baby Monitor has horrible sound quality. It's just static most of the time. I have no idea why! It was sitting on a table with nothing else near it. There was nothing to interfere with the signal. The next problem was the batteries dying all the time. I thought there was something wrong with the batteries I put in it so I bought different ones but still had the same problem. I'm pretty sure I spent more on batteries than I did on this product in the first place. After 6 uses the Safety 1st Sound View Baby Monitor died. I thought the batteries had just died again but it just refused to turn back on after I replaced the batteries. We had already ordered a new set of monitors and were waiting on their arrival, luckily. Do NOT buy the Safety 1st Sound View Baby Monitor. It's mostly just static, the batteries die almost instantly, and it only lasted 6 uses!
