My husband and I used this monitor for the first year and it worked very well. It's a very simple monitor and without a lot of frills, which was exactly what we wanted so that we didn't have to fiddle with buttons in the middle of the night. It transmitted sounds from our baby's room clearly and without interference from our neighbors' houses. We could easily hear him breathing and rustling around at night, which made us feel at ease when he started sleeping in his crib. Because it is such a small monitor, we could easily hang the monitor on the outside of the crib and not worry about it getting knocked over or getting in his way when he was sleeping at night. Also, it transmitted well throughout our house and even from our garage. We used the monitor for when he would fall asleep in his car seat when we were driving home and we didn't want to disturb him by transferring him into the house. So we would put the monitor in the car next to him and we would listen for when he woke up. Interference We only had one incidence of interference from our neighbors in the year that we used the monitor. Portability Very lightweight and small. You can easily pack the monitor into a suitcase or backpack and wanted to use the monitor while on vacation.
