Picked one of these up from Asda Store for £40 (less my 10% discount making it £36). They are £70 everywhere else. Will give a quick review after using it for a few days, hopefully it'll be on the front page by then :-)

As always please can you justify a cold vote, cheers

maybe not but if you are having breakfast before your little one wakes up and you suddenly hear voices of two men arguing who will win the FA cup or some such, because your neighbour has forgotten to turn theirs off, it can be very disturbing! :-D Our first monitor used to pick up the local taxi office, I nearly died everytime a mans voice came through the monitor, thought we were being broken into!

haha! ok.. i guess you have a point... i have a dect telephone.. does that mean i could add these to it? dect AFAIK allows any makes of phones to connect... it would be fun!

ps are they still available in costco? is this one a really good deal? like is the spec good for the price? my sister is expecting so i want to get her some stuff!

We have one of these, RRP at the time was £120 (although we paid about half that).

It's a good monitor - we have this and a Tomy Dect Platinum. They each have their pros and cons. At this price it'd be rude not to buy a spare .... oh, and the batteries on this model can last up to 3 days in my tests :)

looks like a good one. but, when my 1st baby came home (was 5 last month) I bought a tv monitor, scart into the tv and it was great.
meant i could leave him playing in his cot in the morning and didnt need to worry about him.

its like, oh! wonder if the baby is ok, you peek your head over the cot and the baby is like - MUM,MUM
I found the tv monitor one invaluable..
and I think I only paid about £50 for it! it was my best purchase.

and afterwards they say put it in the play room or pointing at the garden!

these things have come on a long way since I bought one but, the basic one I had was great and no interference as it was a wire connection.

Does dect really allow you to connect to other phones? I'll have to look that one up, if so when buying cordless phones you don't have to get the same brand and model.

Voted hot, because this is definitly a great price.

There are 2 customer reviews that arent that good on amazon: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Philips-AVENT-SCD499-Monitor-Travel/dp/customer-reviews/B000VLPWBU/ref=dp_top_cm_cr_acr_txt?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=1&customer-reviews.start=1&qid=1208851325&sr=1-8#customerReviews

Just to keep the picture balanced :-), although the model on Amazon is one number up SCD499

A DECT device is the last thing I'd want near my baby (if I had one). They use technology similar to mobile phones, though apparently it's often even worse than mobiles as it's a constant higher power output.

Just thought I should mention that, what with the pretty common advice not to let kids use mobiles, let alone babies...
#13
I cant find it anywhere on the website???? Anyone got a direct link. Also what is the 10% code?
TIA

It looks like they are ok to use at distances of more than 10ft.

OK, so keep DECT phones out of homes with babies??

Anyone seen any deals on these then?
