Looks decent enough for that price

still seems quite pricey to me, you don't really need these fancy ones. Anyone got a recommendation for something cheaper but still good without bells & whistles>

CHILDREN may be at risk of cancer from digital baby monitors, parents have been warned.

The cordless gadgets, which allow babies' breathing patterns to be checked from another room, emit potentially dangerous radio waves even when not in use.

Consumer group Powerwatch warned parents against using them after research suggested the technology increased the risk of brain tumours.

There are also fears it is linked with leukaemia, breast cancer, headaches and disturbed behaviour patterns in children.

Digitally enhanced cordless technology is becoming more popular in baby monitors. But Powerwatch founder, Alasdair Philips, said: 'This technology poses a risk to everyone, but babies in particular should not be exposed to it at all.

'Babies are more likely to be effected because their cells are rapidly dividing as they grow and can be more easily damaged."



Best to stick to analogue apparently.... You can take them back (to Argos) if the signal's bad.

Easy to use, entry level analogue nursery monitor - ideal for flats or small houses.
Plugs into any 13 amp socket around the home.
Volume control on the parent's unit has a pre-set minimum to ensure it is never accidentally turned down too low.

Please note this comes with NO bells or whistles! :wink:

not keen on that one, it uses powerline technology, and I might yet get powerline networking, I'm guessing they would not coexist in the same house....

yeah, but I want it to work too

Looked at quite a few reviews for these things, and most seemed pretty bad, perhaps I'll see if Which? has a report.

i have used this model before the dect sound is clear no interfernce etc, ie from mobile phones etc

also remember with a place like argos you could always buy it and take it back if it wasnt for your liking.

This was voted Which? Baby Monitor of the year 2006. I bought this for £75 last year from somehere else but would still recommend it. My only niggle is that the dispaly light doesnt always stay on (as shown in the pics) and cuts out after a few minutes. This can make reading the temperature reading a bit difficult as you need to bring the monitor in closer. The night light and the 2 way speakers are good though. Sound is excellent.

not sure really, I think you can get a bit over-paranoid with these things. I have a big healthy baby and I just don't think it's worth fretting too much.

That said we'd like one, because we can't hear her crying when she's upstairs and we're watching TV downstairs.
