If you are currently in the market for a new baby monitor, or if you know someone who is, then I'd like to introduce you to the VM333 from VTech. We've been testing it out for close to a week, now, and after clearing a few hurdles with the new equipment, I can now say that we are very impressed with its capabilities!
The VM333 has replaced our other video monitor for a few key reasons.
1. range of motion. This camera has a ful range of motion, whereas our other monitor couldn't move its camera at all. We can look at the baby from different angles if we need to, or even zoom in, all without setting foot inside her room.
2. high video resolution. What good is a video monitor if the picture it gives you is always really grainy? That's not the case with this monitor, which provides significantly clearer images, as well as color instead of just black and white. I have a little tummy sleeper, so I really appreciate being able to get a closer look at her to make sure she's positioned safely. It also has a 2.8 inch screen, which is significantly larger than our old unit.
3. sound quality. This system is VERY sensitive to sound, and at first, this was actually quite troubling to me. You can have your monitor make a beeping noise on the observation end of the system whenever noise levels reach a certain place in the baby's room. I had to quickly change that feature, as it was driving me absolutely nuts. But I can also see how that is an excellent feature for anyone who is a really deep sleeper and has trouble waking up in the middle of the night, even if there is a crying baby in the next room. The monitor does provide crisp sound so that I can tell exactly when it is time to go in and get Layah (it isn't always the second she makes a peep, as she sometimes puts herself back to sleep!).
4. mountability. You can mount the unit to the wall. We've always had to have a tall-ish piece of furniture within a certain distance of the crib to set the monitor on, and that's no longer an issue.
The VM333 from VTech's Safe & Sound series is the best baby monitoring system I have ever personally experienced, by far. It would make for an awesome baby gift for new parents.
