    Excellent monitor for the money but not the best Summer model, May 12, 2014
    By 

    This assess is from: Summer Infant Wide View Digital Color Record Monitor (Baby Product)
    UPDATE: 09-15-2014

    We are still using this monitor in my now 20 month ancient’s room. The battery life has deteriorated quite a bit. Before I could only have it unplugged 4-5 hours before it died. Now during nap time it’s been unplugged about an hour and the battery life is already at the half way mark. I never leave the screen on more than a second, just to peak and see if he’s still asleep, then I turn it off.

    That’s another thing that’s grown to bother me if you check on them and don’t turn the screen on it takes 3.5 minutes (timed it) for it to turn off itself. That’s WAY too long and it drains the already poor battery life down more than it must. No reason for it to stay on longer than a minute and even then that is pretty long.

    The indicate. I’ve noticed in the last two months or so the signal cuts out completely. I’m not sure why it does it could be our household or the houses around us. It cuts out for a few minutes then cuts back on. Not a huge deal for me now because he’s older but I’d be freaked out if it were a groundbreaking new baby.

    Digital Zoom: I never use this figure. If you house the monitor well you won’t need to. It takes an already really poor picture and makes worse.

    One pro is the intercom figure. It’s SO nice having it I can tell him to lay back down. During the day when my oldest is upstairs playing I can use it to get his attention. Pretty awesome figure.

    The build of the camera has held up quite nicely. The back kick stand isn’t worn out, I was worried it would be since you can place it at any angle and not a fixed angle. Feels groundbreaking new.

    ORIGINAL

    I have been buying Summer monitors for years. This is our third one. The first two models were the Infant Day and Night, which to me is the best one ever made.

    Pros:

    Huge screen. Really really nice figure here. I’ve got poor vision and can see this without having to sit up and place my glasses on. It’s very nice.

    The brightness has 5 settings which allows you to adjust it to your preferences easily on the side.

    Volume. The buck setting is silent everywhere there is very small white noise, unless you run a fan or music, it’s not loud. When the baby cries you do hear it very easily even on the buck setting.

    There is a bar that lights up as well when there is any noise detected.

    Cords. Very long cords. I have it plugged in on a different wall and hung above our son’s crib (he can’t reach the wire) and it reaches reaaally far. Very huge pro.

    Microphone that allows me to talk over the camera to my son. Excellent figure for older kids but it scares my younger one, keep that in mind.

    Cons:

    Battery life. The battery life is CRAP. I can maybe get 4-5 hours of battery at one time. DO NOT leave this unplugged over night in the morning it will be dead. I don’t even leave the screen on for more than a second to check him at night. The screen also stays on for a minute or so as a replacement for of a shorter period of time. It’s not a terrible thing because I leave mine plugged in all night anyhow but I know some people don’t and this could be a major issue for them. Keep it plugged in at night.

    Screen quality. While the screen is nice and huge the quality of the picture is poor. I was surprised at how terrible it was. It’s very pixelated and lacks any sort of fluidity. I would go to say it’s worse than web cam quality, from ten years ago. Not excellent.

    We went from a model that I could easily see if our son’s eyes were open and blinking it was so clear to this everywhere the pixels jumping around it makes my youngest’s eyes seem like they are open and they aren’t. I even sent Summer’s Customer service an email and they replaced my first model with another but it didn’t help. We reckon it may have something to do with the digital zoom.

    Digital zoom is unquestionably pointless with the poor record quality. It’s like trying to zoom in on a 100X100 jpeg.

    We still use the monitor so obviously my complaints aren’t enough to make me go back out and shop around. For our price range it’s not a terrible thing if you don’t care about the small things. I like the huge screen enough that I’m okay with the poor record quality.

    I will say battery life is a larger issue than the record quality. I’m really surprised it doesn’t last longer. I feel like they dropped the ball with these two things huge time. This monitor has a ton of potential. If they ditched the digital zoom and place a better battery in it I would give it 6 stars.

    Better record than the Motorola MBP36, June 10, 2014

    I like this baby monitor. I can compare this one to the Motorola MBP36 and I like this one better because the record quality is so much better on this one. I thought the MBP36 was excellent until I got this one, then it was unquestionably no contest. In fact, I wish I could return the MBP36. The MBP36 is excellent because you can pan the camera remotely using the controls on the monitor and I like that the buttons on the monitor is on the face and not on the edges because that makes it so you are not constantly accidentally approaching buttons when you’re carrying it, but that’s it. In record quality, this one wins hands down and since that’s the most vital part – I prefer this one. The wide angle is nice because you can see a greater area, but then you’re not getting a close up. There’s a zoom figure which kind of makes up for it but if you are only using this to point into one specific area and want to see like your baby breathing – you may want to get the non-wide angle version of this baby monitor. This one is fantastic if you want to monitor the whole crib or a whole room. If your baby is very mobile, this would be your best scale. The camera is static (doesn’t pan), but you won’t need it to because you can set it up so it shows you the whole room at once.

    What could be improved:
    1. Battery life of the monitor – it only lasts a few hours of continuous use. The charger does have an extra long cable, but it would be nice if the battery life was better.
    2. The buttons are all along the edges of the monitor – this is nice because you get a very nice huge viewing screen, but not so nice because you’re constantly accidentally hitting buttons on the thing when you’re carring it around.
    3. Picture quality – Yes, it’s much better record quality than the Motorola MBP36 and it’s excellent enough that you can easily see your baby breathing, but it could always be better….if we’re being greedy.

    What is fantastic:
    1. Fantastic wide screen so you can see an entire room in one shot. You don’t need it to pan. Screen size is larger and better than the MBP36
    2. Fantastic record quality – you can easily watch your baby breathing
    3. Fantastic night vision – you can easily watch baby breathing
    4. Very reliable
    5. Exceptional portability – I have a 1500 sq ft household on a half acre lot and I’m able to monitor the baby from pretty much my entire property. So everywhere in the household and out in the yard as well. Exceptional. It beats the Motorola MBP36 in this area as well.
    6. Has an internal antenna which is way nicer than the externa antenna of the Motorola MBP36 – while still having better connection.
    7. The stand is better and sturdier on the monitor than the MBP36
    8. Pretty much everything you need to monitor your baby.
    9. The monitor and camera can be closer together before you get feedback – basically, just as long as they are at least 2 feet apart, you won’t have feedback issues. Not like the MBP36 which gets feedback if they are in the same room. This is especially vital if you’re trying to adjust the placement of the camera while looking at the monitor. Or – if you rig this up in your car to use as a car baby monitor (which I did). I would recommend using the non-wide screen version if using in the car, but this one would work as well. I like using this in the car because 1. It’s way better than trying to rig up a bunch of mirrors to monitor my baby in her rear facing car seat. 2. You can’t see the baby with mirrors if driving at night – but you can with this monitor because of the night vision. 3. With the zoom figure, you can easily see baby breathing in her car seat – this is especially vital with the rise in incidents everywhere babies stop breathing in their car seats. I am able to drive with confidence and not have to worry because I can really see her face and chest and know everything is okay. I have the monitor mounted on my dash with a GPS monitor that accepts a 5″ screen.
    10. Durability – I’ve been using this in all different capacities, every day for the past 2 months and it’s been going strong. I’ve dropped the monitor a few times and it’s gotten scuffed on the edges, but still working fantastic.

    Fantastic product that I use on a daily basis and am extremely pleased with.

    Snap, Crackle and Pop (United States) –

    I’ve had excellent luck with the Summer Infant Monitors we’ve owned so far. One in particular was something we used for years, but we traveled with it and it eventually stopped working.

    So I’m fortunately inclined toward Summer Infant monitors, but this Wide View monitor one puzzles me, for two reasons:

    BIG SCREEN: I’m not sure what the advantage of the large screen is. You don’t really get a high resolution image in any night vision camera, and night vision is by far what baby monitors are used for. And you don’t need high resolution – it’s more about things like are they awake or asleep, laying down or sitting or standing. If the child is looking at the camera (and they do), you’ll be able to tell with any monitor if their eyes are open from the night vision explanation, a sort of raccoon-at-night effect.

    The negatives of the huge screen, of course, are larger size and shorter battery life. And cost, or losing other features to allow for the huge screen.

    WIDE ANGLE CAMERA: If you have an exceptionally small space to work with, the wide angle camera may help you capture the view you need. But I’ve never found the angle of view of the other monitors we’ve had to be a problem. And if I had to choose between wide angle and panning, I’d choose panning.

    NO PAN: With infants, the skill to pan (go everywhere the camera is focused) may not be necessary. But with children older than that, we’ve often found it useful. Kids go around in their crib or bed. We’ve also found it useful for checking on the kids playing in the bedroom once in a while. And of course, if you have two kids in one room pan can be useful (if you don’t want to buy 2 cameras – with older kids, it’s not really necessary, when you’re just doing occasional checks).

    Bottom line – the features on this monitor may be a excellent contest for a few parents, but most people may want to consider a monitor with a smaller screen, and with the skill to pan and zoom.

    Most monitors have the skill to zoom; check to be sure the one you get does. Usually it’s digital zoom, which is typically at a low resolution, but that works fine for us.

    Finally, I wish baby monitors would use a frequency other than 2.4 ghz – it’s very crowded with WiFi signals for many people.
