What our shoppers say:
Comfortable, not loud, good suction
I researched quite a bit before settling on this model and brand. Out of all the models out there, this is the only one with flexible soft rubber petals for the pumping cups, instead of hard, stiff plastic cups. I appreciate the improved design that prevents milk from getting into the tubes (quite a bit more sanitary and a lot easier to clean). Several different suction levels so you can test and see which level works and feels best to you. Easy to use and the sound isn't too loud. I also prefer pumping into bottles instead of having to purchase pumping bags.\n\nMy only issue with this is yes, you can pump one side at a time but you leave the second hooked up - no way to turn the other side off. I find it difficult to maneuver two pumps at once (and I feel like a cow trying those hands-free pumping bras). ;) personal preference, I am more fond of the single pump version of this model.
This is a nice little baby monitor packed with important features.\nPros\n- Clear sound with no static or buzz (compared to other monitors I've used or tested)\n- Adequate volume - I have read reviews on some other sites that complain about the volume but I can't understand why. I found it good enough even on a middle setting. Perhaps this is a feature that was fixed by Phillips when they got initial feedback\n- Light up feature that alerts you to baby making sound (and the lighting is proportionate to the intensity of the sound). This feature is super handy if you put the handset\/receiver on mute because you are talking on the phone or are watching loud TV on a different level in the house\n- Temperature range - I liked the ability to set a temperature range and be alerted when the temperature went outside the range. I didn't realize just how handy this feature is until I went through a particularly warm evening where I left the window open for light breeze but then the night turned super cold. This is particularly important because your baby does not have the warm protection of blankets (to prevent SIDS) like you do and you may not realize how cold it suddenly is because you just cuddle up in your blanket.\n- Music - This is a nice to have but I find it handy to use it to wind down the baby on nights where she is still super active when i tuck her in for the night. Remote control of this feature would be a great addition!\n- Intercom - I love, love, love, this feature. I usually use it when I need milk for the baby and need by husband to bring it to me. Once I've even used it when I ran out of wipes in the middle of a diaper change and didn't want to leave my baby unattended or re-diaper her while I go pull out a new packet of wipes.\n\nPotential Cons\n- Not really a con but I haven't found a whole lot of use for the humidity sensor. I find it to be pretty constant but perhaps this feature is more useful in parts of the country where temp\/humidity fluctuates a lot

Good value for money
I got this for one my cousin who is a stay at home mom. She uses occasionally to save the milk for later use or in travel. It is very comfortable and gentle. This machine features the cushion which is gentle and at the same time quick to complete the job.
