So, when our cheap monitors took it upon themselves to be lazy and stop doing the ONE JOB they had, we had to go out and find ourselves a new set. These had excellent reviews and for the price it wasn't a bad idea. After welcoming them into our home and utilizing them we deemed we had made a great purchase and left it at that. This brings me to here, 3:17AM. Why am I writing a review at such a ghastly hour?! You may ask, and I will tell you why. Picture this. You lay peacefully down for the night and click on the monitor so you can be sure to hear your little angel(s) in the off chance they decide that they no longer need to sleep at 2AM. You drift off into blissful sleep (when you're a parent, any amount of time asleep is blissful, trust me). All is well. A shirtless Channing Tatum is about to propose (or a bikini clad Megan Fox for those preferring the opposite), and when they're just about to ask "will you marr-BEEP BEEP BEEP". At first you just stir and think it was just a freak interruption to your marriage proposal, until "will you marry m-BEEP BEEP BEEP". This time you relentlessly awaking and in your daze of sleep and sadness that your dream was rudely interrupted, come to find that it was not your child(ten) with a 3AM wake up call, oh no, it was this monitor! Letting you know that "hey! Uh, you forgot to charge me so, I'M GOING TO DIE AND YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO HEAR YOUR PRECIOUS BABIES!!". So you fumble for the plug in the dark and manage to find the outlet to make the incessant beeping cease. Yeah, I didn't mention that EVEN THOUGH it's to alert you its battery is DYING this infernal monitor will continue to beep for HOURS. How do I know? Oh because when it decided to wake me up at 1AM because of said issue, and I left the one unit downstairs as I always do, I decided "hey, it'll die and stop beeping at some point, it has to!", and didn't turn it off, it's now nearly 3:30AM and the blasted thing is STILL BEEPING letting me know that it's DYING. All in all this is a great monitor and does what it's supposed to. Take my advice, if you're going to have this contraption right next to your head for the night, just keep it plugged in regardless of battery life. It's the only way I've been able to avoid the dreaded, Channing dream disrupting, BEEP BEEP BEEP!
