I purchased this swing after conducting an exhaustive web search before my baby was even born. I was somewhat concerned by the reviews reporting motor problems, however, this swing seemed to have the best quality/value ratio among those with the plug-in feature, so I finally decided to take the risk.
The swing arrived promptly and was easy to set up. When my baby arrived, she started enjoying the swing since she was 2 weeks old. She'd stop crying in it right away and fall asleep. This swing saved me from going crazy when she did not sleep at night, usually all I had to do is put her there and she'd be asleep for several hours. She is now almost a year old and still loves to nap in it. She sleeps so soundly that it still amazes me:)
Now, about the swing itself. My baby is now almost 25 pounds and the motor is going STRONG with her weight (I now use the second fastest speed, not even the fastest one). I never had a problem. I always used the plug in feature which I LOVE! Saved me tons of money. The cover is very easy to remove, mashine wash and put back, literally takes only 2 minutes. It is also stable and good looking, nice for the baby. It does take some space, though, maybe not more than any model of a similar size.
The swing does have one minor drawback which I want to mention. Something went wrong with the music almost immediately (after maybe a week or two of use), it has been sounding weird since than, but it does not seem to influence the baby. I could have returned it, but the swing was so helpful that I have been careless about it.
I have heard that some babies do not care about swings - cannot comment on that, but mine loves it.
To sum it up, overall it is an AMAZING product, extremely helpful. I highly recommend it to new parents since their baby is a newborn, and I highly recommend this one over the more expensive ones. I myself consider it to be one of the most valuable purchases I have made for the baby.
