    My girlfriend just got the Motorola Video Baby Monitor (http://shop.bigpond.com/Product.asp?...tail&ID=169391) she hasn't used it but she choose it after 'lots' of research.
    I just have the basic no video monitor, but after seeing hers I wish I had a video one. It's great for them as they live in a 3 story house, their bedroom is the top level and bubs is on the ground level.

    I've heard a couple of people say they've got the Motorola. It sounds great and has good reviews.

    I ended up getting the Oricom sc700 and we love it! We wanted the iBaby, but it wasn't released at the time, so the Oricom it was .

    It is annoying how it beeps when you turn it on for both units. That's an issue when you put bubs down, only to realise you forgot to put the video monitor in the room (eg. when on holidays/etc), but the beep is yet to wake her when we do this. The beep on the parent unit is more annoying. Cause I turn the monitor off when I get up overnight to feed bubs, but then when I come back to bed it beeps when I turn it on, so it causes more noise, making it even more likely that my poor dh will wake up. It does also turn the screen on sometimes (most of the time) when I put the parent unit in it's charger (eg. overnight), so it lights up the whole room and transmit noise (eg. noise of the fan in bubs room) which is a little annoying. I'm quite blind (usually wear glasses) so I have to pick up the monitor from it's charging base & put it quite close to my face overnight to see if bubs is actually awake, hence the need to move it on & off it's base.

    But, do I love it? Yes, I do, despite it's faults. Having a video monitor is SO much better than a sound only monitor and has given me a lot more peace of mind, especially as my bub is extremely active and gets all around her cot!

    We don't have baby monitors as such, but in each girls' room there is a camera which we can watch on the iPad, iPhone or computer and also log in remotely! They are awesome! If you want more info, I can get all the details for you tomorrow - think they were about 100 bucks each.

    Got all excited about it, and told DP but he thinks it will be transmitted over a phone or internet connection - is this true?

    Not true, it works through a wifi network in your home, but you can also use 3G to check on baby if you're out and you have a babysitter or something, but it doesn't require Internet, just a wifi network within your home.

    Got a uniden as well. It also has a zoom function, around 10 volume levels and pretty good quality picture. I love mine and paid about $150
