I have the oricom sc710 which is a video monitor and never had an issue with it over the past 14 months or so. I initially bought a vtech monitor and it was useless. I wanted to steer away from anything that required my phone as then I'd need my phone on me always charged etc so I'm happy with the monitor and handset option.

There's an app that you can use. Put one phone or iPad in the baby room and another with you. Runs over your wifi or you can use it via 3G if out of wifi area. It's called Cloud Baby Monitor. I use it now as my Oricom blew up.
My Oricom was very good but I accidentally plugged the wrong cord into and it started smoking. So it was user error, not the machine.

I have the Angelcare AC1100, video, sound and movement monitor. I love it!
I have had a few Mums comment on how they wish they had my monitor after seeing it.
I personally would stay away from the app/wifi monitors as they are easily hacked.

I would recommend one with a movement/breathing sensor to reduce the risk of SIDS

I actually ran two, one was an angelcare sound and movement one which had great range and let me know if they stopped breathing, the other was a uniden video monitor so I could spy. This was a few years ago when you couldn't get them all in knec
