I bought the Motorola MBP36X expecting it to be just as annoying to setup as my previous monitors. The thought of this made me not open the box until I really needed it. I put my son (just 2 days old) in his cot and went downstairs to set it up, giving myself half hour to both get stressed with it and fix it.
I was wonderfully surprised. It comes with two parts. The camera (monitor) and the parent unit (for monitoring!) - Both had their own plugs. I thought, ok, let's see how hard it is going to be o make them talk to each other. I plugged in the parent unit next to my computer where I wanted to be sat for the next few hours. It immediately turned on and started beeping that there was no camera for it to talk to.
I went upstairs and plugged in the camera and realised that the beeping had stopped. Wait? What - no pairing required?! I went back down and I could see his bed in the screen! A few quick clicks of the arrow and there he was. I could hear him, I could see him on the lovely XL screen.
The little stand made it possible for me to work without keeping my eyes off him.
Downsides - some parents may want a portable parent unit. For me this is great as I'm a working mum and will be at my computer whenever he's sleeping. I'm thrilled with it. It's just fab.
Now for the boring bits:
