Digital Transmission Produces Choppy Video

We’ve been using the 900 MHz analog Summer monitors for about five years with pretty good success, so I was looking forward to checking out this new generation. While moving from analog to digital signal introduces some new functionality, it takes a big step backward in one important aspect: smoothness of the video feed.
With the 900 MHz analog system, watching our child was like watching television. You could pick up on the subtlety of movement. In our case, this is very important, as our son has seizures. With this digital system, however, it was more like watching a webcam over the Internet, even though the signal isn’t leaving your house. The motion was like a silent movie. It looked like 15 fps compared to the analog system’s 30 fps.
The speaker on the monitor was also very weak. It was very hard to hear what was coming across, especially compared to the very loud and clear analog system.
Being able to use the remote displays on battery was a nice feature, although the batteries seem to go dead weather you are using them or not.
The new on-screen display of signal strength was pointless.
I tested both the Wide View and In View systems, and didn’t feel the Wide View was worth the extra cost. Yes, it was a wide view, but because it was showing a wider area, it showed less detail. I was also underwhelmed by the digital zoom (as I’ve usually been by digital zoom on almost any camera).
For my purposes, and compared to the earlier generation, I feel this product rates about two stars. However, I’m giving it three, since it seems to function as designed. That said, I find it to be a very flawed design.

Really disappointed in the video quality

Really disappointed in the video quality. More upset I paid 150 for it at target. Will be returning it. I had a Samsung one, smaller screen but had a wayyyyyy better picture. I will be going back to that one, the small screen won’t kill me. But the inability to see my son might!

Horrible video quality
By Renata Berni on June 22, 2014

I am very disappointed with this purchase. I absolutely love technology and did so much research on what baby monitor to get. I wanted a big screen and good quality. But the quality is SO poor I might have a broken model. Nowadays you can buy a cheap webcam anywhere and the video quality is amazing. I can’t understand why a baby monitor this expensive would have such poor video quality. The color is totally off… It has this blue and pink tint everywhere. I haven’t tried using it at night yet but the first time I turned the lights off.. Everything got really dark.
