Video Monitors - The Colony,TX
I am a SAHM of a 2.5 yo boy. We have had a video monitor for my son since he was about 2 years old. We are pregnant with our 2nd child and wanting to get another video monitor for the new baby.
We borrowed a Summer infant video monitor from a friend and it has worked pretty well, although when I borrowed it, the sound part didn't work and has a lot of static. We have to supplement the video monitor with an audio monitor and turn down the sound on the video monitor.
Any good recs on video monitors with nice sound quality and low interference on the video part?

So What Happened?™
I went out & bought the Summer Best View today. It has a 2.5" LCD screen, is 100% digital (no interference), and has a color screen. So far the sound is great and the picture on the screen is VERY clear! I would highly recommend this monitor for the $$. It was a little pricier than some of the others out there, but I have an older version of the Summer Video and this one is 3x better.
Plus, the Best View has a pan mode so you don't have to go adjust the camera in case your baby/toddler moves on you.
LOVE it! Thanks for the recs ladies!

We have the summer handheld. It has a switch on the side for channel A and channel B. We have a camera in each of our boys' rooms so we can just flip the channel switch to whomever we want to see. I love it!!!

I had summer Infant for my two children, I just agev birth to my 3rd child and needed a new one, I purchased the new summer Infant model with the tv monitor (not hand held) love it!!! Would be lost without it!! It works great!! Plus I had coupons for Babies R Us and and paid $60 when it was originally $99.

I am in the same boat,
i just bought the summer Best View ( i had an older summer for my son)
My friend has tried every video monitor out there and swears by this one. It has zoom on it,
Hopefully she is right!!!

I had the Summer one too and I liked it. I think as they get older & used, the controls get a little funky. Aren't video monitors great? I loved mine.
