Quoting LolaMcKitten:" I use baby monitors at work all the time and if your going to spend money on a monitor, definitely get ... [snip!] ... (non video) monitor and it was amazing - I can imagine the same can be said for a video monitor - you get what you pay for. "
That's kind of what I figured, also. I mean, I don't want to just buy one because it's cheap, but I have also seen reviews on some of the more expensive video monitors saying that they just stopped working, sound was eliminated when an extra camera was added, etc. To me, I can't justify spending $300 on a video monitor if it has mediocre or bad reviews, but I also have to stop and think that the people writing these reviews may not be telling the whole story (maybe they dropped the monitor, maybe it fell in some water, etc.). I think I am definitely going to add one to my registry and after the baby shower, if it hasn't already been bought by somebody else, I will buy one. Maybe I'll just save a little extra money to purchase one of the more high quality monitors.
