my SCD510 works ok the only issue im having is that the parent unit , even after being on highest volume, cannot be heard. its right beside me when im watching tv but i cant hear the baby. Unlike other monitors the slightest movement is detected and heard.
The sensitivity is on its highest and the volume on both units is highest...
what could be the problem?

My 2-1/2 year old flushed the receiver! The next morning we heard it beeping (low battery) inside the toilet. Plumber came and removed toilet to get it out from underneath. Despite 18 hours or so stuck in the toilet trap in water, the unit still works fine! That's impressive.

Rated 1 out of 5 by cboo Broke after 15 months
Worked fine until it stopped working all together for no reason. Everything shows its working but no sound. It will cut in for seconds at a time but thats it. Will not be buying another philips to replace it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JoshIS A solid baby monitor
This baby monitor is simple, but effective. Besides having +/- for volume (which I think every baby monitor has), you can increase the sound sensitivity and also talk to your baby through the parent unit. No glitz or glam on this model -- for example, there is no video -- but it is a solid product, and one that I would recommend to all parents of infants.

Rated 2 out of 5 by T1234 Great monitor until it broke
This monitor was absolutely great until it broke. We originally bought another brand, but returned it almost immediately because there was so much static. We are light sleepers and even though reviews on the other said that it was quiet, we could not sleep at all with it. I only tell you this because I think it is important that you realize that we did our research and for light sleepers, this really is a great monitor. We bought this one next and there is virtually no static. It can catch all noise your baby makes if you have the sensitivity up high or just the important noises (not all the little grunts and movement) if you set it lower -- this is our preference. I love the design and the battery lasts a long time so you can take it around during the day and only need to leave it charged at night. I would have given this 5 stars if I rated it a while ago. However, it broke. We have had the monitor for about 16 months. Suddenly it lost it's connection and doesn't pick up any noise at all - whether plugged in or not. The most frustrating thing is that the lights indicate that it is working so you think it is, but it's not, so you don't know if your child is crying or not! We would turn it off (both the receiver and the base) and the "reboot" them and it would work for a while but this started happening more and more. Now it usually won't connect and only occasionally will. I'm really sad because I love the monitor but I won't buy it again and I won't recommend it to others because you expect a baby monitor to last at least a few years while your child is still young and you need one. It is not a product that I planned on purchasing multiples of so I'm sorely disappointed. I have to purchase a new monitor this week.

Rated 4 out of 5 by votts The 2-way function is great.
The only difficulty is the battery blinks when charged

Rated 5 out of 5 by LMWea The sound and noise suppression on this product is second to none.
We have 5 of these units which we use for elderly care in our home and grand-baby visits. We tried a couple of other products which had noise suppression issues. We got our first 2 about 5 years ago and really like them for their compact design, reception distance and sound. They really solved the noise issue. Set at full volume and it has no noise (electro-static). That is huge when sleeping at night. It's nice when you can use them as a intercom as well.
The only issue we had was after a year or two they loose there receptivity and it is hit and miss on the reception with constant alarm beeps when it would loose it's connectivity. We finally called tech support and found out they had to be reset. They walked us through the resetting steps, which is not a big deal, and they are like new again. We gave the "ease of use" a 4 star for that reason. For the price range they are tops as far as we are concerned.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Av8r We use this monitor 24/7. A tool we would find hard to do without...
The four stars is due to the first monitor set developing an issue of
loosing it's connection three to four times a day/night after eight
months of use. This caused the parent receiver to emit a triple beep
every several seconds until it reconnected with the baby unit. We
exchanged that set for identical hardware and operation has been
flawless for the last two months. The units have a continuous digital
connection. This allows automatic monitoring of the link and
bi-directional communication. That will come in handy when our
seven month old starts talking...
