My rating points 9/10

I believe that with information above, you understand why I rate this Motorola MBP43 video baby monitor 9/10 points. It brings us many nice features. But I minus it 1 point because of its high price and fair battery. However, this baby monitor has two cameras which can be set up in two different rooms so this price is not expensive, just high.

What customers are saying?

Most customers who wrote reviews on this Motorola mbp43 baby monitor gave their praise for design, quality of video and convenience of this model. After reading many comments on Customer Reviews category on Amazon, I have some opinions. Firstly, beside two separate cameras design, the quality of video and image of this baby monitor is the most significant. This baby monitor with camera and night vision keeps your baby in your eyes, even when the light is weak or at night. Moreover, people also find it easy to use when they can move camera from side to side to look around the room.

Some people find that temperature or lullabies function are very useful but some others say that lullabies feature should be improved or eliminated; I think it is due to a few number of lullabies (only 5) and it’s not enough. Some critical comments claimed that the audio of this Motorola mbp43 does not work well. However, they also received another one for change (that’s free) from Motorola and all of them found that Motorola Customer Service is excellent.

Each one always remains strong and weak points so it’s easy to understand the praise and critical comments as above, however, if you find the strong points of this Motorola mbp43 is suitable for you, you have two children in different rooms for example, you should choose this one because it is equipped with two cameras and can be auto switch screen.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Good quality of image and video, even in night vision
  • Portable and convenient with two cameras and rechargeable battery.
  • Smart alerts: you will receive alert from monitor when the battery runs low or the device is out of range.
  • Easy to change view angle with remote pan, tilt and zoom
  • Easy to adjust volume and microphone. High sensitivity microphone is a useful part which allows you to talk back to your baby when you need. It saves time more than you think; you do not need to keep moving from here to there to only say one word with your baby.
  • You can set up only one camera or 2 cameras for two rooms or in same room.

Cons:

  • High price. But in my own opinion, it is not expensive with its outstanding functions and what it brings to your life and your baby. If you do not really need two cameras baby monitor and find another affordable one, you can choose one in our list of best baby monitor under 100$.
  • Fair battery life: its battery is not very excellent but you can recharge it. If you want to watch constant video you can plug it in to outlet.

Summary

In bottom line, I think that we can consider Motorola MBP43 as best baby monitor for two rooms or best video monitors for twins. The first advantage and convenience you receive from this monitor is that you do not need to invest in two baby monitors and keep two screens on your hands to see what your babies are doing. Compare with purchasing two separate baby monitors, this Motorola mbp43 seems to more worthwhile than you think.

If you have only one child but still need some features like Motorola mbp43, you can try Infant Optics DXR-8 baby monitor. This is an excellent one comes from Infant Optics brand. Instead of using two cameras and switching between each camera. With this function, DXR-8 allows you to change lens (normal lens for normal view, wide lens for panoramic view and zoom lens for close view). Moreover, this DXR-8 also uses close system (non Wi Fi) and supports night vision with smart alerts and temperature indicator. You can find more detail about this model in our Infant Optics DXR-8 review.

For those who need a smart Wi Fi baby monitor for multi-users, you can consider iBaby monitor M6. With very nice design and excellent features of lullabies and music play as well as high quality video and image, all in affordable price around 140$, it is very great choice for you.

Come back with our Motorola mbp43 review, once again, if you have twins or need to monitor your child from different views, this is the most suitable one for you which brings clear images and nice features. In that price range and what it brings, I think it not expensive as we think.
