Although professional reviewers have good things to say about Evenflo baby monitors in general, owners' opinions of the Whisper Connect are less favorable. Despite winning praise for its clarity and sensitivity, this 49 MHz analog monitor averages low to mediocre ratings on consumer review sites. The Graco UltraClear II (*Est. $40), which includes two receivers, fares better in reviews as the best basic baby monitor.
The popular baby-gear book "Baby Bargains" has excellent coverage of baby monitors including the Evenflo Whisper Connect and Whisper Connect Dual monitors. Owner-written reviews are also a good source of ratings and general information. This model hasn't yet been tested by Consumer Reports magazine.

Authors Denise and Alan fields rate baby monitor brands rather than individual models, but their reviews tend to be thorough and balanced. Reviews are based on some hands-on tests as well as parent interviews. Customer service and manufacturer reputation are also factored.

Amazon.com is often an excellent source of baby monitor reviews, but the Evenflo Whisper Connect and Whisper Connect Dual get only a handful of posts each. Despite giving these monitors mediocre scores, owners here say they like the Whisper Connect's clarity and sensitivity.

There are a dozen reviews of the Evenflo Whisper Connect on Viewpoints.com, but references to features like two-way communication indicate some confusion over which model is actually being reviewed.
