Professional reviews say that video and audio quality on video monitors in general just isn't up to par. Owners are slightly more positive than expert reviewers: Average scores on user review sites are slightly above the midpoint, putting the Quiet Sounds slightly ahead of others. We found the best reviews for another Summer Infants model, the Summer Infant Day & Night Handheld Color Video Monitor with 1.8-inch Screen 02090 (*Est. $170). Overall, experts say the video feature is unnecessary in most cases and audio-only monitors are more reliable.
Authors Denise and Alan Fields include a useful review of the Summer Infant Baby's Quiet Sounds Video Monitor in their latest edition of "Baby Bargains," the best-selling baby-gear book. There are also numerous owner-written reviews at sites like Amazon.com and Epinions. The hundreds of posts at these sites add up to a detailed picture of how owners feel about the Quiet Sounds video monitor.

With more than 300 user reviews of the Summer Infant Baby's Quiet Sounds, Amazon.com is an excellent source of information on how this monitor performs according to parents who own it. Owners here praise the Quiet Sounds' picture quality and crisp nighttime image, but its overall score is middling.

Epinions has an especially useful review format, and entries on the Summer Infant Baby's Quiet Sounds, although relatively few in number, are thorough and detailed. The overall score here is slightly lower than on other user review sites, and several owners complain about interference, static and poor picture quality.
