Parents posting to user review sites give The First Years Digital baby monitor a low average score. The advantage of digital baby monitors is that they theoretically get less interference from other electronics. While we didn't read many complaints about interference, we did read numerous complaints that the First Years Digital baby monitor loses its signal frequently, beeps annoyingly and that the night light is too bright.
