Usually I do not leave comments but always read them and use Their input for my purchases. When I was buying my first moniter I found shopping very difficult because everyone hated or loved a certain monitor. Thought I would write a review of what I believe to be a decent monitor for average usage. This is our second monitor the previous monitor (Graco) held on for as long as it could. About 11 months in it could not hold a charge and only transmitted static. Purchased this monitor as a replacement. Yes it is silent when there is no movement (no white noise) but picks up instantly. Was a bit nervous at first but after repeated attempts to fool it, it always picked up a whisper. The reception is amazing and absolutely NO static. Enjoy the room tempature feature and 2 way intercom. The only reason I gave this moniter a 4 was there is no battery back up so if the power goes out so does the receiver. However if there is an outage the parent unit beeps to identify that there is a problem. I would recommend this monitor with the Purchasers knowledge that there is a (No white noise) feature.

We purchased this product in the hopes that it would be "quieter" than our current monitor. Needless to say we got what we were asking for. My spouse and I sleep in a room just adjacent of the baby's room.
Out of the box it did take some tinkering with to get used to messing with the configurations on the parental units. So far so good...
Until we decided to test the sensitivity. It is just like the other reviews say, the parental units stay whisper quiet unless the baby makes a loud noise... and I do mean a considerable amount of noise.
We tested it very simply, one in the baby's room and one in our bedroom. To me the "high sensitivity" in this unit's microphone was lacking... putting it mildly. It didn't pick up any of my loud "whispers" in fact it didn't even pick up anything until I talked in a normal tone.
No where does it say that it cuts on and off in the manual we have. When there is a noise that is loud enough to activate the parental units, the parental units will then pick up EVERYTHING, Eureka! We fixed it... not quite.
The parental units would only remain active for what we timed out to 10 seconds, if no sound was made then the parental unit would then revert back to its silent counter-part.
Long story short we took it back because our Sony baby monitor that cost a third of this one picks up everything, and that is what mom likes (she likes to be able to wake up and be able to hear the baby breathing to know everything is alright).
We'll just deal with the mild interference and the noise that we get from it from time to time than continue to wonder if the baby is asleep or not with this product.
I would have liked the product much better if maybe it had two different reception modes (something like what I've described above).

For parents:
If you're not interested in hearing every little sound and only the cries of you distraught baby (whatever the reason may be), then this is a great baby monitor that has great features for a "reasonable" price.
If you're a (new) mom who is constantly needing to hear the baby breathing or any little noises that he/she may make then make every effort to avoid purchasing this monitor! (Our little girl would sometimes wake up in the middle of the night and start playing in her crib, but when she plays she either makes very little or no noise at all, and we wouldn't find out until we would go and check on her and see her on her hands and knees crawling around her crib! An issue we never ran into with our previous monitor...)

      Not a bad product. At first it was tricky for all the pieces to work and the instructions are not very clear. The main unit that is in your kids room always must stay plugged into the wall and the wireless unites that you hold onto are difficult to turn on and off.

        This product is easy to use and works very wel! I love all of the features on it. We have one monitor in our dining room and one in our bedroom. The sound works very well. I like the fact that you can play music on it and you can talk into it! It also has a clip on the back so when I'm doing housework I just clip it on my pants and I know I'll be able to hear my son anywhere in the house.

        Comments about Motorola Inc Motorola Digital Audio Baby Monitor with 2 Parent Units - MBP16-2:

        When this product works, it's a great monitor; however, we find that it DOESN'T work more often. 1 - the mother unit does not have battery back up so it must be plugged in at all times. 2 - the two daughter units receive wireless connection. This is great - but they drop connection CONSTANTLY and what's worse is the beeping it makes when that happens. There is no way to reconnect them, you just have to wait. We have used these for less than 8 months and the most recent "drop in connection" could never be reestablished. We tried to return to Motorola directly but without a receipt they will not accept it. This was a gift for my shower and do not have a receipt. With proof from my registry, I only get lowest price paid in last 90 days which turns out to be 50% cheaper than originally. I am very unhappy with these monitors and with Motorola itself. We've been using FaceTime Audio in the meantime and works better than these. I wish they worked better.

            Comments about Motorola Inc Motorola Digital Audio Baby Monitor with 2 Parent Units - MBP16-2:

            I've been using this product every day for the last 9 months now, and I guess I can say it's "okay". The range I find phenomenal, and I love the nightlight feature on the baby's unit. I find the parent units hold a pretty good charge and will typically last a night (but don't worry, once the battery gets low enough it will emit the most annoying beeping sound imaginable that cannot be missed). I wish the baby's unit was also rechargeable, as our bedrooms are on a different floor than our living areas (where she naps) and I always have to move the baby unit around if I want to get anything done during nap time. I'm also finding that during the night when the parent unit goes to sleep, it no longer detects my daughters whimpers (where it used to pick up everything) even though it's right beside the crib, and only seems to kick in when she's in a full on meltdown. All-in-all this product does its job, and I like it alright, but I will DEFINITELY be buying a different brand for my next child, and keeping these monitors at my parents house.

              Needed a baby monitor that was durable and did what it said it would do. I had gone through 2 prior. One given as a hand me down and the other was a baby first monitor that didn't last long at all! This Motorola monitor has bells and whistles we didn't think we needed! Love the temperature reading and the feature to speak to my baby! When my husband talks to him through the monitor he actually quiets down!

              Comments about Motorola Inc Motorola Digital Audio Baby Monitor with 2 Parent Units - MBP16-2:

              We have used this for 2 years and it works great still. Except, one of the "parent" monitors randomly stopped working about a year in. So that bothers me. But other than that, its a great monitor. It goes into a sleep mode or something when not much sound is detected and I hate that, so we have a sound machine on so the monitor stays on so i can hear every toss and turn. No big deal. Its pretty loud too. I love being able to see the temp in baby's room, and it's a true reading. Also, the night light on the baby room monitor is surprisingly bright. Not crazy bright, but enough. And the best thing is being able to talk to my baby in the monitor. Sounds pointless but, when they are crying, all it takes is baby hearing your voice till you get to them. The beeping that happens when its not plugged in is absolutely horrible. But, at least you know.
