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.

Disappointing...

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...)

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

We loved this monitor because it actually had a very clear sound and didn't have many issues with interference. My daughter loved the fact that it played music and that we were able to talk to her through the monitor. It would have been nice if the parent unit had controls for the music though as it would have been helpful to be able to turn it back on without going into her room to do so. The biggest issue with the monitor is that just after the warranty was up, it suddenly would no longer link the parent units to the baby unit. We have tried everything, even turning the monitors off for a few days and turning them back on close enough to each other that nothing was interfering with the signal...no luck with any troubleshooting. Now, we are out to look for a new monitor.

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

    The product does what it needs to do; monitor the babies. I can hear them clearly and I like that it can play music. I would like if it could play the music a little longer, maybe 30 minutes instead of 15. I just sneak back into their room quietly and turn it back on again. Some more soothing songs would be nice, I feel like most of them are a little upbeat which can wake them up instead of making them get sleepy, but overall this musical feature has worked well for us. One annoying aspect is that the power button on each monitor responds poorly. It's very hard to turn them off. Also, we just keep them plugged up constantly so I have no opinion on the battery life.

        Returning because parent unit un-links from base unit in Baby room. I don't feel comfortable with our baby in his room on the other side of the house at night when i don't know if the unit will unlink again if he needs us.

        Also-I HATE these hold down buttons to turn the unit on and off; holding it down too long will turn it on and then back off without you knowing. Watching for a tiny green light before you walk away. The whole unit gives me anxiety when it should give a parent peace of mind!

          Doesn't pick up all the sounds my baby makes. I thought it would be better built but it's just all plastic. You can't turn the music back on with the handset.

              We have owned this baby monitor for 9 months and for the last month have had problems with it intermittently working. We adjust the cord and smack it a few times, then sometimes it will work for a while. But it will randomly stop working. And the temperature is always off by 2 degrees. Spend your money on something more reliable.

                I use these monitors all throughout the day while my baby is napping and sleeping. They work great I love the fact it has a small light on it. Another part of this monitor I like is the fact that you can talk to your baby from the other monitors. :-) we also use the music option every time he goes to sleep I love it and I would recommend anyone to get this product it has worked great one suggestion I would have is to be able to turn the music on from the parent monitors other than that no complaints here :)

                  This is so typical Motorola. A product just on the brink of greatness but having that big fat elephant sitting there on the furniture breaking the heck out of it...and nobody at Motorola willing to do a thing about it.
                  This set has little or no protection from power failures, brownouts, surges, etc. It is ENTIRELY too sensitive to such events and you will be fortunate if you still have a monitor after such a thing happening in your household. Oh, it will happen. You'll come home to no monitor.
                  This is an expensive system for being so wimpy...
                  Motorola is still sporting their "We're too big to worry about your troubles" attitude. This is a design flaw, pure and simple. Don't pay this kind of money for a system that WILL break when it should not!

                      We have been using this monitor for a couple months and it seems to be working great! We have unplugged the main unit and moved it to a different room with no issues. Some reviews talked about the unit not linking again once unplugged, but we have not had that problem. So far its been great and picks up sound well.
