We are on our second baby video monitor. Both have been purchased from Costco. The first one was by a company named Lorax and it did pretty much everything we needed. The issue was the connector was very poorly placed. It was essentially a micro USB connector that stuck up out of the base. This meant that you had to wiggle it on and place it exactly onto the base. My wife noted right after we got it in February 2011 that it was ‘weird’.
Sure enough, the design caused the receptacle in the actual monitor unit to come loose and eventually break off within the unit.
Costco has a great return policy where most items can be returned indefinitely. So, we took it back even though it had been 18 months. They took it back no questions asked.
They don’t sell the monitors in the store, only online, so we went looking for a replacement. Our biggest requirement is that it have two video cameras so that we can monitor both kids.
