The Samsung SEW-2001W Digital Wireless Baby Monitor is one of the items we featured in our 2012 Holiday Gift Guide. We also had the opportunity to try the baby monitor out for a review.
The SEW-2001W is a part of Samsung’s new Simple & Secure line of Baby Monitors. It features the latest DECT Digital Wireless technology, bringing you a fuller and clearer sound quality. The DECT Digital Wireless technology also features a 1.8 GHz secure signal that ensures you an interference free connection. The SEW-2001W also has an unbelievable range of up to 900 ft., giving you total freedom, convenience, and security.
We not only tried this monitor out ourselves but we had friend couple of ours also try it out. They just had a child of their own so I wanted to see what they thought of it as well.
I love the wireless design and was very curious in how well the monitor would work with the new DECT Wireless technology. With the new technology I was hoping that it would take away that awful buzz that you hear with a lot of the baby monitors, but unfortunately it didn’t. I don’t know if we’ve got some interference in the house that makes almost every monitor do that or what but I’m sure we do since our friends who tried the monitor stated they heard no buzz sound.
We have an upstairs and downstairs and we could hear everything just fine, besides the buzz the quality seemed to be clear in different areas of the house. It seemed to pick up everything. Our friends who reviewed the unit also stated that they could hear everything very clearly, they also stated that the audio through the monitor sounded far away, but still could hear everything. We didn’t get that far away sound but they did.
The one part I didn’t like was that the unit that goes into the baby’s room isn’t wireless. I was hoping it was but it’s not. The unit that you as a parent uses is wireless so it did make it easy to carry it around as I went downstairs to do laundry. I also went outside with it but it seemed to get very staticy just walking out the door and off the patio. I’m sure that’s because of the all the interference that could be outside?
Overall a good product. To me it has it’s pros and cons just like any other product. Our friends who tried it also said they really liked it an would recommend it to their friends. They thought the price was a little much but were happy with the product.
