Vtech DM222 ReviewPrice: $60.00 List | $43.49 at Amazon - 28% off
Pros: Great sound clarity, lots of useful features
Cons: harder to use, short range, limited battery life
Bottom line: Despite impressive sound clarity, parents are better off with the higher scoring, lower priced Vtech DM221
Open Field Range Test: 1235 Feet
Manufacturer's Claimed Range (*buyer beware!): 1000 Feet
The Vtech DM222 is a feature packed sound monitor with excellent sound clarity. No matter what feature you are looking for, there is a chance the DM222 has it and more including a cool ceiling glow nightlight and lullaby. Unfortunately, the DM222 struggled to match the less featured Vtech DM221 for ease of use, range, and battery life. Thanks to a shorter range, limited battery life, and a hard to use parent unit, the DM222 failed to impress testers and earned a lower overall score making it a monitor we don't think is as good as its less expensive brother.
