Works Better Than I ThoughtJan 20, 2007
By W. C. Sherman
I bought this as a gift for my boyfriend, who kept complaining that he couldn't get to sleep sometimes because the house was too quiet. I looked at a much more expensive sound therapy machine at the mall, but it didn't have white noise, which is what he said he wanted. I thought this one was awfully cheap, but figured I'd try it before investing in a more expensive one.
We tried it the first night, and we weren't happy with the white noise sound, but love the falling rain and the running stream. A few days later, I ended up stealing it from his side of the bed and putting it on mine, and I love the thing! Within 5 minutes, I am sound asleep. I love the volume control too, which some machines don't have. I'm probably going to buy one for everyone I know for Xmas next year - I'm that happy with it! Great value for the price too. Goes to show you don't always have to spend more to get a great product.

Great product for people with little ones!Dec 31, 2006
By Jill T. Billiau
We bought this product to use in our daughter's room (she's less than a year old). We had previously used a small desktop fan on the floor to "white noise" out the house sounds (we have hardwood floors throughout the house and everything sounds like it's happening just outside the door). While the fan was okay, this is MUCH better.
It's smaller, lighter weight and I was happy to get rid of the fan since it cooled the room down considerably (something we didn't need in the middle of winter in New England). We bought a second one for our room. Our home is close to the highway and at night it now feels like we are miles away from the busy road.
I also like the battery/plug option. It'll be handy for when we travel.
This is going to be the baby shower gift I give from now on!

Not inexpensive; cheapJun 10, 2007
By I. Perry
Other reviews on this site said that this inexpensive item, was a bargain, so I bought it. The sounds it produces are very low quality. The white noise sounds like low quality TV static. Each of the other 9 options repeat their sound within a few seconds and are of equally low quality. I have heard white noise machines that produce a much more pleasurable and substantial sound that will put you to sleep in minutes. Unfortunately, from my experience this seeming bargain was not worth the money.

my standards aren't that high...May 06, 2007
One of the reviewers mentioned "a sound similar to computer speakers buzzing when a cell phone sits too close and has an incomming call" i have this problem too! it happens very sporadically, i know it's an outside interference causing it (it only happens when there's a car passing by, but only very rarely. I'm guessing maybe a car that is playing a satellite radio such as sirius or xm? but that's just a guess.)
as a different reviewer also said, i too have noticed the sound loop. sometimes it's annoying but usually it doesnt bother me.
other reviewers have mentioned the machine dying. it happened to me too until i switched the button on the side to 'auto timer on.' my machine will not work otherwise. this might be the same for you so if you still have your machine somewhere you might just try it and see.
out of the 10 sounds i only listen to rain, songbirds, ocean, tropical forest and sometimes running stream, but if you think of it, 5 out of 10 isnt bad. the other sounds are called white noise, heartbeat, summer night (which i also like), thunderstorm and waterfall.
for people with pets: i was very surprised to notice that my cat really seems to enjoy this machine, especially 'rain', 'tropical forest' and 'songbirds' it is good to know that it doesnt bother our pets sensitive ears, though 'thunderstorm' annoys my cat and makes him go sulk in the bathroom until i change it to something else.
for the price and the variety, i believe 3 stars is fair, however i would have given it 4 if there werent so many mechanical glitches and 5 if the loops were longer and less evident.

Interference Creates Loud Screeching NoisesOct 31, 2007
By C. Tyrrell
The sounds it makes are fine and in fact are soothing but if you put it in a room with other electronic devices, there is a LOUD interference sound (similar to when you put a cell phone next to speakers) that occurs intermittently.
We've moved it everywhere but can't figure out what is causing the interference. Because it only happens every few hours, if we go to sleep with it, we get woken up in the middle of the night with loud screeches.
Unless you have a room with NO electronics whatsoever, I wouldn't recommend to anyone.
