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
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!

White noise sounds most like a fan; rain sound is the most natural.Nov 18, 2011
By Amazon Customer
It does the job in providing ambient noise in a bedroom. It's not going to hide the bumps and noises that vibrate through the house, but sound machines help to make them less noticeable. The concept behind any sound machine is that if you've already got some noise in your ears, all the other sudden noises blend in rather than startle a person awake.
- There's a single red LED light on top, which is not too obtrusive.
- The buttons make a click sound when pressed, so switching sounds while a baby is sleeping is not seamless. I don't recommend doing so.
- At a higher volume, the white noise sound has some distortion and other repetitive noises or ringing that occurs and is annoying if you're paying attention. We liked it at first because it replaced having to run a tabletop fan in the middle of winter, but the distortion got a bit annoying. So either I use it a low volumes, or if I need higher volume, I switch to the rain.
- The rain sound feels the most natural because the steady rain fall is not interrupted by noticeable cycling or repeat seams or other thunder sounds. It sounds like a steady rain is falling outside your windows, but without thunder and lightning.
23 January 2012 Update:
After a few months of usage, I noticed another issue that affects the quality of the sound machine:
If there is another electronic device in the room, the sound machine will occasionally have static. I finally figured out that the cell phones (either a smartphone-iPhone, or a regular primitive cell phone) were causing the interference. It's not immediate, but it's pretty disruptive in the middle of the night when it happens. I have a digital baby monitor camera in the room, too, but that doesn't cause interference, though I think the older radio styles might.
It *is* possible to use a smartphone in the room without causing static noises as long as it is in airplane mode (all Wi-Fi and phone service turned off--for those of you who use your phones as silent vibrating alarm clocks.)
P.S. We've used the sound machine in the same room as an ultrasonic humidifier, and they seem to be compatible with no interference.

Awesome !!!!Aug 10, 2007
By Michelle Alessi
I purchased these machines for my two girls, 2 1/2 yrs and 1 1/2 yrs old after using a humidifier as the backround sound for almost a year. I love them. the sound is great. There are 10 settings.... Rainfall, running stream, waterfall, songbirds, heartbeat, white noise, ocean waves, summer night, thurnderstorm and tropical forest. I would highly recommend

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.
