"It's just a doorbell; either it works or it doesn't. What else is there to say?" You'd be surprised. As human beings we have accomplished incredible feats including sending people to the moon and curing horrible diseases. Yet when it comes to the doorbell, a simple device whose only task is to informs us when someone is at our front door, we struggle mightily. Search for a doorbell and you will come across all sorts of audio atrocities: some are obnoxiously loud, others are ineffectively quiet, and others produce a sound so irritating that they put you on edge every time a guest arrives.
Then there are the visual blunders: door chimes so large that they occupy half of a wall, or ones that just look like a discarded early prototype for a military communication device.
How did we go so far astray? All a doorbell really "needs" to do is provide a pleasant (or at least tolerable) sound each time someone presses the button outside your door while ideally not looking like an eyesore on your wall. Fortunately that is just what this one does.
Acoustically, it produces the traditional "ding-dong" sound, and it does so with real metal chimes, not a fake-sounding squawky speaker. It sounds neither old-fashioned nor overly trendy. The chime is easy to hear from several rooms away (for me at least) but it doesn't cause you to need a change in undergarments if it sounds while you are nearby. In terms of visual aesthetics, I wouldn't necessarily call it attractive, but neither is it an eyesore. It is neutral enough to fit with most decor and styles and it maintains a presence on the wall without drawing attention to itself.
Bottom line: If you want a doorbell that makes a statement or allows you to express your own personal style, this isn't the chime for you. But if you want a reliable, pleasant-sounding doorbell that is moderately attractive, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better option.
