      I considered plastic or electronic doorbells that cost much less. But this one outclasses them with the look of real wood, and while electronic doorbells aren't bad, you can't beat the sound of real chimes. You'll have to decide for yourself if the extra cost is worth it to you. I recommend buying in the store instead of online. Since this is made of real hardwood, there are variations and imperfections, so you'll want to pick and choose. There were quite a few imperfections (splits, nicks, small globs of finish) among the ones I had to choose from. The internals are very simple. The tried and true circuit is identical to the one I replaced from 40 years ago. There's not much to go wrong, and it's easy to diagnose if something does. (In contrast to wireless or electronic doorbells. Especially wireless, which sometimes can drive you nuts.) The chimes don't seem loud, but they are actually quite effective with a pleasing strike, rich tone, and long decay that an electronic bell just can't match. Maybe it's not for a home where the TV is on full blast all the time, but I wouldn't say it's too soft.

      Pros Great Sound Quality, Stylish, Easy Replacement, Easy Installation Cons inconsistent quality control
