Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by BlueCanoe cheap quality product
The slots in the mounting screws are very shallow. I could not keep a straight-bladed screwdriver in the slot. I had to use a hack saw to cut the groove deeper so that I could get the screws in. I really would pay a little more if the store would carry a better quality line of products.

This doorbell is simple and does the job. It replaced a cracked door bell that looked similar. My husband had no issues with the install.

Easy to install even for an old lady like me. A small price for a nice touch to the front entry.

A cheap plastic button. If it isl located in the sun, it will become brittle and fall apart after a couple of years. In my case it stuck on and over heated the chime unit.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by NickName Fine button until the light burns out
This lighted doorbell button is made in China. It is easy to install, and the light is bright. The bright light should have tipped me off -- in one of the two I bought, the bulb burned out after four months. The bulb is not replaceable, so after it goes, you have a non-lighted button.
How stupid is this design! Doorbell transformers have been 24 volts for decades. A good design would have used a bulb rated for a higher voltage, even if that makes slightly less light.
If you're an electronics wiz like me, it's easy to remove the bulb and install a white LED in this button. I did this with both buttons, and now I never need to worry about a bulb again.
Technical summary: Bright white LED, 1N4001 diode, 1.8K 1/4-watt resistor, all connected in series between the two button terminals on the circuit board. LED current is about 6.5 milliamps.
Unsolder the bulb, clean the holes, and solder one lead of the diode and resistor in each hole. Mount all components on the back side (away from the button) of the circuit board. I drilled a #11 hold through the center of the circuit board, and poked the LED through it, securing with two drops of super glue. Connect the remaining lead on the diode and resistor to the LED.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by amd609 great price
This works great for a replacement for our broken push button. I have yet to install it so I'm not sure how easy it will be but it seems pretty easy. Cant beat the price!

Glad I bought this cheap doorbell button. This is the only one that fit between my Anderson 3000 Storm Door & the framing. This is the narrowest sized doorbell button I seen in the store. Works great. Seems a little cheap in design ruggedness but time will tell.
