Certainly an interesting 'device.' Programmed sounds are boring, however trying to program my own sounds was met with moderate success. Seems there is some issue with the 3.5mm jack that creates a buzz when connecting to a computer and took a lot of finessing to load any sound. Only takes .wav files. It's either overpriced or poorly built for the price, take your pick.
I was a little heaitsnt to purchase this item, with no product pictures available. We had looked at similar products at a store. Purchased item and have been satisfied with it. No issues to date. Kids love it.

Originally looked at home depot and other hardware stores- very limited selection of cheap doorbells. Your product was exactly as advertised and easy to install- solid product-worth the money
