What deaf young people say:

"The doorbell is simple and discrete and it feels like it has good build quality.  I like the colour changing bezel lights and the white strobe lights. With the doorbell on maximum volume, I was able to hear it chiming anywhere in the house. 

It can be placed anywhere about the house, but I find it too large and heavy to keep with me at all times. It would be nice if there was a battery level indicator built in, so you would know when the batteries needed changing.

This doorbell is useful for when my friends call for me to walk to school or getting parcels delivered at the door." 
Rhodri (13) mild to moderately deaf
