The recording is pretty easy. iChime has a line in, but I just used the built in mic and recorded from my PC speakers. The quality is not crystal clear but is fine for a doorbell, in my opinion. The volume is fine for me - I have it on the lowest setting and can still hear it. The volume might be a bigger issue if you have a really large home or have some continuous white noise. I would not let this prevent you from buying an iChime - I think you can make it work if you really want a recordable doorbell.
You can record up to 54 seconds or so - either one long recording or up to six different ones. The built in sounds are good too. The instructions could be a little clearer about the size of hole needed for the wall anchors - no drill bit size mentioned. Overall this is a pretty well built doorbell and a good option if you want one on which you can customize sounds.
The fact that there are 6 total user recordable slots made for a lot of fun. My kids each recorded their own chime and we have agreed to rotate the sound each week. My suggestion if you are buying this for the custom user chimes, is to pick a song with little to no bass. The output speaker on this device is not made for high fidelity audio.
In summary I felt like this was a great purchase and the neighbors and delivery drivers have already complimented the chime within a week of installation.
I did find the instructions a bit confusing. If I were the manufacturer, I would explain more thoroughly... Like you need a battery even when you have a wired doorbell because the batteries operate the digital components that are the "guts" of this device. The explanation and diagrams about the transformer options were confusing, too. But once over those hurdles, it was straightforward: Wire in place; secure to the wall (or whatever you want). Press doorbell. It is that simple. It would be even simpler for folks who have a wireless doorbell.
I see it's no longer available for sale...I can imagine this is because multiple buyers have had the same issue. I'm reviewing anyway, to express my frustration.
