Given the description of "satin nickel" I was expecting this to be made of metal. Instead, it's made of plastic. That was disappointing. Plus, the finish is shiny rather than a matte finish as I was expecting. I'd describe more as a chrome finish than a satin nickel finish.
Still, it works fine and is simple to install. Be careful, however, when you undo the screws for the wire posts - they are hard to turn and are very short, so once they break loose, it's only a couple of turns before the screw comes out.
The bulb is replaceable, but the cost for a bulb from NuTone is about the same as the cost for a whole item. The light looks nice -- in addition to seeing the light through the push button, there's also a clear plastic ring around the button that is lit. Very bright and easy to see.
OK for the price paid.
As mentioned in previous review, this is plastic and a bit shinier than one would expect "satin nickel" to be, but it is close enough to door hardware to be "good enough". One thing that I suspected, but couldn't be sure of - this is fairly thick (distance from mounting surface to button surface). This 3/4" should be included in the spec. The picture for the satin nickel implies this thickness, but the pictures for the other colors make it seem slimmer. This was the only basic rectangular shaped button option in satin nickel, though... Also, my button seems to be a bit more recessed at the top than at the bottom, which is not necessarily bad since it points a bit up at the user, but still a bit odd. So if yours is like that, pay attention to the orientation when installing.
A helpful tip - if you are replacing a unit with a functional bulb, go ahead and remove bulb from the old one. I'm sticking this spare in the body of the new button...
This doorbell is garbage. I knew somewhat what I was getting myself into in that it was plastic, but I didn't realize how poorly made this is. I was buying to replace an identical doorbell button at work. I wanted to replace the doorbell button which has been on for about 5 years, but was looking rough. When looking at the old button I could see that the light bulb housing/wire attachment piece was held on with tape applied by our handyman, but I thought this had to do with age and that a new one wouldn't give me a problem, but it turns out this piece is just too fragile.
This small (vital) piece is held in place by two 1mm thick pieces of plastic. If there is any tension on the wire (as is the case for me) then the small plastic pieces pull right off, and the connection separates from the button rendering it useless.
