Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tomchicago Nice upgrade from chain drive
Upgraded from a Chamberlain/Liftmaster chain drive unit that was about 10 years old and failed. The belt drive is indeed much quieter (the door still makes noise, but that's not the opener's fault) and seems to move the door more smoothly than the chain drive did. The overall fit and finish of the unit, remotes, etc. has improved as well.
Did need to get an extension kit for my door - integrated with the unit just fine.
Installation was relatively straightforward though the instructions seem a bit unclear in a few spots. Was able to reuse the safety sensors, ceiling mount, and the arm that connects to the door from the old installation to save some time.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 3rdTimeACharm After 3 openers in 3 years, this appears to be the best one
This is the third opener I have had to buy in three years and so far appears to be the best one that I have purchased. The last one I had was a Genie (most expensive model) and it lasted only 9 months.
This opener was easy to install (although I have done 3 in the last 3 years so maybe I am just getting good at doing the install). The opener is very quiet, was easy to connect to my homelink system in my cars, and the light on the opener provides a lot of light for the garage (something that I was not happy with on the Genie).
One thing that is odd about it is that if you want to leave the door partially opened (I have some outdoor cats that I leave the door cracked open about 4 inches for during the day) you have to close the door all the way shut and then crack the door. I don't know if there is a setting to disable that, but on previous models you could just stop the door on it's way down. Doing that with this opener will just raise the door all the way back up to the top. It's just something I had to get used to but it was annoying at first.
I recommend this product. Would buy again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Smack Way quieter than our old screw drive
I bought this to replace the old screw drive that has been in our garage since who knows when, we've been here 8 years. It sounded like like an industrial trash compactor when it opened or closed. I assembled and installed it myself in about 4 hrs. The only thing that I had to change was moving the existing ceiling bracket back a few inches since the rail on this unit was a little longer. The wireless pad and wall mount controller work great and when in the house, you can't hear it when it opens or closes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Poleg Quieter than old Chamberlain Lift Master
i took down old Chamberlain Lift Master that was 15 yrs old.I bought the Chamberlain HD520EV as a replacement.Instructions were easy but I found it was best to double check each step and yellow highlight each step pertaining to my door and exsisting lift.I worked on it a few hrs in the evenings aft work.It took me 7hrs to install.easy job if you are the Handy Man type !!! Also took a pencil and x out anything that was not relevant to my situation.Also it is 80% quieter that the old chain drive unit.So far so good. Also I am going to purchase the Chamberlain surge protector from Amazon as an added peace of mind and to protect my New purchase !! Thanks Home Depot !!!!

I have only had this product for one month, but so far it is working great. Very quiet with a smooth motion. Keypad works without issues. Puts off good lighting in the garage.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mark Nice opener, but @homelink doesn't work with cars just a few years old.
The opener is fine with regard to opening the door. Its very quiet and the controls are nice. My issue is with @homelink and it not working with my wifes 2008 BMW and my 2012 Tacoma. This appears to be a common issue with this opener. if you don't care about @homelink working, buy it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RemodAL Very Nice
Very nice product. Handles my Hurricane Impact door no problem.
Pros - Easy to install. VERY quiet. Nice look, looks modern. Great features. Lots of simple options. App works great and good features.
Cons- comes with MyQ technology, but you should know that you need to buy the Chamberlain Gateway in order for it to communicate. As with any boxed garage opener, the track is not one piece so it has some flex in it. Nothing to be concerned with but you can see the difference form a one piece track when it closes as far as pressure.
