Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by alex Great value opener
Like many other customers, I was also surprised how quite this opener runs. Compared to other products on the market, this model looks way more 21st century, and it comes with such a affordable price, so better value. One remote control is not a problem with us because the second car of our home has Homelink. My suggestion to your new installation, buy two more metal bars from Homedepot, and install them like the attached photo to ensure stability of the garage opener.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GoGators Better than the 5 Genie openers Ive purchased!
After the 5th Genie opener failed (in 9 years), I figured it was time to try something else. I was skeptical of the opener due to the low price ... But was willing to give it a shot due to the decent reviews. I just installed it yesterday afternoon. It took me about 2 hours and was pretty straightforward. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. I'm completely shocked and pleased with how quiet the opener operates. It is significantly more quiet than any of the 5 previous Genie openers. Time will tell how durable it is ... But at this point I'm very pleased and will buy another one when the last Genie dies (we have 2 doors, hence 2 openers).

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Pauper7007 Cheep, but I'm cheep
My older screw drive garage door opener started having problems, and a repair company wanted about $90 just to come out, so I figured I'd look for a new opener. This one caught my eye, at less than $100. As the title suggests, I bought it because I'm cheep. I can see why most openers are screw drive. This one works, but was a challenge to put together. The chain wants to move 90 degrees from where it should be. I finally gave up and left it there. I don't know if it will fail after a short period, but I'm sure I'll NOT buy another chain drive unit. My "recommendation" based on price, because I'm cheep. As baby chickens go, cheep, cheep, cheep.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HandyAndy Good little unit
1st time diy and this took a little longer than I estimated. Primarily because I used the wiring included, also had to install a new hanger on 2x4's to it fit, as well as add an electrical outlet that would accept the plug on the unit. The included directions were manageable. Just wished all the included parts came labeled better and in individual plastic bags.
The only issue I had was getting both safety sensors to work. My advice to anyone doing the install with new wiring is to make sure you don't staple down too hard hanging. I used a staple gun and it pinched some of the wiring, which I finally figured out was the cause for one of the sensors not turning on. No problem loosening up the staples but it added to the time installing.
Overall a nice quiet unit that works effortlessly. Here's to hoping the motor lasts.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GrandSportC3 What a Value!!
I bought this unit for one of the 2 car garage doors in my secondary garage. The unit was very easy to install (about 2 hours) and it is very quiet. What a great value for the money! I used existing wiring from the previous unit, so I saved some time.. It would probably closer to 3 hours if you'd run the new wires. Sure, it does not have all the fancy features of other openers but other than that, it seems to be a great quality unit.. The 1/2 HP is enough to open my 2 car garage door without any issues.. I highly recommend this unit..

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CWT69 Good product. Works as expected
I needed to replace 25 year old garage door opener which was similar to this one and also made by Chamberlain. Before installation, I put in new springs to get a better balance. The installation was not difficult since I was able to use the existing outlet and hangers. I replaced all of the other parts. I like the light beam which triggers the light when you walk or drive into the open garage and also keeps door from closing when obstructed. It is much quieter than previous unit and works well so far. It came with only 1 remote control and I have not tried to synch with the existing transmitter in the MDX yet.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 7275 Replacement Door Opener Better than Original!
My old opener broke a gear after ten years of service so I replaced it with the Chamberlain1/2 HP Opener. The installation was easy and needed some adaptation from the existing but well worth the time spent. The new opener works great and is much quieter than the original opener! An inexpensive solution to my problem!
