Rated 4.0 out of 5.0Â by middleman Great opener, Homelink disappointment
Really pleased with unit. I'm a DIYer and found the install straight forward, only hiccup was my misunderstanding on installing the tension control.
I was most pleased with the opener 'knowing' the opening and closing limits without me having to do any config. I also like the motion detector on the wall control that turns on the lights on the unit.
Biggest disappointment is that Homelink doesn't work with our 2012 Hyundai Elantra and it took going to online user groups to find out about the incompatibilities. I could understand if an older car, but I figured a new car and a new opener would work together.
Haven't tried the MyQ yet, but looking forward to use it soon.

I installed two of these openers in my garage and am very impressed with the quality of the engineering and the finished product. The instruction booklet was the best I've ever worked with. The combination of simple, accurate text and good illustrations is superb. Even when I managed to not follow instructions and screwed things up the troubleshooting section got me back on track.
This is a quiet machine. I can't even hear it run when I'm inside the house.
My only complaint is that it will not accept CFL bulb even though the ad says it will. The diameter of the bulb directly above the base is too large for the socket to accept fully because the socket is on an angle from the housing instead of perpendicular.
I did a work-around by adding old fashion light bulb extenders to the CFLs but now the diffusers won't close. That's O.K. with me. I reduced the wattage usage by 75% and IT'S JUST A GARAGE! Who cares what it looks like?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by diehardbattery Very nice opener!
This product had all the features I was looking for, and then some. Installation was a bit tricky, mostly due to the layout of my home, and a bit of improvisation was needed. The only thing I would complain about is that the safety reversal sensors can still malfunction even though the LED lights are on, and according to the manual, are working normally. There is a varying degree of brightness as well. If they are dimly lit, they will not work right. They have to be brightly lit. Overall a very nice product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by Chuckwow Performs as Advertised and Very Quiet
I have a garage door opener to do just that: open my garage door. I want it to open and close from a button inside the garage, a coded pad outside the door and from a remote transmitter in my car. My newly installed WD962KEV does that perfectly. I replaced my noisy 12 year old screw drive opener with a belt drive.
Oh, how quiet this performs! I find myself looking at the door to make sure it is closing when I am inside because it is so quiet. I don't hear the operator, I hear the door panels and roller. The car transmitter range has more than doubled. I have already used the battery backup because of a storm related power outage. None of my neighbors could open their doors with their operator without electricity.
Those reviewers who complain about a 5 piece rail instead of a stronger one piece can't carry the one-piece rail home from a store in the trunk of their car. Those who complain about the latest technology in radio controls coming with their new unit not working with their out-dated car controls don't understand that many of these radio changes are due to government regulation and personal safety. The "standard" height garage door is still 7" in height. If one wants to open a door 8 feet high, one should perform due diligence before their purchase.
I can remember when door openers would wear out in 5 years or less. I expect this operator to give me even more than the 12 years of service my previous operator gave to me.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by drrlewis It is an awesome system!
I had it installed by Home Depot. They did an excellent job. The homelink didn't work with my 2011 Hyundai Sonata but all future models work. I called homelink and they sent me a repeater for a $7 shipping charge. Everything works great now. I have 3 cars so the other remotes are in the other 2 cars. The outside keypad works perfect. The remote light works with the remotes since I ordered the liftmaster internet gateway for $39. I can check the status of the door (open or closed) and check to see if the light is on from my iphone anywhere in the world. The door automatically closes after 10 minutes because my kids leave it open. The light goes on when I enter the garage. Its the quietest opener I have ever heard. It's the very best opener on the market, hands down. Just do your homework by going to the homelink site and the chamberlain site.
