I recently replaced a 24 year old Stanley Garage Door Opener. Much quieter, Love its features : Timer to close (TTC), Battery Backup, Door control Learn button and sensor. REALLY EASY TO TELL WHEN SAFTEY SENSORS ARE ABSTRUCTED NOT LIKE OTHER MODELS WHERE THE DOOR GOES BACK UP WITHOUT LIGHTS FLASHING.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 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 5.0 by bikerdude Great piece of equipment
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 5.0 by hotman2938 Outstanding product!
I purchased this two days ago and feel like I was a pro installing the product. The instructions were spot on. The door opener is very quite and lifts my 7x8 wooden door with ease. Adjustments were spelled out, Now my son wants me to install one for him at his house. Thanks!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 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 am extremely dissatisfied with this garage door opener. I specifically purchased this model because it was "home link" compatible. After installing, when I went to program the opener to my vehicle, it did not work.
After a frustrating call to their customer service department I find out that for it to work with my vehicle I must purchase another accessory. Oh, and it will cost an additional $25! Their answer is simply that the "home link" DOES work but you need the accessory. I now feel I was duped into spending extra money for no additional features and wish I would have gone with a less expensive competitor's model.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dougp26364 Going strong after 4 years
We purchased a Chamberlain garage door opener approx 4 years ago to replace the Craftsman opener which had failed. The instilation was more difficult than anticipated and took approx 3 or 4 hours. The operation is quite. The only issue we've had is the battery lasted about 3 1/2 years before dying despite rare occurances for using the battery back up. The battery doesn't seem to have an especially long life and, as we work 12 hour shifts, if the power were to fail just after we left our home, the battery would be dead by the time we returned home. It's not something you can count on for long power outages.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KJSWAY Excellent opener worth the extra money
This unit excels in a lot of categories. Clear instruction, straight forward installation, ability to program from the wall unit, quiet operation and overall quality. The two best features are battery back-up and automatic closing. The first time your wife or daughter has to use the battery back-up to open/close the door when the electricity goes out we'll be worth the extra money. You can set automatic closing to 5, 10, 15 or any minute duration you want. Go to bed and leave the door open? Leave home and leave it open (or the kids do)? No problem, the door will automatically close after the designated time.
