This motor replaced a merik in my house in Panama. My 1/2 hp merik was purchased in 2008. I received a replacement price of around $875 due to my mountain location. After inspecting the motor closely, I noticed it was a Chamberlain motor that was re-named on the outside housing.
To cut to the chase, I purchased this product in FL, transported it in my luggage, installed it in 2-1/2 hours with all new controls and keypads but using my existing rail system.
It works great and saved me around $715 excluding tax. If you need to change a merik, this is a no-brainer.

I am quite pleased with my opener. I originally had a Chamberlain opener and it lasted for over a decade. This model is quiet and has many features. However, I was displeased with the fact that my local Home Depot in Eastvale, CA, wanted to charge me over 200.00 to install it, which I thought was outrageous. The installation cost was more than the actual price of the product. Insane!!! It makes you consider that next time when purchasing an item from Home Depot. I hired an outside installer who charged 100.00 and it only took them 1 hour to install. They did an excellent job and I could not be more happy.

The unit was easy to install with another person. Adjustments seem to be easy to make. Still playing with minor adjustments for range of opening and closing. Makes a vibration noise when opening and closing. Can't figure out what that is right now. tightened the chain a little but it did not help.
I like the keypad outside the garage. Disappointed that my homelink in my 2006 car will not sync up with the garage door opener. Car must be on a different frequency. Overall I love my new opener!!!

The unit was not able to connect to the home link buttons in my 2007 Isuzu Ascender and the website
www.bridge.chamberlain.com indicates that it this model garage door opener is compatible to my vehicle. I've written many times to customer service and they completely ignore what I say and tell me to buy the bridge. I tried to call them but after waiting on the telephone for an hour , I gave up. If I were you, I would not buy anything from this company. They will not give any customer service.

Purchased opener for rental property, detached garage with full size door. The opener itself is good. First opener I purchased was missing whole bag of parts. So the trip back to the store was a pain since I had jumped ahead and assemble center rail before I check for all the parts. Exchanged for a new one and started over. Assembly was good, no major issues. Final set-up was easy except for final adjustment for emergency reverse (2x4 test under door). Had to call professional to adjust. They spent 10 minutes and it was fixed. Not worth the $95 service charge. The main issues was that I didn't have the angle arm that connects the door to the opener in the correct position and didn't have the close limit set far enough. With it adjusted correctly (according to professionals) much more bow in the center rail than I thought should be. The (professionals) said that is normal for this type of opener.
Hope this helps. Opener is good, instructions ok, final adjustments, a little difficult.
Side Note: Installed a Genie belt drive about 3 years ago. Assemble and final adjustments much easier. Didn't need to call the professionals.
