Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Larry Very impressed
Yes I agree it is not a whisper but compared to my chain driven door opener it is a walk in the park. I can hear my neighbors garage door opener's from my garage and I'm sure they did to. The installation was easy and professional. The only problem I ran into was my garage faces the hot afternoon sun. (New construction, no trees)The sun was beating on the one sensor and the door would not close. Later that evening when the sun went down it worked fine. The solution was mounting it to the wall instead of the track where it is shaded from the door.Works perfectly now.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fishers Great product, software needs some work
Well, it's not whisper quiet but it is quieter. We rent out an apartment above our garage and the tenant definitely noticed by not noticing the garage doors opening any more. We bought it with the tenant in mind and it definitely fulfilled that.
Installation was fairly straight forward. It took some time but I think every garage door would take the same amount of time. A few things could be called out better in the written instructions but overall it was okay.
Software is a little funky with nine and ten digit serial numbers. It all easier from the website. App works but not as friendly as the website.
We bought the stop sensors too. They pulsate light...should be a constant light.
We bought two of these. No regrets.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by southlake Not whisper quiet
Unfortunately, this opener is not really any quieter than our Liftmaster chain opener was. Our main goal with this purchase was for a quieter motor and we don't feel we got that. I took Before & After videos of our garage door opening and closing and if I didn't know which one was Before or After, I'd have a hard time guessing which video was showcasing the new vs old opener!
The only reason I'm not totally disappointed in our purchase is that we now have a wireless keypad to open the door with.

Picked up two of these up to install in my parents side-by-sde garage and they are exceptionally quiet! Installation required my Dad and me but that was mostly for removing the old systems. This system opens and closes the doors very smoothly and there is no rough jerking/loud screeching like there was on their old ones. Really makes the garage look brand new, especially with the laser sensors! If you are a car nut like me or like having a nice garage these are a necessity! Highly recommended!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bobvila Best of ALL the garage door openers I've installed
This opener is the easiest to install, the instructions were clear and correct. It is the quietest, with the belt drive and having a room above the garage, it proved itself. Several items that came with the unit were the lighted control button and the large size of it, Great. The outside pushbutton control was a cinch to setup and I use it all the time when I am doing yard work and don't carry my keys with me. The feature with the indicator light to let me know if the door is down is great, I don't have to open the door to see if I have left the garage door up. So I can say this is the BEST unit I have ever owned.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Paul Great Bargain
Bought this unit to replace an 8 y.o. Genie screw drive. This machine makes my old one look rather weak. Operation is smooth and quiet (I used to think the old opener was quiet). Lots of featuers included: Opener Monitor, keyless entry, etc. It took about 4 hours to install, but I took down the old hanger system and braced between studs with 2 X 6s. Great machine, and all the adjustments were perfect. Just had to screw in light bulbs. Unit has a clean, neat look when installed the way I did.
Was skeptical when I purchased, but am sold now.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mikewolvs Easy Install
Purchased and Installed the WD822KD 1/2hp Belt Drive. Install was fairly easy even though this was the first time I had done one. Hint, follow directions to a tee and don't make up your own. Works much better that way. Garage door works great so far and I love it. Only problem was the included door monitor failed upon use. However, I called Chamberlain, and they had one sent out to replace it right away no questions asked. Will reveiw again later if I have any issues. I would recommend to friends and family.

THE WHISPER DRIVE MODEL WAS SO EASY TO INSTALL, MY WIFE COULD NOT BELIEVE IT WAS WORKING, BECAUSE IT WAS SOOO QUIET.
EASY TO FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS WITH PLENTY OF DIAGRAMS TO SEE YOU THRU THE ENTIRE PROJECT.
I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND CHAMBERLAIN TO ANY ONE THAT WAS INSTALLING A NEW OPENER OR REPLACING AN EXISTING ONE
THE BELT DRIVE IS SO QUIET YOU CAN NOT HEAR IT FROM THE ENXT ROOM OVER, AND WE HAVE AN ATTACHED GARAGE.
LOOK NO FURTHER THAN CHAMBERLAIN
