Well... You can install it by yourself like I did, but I wouldn't recommend it. It's a two person job even if the second helper just gets & hands the tools to you. The drive is very quite and fast to open the door. I used the old brackets to mount the motor as they were heavy constructed. Otherwise, plan on purchasing the additional mounting kit under $30.00. The brackets that are included are thin and lightweight.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by DrScop Quiet, smooth, decent speed, nice features, easy to program.
Owned for 1 month now. Operates great and Timer to Close is great. The original door opener replaced had a one piece chain rail. It was mounted at the rear of the motor and at the door mount pivot. I had to mount both front and back of the new motor unit to the ceiling as the sectional belt rail mount at the motor is not as strong as the solid rail opener it replaced. I had to take the weight off the belt rail as it was drooping a little with only mounts at each end. I also had to shorten the belt and belt rail which was easier than I hoped. The belt end clamps bend open and closed with pliers but are secure enough originally and once reclamped. Overall a nice product with smooth operation. Have not used MyQ.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by HandyinCA Great opener, highly recommend it!
The delivery of the opener was great, it came earlier than expected. I was surprised at how small the box was, then was impressed at the economy of packing of the Chamberlain Whisper Drive.
Install was pretty easy, though I did have to give some thought about moving some supports from the previous opener.
We really like how quiet the opener is. The auto door close timer is great. With my old opener I moved my car late one night and forgot to close the door. Glad my neighborhood is relatively safe as nothing was missing from the garage the next morning.
Good job Chamberlain!

I opted to install this myself and did not have too much difficulty doing so. Instructions were easy to follow except for Assembly Step #5 - attaching the spring retainer properly to the belt and the trolley. It seemed to me that the diagram did not match the actual part. Took me a frustrating 15 minutes trying to figure out how to get it all attached but I eventually got everything hooked up. It's been working well for over a month now and it's much quieter than the old chain driven opener that I replaced. My other screw drive opener seems noisy in comparison now. Make sure to lay out the rail sections first and get them all oriented the same way before you start assembling them together because once they're put together it's nearly impossible to get them apart again. Plan on spending the better part of one morning or afternoon getting this installed by yourself.
