Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Horatio Works Great
I purchased 2 of these units to replace outdated failed screw drives. The instructions were good but the installation took longer than expected because I had to relocate the ceiling support structure for the drive motors.
I thought the wiring for the safety light beam looked fragile and could be damaged by material stored on the floor or sweeping. Therefore, I drilled a 5/16" hole in the side of a spray can cap and installed it using the wing nut on the safety beam assembly. You can still see the green and yellow lights on the safety beam units. See picture below..

Not taking credit for installation. Had some help. Got 2 of these. 1 replaced an 18 year old Lift Master that gave me great service. Very happy with the purchase!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ElleDee So Far So Good!
I think the opener is a bit pricey, but so far works as it should. Not as super quiet that I thought it would be, but then it's opening a pretty heavy door. Installation takes two people only when you need to hold the opener to the ceiling to secure it. The rest of the time you can use a ladder to rest it on. I have no need for the MYQ technology, so cannot comment on that nor did I attempt to program my vehicles already installed garage opening pad, as I heard it was very difficult and an additional part is needed. So I just used the opener that came with the unit and hung it on my visor... like old school.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by FatKid As advertised... Does not work with Home Link
I've only ever used Chamberlain model door openers for their quiet operation (belt drive) and ease of installation. The only draw back is the fact it will not work with your vehicles' Home Link buttons. The MyQ feature might be satisfactory but you must purchase the interface (additional expense) to link to your smart phone. However, you always have the old fashioned door opener to clip to your visor. The wall control panel is more complex than it needs to be, but the auto close timer is a pretty nifty feature when those pesky little ones leave it open. Overall I'm satisfied, just dumbfounded by the advancement of technology sometimes and the arenas it has entered...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nate8384 Best opener for the $$
I purchased this opener to replace my existing chain driven beast of an opener. I needed something much quieter because my baby's nursery sits directly above the garage.. I leave for work at 5:00am and I can't be opening the garage that early with an opener that sounds like a pterodactyl excorcism. Anyway, all that lead me to purchase this quiet belt driven opener.
+ quiet, smooth, no unnecessary noise
+ comes with nice new remotes, wall opener for inside the garage and outside keypad which is perfect for my 8 year old son.
+ fairly inexpensive
+ has all the power you need to open a 2 car garage door
Overall, I am super satisfied with the purchase. I ordered the MyQ gateway as well and hooked this baby up to the Internet. Now I can control the garage from my iPhone. Super cool!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by butcherbob WHISPER DRIVE 1/2 HP BELT DRIVE GARAGE DOOR OPENER WITH MYQ TECHNOLOGY
I purchased the WHISPER DRIVE 1/2 HP BELT DRIVE GARAGE DOOR OPENER WITH MY TECHNOLOGY because I purchased one 4 years ago and liked the features. I am disappointed that they changed the technology in the remotes though. I specifically looked for a Chamberlain product so that our remotes would work with both openers. Well, guess what, they don't. So I called Chamberlain customer service and asked them if they are compatible and they are not. The customer service rep told me that if you buy another remote from Home Depot, they will work because they are universal remotes, even though they are Chamberlain products. So my suggestion to Chamberlain is to offer these universal remotes as a part of their new garage door openers.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jo1022 Works Well and is Quiet
The opener is quiet and works well. The light is automatic, motion sensed, and is very bright. The opener was simple to install and it was easy to setup the opener buttons for the house and car.
