Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 129 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chamberlin Garage Door Opener 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. August 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by All around a great opener First, thanks to those who answered my question regarding the support beam running across my garage and provided the measurements of the opener. The mounting holes on the motor unit attached directly under the beam. I installed this unit from scratch as it was replacing a Wayne Dalton iDrive opener that was mounted directly above the garage door so there were no brackets or side light beam sensors already in place. Installation was easy when following the directions, particularly the updated ones for steps 4&5 included in the box. There is also a very good 13 minute youtube video covering the installation. I did a little each night over 3 nights in the cold weather and took my time. Putting the actual unit together takes less than an hour. The rest was mounting and running wire through my garage given that I did all from scratch and my old unit was wireless. I considered buying the LIftmaster version to get the solid rail as this rail comes in 5 sections. The Liftmaster is only available from dealers and costs much more without the wireless keypad. Glad I didn't as the rail on this unit is very tight and does not flex at all during operation and easily opens my 18x7 foot insulated metal door. I've read comments about it not being "whisper" quiet and not as fast as expected. It is unbelievably quiet - the nylon rollers moving through the track are louder than the opener. I haven't timed it but whether it opens in 7 seconds or 10 seconds doesn't really matter. Love the auto close feature - my wife has already left it open and it closed automatically after 5 minutes. I have a 2009 Acura and the Homelink programmed just fine the first time. I was very surprised by this as I'd spent hours trying to program the old opener and was expecting to need the repeater. Curious that the button blinks rapidly when pressed, as I had never seen this before, but it opens the door so am not complaining. February 17, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice and quiet You will need to follow the directions carefully to complete this install but the results are worth it. I replaced an old screw drive with a belt drive and the improvement was amazing. The belt drive is very quiet. The new electronics add a lot of good features. I mainly like the Time To Close feature that closes the door after 10 minutes if I don't. Lots of other features you can choose from: battery backup, internet connect, etc. To install correctly you need to follow/ understand what the directions are saying. Measure twice, cut once. You will need to be a bit more than a novice to install this. Requires drilling in metal, wood. Careful measurement. Running low voltage electric wires. If you doubt your abilities get a garage door installer. DIYers will save about $200. October 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. January 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fantastic garage door opener. Chamberlain whisper drive door opener is fantastic, very easy to install with easy to read instructions. Buying on Home Depot .com was so easy and deliver was great. November 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by quality and quiet I am very happy with the operation of this unit. I would like to warn future purchasers to look for an additional installation sheet separate from the instruction booklet. The descriptions included in the book are not accurate and the supplemental instruction sheet is needed. I didn't figure this out at first. I used the instruction booklet from my other opener to complete the installation. Otherwise it is very quiet and very smooth. March 12, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quiet, Good Looking & Awesome - Like Me : ) I had this installed by a home depot installer. They had my broken opener replaced and the new one operating in 30 minutes. Well worth the price of install. While they were assembling in my driveway, I registered the MyQ internet gateway that I bought separately. Before they left we tested opening and closing the garage door from my iphone. I ordered everything from the home depot website and saved myself a trip to the store. Installation took 5 business days from order date. Could not be happier with the product and installation. Everything is Awesome! February 24, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A very good Garage Door Opener Ease installation, the directions could be a little better but if you take your time it is a ease installation. The sound of the opener is next to nothing. All the controls work. The only thing that I have a problem with, is getting my car built in controls to open the garage door. But I will keep working to get that to work. A GREAT PRODUCT March 10, 2015
