Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 110 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great opener with great features I purchased this opener last year at home depot on Aug. 5, 2012 and to this day its still quiet and lifts my heavy 8X18 insulated hurricane door with no problems. I love the fact that chamberlain gave me a free MyQ Internet gateway to operate my door using my smartphone which is awesome. I hope I get many more reliable years of maintenance free operation.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great features for the price. Motor end took some extra time. Needed some flat straps and bolts. Otherwise installation was easy. System works great even when on battery. Quiet as advertised. Keyless entry and wall unit easy to program. Range on remote is great. Very pleased. December 9, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great opener, Homelink disappointment Really pleased with unit. I'm a DIYer and found the install straight forward, only hiccup was my misunderstanding on installing the tension control. I was most pleased with the opener 'knowing' the opening and closing limits without me having to do any config. I also like the motion detector on the wall control that turns on the lights on the unit. Biggest disappointment is that Homelink doesn't work with our 2012 Hyundai Elantra and it took going to online user groups to find out about the incompatibilities. I could understand if an older car, but I figured a new car and a new opener would work together. Haven't tried the MyQ yet, but looking forward to use it soon. September 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Buy Let me start by saying it is well worth the money and I am very glad I purchased it. I had someone else install this when I got a new garage door installed. I had a Genie screwdrive, which was loud and I had issues with it closing. The installation seemed very easy and I could have done it. Skip the install kit, as it was the same stuff the garage door guy had in his truck to cut down. Seems like very flimsy stuff. The product is whisper quiet and works awesome. Regular CFL bulbs went in with ease. The garage door also slows down at the end so that it won't slam or shut hard. The motion sensor on the keypad works great to turn on the lighting when entering the garage. It has a timer that can be adjusted so that the garage door will close if you forget to close it. The MYQ lighting switch ensures that my wife and I don't enter a dark house ever again. The only way to know if someone is opening the garage door is from the light turning on, because it is so quiet. Haven't used the backup batter yet, but seems to be a great feature. Garage door could be a little quicker to open and close, but not a big deal. It is not compatible with my HomeLink, but for 7 dollars, Chamberlain will send me a repeater. I did notice the remote rattled on my visor even though I tried to adjust it. Don't know what the deal is, but I will just go with the HomeLink. Programming is very easy and can be done from the main wall button with the different remotes and keyless entry. Wall remote unit displays time, temperature, battery strength, and the time to close your garage door if you forget to close it Overall, 5 stars all around. January 28, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Solid for two years and counting This garage door opener has served me well for two years now and counting. It was a bit of a pain to install since I had to do it by myself, but overall it went Ok. This thing is indeed very quiet. The door goes up quickly, and considering we have an over-sized garaged door, that is impressive. The battery back-up has saved us a few times. We live in an older neighborhood with a lot of old trees. When there is any heavy wet snow or ice we tend to lose power for an hour or so each time. We have no worries about getting in or out. The battery seems to have lost a bit of its capacity, but that is expected over time. Overall this is a great opener! May 12, 2012
