Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 119 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Outstanding product! I purchased this two days ago and feel like I was a pro installing the product. The instructions were spot on. The door opener is very quite and lifts my 7x8 wooden door with ease. Adjustments were spelled out, Now my son wants me to install one for him at his house. Thanks! July 8, 2015
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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chamberlain whisper drive The opener is amazingly quite. The wheels on the door are louder than the motor and belt system. Also the range of the remotes are very impressive. Installation is the only thing that has been a problem. Granted this was my first time installing an opener, and was easily worked through with the help of the internet. Great product! March 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Garage Door Opener This garage door opener was replacing an old one and the installation was very easy and utilized the old brackets from the ceiling. I did have to turn one of the brackets upside down to clear a beam running through the garage. Once installed it is very quiet. The garage is under my daughter's room and the old garage door opener woke her all the time. She does not hear the new one at all if she is sleeping. Very easy to set up once installed as well. One slightly negative comment, the directions on the inside of the keypad were different then the printed instructions. The keypad instructions were correct, for programming the keypad, so no big deal but slowed installation a bit. July 26, 2015
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
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Extremely good Garage Door Opener This was a reasonably easy project to replace my 35 year old Genie system with this new Champion unit. We opted for the belt driven unit and we are really glad we did as it is extremely quiet when operating. This unit has many safety features which my old unit did not. I installed my wife's side first and then installed the second unit on my side. Both worked perfectly and all remotes, remote entry pad, battery backup all worked as advertised. We are extremely happy with this Chamberlin system. July 14, 2015
