Rated 5 out of 5 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 out of 5 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 4 out of 5 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 1 out of 5 by Motion sensor doesn't work, 2nd light won't come on I own two of these. The motion sensor stop working on the first one. This is one of the reasons I bought it (so the light would come on automatically when you enter the garage). It doesn't. The other unit's 2nd light bulb won't come on. The base where the bulb sits almost looks corroded, and can't be replaced. I spent a lot of these, so I wouldn't recommend buying. Now it's too late to return. September 22, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 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
