Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by OlatheGarageHinge Application or Product Fail?
This is my third set of (2 hinges at a time) in the last 3 years for a 30+ year old single garage door in the center section (2nd and 3rd panel separation from the bottom). They last 9-12 months and then tear in two (horizontal) at or slightly above the second bolt/nut from the bottom (just next to hinge pivot). Home Depot folks have not been able to tell me if they think it is due to the garage door or the thinner metal from the Chinese mfg. All nuts tightened and rollers oiled and does not appear to bind/catch when opening and closing (with garage door operator) or when released and done manual. Anyone have this issue?

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by billybob Easy to install. Quality looks to be good.
A previous reviewer said these were poor quality. However, the one I bought looked a LOT sturdier than the hinge I was replacing. (Metal was a lot thicker). It will probably last for years (the cheaper looking one I replaced lasted for 15 years), so I can't comment on the long term reliability.
Hint: Before you buy one, check the number (1,2,or 3) stamped on the hinge so you get the right one
