Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by none Purchaser of 3 openers
I recently purchased/installed this opener at a vacation home after installing 2 of them at my full time residence. They were delivered quickly and all parts were included. The openers work well and the units seem to have a good design. The assembly of the unit was not a problem. I had to spend some time making changes to the supporting structure due to the new units being a different style and brand than the previous ones at home and the fact that the vacation home never had an opener. I am very happy with the units and the extra remotes provided. Each of the remotes in our cars can operate all 3 garage doors, which is very convenient. Genie seems to make a very good product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by specialedteacher VERY QUIET
I purchased this product online and it arrived in three days. I'm not mechanically inclined but...was able to install this without any help. The directions were easy to follow. I chose the product due to price and other's reviews. I needed to replace my previous garage door opener. Im amazed at how QUIET the opener is. Its a 1/2 horse power which does affect how quickly the door opens and closes. The garage door openers do not work from a mid to long range. I do have to pull within 5 ft of my garage for the remote to work. For the price..and ease of installation...you can't go wrong with this purchase.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ToolTime Nice operation at a reasonable price
The installation was pretty quick and easy. I haven't installed an opener in a number of years and found that what is now an economy opener was easier to install than the older models. Only problem I have had so far is in adjusting the downward force. I can not get it to stop and reverse itself the last four inches while closing. At higher points of pressure, it seems to work fine. This is a safety concern that I plan on addressing with the manufacturer. Mounting was mostly pretty easy, and programming the upward and downward limits, and the remotes was extremely easy and painless.
For the rest of the performance, everything works well and I am very surprised at how quiet and smooth the opener works.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chris Replacement Gagarge Door Opener
I am not a handy, mechanical, or electrical person. I bought this to replace the old genie garage door opener that came with the house. The price was very good. I had thought about paying someone to do it, but thought I would try to do it myself. I started at 9 am on a Saturday and completed the installation of the new one as well as the uninstall of the old one at 4PM Tracks, wiring, sensors, and head all were replaced. Following the directions I was able to do this on my own. This one is much quieter than the old one and looks much better as well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by William Great product so far for the price!
Have had this unit for just a little over a month now so we will have to wait and see how it holds up. Unit was simple to install, taking the old garage door opener and track down then installing this one took just at 2.5 hrs, working by myself. Installation was rather simple and the instructions were very good and I couldn't find anything that they didn't cover. Had called a couple of different place before purchasing this unit and it was going to be around $400 for them to come out and install one, so save yourself the $275 and install it yourself, I paid right around $125 for this with shipping, well worth the money so far. Also, my other opener was about 16yrs old and this one, even with chain drive is so much quieter than the old one. I would recommend this.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jewels Not as easy as we hoped
Prep work on the ceiling took a lot of time, but that isn't a reflection on the opener itself. We made two additional trips to Home Depot during the installation. The first one was to get a rachet set to make the installation easier, and the second was to get mounting straps that we didn't realize were not included until we got to that step in the process. Unfortunately, what they had a HD was not really what was required and again we struggled due to inadequate tools (we were installing this unit at our daughter's house.) One of the cosmetic cover tabs was broken upon receipt, but the opener functions fine without it. I recommend that a buyer go through the installation manual completely before beginning the project to make sure the area is prepped adequately and all the necessary tools and parts are assembled.

After having backed into our garage door, our previous Genie opener stopped working. We shopped on line and found some openers costing less than this one. We have faith in the Genie brand, and wanted to stay with Genie, so we ordered this one. It was delivered to our house quickly and in excellent condition. We expect this Genie opener to last us many years. We feel that one cannot go wrong with Genie and Home Depot.
