Answer: 
Chain tends to be the loudest of all openers with some greasing on occasion and adjusted chain requiements. Belt driving is suppose to the quietest of the 3, minor adjustments might occur. Srew drive applications are direct drive. everyone has their opinions on them. it is basically up to how you like the design, performance and reviews of products.

Answer: 
Belt drive utilizes a rubberized/ plastic type belt to pull the door up and down. A chain drive does the same thing, but is noisier, and the screw drive is a direct screw type mechanism. The belt drive and chain drives are circular while the screw drive is basically a straight shaft. The screw drive is more quiet than the chain drive, and probably about the same noise level as the belt drive.

Answer: 
Belt drive, a large rubberized belt between two pulleys, provides quieter operation, especially for garages with rooms above them. Chain drives, like a bicycle chain, are usually cheaper but noisy. Screw drives, a joined long screw that turns and a "nut" runs along it, have less moving parts, are slower opening and noisy, but don't hold up in wide temperature changing climates, like Sacramento.

Answer: 
These drives differ in the mechanism used to lift and close the door. Each transfers energy from the motor to the door in different ways. The screw drive uses a screw mechanism to lift and close. The belt drive uses a belt like the drive belts in your car engine. The chain drive uses a chain like the bicycle chain from pedal to wheel. The screw drive may be the noisiest. But I believe it's more durable.

It's a good quality opener and has more power than I actually need for my door, but I have a couple of issues with it. It is difficult to program to work with the built-in Home-Link buttons in my cars. I'm using the supplied remotes still because I couldn't get it to work with Home-Link. It has a high-pitched screech when operating, in spite of lubricating it with lithium grease as recommended by Genie's 800 number helpline. Guess I'll lube it again, but I don't want it dripping on my wife's white car.
