First of all, let me say that I would definitely recommend this product. I would, however, suggest that you install it on a weekday or early Saturday morning as support is closed on Sunday
Assembly was a breeze. I noticed during assembly that the old limit switches were no longer used. I wondered how the up-and-down limits were going to be set. When it came time to do that you simply run the garage door down and then back up using manual control buttons on the powerhead. I got into trouble by taking the instructions too literally. The instructions said to run the door down firmly against the ground. What I learned later was that firmly does not mean firmly it just means until the door touches and settles on the ground. There are sensors inside the powerhead that sense when the door has touched the ground and when the screw track rail has been bowed. The system will not allow you to set limits that go beyond what it deems to be reasonable downward force. After several sessions with support we determined that I was over pressing the door and with a few little up tics on the powerhead Buttons I was able to successfully get the door to go down and stay down instead of kicking back up. I think the instructions could've been much plainer with how to initially set up the door. They waste several pages on how to set the force level but in fact the force level is set automatically during the first door cycle.
This new model allows you to reuse your outside control panel and old remotes. It also includes a button to manually turn on the power headlights for additional light in the garage without cycling the garage door. Finally there is a lock switch on the control panel that prevents the door from being raised remotely. I like the finished product and I am glad I purchased it.

Love my new garage door opener. There are some features I like a lot one being the opener button near my inside door. I can turn the light off and on as I need it. My old one I had to open the door for the light to come on and the wait for the light to go out. This one I can do it almost instantly. Saves electricity. I just wish it were a little quieter. I guess the next model up would have been better, but I bought what I could afford.

I bought 2 of these for a new home. The first one installed easily and worked great. The second one was damaged and had to be returned, unfortunately I realized this after it was installed. The wall switch was different also. I exchanged it and the replaced unit was exactly like the first on. It installed easily and it works great. These are not the ultra quiet type so use caution if they are next to bedrooms.

Only bad thing I can say about my purchase is that the Genie Powerlift 900 did not come with mounting brackets for the power head. Luckily I was replacing an old Craftsman unit and was able to use the brackets and hardware.

Took patience setting up and using the previous mounting brackets and hardware. The GENIE online Instructional Videos at: http://www.geniecompany.com/garage-door-openers/product-support/video/genie-video_direct-drive-screw-opener-installation.aspx?v=QD6wyh50bgY#i came in very handy and helpful. Crossing my fingers and based on other reviews that this opener will last a long time with no big issues. So Far, So Good. :)

We had this garage door opener installed after our previous Genie garage door opener was no longer working after having it for 8 years. We definitely wanted to buy another Genie product since we were very happy with the previous one. So far we are very happy with our new Genie garage door opener and it works great!
