Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sam Great overall
after 30 year old Sears 1/4 hp finally went belly up, did a lot of research on its replacement. I appreciate those of you that took time to write your experience! Went to local Home Depot and extremely disappointed in lack of customer service and knowledge. I found this model online but said not available in any store close by. Wrote out model # and sku # to go in and order + pay. Salesman said they don't sell genie so I showed him my phone to verify ad. He said he didn't know but would look on his computer. He couldn't find it so he called for help. 10 mins later, now I have 2 guys on computer another 10 mins until they found it. A 5 min deal turned out to be over 30 mins with 2 guys totally clueless. Order said up to 2 weeks to arrive but was delivered in 7 days. I already had old one removed so had it put up in 1 hour with help of 12 yr old son. Extra set of hands extremely helpful!! Never done it before but really simple. Strongly recommend taking apart and putting together with instructions. I have old wood door so this works effortlessly compared to old one. Quiet and looks great. These have come along way from 80's model for sure. 3 months later, ready to tackle other door. Will skip the store and just order online.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jon Really quiet for a chain opener
For a chain opener, this opener is really quite quiet. I'm really glad I got the 3/4 hp instead of the 1/2.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RockyMountainDg1 Fairly simple to install
Was pretty easy to install was able to use old wiring but you have to use the sensors it came with. Is really quiet but a little slow. Installed on 7' X 16' door. Hope going to the 3/4 hp does better than the last one. But the old one was installed in 1993 so hope this one lasts as long, was not thrilled to see all the plastic parts, time will tell. You are better off using uni-strut angle instead of cheap straps with holes it came with, was disappointed to see those in the box. Over all satisfied.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by John Very Quiet
For a chain drive unit it is very quiet. The instructions are very good except for putting the tract together. One thing they should add is to make sure the chain is on the sprockets before adjusting the chain tension. The time for me to assemble and install the unit by myself was alittle over 5 hours.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Very Quiet
I am a 57 yr old woman, and I installed this with no help. Of course I used 2 ladders, front and back to hold it up. Hardest part was getting rid of the old one. I especially like the easy remote set ups.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by baxfam Works well
Very quiet operation. It opens our large door very well. Instructions could have been better for an older garage door.
