Rated 5 out of 5Â by Chevybass So good, I went back and purchased another one...
The belt drive so quiet....and once you lube the garage door pivot points and bearings (like you should do annually); it is unbelievable how quiet it is. I do like the âsoftâ close feature that slows down the speed in the last 6 inches to ease the door close. This should add years of life to the motor and hardware. The closed door confirm remote is awesome, because I do not have to drive back to see if I remembered to close the garage doorâ¦.donât laugh I am sure you have done the same thing!!
The down side isâ¦â¦I donât know how late my kids come home, now that I cannot hear the garage doors open. Seriously, the only minor thing that irritates me is that the light cover does not seem secure enough with the three tabs holding it in place rather than screws in my older models.
You will be pleased with this opener...enjoy!!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Kens Just an excellent performer. Quiet, well built and strong.
This is the best garage door opener I have ever installed. Easy up, and easy to use. Raises the double door easily and is very quiet. The added features, like the lock button on the wall control is great when going away for a few days. I would recommend this to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by henBry Oh wow.... It's really quiet.
The opener can be a bit of a challenge putting it up by yourself, but I got it done right the first time.
It is amazingly quiet. Since my wife drives a Prius and now the new opener, she caught me playing video games instead of doing the laundry. (That's why I'm not greasing the hinges on the door.)
Also, when I start work really early in the morning. The old opener made too much noise and wakes up the baby (I was forced to park outside). Now it's quiet enough for him to stay asleep.
The closed confirm system doesn't work out for me. I drive away to fast and then I'm around the corner before the garage door closes. I have kids so I refuse to adjust the speed.
-So far. It works great for me.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by GlenCo Seems to work fine
Bought one of these March 2013. Installation was simple. Adjustments after install were a breeze. Replaced a 15 year old Chamberlain belt drive unit that quit working (circuit board ). Very quiet and reliable. I had one very minor issue (see below). I press the button the door goes up (or down) as it should. The "lock out" works as it should, the "lights on" button makes the lights go on (or off). The two included remote fobs work fine.
In particular I like the soft start - soft stop it provides. The old Chamberlain, while quiet in operation, would cause the door to jump on take off and nearly slam when the end of the run was reached, causing the door to shudder and "complain". I think this Genie takes 2 or 3 seconds longer to open or close (due to the "soft" program), but I can live with that.
My "minor issue" is one thing that was a little different than I was used to, and that involves the keyless entry control. If I just punch in the code and hit the up button, it only works about 1/2 of the time. My "work around" --- I press any button, this "?wakes up?" the unit, then punch in the code and press the enter button. It's worked every time since changing my habits slightly. I guess this is a fault, but it is so minor I won't reduce my rating.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by itismuddyhere One tiny detail
The washer that goes under the belt adjustment screw was thrown in the box and not around when I assembled that to the black shock absorber(I found it later!). The instructions do not show that clearly so....long story short when I had it ALL assembled and trained the up limit it worked perfectly, but unbeknownst to me the adjustment screw had pulled halfway into the rubber shock absorber. The belt hung loose and almost fell out. Much fun and cussing while I found the washer, pried the adjustment bolt out of the now assembled track above the door, re-assembled the belt adjuster and adjusted the belt again. How much easier it was the first time before the track was assembled! Anyway other than that and feeling like an idiot all went well. Nice opener works quietly and perfectly. Note to factory maybe in the future have that kid assemble the washer on the adjusting bolt!
