Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Thornak SilentMax 1000 3/4 HPC is quiet.
It is definitely much quieter than the previous (20 year-old) screw drive we replaced. The installation went fairly well but I did have a contractor do most of it. It took a couple of hours with removal of the old opener. Luckily we were able to use some of the supports from the old system to stabilize the motor. The ones sent in the package were not strong or rigid enough. Yet to see if this one will last as long as the previous one.

Had one of Home Depots' trained professionals installed the garage door opener, they were truly professional during the installation,and I could not be more happier with the garage door opener.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by June2016 Excellent opener
I have bought 3 garage door openers in the past year and this is by far the best one. I bought 2 Chamberlain chain drives and this Genie belt drive. As expected the Genie belt drive is much, much quieter than the chain drives. In addition, the Genie recognizes the car's "homelink" (built-in) transmitter for pre-2011 cars as well as newer cars. I have 3 cars, a 2004 vehicle, a 2011 and a 2015 vehicle. The Chamberlain garage door opener will not program to the 2004 vehicle, unless you buy additional equipment to make that work. That is true for both Chamberlains I bought. Soooo.... not only is the Genie more quiet and lets me program all cars, it was also $9 cheaper than the Chamberlain. And to top it all of, the Genie is a 3/4hp motor while the Chamberlains are 1/2hp. I'll never buy another Chamberlain, this opener is far superior.

WOW!! This thing lives up to it name "SlientMax" and is very smooth! I got this on a killer deal 50% off at Home Depot and am thrilled with the purchase. For the quality and value, it would be nearly impossible to do better and I honestly don't know why one would need more than 3/4HP unless their garage door was ultra-ultra heavy and insulated.

Got this at 50% off. No one around to set up Home Depot installation. Decided to do it myself. Took me 4 hours, but proud knowing I did it and saved a ton of money! Works great and very quiet!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by student4life An installation tip
Yes it's much quieter than the old screw drive. I have one that has been trouble-free for over a year now. It went up easily, I love it.
During installation of a second unit, I discovered there is a hole in the cover, right beneath the hanger slot. You should put a piece of tape over that! I dropped a bolt into it and had to disassemble the cover to retrieve it from under the circuit board. The cover is easy to remove, just two screws and it slides off, but the screws have to be removed from the bottom which is awkward when the unit hasn't been hung yet and you're supporting the motor in your hands... Then you need to be careful not to pull on the electrical wires inside.
