Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great opener, easy to install I had a screw drive Genie opener and had nothing but problems. It would stop opening so I had to unplug the electricity and then it would work again. Screw drive broke, tract guide would strip every year and had to install new ones, WHAT A PIECE OF JUNK, don't buy one. Got the Direct Drive and other than one mistake on the assembly it was pretty straight forward (just make sure the contact for the drive is in the right direction, down). It is so quite my wife doesn't know when I come home now, good for me. Not as fast as the Genie, but looking forward to many trouble free years, plus this has a lifetime warranty, any thing breaks and they send me the parts. Great customer service with no long phone time waiting. March 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Garage Door opener EVER! This is an awesome garage door opener. My husband and I installed it 6 months ago. Just a couple of user error issues, but we did it ! We never would have even attempted to install a chain drive opener. Extremely quiet. We are building another house and will have 2 garage doors. We will have 2 Sommer openers (if we can find them...they are becoming scarce!) March 27, 2014
