Well, I was expecting (and hoping) it to be quieter. True, the belt drive eliminates that chain drive clatter but the motor is not much if any quieter than the LiftMaster that I replaced with it, and still quiet noticeable up through the (insulated) floor to the space above. The whole reason I got it was to minimize or eliminate the sound you hear from upstairs, but that wasn't the case. HOWEVER, post-installation I decided to try shock-mounting the thing, and that probably helped more than the new opener. Specifically, I put rubber exhaust hanger insulators (NAPA part #BK 7321253) between the vertical and horizontal ceiling supports so there's no rigid connection between the opener and the ceiling, and that quieted things down more than the new opener did (see photo). Whether it's safe is yours to decide but it seems solid enough to me.

    Changed from an ancient Genie opener to this Chamberlain 1/2 hp belt drive. On the positive side it currently does open and close the door no matter how sunny and bright it is outside. The Genie remote activated the door at a range of 3 to 6 feet from the door while the Chamberlain will open and close from over 1000 feet. On the negative side even though I had installed a Chamberlain belt drive opener back in 2009 (previous house) that took me about 90 minutes to install, this opener took me over 10 hours, and it was to say the least a really disagreeable task. The problem was getting the door to move to the desired up and down limits. I could get one limit established but then the other limit would not work. I obviously read and reread the instructions time after time but the controller just would not react as the instructions said it would. Finally the up and down limits stabilized after I plugged and unplugged the power plug, Then the remotes would not be recognized by the opener. They made some kind of change in the controller box between the model in installed in 2009 and this model that was manufactured according to the box on Nov. 17, 2016 and tagged by Home Depot on Feb. 28, 2017. I had a good history with Chamberlain openers but would definately try some other manufacturer if I ever move to another house that needs a new door opener.

    I just purchased the Chamberlain 1/2 hp Belt drive garage door opener # HD520EVP. While in the process of assembling the belt, I discovered the diameter of the trolley hole is too small for the threaded shaft. This is Step 4, page 8 on the manual. The only work around I can see is to replace the shuttle assembly or return the garage door opener. I sent an email to Chamberlain tech support explaining the situation. I'm waiting for a reply.

      Good overall quality and 800 support
      My installation was very difficult due to cross beams and low clearance of finished ceiling in my garage overhead.... other than that just follow simple instructions and/or video. I had concerns about the belt adjustment, so called 800#; no long waits; knowledgeable person walked me thru some adjustments via emailed videos. Opener has been in about a month now and is 10X quieter than old chain drive opener... very smooth and quiet.

      I bought this opener to replace a failed 14-year old opener of similar design, except that the old unit had chain drive and had the Craftsman brand (made by Chamberlain as well). The installation instructions are well-written and concise. Following the instructions closely, the installation went well and relatively quickly, no modifications needed at all in positioning of brackets and support members. After installing, I put this new opener in service and tested the safeguards, finding that I did not even have to make adjustments for down or up forces and for opening or closing travel distances. Instead of installing CFL or incandescent light bulbs, I installed 60 watt equivalent LED bulbs which work well with this unit. This unit is very quiet compared to my old chain-driven opener. The remote controls and other electronics for this opener are not compatible with my older Chamberlain-made door opener that is still in service, so that my other adjacent Craftsman door opener remotes will not work with this new opener. That means carrying two remotes in each car of ours to be able to open either door from either vehicle, a minor inconvenience for now. When I need a replacement for our second garage door opener, I will look for another Chamberlain of the same model. This unit is competitively priced at my local The Home Depot store. It carries a 15-year belt warranty for those who are concerned with a switch from a chain drive opener to belt drive.

      Install was quick and easy, but I as this was a replacement opener, bolts and screws to the door were in pretty much the same place as with the old one--a new install might take a little longer. Nice that it had the external keypad. Programming was easy. I thought the wires running from the safety sensors were a little short. Also, the instructions said to twist wires together for the sensors and insert the twisted wires into the quick release connector on the circuit board. This did not work, because the diameter was too big. I had to pigtail the wires. Lastly, the punch included is not sufficient for hanging, you're going to need more.

        I purchased two garage door openers - one with internet gateway built in. I was told by staff that this model would tie right into the other to open via app. That is not correct at all. In order to open with the app, you will need to purchase the separate internet gateway. Easy enough to hookup and connect. Otherwise, opener works well. Very quiet.

        So quite
        The install went smoothly and it is so quite. We have an 12 year genie pro on our other door but it's a chain drive and surprisingly noisy. Love the light switch. The one thing I'm not thrilled with is the external opener by the outside of the garage door. After the door shuts you can still hit open for a few minutes after it's closed and that isn't right. I worry about leaving and have someone come by 2 min later and open the garage door.
