The difference in noise is just amazing...

My 13 year old son and I just replace our 18 year old Genie screw-drive opener with this unit and the difference in noise is just amazing. This model is easy to install, took only 3 hours with hardware change and easier to adjust.

Excellent opener, super quiet. The only noise is from the door track rollers. Excellent value with the battery backup. Compared to my 2 previous craftsmans, this is 10x better.

Totally solved the problem. I love these light bulbs. Works as advertised when other (normal) LED lights wouldn’t light up at all in my garage door opener. These are (nice) and bright and I haven’t noticed any problems with interference.

At 800 lumens, and 3000K light temperature, it's very bright -- I was pleasantly surprised at the light output.

I've been reluctant to use LED bulbs in my garage door light, as I had read that the LEDs can interfere with the garage door opener signal. I never bothered to install some of my spare LED bulbs to test the claim, so I've been using CFLs and incandescent heavy duty service bulbs. I'm happy to have this bulb, which is the more efficient LED, and designed for use in garage door lights, and also damp location rated. The bulb is surprisingly light weight, with a plastic base and globe. At 800 lumens, and 3000K light temperature, it's very bright--I was pleasantly surprised at the light output.

I chose this garage door opener LED bulb because I have had trouble using conventional incandescent bulbs. One especially is always getting loose and I have to climb a ladder to tighten it. This bulb is vibration resistant and solved the problem. Other LED bulbs cause interference so this solved that problem also. I love the brightness also, better than the 60 watt bulb I used before. They have a long life (25,000 hours). This bulb is also rated for a damp location, which is great for my area (Florida).

The Genie Screw Drive 2 HP opener is a smooth and quiet improvement over the chain drive unit it replaced on my sixteen foot, insulated door. Installation was straight forward and, although I could have done it single handed, a half hour of neighbor assistance with lifting it into place was much appreciated. Operationally, the DC drive motor delivers “soft” starts and stops, with fast speed travel in between, opening and closing the door in about half the time of my old opener. Add the Aladdin Connect Wi-Fi features and it’s like you are never away from home.
