Was installed in no time, great key pad. So easy for my mom to use. My sisters and I are happy that she finds it easy to use & it works so smoothy. If she's safe we have less to worry about! Also Quiet after lithium grease.

Let me tell you this thing is QUIET!

I purchased this unit to replace a 10 year old Genie Screw Drive, that the control board went bad, and nobody had in stock. Let me tell you this thing is QUIET! My screw drive was noisy from day one, but, other than my metal garage door making some noise, very quiet. I like the fact that it was easy to install, and, program. I would recommend this unit. And, the price at Home Depot was the best price I could find.

These work great and put off a natural color - similar to incandescent.

Wanted the low energy and duration of LED bulbs in my garage opener. These work great and put off a natural color - similar to incandescent. Opener works well with these bulbs too.

It is a breath of fresh air how quiet this is.

I'm pretty handy around the house, but have never installed a garage door opener before. I looked as several online, and this had the bang for the buck that we wanted, was on sale, and had good reviews. It took me and my 18 year-old son about 3 hours, start to finish, including all programming, taking down the old one, and installing the new one. This unit was much lighter than the one it replaced. One thing to mention is that the guide bar was about 9 inches shorter than the former one, which made mounting it a little bit of a challenge (it ended up being right between the studs, of course). Once installed and setup, it has worked like a champ. Compared to the chain drive, it is a breath of fresh air how quiet this is. Speed up and down is nice. So far, so good!

It is so quiet I can't believe it.

Just replaced a 30 year old screw drive Genie opener with this one. It is so quiet I can't believe it. Install was so easy, I did it by myself. Great product and excellent price. Hope it lasts as long as the last one.

The installation was very simple and only took a couple of hours. The best part is it is nearly silent.

I purchased this opener after the one I had burned up. The existing genie I had came with the house and was 10 years old and a very noisy screw drive. The installation was very simple and only took a couple of hours. The best part is it is nearly silent. You only hear a muted hum of the motor and if the door is properly lubricated and adjusted it makes no noise at all.

The instructions were clear, the installation was relatively easy... and there were no issues getting it to work.

When I got my first Genie garage door opener 40 years ago, there was no internet. I just went out and bought what was in the store. This time, there was a plethora of web sites and reviews available to consider. I read many cautionary tails of woe about products that had confusing instructions, didn't work at all, or didn't work after a short while, as well as terrible customer service. I chose this product because it had a significant number of reviews, all above two stars, and only 2 reviews at three stars. And the price was good. Turns out that I am also one of the satisfied. The instructions were clear, the installation was relatively easy - even matching the location of my 40 year old opener, so I could use the same mounting straps - and there were no issues getting it to work. How long it will last is still to be discovered, but I am hopefully optimistic.

The whole process was quite easy. The new opener is quiet and easy to use...

I was worried changing out my old garage door opener. I have done a lot of things myself, but this was new to me. Turns out, the whole process was quite easy. The new opener is quiet and easy to use. If you are not swapping out the opener, the instructions are still pretty clear and straight forward. If you garage door is taller than 7' make sure to get the extension segment. Thankfully I didn't require it, but overall this is a good product.

The unit is extremely quiet and strong.

I purchased this opener today to replace a 16 yr old screw drive Genie opener that had went bad on me. Directions are very clear and detailed, it took me 1hr 40min from the time I opened the box to the time I was complete. You can reuse your existing wires just make sure you hook them up in the correct order. The unit is extremely quiet and strong. I have a 7ft 2car fully insulated door and this unit has no problem opening it. Make sure you take your Time to set up the up/down settings and it you won't have any problems. I will be buying this unit for my other two garage doors.
