Rated 2 out of 5 by from Inadequate WiFi instructions and capability Your manuals need to be updated. The instructions are not clear and not executable. Your WIFI connection is a lousy process. Today's technology does not require one to climb up ladders to obtain S/N and train devices. Very disappointed in product, customer support......returning 2 8550W and asking for my genies to be reinstalled.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply The Best I'm a professional door dealer who has been in business over 40 years and this is simply the best opener you can install in a residential application. Very Quiet , Powerful , and with the battery backup you will always get the door to work without using the emergency release , which confuses people when they have to use it or reconnecting after a power failure.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Quit working 5 years after installation Last week my overhead door wouldn't close all the way - stopped about 2 feet above the threshold. Garage door company came out and said it needed a new motherboard. Came back today to install and was told that this didn't fix the problem. Instead I was told that the motor went bad. This should not be happening to a garage door opener that I purchased 5 years ago (September 2012). I bought this model specifically because I believed it was top-of-the-line AND because I wanted the self-closing feature through the timer. I expected to get 10 - 15 years from this door opener. With that said, I will be contacting Liftmaster tomorrow to see what remedy they can provide for this inconvenience of not only needing a new garage door opener, but having someone remove the bad unit and install a new unit.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Can't Recommend WOW...way to noisy. It produces an annoying whine (caused by DC power, according to the installer). It is slow, causing the annoying whine to last even longer. I bought 3 of these and they all operate the same, so I'm sure that's how they are supposed to work. My wife wants me to dump them and go with Genie's.
