Rated 5 out of 5 by from 8550 is Quiet Paid for professional installation. Took over 90 minutes. Replaced a Craftman model that didn't work when temps dropped below 20 degrees in the winter. New model works great, setting up WIFI was a little painful and they app is no frills, but nice feature to use my smart phone to determine if door is open/closed remotely, be able to open the door anytime, battery back-up, quiet. Only had it installed a day, but so far impressed. I suggest LiftMaster improve MWQ WIFI setup and mobile app interface.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good motor but unreliable WiFi connectivity I recently got this garage opener installed. It has a quiet motor and good feel to it. There are however some problems with this product - 1. The WiFi connectivity is unreliable and the unit loses connection to the MyQ app. I've have had to reset the WiFi connection twice in as many days since installation. If a user decides to go out without any house keys or the separate opener, they may be in for a surprise to find the MyQ app has lost connectivity. 2. The homelink bridge that comes with this unit has poor signal reception. The reception with the main unit is good but since both of my cars use homelink, it needs the bridge. I wish the bridge functionality was included in the unit so that users don't have to connect and setup a separate homelink bridge unit which is sub-par.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LiftMaster 8550W Very quiet, easy to program with homelink. Love tge features except the MyQ app (and wifi). Would have given it a "5" but the Wi-Fi feature is awful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Opener This opener is quiet and works as advertised. The wifi setup was simple. With the unit connected to wifi, I can check the status of the door (as well as open or close it) while away. The app tells me how many minutes the door has been open or closed as well. The Homelink setup worked with my car. I saw that others had issues with the Homelink setup, but it went smoothly with my vehicle. I am pleased with all of the functionality and quality.
