Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Worthy of the Name LiftMaster Purchased (3) 8850s as an upgrade and could not be more disappointed. They are very difficult to program to our vehicles and the remotes are quirky. One remote started opening two doors at the same time and would not stop (according to the LiftMaster Tech until I reprogrammed the opener, then all hand helds and all cars. I have never been able to get it to work with the X5, even after buying a repeater/extender as recommended by LiftMaster. Their tech assist folks are always overwhelmed because Liftmaster just isn't as good as they were in the past...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Far so good!!! This Liftmaster 8550 replaces a Liftmaster Formula 1 garage door opener. The main reason I wanted the 8550 was for the battery back-up feature. Quite often leave the house via the garage to walk the dogs and forget the house keys!! The installer from Automatic Doorz was excellent. Install of the MyQ App took all off a few minutes and was raring to go! Set up the Homelink on our 2-2016 Subarus with ease (watched a youtube video) So far very happy

Rated 1 out of 5 by from logic board repeated failures logic board repeatedly fails, waiting on 3rd one now, I have a surge protector on the outlet the opener is connected to, it's never tripped, was professionally installed a year ago, gotten to the point I hit the opener and cross my fingers, half the time I just leave the door disconnected from the opener and manually open it, it's a hassle but at least I know I won't get locked out due to error 1-5 code

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Trustworthy I had this professionally installed about two and a half years ago and it has failed at least three times. Twice the sensors needed to be adjusted and now the logic board has gone out. Think twice before you give this model a try. I can deal with it but if my wife or cleaning lady have to try and shut it if I'm away then it will be a real problem.
