Rated 2 out of 5 by from great opener but bad control The motor is very quiet and works well but the MyQ part of it is not great. I used to be able to control the door along with my other smart devises but for what ever reason Liftmaster does not want any other company to be able to control the functions and forces you to use their app. If i could buy the same opener without the MyQ part I would swap out this unit today. For that reason I would not recommend this product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Door Opened on Own and Stayed Open I went into the garage this morning to discover that one of my garage doors was open, apparently all night! I have an 8500 on each of my two garage doors - one continues to work fine (automatically closing the door in 1, 5 and 10 minutes in accordance with setting on the wall controller), but the wall controller for the door that was open does not close the door automatically on any of these settings. It closes the door manually. What is going on? My units are only about 3 years old. I see from other reviews that my experience with the 8500 is not unique. I have been telling my friends how great the 8500 is, but I'm now concerned that the 8500 may be a very expensive, defective, short-life system!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So far so good, but MyQ has me concerned I've had the 8500 opener for a few months and it's a really nice piece of gear. The only qualm I have is that it seems to be when, not if, the MyQ controller goes bad and leaves the door open for all and sundry. From the reviews, the controller starts to go bad around 2-3 years of use. I never had to worry about my 20+ year-old Stanley opener leaving my garage door open in the event of failure, so it's extremely disconcerting to learn that "The last garage door opener you'll ever need." (quote from installer) has this issue. Liftmaster - I was on a forum where a member was asking about garage door opener replacement options and the 8500 was suggested as a possible. I didn't know about the issues until I saw this link in the forum so I could only offer that I've been pleased with my unit so far. Because of the MyQ concerns, however, he and two other members who were also looking for replacements all decided to go with another style and brand. This MyQ issue is losing you business. Is there a permanent fix to correct the problem? If so, what's the forecasted eta for implementation? Lastly, will there be a retrofit for those of us with older model MyQ controllers?
