Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stopped working after 12 months Completely went dead after only 1 year. Had a craftsman opener for 20 years. Never had an issue. This expensive unit died in 12 months. Customer service was terrible. I had already done all the troubleshooting to find that it was the logic board. I called Chamberlin/Liftmaster and spoke with a rep that sounded like she was drunk. She had me disconnecting the belt, trolley, etc. and was reading from the same troubleshooting list I had just done. After 20 min of trying to follow her "drunk" instructions she said it was the logic board! Imagine that! It is covered by warranty, but 5 - 7 business day to get the board and I have to install! Unit is a piece of crap and customer service sucks! DO NOT BUY this opener!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Upgrade from a 1987 OverHead opener OMG, the quiet operation of the 8550W 3/4hp belt drive with battery back up... Loving it! It's amazing how obsolete manuals are, google that ____ or youtube it.. I am impressed with being able to open and close my garage doors with my Note 8 not to mention the ability to monitor the doors from across the spectrum. I had no problem with syncing my Ram truck to the system, thank you LiftMaster...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A Huge Flaw The opener itself is great. It is extremely quiet and looks good. However, it is not compatible with most vehicles built in garage door openers. My vehicle from 2012 does not work with this opener without buying extra parts for my car, because the vehicle is already 2 generations behind. I understand the need for security, but updating the security system so fast is frustrating for owners. It is a great opener, but is extremely frustrating to actually use.
