It opens the garage door easily and quietly. I had Lowe's coordinate installation so I cannot comment on the ease of that. The opener itself surprised me at how quiet it really is. I am happy with the purchase.

Bought this for my wife for Christmas and she loves it!

Bought this for my wife for Christmas and she loves it! Installed it in just a few hours by myself (removed a noisy Craftsman and replaced with this genie). Install was pretty straightforward and the instructions were very easy to follow. All the parts are labeled and in color coded bags to make the installation a breeze. The belt drive and the motor are very smooth and quiet. It included 2 car remotes and a wireless keypad, which my wife loves so she doesn't have to give her keys to the children to get their toys out of the garage! The remotes were easy to program and work great. Everything about this product has been nothing short of wonderful so far.

Performed as expected and then some...

Performed as expected and then some. The light shining back towards the rear of the garage is a big plus. The downfall to these newer style openers, you can not use a simple wall mounted 1 button switch. You have to use the 3 button switch. Also, we use to have a key opener outside the garage. that also got eliminated due to not being able to operate with simple 2 wire on/off appications. had to go buy a keypad and program. VERY easy to Install. VERY minimal nut/bolts, but the metal bar isn't the thickest or best quality. Just snap together type installation. Great opener and does the job.

The Genie 3 button garage door opener is nice and small in size with highly functional features. It was easy to program and customize to my garage door so I was able to put it to quick use. I am quite pleased with my Home Depot online shopping experience and I had great ease in picking up my garage door opener at the HD store of my choice.

The performance is excellent. Promptly opens and closes the garage doors with ease. The look is beautiful. Convenience and ease of the wall panels is perfectly located in my garage in case I choose not to use the remotes while working in the garage.

Lifetime on the motor, 15 yrs on the belt, how can you go wrong??

Super quiet!! Took me awhile to install by myself (probably 3-4 hrs). All the bags were color coded, nice.

Had some problems wiring it correctly, called Genie, they walked through the problem with me, piece of cake, very helpful/friendly. Lifetime on the motor, 15 yrs on the belt, how can you go wrong??

The belt and quiet drive motor is excellent. It's super quiet...

Bought this to replace a broken, loud, chain drive motor. The belt and quiet drive motor is excellent. It's super quiet, I can't tell when the door is opening and our bedroom is above the garage. The wireless keypad for outside is great. It was easy to assign the garage signal to my car (with instructions, it's a bit different setup than others). Installation and setup for distance was easy. Not need to setup force or speed.

RUSS | November 23, 2013

This unit is very quiet and sturdy...

After reading the reviews, I was a little hesitant to tackle the installation by myself. But it was not all that hard. I am a perfectionist when it comes to hiding wires and making everything look as professional as possible so it took me a little longer to finish than others have said they did it in. My old Genie was 37 years old and so I had to put in the Safe-T-Beams also along with new wiring. This unit is very quiet and sturdy. Love the motion lights.

We got the Genie garage door opener because the one we had installed on it was wearing out and not opening the heavy wooden garage door all the way, especially in colder weather. The new one was installed this morning--with an outdoor temperature of 18 degrees and has opened the door all the way without a hitch so far. We are pleased.

Easy to install. Works very quietly. The two lights really light up the garage and have a sensor that detects movement-a very nice feature. I'm impressed with the quality and value. I would recommend reading through all the installation literature as there is an insert that makes the programming much easier than the manual.

We bought 2 of these remotes, and they are awesome! Love the small size - and the fact that they can be attached to both a visor AND keychain! Programming was a breeze. My husband, who is not at ALL technical, programmed the 2 remotes on both garage doors in less than 10 minutes! Would highly recommend getting rid of those old clunckers and replacing them with this nice sized remote!

Extremely quiet, fast, and easy to use...

The garage opener itself is well worth the money that we paid for it. It is extremely quiet, fast, and easy to use. The initial installation was a little tricky since we were replacing an original unit that came with the house. But I would highly recommend this unit.

NH-Flyer | October 21, 2013

The programming of the unit was simple and quick...

This garage door opener replaced a 15 year old 1/2 HP Sears unit that the remote interface had failed. It would have been $100 for a new circuit board to fix; so, for only a few dollars more this Genie unit with a 3/4 HP motor and drive belt was purchased. The installation went smoothly, it only took a couple hours to remove and replace the old unit. The programming of the unit was simple and quick, better than I've seen on any opener I'd installed in the past. The biggest surprise was the noise; this unit is absolutely quiet; the only noise was the rollers on the door when moving in the track. I was concerned about the life of the drive belt but it is guaranteed for 15 years; probably longer than I will need.

It is SO quiet ... We LOVE this garage door opener!

My husband was able to install this alone with ease in about 3 hours. It is SO quiet, our kids no longer get woken up by the door going up and down in the mornings. Their bedrooms sit right above the garage and it's perfectly quiet so as not to disturb them. We LOVE this garage door opener! The wall console also has a lock feature on it that we turn on at night to ensure no one can get into our garage using the keypad on the outside. If you're looking for a great opener for a good price, that is quiet, you've found it!

I cannot believe how quiet this opener is! This replaced a chain drive opener and the difference is amazing. I can't hear the opener inside the house. I also like that the motor slows the door down just as it closes, so it doesn't slam it into the ground. The home link feature is nice so I can now use the buttons in my vehicle to open the door.

We hired an installer through the Home Depot store who arrived on time, assembled and attached the belt drive garage door opener perfectly, then cleaned up all materials! There was some difficulty with programming the door, but he made it happen. It runs so smooth and quietly compared to the chain drive we had before. Genie works with our car's Home-Link system and we are very happy overall.

Much quieter ... Loved all of the features and the small remotes...

Much quieter than the screw driven one it replaced. It does take a second for it to start moving but it is fast and smooth. Loved all of the features and the small remotes. I removed the old one and installed the new one by myself in about 3 1/2 hours. It was a little complicated to sync to my GMC Acadia and took looking on you tube to get it figured out. Would recommend to anyone looking for a quiet feature packed opener.

DJRRYAN | August 11, 2013

This belt drive opener is SO wonderfully quiet!

Silent Max 1000 was easy to install as I replaced a 10 year old screw drive Genie opener and all the previously drilled holes for the mounting brackets and wiring were reusable. Also of help, not that I am an expert, but through four moves over a 25 year period I've installed 12 garage door openers for myself and friends. This belt drive opener is SO wonderfully quiet! My wife and I drive an electric car so we are used to the quiet on the road ... now we get to depart and return from a home with a quiet garage. The directions were good for the installation but I found the written instructions for the external keypad programming to be inadequate. By going to the product web site and following the video tutorials I was able to get the keypad programmed correctly. After a week of usage we are quite pleased with the performance and especially the quiet.

GrandmaMary | July 16, 2013

This model is a dream...

The only reason I rated "ease of installation" fair is because my husband was actually scared of attempting it and fooled around until we finally got a friend over who put it right up (with my husband holding the tools for him!). We had a Genie Screw drive that was very loud and us not thinking to lubricate the rollers made it even louder. This model is a dream. One everything had been oiled back up, you can't hear the door at all. Our bedroom is right above the garage and hubby never hears me leave in the morning. You CAN'T go wrong with this model. Just can't be done. We've only had it up a few weeks so I can testify to the longevity of it, but it's a pleasure to own. I have to look back to make sure it is closing, it is so quiet. No, we haven't programed the thingy that tells you if the door shut but a turn of the head tells you. I am used to my homelink in my car opening the door and I miss that because with it I could open the door a block down, and the opener that comes with unit, you must be within range almost in front of the door. This weekend, I will program the homelink button in the car! It can't be that hard. I've done it before! If you are in doubt....do it!

Really great - of course David (Pro installer contracted by Lowes' did it) could not have been easier! Took me breakfast and 2 cups of coffee to get it done (I Was in the kitchen) but worth the (non) effort. I really recommend the Lowes' installer service.

Genie products and I have been together for a long long time, I recently upgraded to the SilentMax 1000 in hopes of making a quieter garage experience and was pleasantly surprised at quietness, ease of operation and installation, did it myself in less than 1 hour removing old one and installing new one.

Genie stands behind products, the wall console "button" quit after 1 month, the warranty was great, they talked to me for less than 10 minutes and had another button console on it's way to me for replacement. I couldn't be happier with their products and service. Highly recommended!

This is near silent...convenient and understandable...

I bought this at my local HD after my ancient chain-drive died suddenly. Wish I would not have waited. This is near silent...convenient and understandable. Only had two issues related to the instructions during installation. One was putting the drive on correctly...next, the push button remote entry - figuring out how to set that up was a bit of a challenge.

Overall...once set up and installed it is quiet, easy to use and safe!

This model is the best value for your dollar...

I purchased this model as a direct replacement for the worn out 25 yr. old screw-drive model I had. The installation was simple and straightforward made possible by following the detailed instructions. Once installed, set-up programming was a breeze. The unit is very quiet and automatically controls the force and speed of door operation. It has all of the right safety features. The motion-controlled, dual, rear-mounted lights are a very nice feature as well. This model is the best value for your dollar. I am very satisfied with my choice.

Very quiet (which is why i purchased this after research), no speed issues, plenty of power...

Ordering and shipping went fine, got a great deal. No spare screws were included and one of them was stamped wrong and unusable, had to improvise. Instructions are well laid out and easy to follow, took a while since it was my first. Also did not come with a pin for the front of the beam above the door, not sure why, also had to improvise with hardware store parts. Very quiet (which is why i purchased this after research), no speed issues, plenty of power. Did i mention it's quiet?

This product does what it claims... Solve(s) frequency interference... excellent instructions...

This product does what it claims, and that is solve frequency interference. If your opener range is way less than it used to be and works sporadically it can be caused by something in your home, or something in your neighborhood. Talk to your neighbors. The other major brand out there operates their product at 315Mhz. The Genie while costs more than I would have liked works at 315 and 390 automatically and results in a happy life.

The basic mechanics of this install were simple with excellent instructions. The programming was a little tricky, you have to read the page very carefully.

Maso | April 03, 2013

This unit was an upgrade from an old 1/2HP chain drive that finally bit the dust. It is a significant improvement, in many ways:

1.) It's really quiet. The bedroom is directly above the garage, and other than a slight sound that the door itself makes, it's not obvious when it goes up or down. Much quiter than the old chain-drive.

2.) Great light. The old unit had a bare bulb, situated so that you could see it as you drove in. This means it shone in your eyes but didn't really illuminate the back wall. This unit has two light sockets on the opposite side, so it actually lightens up the garage in a much more meaningful manner.

3.) The Closed Confirm feature is surprisingly addictive. I thought that I wouldn't care about it at all, but when I leave the house with the non Closed Confirm remote, I find myself wanting to look back in the mirror to make sure the garage has closed for sure. I never did that before.

4.) Installation was easy. But it took me ~7 hrs (see below).

The installation itself went well, but I lost a number of extra hours because my garage is on the same circuit as a couple of bathrooms, and therefore has GFCI protection. Every time I went to close the door, the circuit would pop. Eventually I solved the problem by using a 3-prong to 2-prong outlet adapter, eliminating the third prong entirely.

This opener is what you would expect from Genie..Great. The unit is so quiet you can actually talk while it's operating. It was easy to install. I did it alone. The closed confirm remote was worth the wait to order on line. It's save me several return trips to my home to check if the door was closed. Shipping was a day a head of projected delivery date. Only 3 days for ground. I shopped several stores prior to my purchase. Price at The Home Depot was the most economical. I'd buy the same opener again if I had a need.

The unit is quite and smooth even with a large, heavy insulated door. It works well even at -25F below...

After a Genie screw drive unit failed after ~6 years of service, I was a bit hesitant to replace it with another from the same manufacture (only 6 years?) However, the root problem of the failure was the screw drive which was due to the very cold temperatures around here. Perhaps the screw drive unit just wasn't the right unit for the job.

What was needed was something with a belt drive and more motor power. This unit appeared to be a fit.

My father in-law and I are mechanically inclined and have installed many garage doors and openers before. It was easy to figure out what was correct by looking at the markings on the parts. However, they sometimes didn't agree with the installation instructions.

After ~60 minutes the unit was installed and didn't work. The next error in the installation instructions was found: The wiring in the instructions was incorrect but was correct in the trouble shooting guide. A simple change in wiring and the unit was working.

The unit is quite and smooth even with a large, heavy insulated door. It works well even at -25F below, which is something the screw drive unit didn't do.

I'm very pleased with the installation process, cost, value, and operation...

Both of my garage door openers need to be replaced, and I decided to upgrade to the much quieter belt drive systems. I couldn't be happier with the results. I'm pretty handy, but I'd never installed a garage door opener before. The first door took almost 3 hours (including removal of the old opener), mostly because I took my time so I didn't miss any steps. The second door took just over an hour. With the use of two ladders, I was able to install both units by myself. The remotes were extremely easy to program and work great. Operation is whisper quiet, and the doors open faster than my old units as well. Recommendation: try and re-use as much of the old work as possible...I was able to re-use all of the old wiring. The brackets that attach on the garage door were identical so I wasted time taking them off the first door before I realized I could re-use them. Made the second door go much quicker. Overall I'm very pleased with the installation process, cost, value, and operation.

It took me longer to pull out the step stool to push the button on the opener attached to garage ceiling than to program both remotes. Onced I pressed that button, and the button on the remote, it was done! The actual process took about 20 seconds max for both remotes. Easy like Sunday morning! Great value!

SaveMoneyDoItYourself | January 24, 2013

I am very impressed with how quite this garage door opener is...

First off, I am very impressed with how quite this garage door opener is. I also appreciate its ability to slow down just prior to reaching it's up or down limits. Going from an old Stanley 1/2 HP chain drive to the Genie 3/4 HP belt drive this is a huge upgrade. I went with this model for 3 reasons: I wanted a quiet garage door opener, the Genie product was less expensive than comparable Craftsman products, and all the reviews (including Genie) claimed it was easier to install. Regarding the installation, instruction guides could use a little more clarity, but a simple YouTube search cleared up any confusion. The project took me about 5 hours to complete. However, i'm probably slower than most and I could not use my existing garage door opener braces for the Genie model. As a result, I had to fabricate a new brace with angle iron and re-measure everything before I could continue the project.

Once I got the garage door opener up and running it was a dream. I appreciated the wireless keypad entry which saved me from having to run more wire and made installation a little easier. The garage door remotes are relatively easy to program, but the HomeLink system for my car took a couple tries to figure out. All that to say I would highly recommend this product. Also, if price is an issue, as it was with me, Lowe's accepts competitor coupons so I was able to use one which saved me an additional 15% off (Orchard Hardware). The best Lowe's coupon only saves 10%.

I replaced a 20 yr old Genie screwdrive with this model. None of the previous attach points were able to be reused except for the fitting on the door itself. In spite of this I found the installation to be quite easy. In particular assembling the unit (before mounting it in the garage) was extremely easy because there are very few parts. I also liked the one sheet installation instruction chart; much easier to use than a multi-page manual. The color coded parts bags saved time in identifying the correct parts and are a great idea. The unit is very quite and extra remotes are inexpensive. I have no way to judge reliability yet, which is really the most important consideration to me, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it lasts as long as the Genie I replaced.

This garage opener was a great purchase. It is so quiet that you can barely hear it open and close. Another great feature is the remote door opener for the car. There is an audible beep when the door closes and an alarm that sounds if you drive too far away from the door and is hasn't closed.

Our old one went bad and this one works great. No problem to install with the existing garage door. All came as described on Amazon.

Unit works like a charm, best thing Ive done in home improvment...

Just installed silent max 1000. Replaced 20 year old chain drive unit, different brand. Took about 3 hours, by myself. First time replacing garage door opener. Only thing instructions lacked was belt tension adjustment. Read other reviews before buying and paid close attension this. Unit works like a charm, best thing Ive done in home improvment. Super quiet. Got a price to replace old unit - $400.00! This was half that, tax included. Would highly recommend to anyone.

I had it running in only two hours. It's the quietest garage door I have ever experienced...

The new Genie garage door I installed is a replacement of an old Genie screw drive. The new Genie is a belt drive. It was an installation. I had it running in only two hours. It's the quietest garage door I have ever experiences. I am very happy with the product and would recommend it to anyone.
