This was one of the cheaper units on the website, but is feature-packed...

This was one of the cheaper units on the website, but is feature-packed. It can learn up to 7 remotes, and has a wireless keypad for mounting on the outside of the garage. It worked fine with my existing wiring. Very pleased.

This was easy to install and is super quiet - almost as quiet as a belt drive!

This was easy to install and is super quiet - almost as quiet as a belt drive! Instructions were clear and concise and all pieces and parts were separately labeled and packaged. Highly recommend this opener!

It is really nice to operate the garage door and not hear the noise through all the house, specially in the middle of the night. Instructions were clear and easy to follow.

Very easy to install and it operates much quieter that older chain drives, much like a belt drive, and easy pairing of remotes.

I don't have to worry about ever getting locked out!

I've had this opener for only a few weeks; so far, so good. It is very quiet. I like the exterior key pad feature, so I don't have to worry about ever getting locked out!

We thought the directions were well done, the boxes of parts were well labeled, and it helped to watch a YouTube installation video too before we started...

We bought this item as we have a two door garage and the second door opener that still works has an older Genie chain drive opener with Intellicode so I wanted to use same wireless code box for both units and existing car remotes from the old unit. This new unit is much quieter than the old one. We thought the directions were well done, the boxes of parts were well labeled, and it helped to watch a YouTube installation video too before we started. It did take several hours to do the job but it wasn't very hard. We would have liked to have reused some of the parts from the old unit but they were different enough that we had to replace almost everything. We've only used it for a couple weeks and it seems to be working fine. We like that there are lights on both ends so it provides more light in the garage and the wall control unit has an extra button to just for turning the lights on an off.

Packaging by Genie was great! All of the parts are numbered in numbered boxes and well detailed in the instructions... if I could install this by myself, anyone can!
