I've always used Genie garage door openers. I'm happy to say that this purchase was trouble free, easy to assemble and install (and) works perfect. I couldn't be happier.

This garage door opener is PERFECT for my needs...

I've had it about a week or so, and it has exceeded my expectations! This garage door opener is PERFECT for my needs; I can start it opening from half a block away, and smoothly just drive right in without having to stop in the driveway to wait for it to finish bringing the door up.
