Just installed this unit two weeks now, very easy to install, programming the remotes was easier. Enough power for my heavy door. Quiet. So good so far.
The safety features seemed to work well, and I tested them thoroughly because the Sears opener I bought 20 years ago occasionally let the door close even when the optical beam was blocked (design flaw). At that time, a child in a nearby city died from a garage door opener (brand unknown). So do NOT bypass the safety beam! A tall garage door may need the overhead unit installed farther back (with optional extension kit for the rail & chain), but the wires for the optical safety beam system may not be long enough then, unless run diagonally along the ceiling. No lubrication needed for rail, unlike with my old Sears opener. Assembly was straightforward, and I didn't even have to adjust the downward limit of door travel. The online owner's manual says clamp vise grips near the front of the overhead rail to keep the trolley from sliding forward during cable installation, but the printed manual says just stick a screwdriver through a pair of holes there.

GARAGE DOOR OPENER WAS PERTTY EASY FOR ME TO PUT IN , HOW EVER THE SMALL OPENER REMOTE WAS BROKE AND GAVE ME A **** OF A TIME TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT WAS THE MATTER WITH IT...SEARS IS SENDING ME A NEW ONE UNDER WARANTEE
I bought two of these openers online and then picked them up at my local store. I installed the first one by myself in about two hours. It was a lot easier than I thought that it would be. I took a break and came back to install the second opener and after already assembling the rail, I realized that the inner trolley was missing. I feared that Sears might not take it back or that they would have to order the part and delay my installation. I took the who thing back with the assembled rail and Sears had no problem taking it. The second unit is now installed and works as great as the first one. My only gripe is the price for the 8ft door extension.
It took around 2hrs. from start to finish, nothing major a do it yourselfer couldn'nt figure out. Read instructions and take your time. I was more than happy it was on sale and it appears to run very smooth and quiet so far!
Installation and programming fairly simple. Completely satisfied with this opener and glad I purchased with the complete accessory package. Plus, two lights on opener adds much needed lighting to a larger garage.
Purchased and installed April 2013. So far the motor function as expected. New Transmitter/Receiver 315 MHz frequency are not compatible with older controllers or the HomeLink in vehicles. Therefore the 3 Stars rating.
