Does anyone recommend any economical choices for garage door installation?
Best is to ask friends referral. Also make sure add steel on top of garage door. I need redo the steel job because first installer didn't. And it stop working after all be winter.

How quite? Our current t garage is loud and I'm going to change the door soon. Other than being quite, no other benefits?
I went from chain to belt and the room above the garage is now basically silent when opening the double wide garage... before it shook like a mofo.

best $ spent on a new home :)

Serious question, I read that myQ was opening the garage door randomly, is this still the case? Or does it effect this unit?
From my understanding, this is something to do with the optional myQ Wifi hub, and the phone app that controls the door.

I have a Liftmaster belt drive (similar to chamberlain, except it is the commercial version and tracks are usually one piece instead of multiple pieces) and it replaced an old Craftsman chain drive. It was super quiet compared to my old chain drive. I was always skeptical with Belt drives back in the days, but then when they switched to lifetime warranties on the belts, I figured, nothing to lose. My opener is an older model (I installed it a few years ago), and it does use a standard AC motor, so there is some vibrations from the sudden start/stop actions. BUT I installed a newer Chamberlain unit for my sister about 2 years ago (similar to this one), and this one is practically silent. Many of the new ones, come with DC motors (you can check on Chamberlain web site - the B750C does have DC motor). This makes all the difference. The motor starts real slowly, so no jerking movements or vibrations, then speeds up to open, and then slows down again as it nears full open. So there is no abrupt vibrations from the start/stop.

Yes it's very quiet. Mine has battery back up and battery is dead now. Sears is gone. Can I get replacement battery in USA Sears?
Most of these Garage door openers using DC motors and integrated Battery backups use standard 12V SLA batteries with F1 terminals (like alarm systems, UPS, etc..). You don't need to buy craftsman batteries. For example, the Chamberlain C730C uses a 12V 5Ah battery. So anything from 12V 4Ah to 12V 7Ah is common on these units. I don't know where you live, but in Montreal, you can easily find these batteries at places like Addison or Madisson electronics shops or many others. Otherwise, Magnacharge, definitely carries them. Remove your existing battery and check what you have in your model. They sell anywhere from $17 to $30 depending on where you buy them.

Thanks OP. Perfect timing , was looking to buy one this weekend. As a side note , I would just PM at Lowe’s and not ask for the extra 10%. Right now at Lowe’s if you spend 250 you get a coupon for $50 off your next purchase between nov 14-28 or something like that . Just an FYI
