So quiet that the dogs don't even bark when the garage door opens...

It is so quiet that the dogs don't even bark when the garage door opens. I wish I had gotten it sooner

The installation was simple and easy...

Went from a chain to the belt and it's so much quieter and faster. The installation was simple and easy. I'd recommend this to anybody.

Nice job Genie folks...

After 23 years my Genie screw drive opener decided it was tired and gave up the ghost. Went to Home Depot and looked over what they had and thought this SilentMax 1000 sounded like it would work fine for my application. I’ve had chain drives, screw drives and tape drives but never a belt drive but thought it should quiet with a belt. Just hope the belt lasts a long time, which it should since it’s steel reinforced. This was definitely the easiest installation of an opener I’ve ever done. Went together easy, mounted easy and setup was very easy. Some things actually do get better over time. The first time I used it I was very surprised by how quiet it is. So if you worry about not hearing the door open in the middle of the night, this thing is probably gonna make you worry a lot more. A nice feature that should have been implemented years ago is the front facing light bulbs. Most people walk to the front of their vehicle to enter their home and now I can see. Also like that the door slows down as it closes and opens to it full extent. Doesn’t have the abrupt stop action like before. Nice job Genie folks.

The soft close/open feature is great... It is also very quiet...

If you follow the instructions it is easy to install. The belt is contained inside the rail so it doesn't sag like other current belt drives. The soft close/open feature is great for setting the door to close tightly. It is also very quiet...

I've owned a number of garage door openers for two doors over the last 30 years. None has ever been as quiet as this one. I'd recommend this to anyone.
