Default Garage Door Opener again...

What do you think about this garage opener? Should we buy it now?

Excellent unit. I got it when it was $249 ~ a year ago, I believe but i have never seen it come down to that price again. We love our's, very quiet and the auto light feature is very handy.

Would the 3/4 Horsepower of this particular unit be suitable for a double-sized garage door?

More than enough, even with an insulated double size door.

if your door is properly balanced, there is barely any lift power needed - should be able to move it with a couple of fingers

Great opener! We just installed it a week ago....Love that there is a motion sensor in the unit so that you don't have to fumble for the light switch in the garage (just a little perk)

I guess if you don't want to have the pressure of buying during a sale, you could also get the Chamberlain version from Home Depot with a regular price of $5 more...
