Liftmaster vs. Overhead Door?
I'm looking to have 2 garage door openers installed, and I've been looking around for the best option. Heard enough not to go with Craftsman, and I'm uneasy buying from Home Depot or Lowe's, so I have been talking to some local dealers. But I'm not sure if I should go with Liftmaster or Overhead Door (which makes Genie, from what I have been told).
I want belt drive openers with DC motors, since there is a room over the garage, so that means I am looking at the Liftmaster 3850 (no price yet, liftmaster.com says it is DC motor) or 3820 ($365 installed, nothing about DC motor, does anyone know?). For Overhead Door, I am looking at their Phantom model (also DC motor, $420 installed).
I've seen a lot of posts on this forum that seem to speak well of Liftmaster/Chamberlain, but I haven't really seen much at all about Overhead Door/Genie, and I'm curious about that. Does anyone have any recommendations about my options? Quiet operation is probably the most important feature to me, and I'm willing to drop a little more money for a reliable unit that pays for itself in the long run.
