Other than that it works very well and, as I said in the beginning, I really like it and would recommend it for anyone who needs a new opener. Installation was easy, in fact the hardest part was taking down all the mechanism associated with the old opener.
I would recommend adding the fingerprint keyless entry accessory to your cart - it works great.
I would have paid a little extra if the surge protection was integral to the opener assembly. The separate Chamberlain surge protector makes for a mess of wires around the outlet, making the outlet unusable for other things. I installed a dedicated electrical outlet near the motor.
Total "installation" took several hours, but it was a fun weekend project and I did it right. Removing the existing opener, surveying the wiring situation in the attic, and purchasing extra items, etc. accounted for much of the time.
Google "Owner's Manual GARAGE DOOR OPENER Model 3800PLD" if you want to see what I saw.
The manual is better than most, but I still have some comments.
Page 3: Preparing your garage door. Along with proper balance make sure your garage door is maintained: door screws are tight; rollers are lubricated (silicone); bearing plates are good; cables aren't frayed; etc.
Page 4: It says "Drill" but you will likely need one with a ½" chuck to handle the 3/4" bit. My corded was too small and had to use my Dewalt cordless. Also, ¾" metal bits do not come in typical bit sets - see my purchases below.
Page 5: It says 30 insulated staples and I received about 10 - not enough.
Page 6 and on: Pictures of hardware (e.g., screws) say actual size. They are not, but you should be able to interpret what they are calling for.
Page 6: Assy step 1 says to position collar screws up, but the diagram shows them facing out. It is best to install them facing up. If you install per the diagram you may need to follow step 1.4 where it says, "To allow access to the set screws it may be necessary to raise the door slightly in order to rotate the torsion bar (i.e., collar screws)."
Page 7: Instl step 1.4 says to ensure the collar does not touch bearing plate. There is no diagram describing a "bearing plate." The "bearing plate" is actually part of your garage door assembly - bent piece of sheet metal holding bearing that the torsion bar slides through. Also, it doesn't say it but slide the torsion bar into the motor shaft several inches - not just the ¾" distance of the half collar.
Page 7: Consider getting a torque wrench if you want to be careful about the 12-14 ft/lbs of torque.
Page 9: Instl step 4. Make sure you install the tension monitor high enough that it clears the door. Otherwise you may be ordering a new monitor at the outset.
Page 9: Instl step 4. I installed my LiftMaster on the right-side (looking out) so I needed to remove/replace the snap ring from the tension monitor. I happen to have a snap ring tools so this was easy. Others can use needle nose pliers and "open" rather than pinch or you can use small standard screwdriver.
Page 22: Do not confuse the opener's Purple learn (forces) button with a remote learn. When I programmed my Honda's Universal HomeLink remote I used the wall mounted "Program" (learn remote) button per the manual's instructions.
MY REASONS FOR MAKING THE PURCHASE
It all started after one of my garage door torsion springs broke. The failure of the torsion spring resulted in the torqueing of my garage door screw drive, making it shudder and shake every time I used it. The repairman replaced the torsion springs and recommended I replace my Genie with a Chamberlain and said my garage would be a good candidate for a LiftMaster. I have an 11 ½ ft ceiling and an 8' x 16' wood door. I installed a basketball hoop in the garage for my son and I know he occasionally hits the garage door opener so the LiftMaster seemed ideal for getting that opener contraption out of the way. It would cost about $100 to replace the screw track on my 2 year old $177 Genie so I opted to go ahead and make the leap.
I chose to spring for the keyless entry pad because I have a teenage son and his friends were always looking over his shoulder when he used the keypad entry. My wife said my son was showing his friends how cool the new fingerprint entry was the other day and one of the boys played with it a few minutes trying to get his fingerprint to work. Makes me wish the little used "Enroll" button was a covered by the protective sliding plate to discourage such curious behavior.
I also sprang for the surge protector because our neighborhood has its share of surges and I want to protect the "investment."
The deadbolt security feature is nice and I don't have to worry about burglars opening the centerline opener with a wire clothes hanger (YouTube "garage door break in").

It's a very well thought out product. Reminds me of Apple in that way. Lots of nice little features that you didn't expect. It's also more expensive like a Mac, but it's worth it. Very quiet and unobtrusive. Just sits quietly in the corner and does it's job. I have had ours for about a year now, and it's been flawless. I also recommend installing a set of Ball Bearing Rollers and a fingerprint Scanner, both available from Amazon.com. If you install new rollers, remove the side rails and slip them in. That way you won't have to de-tension the springs. The fingerprint scanner is nice if you have kids who forget passwords. The "motion detector" on the keypad is a wonderful idea. Makes it easy to take out the garbage as it turns on the lights for me as soon as I enter the garage.
Can't say enough about this opener. Especially after being so disappointed in the idrive I had purchased before. This one is in a league by itself. If you can afford the price tag, it's going to be the best opener you've ever had.
