Was looking for a garage door opener and this one came up and looked like a good deal. I am unsure about the correctness of the 2HP but it seemed to be a good deal for the price.

Can you post where a new one is cheaper?

Think they had a lot of problems and returns on this model. No longer available at HD, though they are still selling the accessories. Hopefully they are trying to work out the kinks which they encountered with this 1st generation. I was seriously looking at this when it first came out as I have a garage which doesn't have electricity and they claimed that it would run for quite awhile on the lithium battery. But after reading all the reviews at HD and Amazon on this model decided to wait

it was onsale/clearance (brand new one) in home-depot BM store for $99~$139 for awhile last year .
Homedepot already removed the item from their system, check your local HD store to see if they still have it

I like ryobi tools, and don't mind refurbished things, but can't recommend this place. I've ordered cpo things from them twice, and both times they were clear returns for clear reasons. One was a gas string trimmer that had a totally fouled carb, and the second was an orbital sander that had about 3/32 of runout in the pad. Both obvious defects that shouldn't have left the store without being addressed. The only thing that they certify is that the product was previously owned.

The price on this dropped to $129, but is out of stock for pre-owned. Brand new is on sale at DTO for $200.

Looking through the reviews, I'd have to say that a lot of the problems are user induced errors. Probably half of the people that did the install have no business working on anything themselves. The few professional installs have no issues at all. The one guy that couldn't get it to work with homelink finally found the directions in the manual later on and updated his review to it works perfect. You only need one logon for the app and people are trying to use multiple. Stay away from the vacation button.
Make sure your sensors aren't blinded by sunlight. I'd still give this a try marked down to $200 new if I had a need for a garage door opener at all.
