Have had this on my Amazon wish list for a while and just noticed today that the price dropped to $199.99. History on CCC shows usual price of ~$230 so it seems like this is the lowest it has ever been.

You know everything doesn't have to be thrown away. You can just order a replacement belt, it's not the end of the world. And early belt drives DID have this issue, the material science has advanced and newer belt drives are "supposedly" better.

My super duper chain (which was like $500) is coming up on 14 years and it sounds like a nascar race, and it has since flexed so I will have to remove a bunch of links, but this one has wifi and much better automatic controls (like shut after x min), not to mention battery backup.

It's not like things don't need maint and last forever. Heck in 10 years wifi standards are going to change before the belt drive craps out!

That is because this has a DC motor (which is better BTW) and there is no standard for HP ratings for DC motors, so it's an equivalent to an AC motor. So unless you are raising wooden barn doors that are terrible imbalanced you should be OK. In fact HP is sort of useless because they should be rated by pulling force (Newtons) which is what matters but we cling to these old measurement habits.

14 years on mine so far... it will probably break now that I mentioned it.

The first review that I saw (fairly long one, updated) has an interesting fact -- the "1 1/4 HPS" does NOT mean 1.25 horsepower. The motor is closer to 1/2HP apparently, and Chamberlain is giving its equivalent power rating due to the mechanism.

Worth checking out the reviews to see what's up.

Thanks! I was waiting for this price for a year, but ended up getting the HD950WF [homedepot.com]from HD during BF for $244

Will HD give me a price credit if I call or go to the store? Although it has a different model number, it's the same unit as the WD1000WF as can be seen in the owner's manual [chamberlain.com] they share. From the replacement parts list, you can see the only difference is the lens cover.

Just had this installed last month. Super quiet and very smooth. Wifi setup was a breeze and works very well. Very happy with it.

installed a belt drive chamberlain last year and love it. my bedroom is above the garage and the old chain drive would wake u up anytime someone went in/out of the garage.

fyi - if ur going after quiet, make sue u upgrade to nylon rollers on the garage door vs the standard steel rollers. also helps keep noise down.

100% this. Nylon rollers make a dramatic improvement. I have a set that I received used from a friend who installs garage doors and they are still working great 14 years later. All the homes in my neighborhood came with steel wheels. I can hear my neighbors doors open and close from several homes away. I can barely hear mine outside the driveway.

OK, this has lifetime belt and motor warranty:

Warranty Information
Lifetime Motor
Lifetime Belt
5 Year Parts
1 Year Accessories

Also: I saw a note that this may not be compatible w/ all homelink devices, and you may have to buy a bridge so YMMV.
