Star Rating Based on over 220 actual reviews from Home Depot and Chamberlain.com.
From the Manufacturer:
The Chamberlain B750 features an ultra-quiet, extra strong steel-reinforced belt drive for stability and smart technology that gives you complete control of your garage. With the Chamberlain MyQ App, you can get real-time alerts, open, close, and know the status of your garage door. The notifications are sent directly to your phone where you gain full access of your garage door and more—from anywhere.
From Garage How To:
If you need a quiet, strong garage door opener, the Chamberlain B750 is a solid choice. This model is powered by a quiet, energy-efficient DC motor with the lifting equivalent of a 3/4 HP AC motor.
Most modern garage door openers are using DC motors to not only save energy, but to put more power in a smaller package. They are also very quite.
Unless you have a non-standard, high-ceiling garage, everything you need for installation on a 7 foot tall garage door is included. It is a very nice device that can do a lot more relative to its size. Set up, programming, and connection to WiFi is pretty straight forward. If you feel like you're in over your head on the technical stuff, ask a 14 year old!
If you aren't reusing mounting hardware from the opener you are replacing, count on 3-4 hours for installation and programming. SMART TIP: Getting help from a friend or family member makes for easier installation.
The opener uses the Chamberlain’s MyQ mobile app that communicates directly with your Android or iOS device (phone or tablet). This means you can monitor, open or close your garage door from anywhere you have an internet connection. Think you left the garage door open? Just check your MyQ app and close the door if necessary.
NOTE: As of February 2018, the MyQ app does not offer multi-user support. In other words, if you want two people to have access via their smartphone, you must share the same login credentials.
If your vehicle is equipped with the Homelink system, you may be able to program the built-in buttons to open your garage door without a remote. Some vehicles require Chamberlain's compatibility bridge to work properly. Go here to learn more.
Out of the box, the Chamberlain B750 works with 7 foot tall garage doors. For taller garage doors, you need to purchase and install the 8 foot or 10 foot rail extension kit.
Note: If you are just building your garage and have the opportunity to use an 8 foot tall garage door, do it. Especially if you have a larger SUV, or you think there is the possibility that someone, at some time in the future, may buy your house.
Bottom Line: The Chamberlain B750 is an easy-to-install, very quiet, powerful and reliable garage door opener you can control from anywhere in the world via Chamberlain's MyQ smartphone app. If you wish to see more technical details, please click the Tech Specs tab.

The rating of this product was a result of consideration of over 220 customer reviews. Here are some of the comments on the product.
“This garage door opener is well built, with quality construction. I really enjoy the two lights. The control unit comes with a motion sensor to turn on the light as well. It took me a full four (4) hours to completely install the unit. If I had reused the old wires, and hardware I could have saved about an hour and half, but I also wanted to mount the control closer to the exit door so the motion sensor would be of more value to me. The instructions are fairly clear to assemble the rail, but it would have been faster if they had labels like 1,2,3,4 on them and also a label to show top. But I figured it out in about 15 minutes..”
“Absolutely impressed with how quite this garage door is! Gone is the dreaded hum that vibrates throughout the house! Seriously though, what a difference from my chain driven garage door!! Installation was pretty easy, but I highly recommend having a second person around to help lift and position things. Once installed, its easy to program the opener how far to open and close each time.”
“I am completely satisfied in my purchase. It’s quiet and i love the technology.”
“For the last six years ever since we bought our house I have always wanted a garage door opener on our third bay of our three car garage. When I had my motorcycle it always drove me nuts having to get off to open and unlock the door before pulling in. I recently had an opportunity to get this Chamberlain Wi-Fi DC 3/4 HP Belt Drive Garage Door Opener and all I can say is it is awesome!”
“I had a belt drive door opener at our old house but they have made these things even quieter then before which I didn't think was possible. It sounds exactly like an electric car when it is barely moving. If you have a two story house with living space above the garage I would definitely buy this opener.”
There are a lot of "Pros" for this opener, but there are always "Cons" to just about everything. The most common complaint for this model is that Chamberlain does not currently offer multi-user support for its MyQ system. That's not really a complaint for the Chamberlain B750, but for the MyQ system.
As of February 2018, you will have to share the same login credentials with others whom you want to have smartphone access. For many users, this is not a problem. For others, it's a real challenge. Chamberlain says they are working to incorporate multi-user access in future updates, but nothing has materialized yet.
