LiftMaster 3800 Jackshaft?

I have to install a low clearance garage door opener and am thinking about using the LiftMaster 3800 Jackshaft. Does anyone know anything about the pros and cons. Is this a crappy opener like the iDRIVE?

Thank you foe your help :)

    I can tell you from professional experience with both brands that the iDrive (Wayne Dalton) is really only intended for light-weight/small doors and, as such, is a light-weight unit - to be nice. The LiftMaster 3800 is cream of the crop. We have them installed on sizes ranging from 9 x 7 to 18 x 8 and have had no trouble. Make sure your door is balanced properly and you should have no problems.
