Question idrive garage door opener opinions wanted

I'm installing a garage door opener in my new garage.
A neighbor suggested I install an idrive opener. See
Key features:
# Fast opening; Soft start/stop operation
# Installs in less than one hour
# Direct drive system - no belt, chain or screw
# Opener security arm locks closed door
# Safety sensors not required when used with pinch-resistant door
# Life of home warranty
# Includes: wireless wall station, (2) keychain remotes, wireless security light & wireless keyless entry pad

Do you know anything about this opener?
At $234 it's pretty spendy. Costco sells a Chamberlain screw drive opener for $150.

I installed an idrive opener last March, when I had a new garage installed (the installer's didn't want to install it because they never did one). I installed it in no time at all. I love that it doesn't take up any headroom. Moreover, it allowed my garage door to have a larger radius on the track (low ceiling). I'd buy one again. Transmitter range isn't very good, though.
