Thanks Tara from Merlin for recommending Commander Elite MS105MYQ to replace my MT5580P. The Elite is quiet as a mouse and smooth. Excellent service from Mick and his team at Baulkham Hills Doors for prompt installation. Highly recommended.

I loved the first one, so I had to get a second. It’s a great unit, it’s so quiet. The guys at Queensland Door Doctors (John) were great, I’m very happy with my new garage door opener!

Our installer Jim’s Garage Doors was fantastic, he explained what he needed to do and then gave us a rundown of the features of the new system once installed. We love our new Merlin garage door opener, it’s so much quieter than our old opener.

PJ Garage Doors installed our door and we couldn’t be happier with the service they provided. They were very professional, on time, and good value for money. The garage door runs very well now. We would recommend their service to anyone.

The installer from Smart Garage Doors & Gates, Sunshine Coast was professional, knowledgeable, on-time, helpful and friendly. The garage door runs much smoother and is a massive improvement on the last model.

Massive difference between our old garage door opener & the new Merlin Commander Elite. Simon from Eden Roc Garage Doors in Wangara arrived in the time period booked, was friendly and did a very professional job. Would highly recommend.

Wow, very quite and responsive controller and with a great bright LED light (the wife will be happy). Very happy with the Merlin Commander Elite and the overall price was reasonable too. A huge thanks to Byron from Hi-Tech Doors for the professional install and his courteous nature. I highly recommend both Merlin Commander Elite and Hi- Tech Doors.

Big thanks to Andrew of ELITE ROLLER DOOR REPAIRS for recommending and eventually installing the MERLIN Commander Elite MS105MYQ. Very quiet and the price is very reasonable. Highly recommended if you have a sectional garage door opener.

Very impressed with the new Merlin Elite that I had installed today. The gents from Purple Patch Garage doors were extremely professional with the installation. To echo other commenters remarks, I cannot believe how quiet the Merlin Elite is compared to the old garage door opener it replaced.
