Disappointed

Chuck B, ABT Electronics
20 March 2013

  • Cons: Difficult To Program, Inconsistent Operation, Poor Durability, Unreliable

no remote, ABT Electronics
23 October 2011
  • Excerpt: Had professionally installed. Works very well for a couple of years & then the buttons begin to fail. Many of the buttons are now nonfunctional or not responsive until multiple attemps (third year now) and I have to replace the entire unit. Not what you would expect for the price.
  • Pros: Nice Features
  • Cons: Difficult To Program, Lacks durablity
