Pros: simple upgrade, affordable, great new features, backwards compatible
Cons: preferred old white button color, instructions don't mention compat. w/ old remotes
I just upgraded the 78LM panel on my house's 2004 Liftmaster 2265R) to the 888LM MyQ panel. The wiring color code and wire attachment is the same as the old panel. Even the mounting hole spacing is the same. It took me longer to get out and put away the ladder to unplug and plug the power from the opener than to change panels.
The new Secutiry+2.0 and MyQ devices program to the new panel, so no more climbing the ladder to push the learn button for that! One thing that wasn't clear to me, that I checked with support about first, is that your old remotes and keypads will still work via the original opener. So, if you have a lot of panels and remotes you don't have to replace them all at once.
I wish every upgrade went this smooth. Seriously, I'm an engineer and a tech guy, and it seems nothing works as simple as described, but this did.
