There is one door opener you should consider before any other, especially if you want quiet. It is only available online through Home Depot. It's made by a German company who's name escapes me at the moment. I installed one for my mother in law last winter. It uses a motorized trolley to lift and lower the door. You can't hear anything but the door rollers when the door moves! Check it out! It's no more expensive than the belt drive you are considering!

Oh man....you should have gone with the LiftMaster direct drive....it attaches to the torsion bar of the opener...fits on the wall instead of the ceiling...much cleaner setup. Quieter than any belt drive....

I keep hoping my screw drive will take a dump so I can replace it.
