Is a universal transmitter better than a standard Overhead Door transmitter?

No. There are a number of “so-called” universal transmitters in the market. The main advantage of these units are their ability to operate a number of different NON-ROLLING CODE garage door systems. Additionally, it takes some of the guess work out of knowing what type of system/brand a customer may have. Yet, the performance/range of these units is often well below the standard Overhead Door transmitter. Some customers will return these units because the range is less than that of the original transmitter.
