Pros: None

Cons: Lasted about 3 months and died.

Other Thoughts: Motorola had a great modem until the Arris label was placed on it. I have an old surfboard modem that i bought in 2002 works great but not enough bandwidth for my home. this is the 3rd and final Arris modem that I've had go bad.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA - do yourself a favor and don't buy this one

Pros: Small?

Cons: Dead on Arrival. Had to contact Comcast to figure out whether it was the Arris modem or the cable line. In the end, we tried a different modem and it worked. Comcast technician mentioned that he had run into prior problems with this same exact Arris model.

I contacted Arris and they will not reimburse me for Comcast's fee, even though it was incurred due to their defective modem. My guess is that their DOA rate is quite high. I am out $40 for Comcast installation fee because it wasn't Comcast's fault.

My advice is for you to get one from a different brand.

5 out of 5 eggsCable Modem

Pros: Easy to setup

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: This is my initial review of the Motorola SB 6141. The setup was darn right easy, mainly because I didn't have to call comcast. Took approximately about 30 minutes even though it was suppose to take about 20 minutes. Otherwise a novice won't have any trouble installing the modem.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Modem for someone looking to ditch the rental fees!

Pros: Got this modem at a BB store when it was on sale for $79 about 9 months ago. Brought it home and tried the online setup with Comcast...Fail. Called Comcast and had it up and running in less than ten minutes, and has been running non stop without reset since. Wish my wireless router were as rock solid, but my Asus RT N65U seems to require a reboot about every 90 days or the wireless speeds drop way off.

When Comcast raised the rental fee to $8 for a modem here, from the $5 they were charging, I bought my own and couldn't be happier.

Cons: It wasn't free. It doesn't cook my breakfast or start my car on cold mornings.

Other Thoughts: Some people have success using the online modem registration with Comcast or other ISP's, but it just would not work for me at all, YMMV. A quick call to the ISP and your up and running in no time. This works with the full 100 Meg service offered here and tests at 105 to 108 consistently.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: Worth the investment considering that the cable companies charge up to $6 a month for the lease of a cable modem. In less than a year I've paid for the modem.

Cons: Not much of a con, but it does require an extra step from the cable company to register your modems MAC address in order for it to work. It does not work out of the box for Comcast.

1 out of 5 eggsDrops Connections

Pros: It was free with my purchase of a Motorola cable modem

Cons: It has been almost a month since I hooked this thing up. So far it is far less effective than my old netgear router which is 5 years old and was about 20 bucks. It frequently drops the connection to the computer and I have to disconnect and reconnect. Its range is quite poor, even when sometimes my laptop is right next to the thing and not showing full bars.

Other Thoughts: I would return it, but it was free so this will probably be placed in a closet soon and be forgotten.

3 out of 5 eggsSoild speeds

Pros: A little expensive for what it is, a modem. Only upgraded because cox doubled their speeds and my old docsis 2.0 wasn't able to deliver any more.
Works as advertised, but almost didn't. see con(s).

Cons: The HFC Mac address on the label on the bottom of the modem, and the label on the quick start guide did not match what the firmware listed on the modems addresses page. When I called cox to provision the modem I gave them the HFC mac address listed on the paper work. After several hours of call backs and re-provisioning, I noticed the discrepancy in the addresses tab of the modem webportal. Had I not thought to look though there I would never had gotten the modem to work and would have had to exchange it. Poor quality control on Motorola's part.

Other Thoughts: It's a docsis 3.0 modem, it makes my computer stream those kinds of sites quicker. Giggity.

1 out of 5 eggsAvoid this modem

Pros: It worked for three months

Cons: This modem has a really cheap ethernet controller. I had it connected to a surge protector that protected both coaxial and power against surges. One power outage and the controller went dead. Windows would prompt me that a cable was unplugged. Nothing else electronic in my house suffered any kind of damage so I can only assume that the controller just failed.

Other Thoughts: Possibly just a bad modem. I called Motorola tech support and I got a recording saying this call cannot be completed and it hung up. So I'm out $100.

5 out of 5 eggsOne year usage

Pros: Like many reviews here, just connect this cable modem in, hook up your PC and/or home router and you are off an running. I've ran this cable modem for the last year and its not missed a beat. I've had to move three times and each time it was just as easy.
I use an older link sys home router with DD-WRT (linux) on it and between these two items I NEVER have to reboot anything for Internet access. Couldn't say that for the original cable modem Time Warner provided some years back.

Cons: Lights are kinda bright.

Other Thoughts: You could do much worse, this cable modem works and works well.
