5 out of 5 eggsGood choice

Pros: Despite some of the issues listed by other reviewers, I've found this modem to be fast and reliable. It was recognized by my ISP (Comcast) without difficulty. Streaming and other Internet services function without periodic re-buffering or latency. Definitely satisfied with this purchase.

Cons: As others have stated, the blue LEDs are a bit bright. I located my modem in a utlity room, so it hasn't been an issue.

1 out of 5 eggsTWC or modem?

Pros: None

Cons: The basic problem is the modem reboots randomly and link fails to reestablish TCP the connection. This begs the question, who's has responsibility to perform error recovery. The first thing I would do is download the latest firmware for the modem if there is a newer release, but that's not an option for the customer. The ISP provider must perform the upgrade, but TWC doesn't upgrade customer modems. What is your options with TWC, put the modem and router on a plug that's control by a switch to reboot after failure. Motorola should provide the customer an option to upgrade the firmware like most other products. Answer: Connected to TWC, rent there modem or use some other networking option if possible. With TWC don't purchase a modem.

5 out of 5 eggsWorth the upgrade

Pros: I have Comcast and I have not had a single problem yet.

It worked.

Cons: none really.

Other Thoughts: I was skeptical about spending 100$ to upgrade from my 4 year old moto modem. The jump from DOCSIS 2.0-3.0 is surprising. I pay for the 50mb from Comcast and when I would use netflix/hulu on 2 TV's and surf at the same time I could notice a drop in quality and lag. After I upgraded, I have no issues streaming to 3+ devises and surfing.

Also, It helps a heck of a lot to have a very good router. I user that nighthawk net gear one and I love it.

5 out of 5 eggsSuits my Needs

Pros: Easy to Setup, works great

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I used this to access a 50Mbps cable internet plan. I measure 51-53Mbps of download 3Mbps upload via Speedtest.net with pings regularly around 25-50ms. My internet access is as responsive as ever. I'm routing network traffice with a ZyXel USG50.

1 out of 5 eggsDrops connection frequently

Pros: My connection is Time Warner to SB6141 to Asus RT-N66U.

Switch from rental modem was smooth after advising internet service provider (TW) of new address. Same speed as rental modem.

Cons: SB6141 loses connection several times an hour. Intolerable for casual surfing. Impossible for streaming media.

Other Thoughts: I bought this thinking it was future proof. Learned it isn't even current ready. Going auction shopping for duplicate of old rental modem.

5 out of 5 eggsJust purchased / initial rating

Pros: This is one of the more pleasant experiences I have had with setting up a modem. It arrived in good time; I called Time Warner. The T/Warner lady quickly configured the new modem correctly. A couple of minutes later it was working in place of the original without hassle.

Cons: None yet. (was much smaller than I expected)

Other Thoughts: I achieved a 16 Gbps download during a quick test That was a 1 Gb improvement compared to the stock T/W modem. Performance is now pretty good. Hooked up to a brand new Computer with Windows 8 Intel i-5 and a premium Gigabyte motherboard, quite satisfied. All these people complaining about leds being too bright. I disagree. The only way this might be too bright is if it is placed two inches in front of your eyeballs. I like blinking lights. They let me know it is working.
