5 out of 5 eggsA great modem!

Pros: Super Fast, Reliable/Stable, multiple upstream and downstream channel bonding, built-in Gigabit, built-in MoCa filter, pays for itself over time

Cons: The lights on the front are too bright, no way to do consumer firmware upgrades/updates by yourself (though firmware updates can be pushed by your cable provider)

Other Thoughts: This modem is just outstanding! Super fast right out of the box and ultra reliable. I paired this with my e4200 which is running Tomato and I am extremely impressed at the speed/performance I am getting. This replaced a cable company rented modem which was costing me 4 dollars a month. Within about a year, this modem will pay for itself, and it's faster and more reliable on top of that benefit. I like the built-in gigabit and moca filters, as both really help me to get the most out of my connection (I use several moca devices around the house so I can get faster than wireless speeds without the need for dedicated wiring). This box was a great investment and I can't believe I waited this long to get one. The only downside to this box is that the lights are quite bright, so you may need to cover them with electrical tape if you sit in close proximity to this at night. Also, you can't manually update the firmware (but your cable provider can). Buy this box, you won't regret it.

5 out of 5 eggsmodem

Pros: Motorola makes a good modem.

Cons: Had to call Comcast to register it and get it activated, but that is not really a con.

Other Thoughts: Had to call Comcast
Besides my account information I
gave them the following information:
MAC address
Modem Model number
Serial Number
This information is in very tiny print on the bottom of the box.
Have this information ready, before you call Comcast, and you will not get frustrated. They also want you to bypass your router if you use one.(connect direct to the computer), to make sure the service is working without other network issues.

5 out of 5 eggsUpgd from Comcast SB5120

5 out of 5 eggsHuge speed increase

Pros: I replaced my comcast supplied modem/router with this unit. Comcast self-activation worked without a hitch and my download speeds went from 15-20Mbps to just shy of 120Mbps!

Cons: none as of yet, but will update if i come across any

Other Thoughts: i bought this via another website as a refurb unit and had no problem with activating with comcast

2 out of 5 eggsDefective Product + Slow Cust Service = Bad Formula

Pros: N/A

Cons: Received a defective product that has cost our business with time! We tested it thoroughly with 3 wifi routers including a the Nighthawk it came bundled with. Every other Router worked with it. Newegg's customer service could only furnish an RMA# that takes even longer to get a replacement. its 2014 and still have to validate our claims? Good thing I purchased thru AMEX and I can just outright void the transaction.

1 out of 5 eggsNot compatible with some comcast accounts

Pros: On paper, this is supposed to be very fast and future proof. Read on.

Cons: Comcast had trouble provisioning it from the start, but it got to work at promised speeds. Then my speed dropped from 20 Mbps to less than 1! Every 3 or 4 reboots I would get my speed again but soon it would drop down. I called Comcast and they ran their tests and said all their software was correct on their end and according to my test results, all the signals were fine. I also went to the Comcast Forums and sure enough, dozens of people have the exact same problem and again, the consumer is pinned between motorolla and comcast. I'm returning it and getting the 6121 which has a proven track record with Comcast.
