5 out of 5 eggsTime Warner Cable is much faster now...

Pros: I have TWC and they started charging me for a modem rental from them... they modem they had set up originally was terrible and ran very hot. I was paying for 15 MB down / 1 MB up, but only getting 10 MB / 0.75 MB. I bought this, called the cable company and had it registered, once I was online, speedtest indicated full 15 down / 1 up.

Cons: None... hopefully when Google Fiber comes to town I will be able to re-sell this.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Easy setup. Plug in modem, plug in router, call ISP and give them the modems MAC ID, start browsing the web. Easy as that. I get reliable speeds over 40Mbit/s down, 3Mbit/s up. This is over the advertised speed given by my ISP so all I can really say is this modem uses MY full potential. Plus the Modem hasn't reset or lost power yet.

Cons: 0 complaints

Other Thoughts: Double check that your ISP supports the modem before you purchase.

1 out of 5 eggsConstant restarts

Pros: None, buy something else

Cons: - Mine was restarting like crazy - 15-25 restarts every day due to "power loss". Had cable technician to look into problem - not their issue. Tried various PSUs (12v 2A), UPS - no difference
- Absurdly bright flashy lights - no chance to keep it in your bedroom unless you need a stroboscope for your night party
- Logs should hold more entries - couple of restarts and the new entries were overwriting older ones
- Not accurate signal power readings

Other Thoughts: All my issues went away when I bought D-Link DCM-301

4 out of 5 eggsGood Modem, but needs added Cooling

Pros: Getting a solid 55mbs dwn, and 5.1mbs up on a Wave Broadband connection. These are the advertised speeds, so no problem with the bandwidth.

Cons: Tendency to get hot when downloading just 4 connections. Solution: Buy a 50mm GELID fan from Newegg and superglue this to the vented side of the modem. This fan is 12DC, so make sure you have the correct power supply for this fan. 12VAC will not work.

Other Thoughts: Best if you can carefully drill the vent holes larger without damaging the internal modem parts. Then superglue the GELID fan to the vented side (draw air IN) and connect to power supply, and you are good-to-go. Make sure you have the fan drawing cool air IN, not Out. Never will hesitate or drop-out again.

5 out of 5 eggsGood modem

Pros: Right out it upped my speed threw Ookla for download to about 59.83 mbs and 6.77mbs upload. Lot better then my other modem.
On xfinity it was down load 62.94 and 7.1 up.
On verison it was down load 59.57 and 6.83 up.
so results will vary.

Cons: It took a little while with the weather for everything to come together. Just remember to unplug everything from the power to the router, the router plug then the modem wire/coax. Then just reverse on that end. Make sure everything else is powered down. Not really con's, just things you need to remember to do the job yourself.

Other Thoughts: Also remember to have what you need for the tech on this model sb6141 and the second set of numbers down s/n approx 22-24 #'s and mac id ready for the techs you will have to be speaking with, Makes it go really fast.

5 out of 5 eggsKicks it and just works

Pros: Pretty easy to setup really -- just plug in and make sure the cable provider had all the necessary info in their system to recognize and register the device on their network. The vertical form factor takes up less space than the previous Cisco one I had. This unit runs and stays pretty cool. Speed is great, but that is as much a function of my service and DOCSIS 3.0 than anything.

Cons: The only somewhat minor but annoying thing is that the status lights are VERY bright and larger than a typical LED. And there is only one data light and flashes at a constant rate regardless of traffic so it doesn't really give you an indication of what is happening inbound or outbound.

Other Thoughts: Compared to my prior cable modem, this one seems to take a fair while to boot up and connect when restarted. It's not clear to me what that is about.
