5 out of 5 eggs Bang for the Buck and Long-term Savings 04/29/2014

This review is from: MOTOROLA SBG6580 SURFboard Wireless Cable Modem Gateway RJ-45 DOCSIS 3.0, 2.0 and 1.0, Euro-DOCSIS 3.0

Pros:

-No Modem Lease Fee indefintely through ISP,
-Modem and Router in Single Unit reduces wire clutter and saves space.
-Gigabit ethernet supports virtually any consumer level bandwidth speeds currently available. Also allows for fast transfering of files between different devices within the same Home Network.
-Dual Band N-router has good range and signal strength, capable of supporting multiple wireless devices at quick speeds.
-Supports upcoming next-gen technology such as DOCSIS 3.0 and IPv6.
-Router Software/Firmware has extensive features, including parental controls.
-WPA2-PSK (and other options) to help ensure "bandwidth thieves" aren't robbing you blind.

Cons:

-802.11 n is "old" technology, does not have newer AC level wireless bandwidth.
-Does not come with adjustable external antennae.

Other Thoughts:

Running 50 Mbps service from ISP, seeing speeds over 7 megabytes/sec. through my wired ethernet desktop PC. Supplies plenty of wireless bandwidth and connections stay strong throughout the apartment, even after travelling 60 feet through multiple walls, and servicing up to 3 wireless devices simultaneously (Laptop while gaming, iPad, Android Smartphone). We have two people playing MMO's (one wired, one wireless) at the same time with no speed or connectivity issues.

Good bang for the buck and pays for itself (by not having to pay modem lease fees) far sooner than when it will need to be replaced for newer tech. Would Recommend to Friends and Family.
