This review is from: ARRIS SurfBoard SB6141 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem
Pros: Swallows TWC Extreme internet feed, puts out signal without drama. Hardwired to ASUS RT-AC68U router, which is hardwired to TV and wirelessly connects to PC and two Apple devices. No bogging with three users simultaneously.
Cons: Runs hot. Lights on front panel are a little bright, but not offensively so.
Other Thoughts: Purchased JUN2014 for new TWC install, replacing satellite service. TWC set it up properly (wow!), and it's run seamlessly ever since. Very smooth.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Easy install; connected swiftly; stayed connected. I'm using it with the remote base on my desk, away from the case and monitors. Router is ~8m and one wall away. DSL service for now, upgrading to cable in the near future (and will update this review afterward)..
Cons: None thus far.
Other Thoughts: I'd like to say that "Celeste" from ASUS may not be an actual person, but they honored my problems with the PCE-AC66 I'd purchased and that wasn't compatible with the Z87 chipset. This unit was a direct and no-cost replacement, which they shipped without waiting for my old device to reach them.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: HUGE; nice, functional cable routing; lots of racks for drives; two big and quiet 200mm fans; convenient fan speed knob; air intakes pop off for easy cleaning; 4 USB3.0 ports on top; beautiful window on left side (comes with mesh panel if you'd rather that).
Cons: HUGE -- wider than I'd expected and didn't fit in the hanging under-desk rack I have; instructions were very uninformative (e.g. can the fan LEDs be turned off? Who knows!); on the heavy side.
Other Thoughts: I really like this case. It moves a lot of air, so I'm not scared to dabble in some overclocking without liquid CPU cooling. It looks fantastic, and it's easy to work inside it.READ FULL REVIEW
