ZyXEL BRG35503 DOCSIS 3.0 Residential Cable Modem Compatible with Comcast Network
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Faster than Comcast's Doc S 3.0 modem 03/24/2015

This review is from: ZyXEL BRG35503 DOCSIS 3.0 Residential Cable Modem Compatible with Comcast Network

Pros: An update to my earlier 2 star review.Laying the modem flat it becomes worrisome to hot and affects performance.Sitting the modem upright and while still warm it is not unacceptable.Also i was being throttled on upload 5mb when paying for 10mb.
Just sitting the modem upright solved both problems.

Cons: runs warm ,the small enclosure istheissue

Other Thoughts: Super positives Zyxel gets 20% more speed than the highend comcast modem Lol i guess comcast has less control over an aftremarket modem.,upload speed is almost a 10% increase.
On Blast 50/10 ,i get 60/11 & NO DROP OUTS ,I can only give it 4 stars due to the heat.But it is a little speed demon

2 out of 5 eggs Easy to setup but Runs HOT! 03/18/2015

This review is from: ZyXEL BRG35503 DOCSIS 3.0 Residential Cable Modem Compatible with Comcast Network

Pros: Economical and small footprint.Easy to install with Comcast.
20 percent faster download speeds than comcasts rental modem.
60mb over 50 mb

Cons: Major con and worrisome con is the incredible heat this modem throws off ,you could probably fry an egg on top.My upload speed seems to fluctuate now between 3 and 6 but this could be a comcast isp problem

Other Thoughts: My download speed has increased an upload decreased ,i have blast 50/10 and have been getting 60/5 with the ZyXEL.
I have warned the family to make sure nothing is near or sitting on the modem because of the heat.In fact right after i write this review i will stand the modem vertically ,following the advice of another newegg reviewer and hope it runs much cooler afterwards as his did. The heat issue and the decrease in upload speed for me is the reason iam giving it 2 stars.

TP-LINK Archer C5 AC1200 Dual Band Wireless AC Gigabit Router, 2.4GHz 300Mbps+5Ghz 867Mbps, 2 USB Ports, IPv6, Guest Network
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: The pros are many ,I will start off with the dual band 2.4 & 5.0 Ghz.
The 5.0 band will basically give you zero interference from most any other wireless waves flying around in the air.This leads to no signal degrade between my hard wire lan and a wireless laptop.5.0Ghz is the ac1200 standard which is to new to have interference on. The 2.4 Ghz while theoretically slower,is compatible with older laptops and wireless cards ,you may have both bands running at the same time on the TP-Link to keep all your devices happy.

Cons: I havent came across a con as yet...no really!!

Other Thoughts: Dumped my comcastoff modem/router bought a modem from newegg for testing the Tp-Link Archer c5 and now get 10mb more speed and zero dropouts/reboots. I love the browser interface for this router ,it not only walks you thru each step for settings ,adding a printer or usb stick etc.But explains & teaches you something about networking in a very easy to understand format.
I never bothered with file and printer sharing before but since the TP Link makes it so easy to do now.For me it's the new norm.
Oh and buh bye cable rental fees!!! Woo Hoo
