Pros: Fast, stable, works great
Cons: None so far
Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace some memory that was no longer working. My G.Skill has a lifetime warranty, but I didn't want to wait for an RMA process and have downtime on that machine. I purchased this memory and have had no issues with it. It benchmarked high and has been stable since I have purchased. It remains at comfortable temps and I would recommend to others. Good buy.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: MOTOROLA SB6141 SURFboard DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem 10/100/1000Base-T Ethernet (RJ-45)
theoretically will scale with home internet speeds in my area
not comcast equipment
looks kind of cool
Cons: I have comcast and had to call to get it activated
bright lights (I guess is an issue)
Other Thoughts: I read the reviews good and bad. I read the support forums and decided on the 6141 vs the 6121 due to the scalability. The reviews were far fewer with it being new and all, and the bad reviews seemed to be based on ISP issues. I was glad that I was correct.
Installation was easy, activation was unfortunately not as painless (I had to call in to have them activate it). After about 3 reboots I had internet access. After getting off of the phone I started running speed tests. Other users had issues with a bad boot config file that halved their speeds. I decided to wait until the next day, reboot a few times and read up a little more to be certain I had as many points to cover with Comcast when I called so the call was as short as possible. What I found out was that the modem speed was halved because the last rep that said I have a great deal with your service and then some at a lower price failed to note my internet speed and bumped me down. Again, ISP issues are the problem with this modem. The support rep increased my service with me on the phone and my speeds went back up.
In conclusion, this modem works as described. It's a great modem. It's inexpensive and should last a few years based on reviews and specs. If you have issues you will want to touch on the fine points (firmware version, boot cfg file, and the service you pay for). Either way, it's not the cable providers equipment so you can't lose. I recommend it.
Pros: Worked great for a while. Stable, fast (clock speeds as expected). Heat spreader design was nice, this kit worked well in triple channel mode. It did what I needed it to do with no issues for quite a while.
Another pro would be price.
Cons: This ram started throwing errors about a month ago. I started getting NT Kernel blue screen errors that went away when I replaced this ram. The modules were very hot when I pulled them after an error. I did extensive testing, but no errors thrown when cold. Disappointing, but it could be the triple channel mode/clock settings were just too much for them over time.
Other Thoughts: Good ram, I tend to go with G.SKILL to save a buck, but quality fluctuates with this brand. Some modules work great and some fail after a short period of time. I still like this brand and have bought a different series of G.SKILL to replace these. Worth buying, but watch your settings.READ FULL REVIEW
