I just bought one of these at full price ~ $85 to replace the SB6141 I had. I had a TWC tech come out for a call and he recommended this model and told me the SB6141 had problems on their network. It’s been great so far.
Bought one a few weeks back. Same price. Worked like a dream so far. Just had to call internet provider and give the serial number.
I have this modem. I have Comcast/Xfinity and it does really well- great performance/price ratio. It has a bunch of great reviews on Amazon. Something to consider is that people will think their modem or router is at fault (as I did with this modem) if you get a bunch of disconnects and changes in speed…I have what I considered a pretty clean set-up so I was almost positive it was either my modem or Comcast’s crappy connection. I had a technician come over and low and behold I ate some crow. I had an inline signal amplifier that was going bad, in addition to multiple cable fittings that were garbage- all of these things together put noise into the line cause my disruptions and inconsistant bandwidth. The tech went around replaced my signal amplifier with a different device (worked more like a line EQ than an amplifier), replaced 10 fittings and suddenly my download bandwidth doubled, my upload bandwidth increased 8x, and the system was completely stable thereafter. Signal amplifiers, bad connectors and even certain devices (Ceton infinitv cable-card modem) can add noise to your line that can make your connection inconsistent. It was well worth the $50 it cost me to have the Comcast guy come out and test the line signal.
I bought this the last time it was offered. Figured after wasting money ‘renting’ the Comcast modem for too long, it was finally time to switch. The set-up was very easy on my end…just plug in the AC adapter, router, and cable.
Please note - It does require a call to Comcast to have them add the modem to your account. Once they do that, you should be all set.
The price seems really good, especially considering how much the new ones go for. And performance-wise, what a difference! The speed is so much faster and I can finally use the wifi on my laptop with consistency. Seriously one of my top 3 or 4 favorite Woot purchases.
Good price for a modem with solid performance, but be aware of one thing: These Arris modems have status display LED’s that are bright enough to give you sunburn from across the room. I had an SB6141 for many years and couldn’t sleep in the same room with it unless I put tape over the lights (which defeats the purpose of status lights). Sounds like a minor complaint, but it wears on you over time!
Masking tape works to just dim the lights.
