    Replaced a Motorola Surfboard 5120 Modem with this Motorola Surfboard 6141 Modem. Download speed increased about 10%' but upload speed increased about 300% (from an average of 5MBS to an average of 20MBS measured by Speakeasy.com.). Connection to the Cox cable internet service is also noticeably quicker. My 6141 is attached to a D-Link DIR-655 Wireless Router which services a laptop and an iPad, both realize the same relative speed improvement. The 6141 setup is virtually automatic. Cox internet service logged the modem serial number and MAC ID and the connection was made. One feature that was available on the 5120 modem that is not on the 6141 modem is the standby switch (button) to disconnect the modem from the internet without removing power (AC) from the modem. It was a simple way to temporarily disconnect from the internet while doing work offline, for those so us concerned with internet data monitoring. Bottom line -the Surfboard 6141 is a good choice for internet speed.

    Bought this on sale to replace aging ARRIS data/voip DOCSIS 2 modem. Comcast had been sending periodic messages urging an upgrade to something DOCSIS 3. The provisioning process was a nightmare, with many parts of Comcast claiming they didn't support this model. Eventually worked it out after 2+hours of calls. Speed and latency haven't changed so no benefit yet other than it's half the size and easier to wall mount than my previous modems. My meager understanding is DOCSIS 3 mainly provides more granular control of traffic for the cable co so in the bigger picture may mean they provide better service. Yet to be seen.

    Comments about Motorola SURFboard® SB6141 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem:

    This is a replacement modem, as my old modem could not keep up with today's speeds (in other words, it maxed out at 20Mbps download speeds). Setup was a breeze. Called my ISP and gave them the number on the modem so they could register it. Then, plugged it in and within a minute, I was operating at new super high speeds. All 20 or so devices experienced vast improvements in response times. Most importantly, my VPN access to work became more stable as a result of the change. No regrets on making this purchase!

    Love not paying Time Warner Cable $5.99m

    Comments about Motorola SURFboard® SB6141 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem:

    this is a fantastic modem.

    all you have to do is plug it in. Now I am NOT paying Time Warner Cable $5.99 a month. This modem cost $99.99 and so this will pay for itself in about 20 months.

    if you like to save money and look at things for the long run and you can see the savings and you plan to keep your time warner or charter or any Verizon cable then you will need a modem.

    if you plan to keep your cable service for more than 20 months more than a year and a half then it only makes sense to buy your own modem.

    the only extra thing I had to do because I not only have internet NKJV but I also have my home telephone service through Time Warner Cable, I had to go to the Time Warner Cable office and get a splitter which I was able to get at no charge because the signal has to go through a modem that provides Internet and TV. And there is a separate type of modem that also has telephony.

    usually when you get your own modem they stopped charging you once you give back there modem. However, because I still needed their modem for the home telephone number I kept their telephony modem for my telephone service. And my new Motorola modem takes care of my internet and cable TV programming.

    best value cable modem

    Comments about Motorola SURFboard® SB6141 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem:

    After installing this modem, I was truly getting the download speeds I was paying for from TWC. They supply older style modems without the bonding which in reality gives you about 60% to 70% of your actual speed. This modem gives it all. Before I was getting 30-35 MB/s download after 48-52 MB/s. I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanted to get their full entitlement from their cable ISP. Easy to install, full functionality within 15 minutes (depending on your cable company). Remember not everything you download will be at max speed, the location your downloading from can sometimes be restrictive.
