Summary: Bought this modem as it was the identical one TWC brought out to my granddaughter's house and now were going to charge a monthly lease for. I returned the one from the cable company and plugged the one I purchased into it's place. Perfect! and no monthly lease fee.
Pros: Thanks to other (previous) reviews, I bought this when switching from DSL to Time Warner Basic. Even though it is no longer on thier list of "approved devices", the install tech. said that he had them "in his truck" and it works without issue. No problem regestring it as of Summer 2014. Cool/Moderate temperatures for light use (3Mbs).
Cons: Its not DOCSIS 3.0 , so I am not sure how long it will be supported. I don't need it for DOCSIS 3 speed, but I hear rumors that DOCSIS 2.0 is running out of capacity for IP addresses (6 billion?), so at some point, Cable companies may stop supporting it (although I heard there are work-arounds). I am no expert, but it it lasts a year, I will have gotten my money's worth.
Pros: I'm writing this review AS I'm finishing up with Comcast's activation's department. It only took about 10 minutes when you acquired the right person to talk to in order to activate this product. Today is 5/19/14. This 100% works with Comcast, and they're lying if they say it does not. The reason I'm stating this is because most of the battle (about an hour total) was held with Comcast associates that literally thought I was an idiot who couldn't read product descripti...
Cons: No cons about the actual modem itself. I bought this DOCSIS 2.0 knowing that it would only support a certain amount speed coming out of the pipe.
Pros: I bought this for my daughter so she wouldnt have to pay $6 a month to rent Time Warners modem. The biggest problem was getting a time warner tech on the phone which took many phone calls and long waits but once that happened, it took 30 seconds to activate it. It works fine and a one time charge of $45 is better than $6 a month forever.
The purchase that makes me money month after month..
9 March 2014
Summary: I purchased this modem for the cost of less than two months of renting one from Time Warner. I's the exact same model and works as fast as the one I returned. This purchase is saving me $6.00 every single month. If you are still renting your modem you need to purchase a used one and start saving money from the moment you plug it in!
