Summary: Was going from DSL internet connection to cable internet. Selected this product because my son already has cable internet and purchased this modem. Why pay "rent" to your cable company for a modem.
Summary: Time Warner was going to begin to charge us every month for their modem we'd had since eternity. So it was time to give it back to them. Good decision. This was really easy to switch out and works fine.
Summary: I grabbed a modem to avoid renting one from Comcast and this one's been treating me pretty well. I was apprehensive about it only being 2.0 certified, but it's working just fine. I wouldn't have bought it at the price it is now, though.
Summary: I bought it to replace the modem (same model) I was renting from my cable company. Essentially, I've had two of these modems & haven't had any issues in 5 years. Works excellently & is much cheaper than renting the whole time.
