Summary: Run a Speed Check (http://www.speedtest.net) prior to setting up. It really justifies the purchase. My speed tripled!. The old modem was only 2-3 years old. And it did it's own set-up with Time Warner. Good Purchase.
Excerpt: I used this to replace the standard comcast modem that I had previously rented for a monthly charge. The comcast modem had many problems and an inconsistent signal. Once I switched over I have not had any problems. The speeds are significantly higher and I am also saving on my bill.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast Connection, Reliable Connection
Summary: this is an inexpensive modem that is easy to set up , the only things i do not like are the lights , way to bright for my taste and the transmit light will flash red for some connection types . This does not indicate a problem but it took some research for me to figure that out .
Summary: Purchased this modem at a downtown San Diego, CA store after getting misinformed by my local Carmel Mountain Ranch Staples store that it was only available online. It saves me the $10 a month rental fee from Time Warner Cable and seems to work better than the rented modem.
