Consumer Feedback on Retail DOCSIS 3.0 Modems

It’s been several months since Motorola launched DOCSIS 3.0 modems in retail, and with the rapid spread of D3 networks, I figured it was worth checking in to see how they’re faring. As a quick recap, these modems are for use with broadband service from providers who have already deployed (or will soon deploy) DOCSIS 3.0 networks. They’re available at retail for consumers who would rather own a modem than lease it from a cable operator.

It turns out that feedback on the D3 modems has been pretty good. An account manager at Motorola has been tracking reviews online, and I’ve posted a selection of what he found below. Nine out of ten customers said they’d recommend the product to a friend.

I now feel theĀ  extra 6Mbps this modem give me compared to my old one and may one day try out the 60Mbps available in my area. I even have my linksys router connected up to it and it’s blazing fast on wireless also! What are you waiting for? Go buy it already.

This has been great. It is well built and fast. I particularly like the way they did the notification lights. The PC connection light will turn blue instead of green when you have a gigabit connection and the UP/Downstream lights will be blue if you have a blonded connection.

…it was UBER FAST.

I bought this modem a week ago, tested every day to the maximum and I’ve got to say that it is great. Speed is amazing, using Comcast’s “blast” package I triple my speed, just by switching from SB5100 to SB6120. I tested my speed on speedtest.net and I had 54MB/s down and 9.4 Mb/s up.

Simple to setup, reliable, works, gigabit WAN ethernet port. I have had this modem in place for 1 week already and it hasĀ  been great, no lock-ups or random restarting. It’s just solid as a rock, like my old SB5100.

  5. With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation?

    My site has a lot of unique content I’ve either written myself or
    outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web
    without my authorization. Do you know any ways to help prevent content from being stolen?

    I’d certainly appreciate it.
