this seems like REALLY good price, since the modem itself worth 160 and the cable modem itself worth $70-80, do I need to upgrade my surfboard sb5120 modem to this? my current cable is with cox getting average 25Mbps down and 7Mbps up. If i upgrade this do I get faster speed or what does it give me?
The included modem is DOCSIS 3.0 and the one you currently have, like mine, is DOCSIS 2.0. If your ISP has DOCSIS 3.0 enabled in your area you should definitely see an improvement in speed.
Great deal OP! Too bad I have my mind set on an Asus RT-AC66U instead, missed the one day best buy deal on that one last week and am hoping for another deal to pop up. However, if I didn't already have a surfboard 6141 DOCSIS 3 modem I would jump on this deal!
Sweet! Picked up a set. Have Shoprunner from previous deal which is nice. Plus a $10 GC from NewEgg customer service issue I had a few months ago to get it to $160. Replacing my 10 yr old Airport Extreme. Already have a 6120 which still works fine so I don't know what I'll do with my modem situation.
It's worth noting up on the auction sites you can get an SB6141 shipped for about $70-$75, so I wouldn't value it quite as high as the current retail price. Still a good deal either way!
Yep, that's where I bought mine from after seeing the seller mentioned on SD (don't think I'm allowed to say which one but a search could turn it up I'm sure). I pay $67 shipped with a "best offer" and got it in a couple of days. This really is a killer deal though OP.
