you lie i easily got 28Mbps at my old place. I own 5 of these modems and yup they can hit 30Mbps no problem so dont let that docsis 3 bullcrap brainwash you. docsis 3 is for streaming 1080p pron and other blocked channels laugh out loud
I have twc turbo. Had no problems getting fast speeds at non peak times, but at peak times, it slowed quite a bit. A docsis 3 modem fixed this, solid speeds all day. One thing to note, no speed boost on non twc provided modems.

I recommend getting this modem if you have Standard internet or slower. Turbo might work if CSR let you. My previous CSR kept pressuring me to switch to Turbo while in progress of activating my Motorola Surfboard 5101u. I told her no thank many times. My SB 5101u is still kicking and getting 32mbps down and 1mbps up with Powerboost. Without powerboost, I get 18mbps down and 1mbps. Too bad, TWC is now taking our Powerboost Frown

The 5101 is DOCSIS2 and is the modem that Time Warner gave me by default. If you're buying a new one you might as well get a DOCSIS3 modem. Can get them brand new for $40-$50 and "future proof" your setup.

WTF? Why bother having a 'make offer' button then? Weird.
I bumped my offer to $15 but no go.

There are other sellers on ebay that sell the sb5101 for around the same price. Some have suffixes of N and I though. I went a bought one for $15 to try out. Hope it works.

Why settle for a less price when they are selling like hot cakes?

Got mine. Running it now with no problems.

Mine works fine also. I have twc standard and the speed is the same as the ancient SB4200 (16/1) but at least I don't have to pay the rent fee.
