Here are a few things to consider, one time TWC tech noted that this modem will even be enough for Turbo as well, I did not check that as I have got Standard and it works just fine.
Second - I have got my modem (same SB5101) from Amazon - there you can ALWAYS find it for $20 shipped in used condition. But first one I have got was not working, second came with wrong power supply. Both were from 3rd parties with Prime via AMazon, so easy return here. Last time I have purchased one from Amazon Warehouse - used like new for $22, it came it retail box, with no signs of use at all, with all cables and manuals and what not.
Here are those that I have found:

And SB5120 - don't know if it works on TWC, but it's $13 shipped:

My connection got better, more stable after I have switched their stock basic modem with this SB5101.
For a limited time TWC has Standard 15Mbps for $35 instead of 45 for first 12month, then you have to call and ask for current promos to get on another deal if you want. I have been jumping between roadrunner and this for price reductions every 6 month.

they all suck verizon, att timewarner, comcast. no good telco / cable company around.. i wish google would compete. say here $20 50 Mbps for all.. watch slimewarner and the rest Jawdrop
ATT is worse than TWC. They've got a data cap and that shit is beyond retarded. With TWC, you may get a year of standard service for $30/mo and a second year at a slightly higher price. After that, you are going to start to get screwed.

Meh. I'll bite. Even if the standard changed to DOCSIS 3.0 in 3 months, I will already have made my money back. I'll take my chances. And chances are, things are not gonna change that soon anyway

I know the kind of speeds DOCSIS 2.0 supports, I've done plenty of network in my days. Just don't be surprised if you call up and they try to talk you down from activating it.

yeah i dropped at&t back in 2009. their taxes was a joke. then they got hit with 2 mill lawsuit and wanted to pass on the savings to the customers thats right when i told them they can eat a big one. then i got a timewarner phone and internet for a whopping 20 bucks life was good then twc became buttholes and tried to creep the bill to almost double.. had to ditch the phone and get the internet which gives off free tv. then they started to tack on "rental fees" LMAO canceled and never looked back

WTF? Why bother having a 'make offer' button then? Weird.
