really old model, when buying a modem, you want a bit of future proofing, go with the 6141 at least

what's the best model out now? I know nothing of modems but I'd like to give my cable company their old modem back and stop paying them 10 bucks a month for it

I disagree, only because that's advice for "us" folks. If there was a college student who wants that $50 or less plan from their cable company and don't want to pay $8/mo to Comcast/Cox/Mediacom....then this is PERFECT. If it faults out in 3-5 years, then it's ok, as the modem paid for itself 4 months into their services.

It's like routers. I future proof'd mine only because I use many of the services. I recommend much cheaper ones for my friends as they'll be nowhere near the tinkering or don't have devices that can use AC bands.

For "us" though, you're right, as we'd probably be looking at a 6141 at minimum as we're thinking 100Mbps+ connections, and need something that can reach that 350Mbps speed (or whatever number it is)

This is a GREAT slickdeal and I wish I could have bought this for my wife's mama instead of dropping $60 for a 6141...

It might be a good deal, as long as your cable provider will still allow for this particular model.

i'd recommend not using a modem/router combo.
when there's issues, it's difficult to troubleshoot to see if the modem/ISP is having issues or if it's your network/router. Also, replacing a modem or a router is easier and than replacing an modem/router combo.

Stating this, modem/router combo's should be more reliable than they were in the past and prices should be less than they use to. They would be less hassle than setting up 2 devices (space/placement).

Also, if you use their triple play (including phone), you'd need their modem. If not, you can swap out.

I'd check with Comcast to make sure it'll work, I called a few days back to set up a SB6141, and was told it is on their End Of Life list.
