Great price on a great modem.

The SB8200 uses a Broadcom chipset to avoid all "Intel Puma 6" chipset issues with latency, jitter, denial-of-service attacks that Intel-based modems have. Check out your search engine of choice for more info.

This modem (and Netgear CM1000) are the only way to get 32 downstream channels without an Intel Puma 6. The SB8200 is also compatible with new DOCSIS 3.1 networks that will be rolling out in coming years.

This modem's only competitor is the Netgear CM1000 - but the Arris SB8200 modem has two ethernet ports you'll eventually be able to bond with LACP for service tiers above 1Gbps, and it also has a downstream spectrum analyzer for troubleshooting.

This works on more ISPs than listed by Arris, but be sure to contact your ISP. I got this working on WOW about a week ago on their Gigabit service. No issues so far.

According to the press release, it does 2gbps down / 1 gbps.

DOCIS 3.1 calls for 10gbps down, but:
Quote :
The SB8200 has two 1 Gigabit Ethernet ports, each supporting up to 1 Gbps transfer rate per port (2 Gbps total) to your home network, thereby limiting the throughput from the cable operator network. Your total throughput from your cable operator using this modem will not exceed 2 Gbps.

Twice as fast. But $30 can handle up to 700 or so mbit.

the $30 model from staples was meant for anyone who gets speeds lower than 638mpbs. It has 16 channels down 4 up. For the average US citizen that is more than enough considering most providers do not offer gigabit speeds and if they did they are out of the average consumers price range. You do have places that managed to get google service and verizon who are getting affordable gigabit speeds. This is basically future proof yourself.

Hmm... I pay for 150mpbs but only get 30-50 (have the SB6183)

Is there really any need for this modem for 99% of the population?
It seems like to make a difference, your provider would have to offer >500mbps plans (and actually deliver)

I have a sb6183 and get 350mbit. This is a cable modem and not a router. Your router may bottleneck like my old one did.

Is this the model they've been complaining about on dsl reports that keeps getting periods of high latency?
