Other than saying we have DOCSIS 3.1 are there really any benefits to moving? My current modem appears to sport very similar specs: ARRIS SURFboard SB6190.

The only negative I see with the SB6190 is it's capped at <15 Mbps upload speeds, but this may be a provider thing. Downloads are between 200-400 Mbps depending on time of day or speedtest traffic. Still enough for 3-5 video streams going in parallel.

Your ISP will provide the said speed with the modem it deems "qualified." Your modem is capable does not mean it is qualified for your plan speed. For example, my modem is rated at 8x4 or 343Mbps is greater than my Ultimate 300 Mbps speed; however, it is not qualified for the speed because my ISP does not accept it as the qualified modem.

Yours is capable, but you have to convince your ISP to lift your modem restriction to accept the higher speed.

4 consumer owned modems qualified for gig with Comcast. This is one of them. Others are Arris sb8200 , Moto 8609 and Netgear c7800. Package is for 1gig down 35 up I believe.

Do these have the CPUs with the known defect? Sorry, I can't remember the name, I just knew it affected a lot of the newer modems.

I don't know what chipset it has but Puma is pretty bad and Broadcom is solid.

Thanks, that's it. Unfortunately I can't find what this modem has.

These people say it's clean.

Hardware
Inside the case, Netgear CM1000 is equipped with a Broadcom BCM3390 chipset (the same as its current main competitor, Arris SB8200), 128 MB of flash memory and 256 MB of RAM. Netgear kind of did the same thing as Arris when it wrote in bold letters 'up to 5Gbps', but it has clarified in smaller fonts towards the bottom (just like Arris) that, in reality, you won't be able to get more than 1Gbps out of the port.

It's still a good deal but these were retailing on most sites for about $145 last week, BB even did a price match for me last Sunday. Best deal on these was last month at Target with $20 cartwright coupon, price was about $129
