Not a bad price. It is pretty old modem.

Nice.. Was just thinking of looking for a good refurb deal on a surfboard to save me some money on rental every month.

Hopefully this will work out well. Thanks!

I'm wondering if this is really worth it to get. From what I understand the cable company will continue to fake excuses saying it's not compatible or such in order to keep paying the rental fee in the contract

No. They can't stop you from buying your own compatible ones.

Not true. Just check with your cable company for a list of compatible modems. This is an old modem and I wouldn't buy it - go with the SB6141 instead - $31.99 on eBay (refurbished).

just got a used one on eBay for $12. I'd rather go with used than a refurb.

They don't care. Just call them and give them the mac address. Just don't expect any support when you're using your own modem.

For the same money, go with the SB6141, twice the download channels.

One thing to be aware of, Comcast has the SB6121 listed as only consumer units being activated, so beware the source of these units if you plan to use with Comcast/Xfinity.

I've bought several refurbished pieces of network gear in the past. Never again.

3 different brands, 3 different routers, I've never been able to get more than a year of use out of them. This is my personal experience which I share with my customers. When something fails in a router, I cannot repair it, so buy new.
