    • Very Good DOCSIS 3.0 Modem - Works with CoxCommunitcations, October 6, 2011By MGI bought this modem after my 6.5 year old Terayon died a slow painful death. That is a longstory. Well, I have had this modem for 2 weeks so far and it works great. It does run a littlewarmer than a DOCSIS 2.0 modem(but not hot), but I think it is well worth it. I also keep mine ina well-ventilated area, so no worries. I have a mid-tier plan with Cox Communications and thishas cured all of my problems.Oddly, I saw a lot of new people pop up when searching for wireless networks around me. Iassumed that I was losing bandwidth to the increase in use over the past year or two. It wasclearly the modem. I was to the point prior to this purchase of being unable to do any gamingand netflix streaming for the past two months was a gamble.Now, all is well and all of my services are working as well as I would have hoped. I have regularlytested on speedtest.net, just to see what I am getting now. A rough average for me is:50 Mbps down5 Mbps up30 ms PingHowever sometimes it is a little higher or lower, for instance yesterday I downloaded an 80MBpodcast and it took 8 seconds, so do the math on that. and it works out to about 80 Mbpsdownload. So, I do believe that if you have the bandwidth in your local area, future proof withDOCSIS 3.0Lastly, the design of this cable modem is great. It is compact and attractive, even though I havedone a good job of hiding it. To quote my wife "its really cute"Very Good Modem, October 23, 2011By AZ RogerI updated my Motorola modem from DOCSIS 2.0 to a Motorola DOCSIS 3.0. I had done someresearch on different brands and DOCSIS 2 vs 3, and was pleased with the product. I had a verynoticeable improvement immediately in download speed via Cox cable.The modem was easy to install and get updated the logged into the Cox records (by calling Cox).It gets slightly warm, but probably less than my old one - as it has better ventilation holes. Itwas delivered in just a few days - faster than expected. Page 2 of 5
    • SB6121 is just plain FAST!, February 3, 2012By azloaferI replaced my old Motorola SB5101 with this newer SB6121 after reading some articles that saidthe 2.0 modems could be slowing your cable connection down even though you are paying for ahigh speed connection. Well, I gave it some thought, after all this modem is not cheap. OK, Iwent for it and ordered the SB6121 after reading all the reviews.While waiting for the shipment I did a speed test at an ISP approved site on the Internet. I didthe test at 8:00PM which is a really busy time. I logged the results and saved them so that Icould do the same test over with the new modem at the same time of the evening. I should addthat I repeated the speed tests several times so that I could weed out any odd incidents. Itturned out that nothing strange happened.The new modem arrived and setup was easy. The first time I attempted to connect to the netwith Cox Cable a screen came up that said I should call Cox for help. I did and Cox needed threedifferent numbers from the modem label. They reset the modem and added it to my accountand everything was working within 15 minutes. They did all the work on their end. Then camethe speed test to see if I wasted my money or if it was a good investment.First the old modem DOWN SPEED: 19:41 Mbps UP SPEED: 8:08 MbpsNow the new modem DOWN SPEED: 21:30 Mbps UP SPEED: 16:16 MbpsNow you can see that there is not much of a change in the down speed, BUT the UP SPEED,which is the speed with which you connect to any site on the net, had doubled! In real world usewhat does this mean?I can tell you that it is STUNNING! It made me say wow! My wife, sitting in another room, saidwhat is going on? I told her to turn her laptop on. She is connected wirelessly. I said just connectto several of your favorite sites and see if you notice any difference in the connection.In a few minutes she was saying, "Gee, that is faster!" The bottom line is that the MotorolaSB6121 3.0 Modem is worth every penny. If you are using a 2.0 modem and are paying for ahigh speed cable connection, the newer 3.0 modem will be what you need. Google for speed testsites that are free and compare your present reading to mine if you have a 2.0 and that shouldtell you what you should do. Best money that I have spent in a long time.Excellent choice for new modem, May 8, 2011By Michael BI has having good success with a 3-year old Motorola Surfboard modem, but had been readingthat newer modems = faster speeds without having to upgrade service. I checked with Cox Page 3 of 5
    • Communications to see if the SB6121 was compatible with their service and they said it was so Iordered it.Plugged it in and called them with the MAC & Serial numbers - was up and running in 6 minutes,including 3 minutes of hold time and a minute to restart my router and computer.Ran a speed test through speedtest.net prior to switching modems. Old modem had PING of27ms, 23.77Mbps download, 2.62Mbps upload.New modem test 10 minutes later: PING 18mx, 41.19Mbps download, 4.33Mbps upload.Not bad for a $100 investment and no additional charges from Cox.Highly recommended if your provider is setup to operate with this modem.Great Cable Modem, May 23, 2011By Chipbuilder1This Cable Modem works just as advertised, it is easy to install and just works. I am getting thebest download and upload of data I have ever seen from the COX network.This Modem Rocks!, June 6, 2011By EUSCFZI am using this modem on cox Cable in orange county.It is not yet on the approved list, but theSB6120 is.As soon as I hooked it up, my data rates were much faster.Almost doubled my speed, December 20, 2011By Video Services OfVaReceived today and am using Cox cable Premier speeds.
