Motorola SB510 is blazing fast!
I had an old Surfboard modem and was only getting 4 Mbps download speeds, and 300 Kbps upload, while Comcast was advertising up to 10+ Mbps down, and guys I worked with were getting 24-26 Mbps. I purchased and hooked this modem up, ran a speedtest at speakeasy.net and have consistently gotten 18- 25 Mbps download and 1600 Kbps uploads! A vast improvement to say the least.

I am currently using this type of Modem, and have been for over 5 years with no problems. However, I will probably upgrade to a higher Mbps Modem in the near future. I have tried other Modems and this Modem works best for me considering the speed.

It works fine
Nothing to dislike, it works. It's fast. This is now my 4th cable modem in about 11 years, it seems they have all started to fail after so many years. My last one (A DLink DBDCM202) was just as fast, but it failed after about 4 years of use just like all of them have. They start to drop connections and I would have to go re-boot the cable modem. It would get so bad, I had to reboot the modems at least once a day. When it was happening up to 2 times a day, I HAD IT! That was time to buy a Brand New modem! I haven't been using this one now for long, but my original old SURFboard SB4200 only lasted about 4 years as well.
It should be noted that I use my cable modem 24hrs a day around the clock, I never turn them off and I work from home so they get very heavy use, especially since 2007 what with all the TV & Movie content coming right off the Internet now (Netflix Watch Instantly etc.)Read full review
