You will be pleased if my experience is like yours.

The ONLY thing that's even mildly negative (and I'm grasping here to find anything other than effusive praise) is that the front panel LEDs are a bit bright, to the extent that the downstream/upstream indicators wash out the adjacent power and connectivity LEDs. Those latter two are supposed to be green but they appear to be white due "light spillage" from the adjacent LEDs. I replaced the leased SBG6850 (more features than necessary for me along with the rental fee) with this cable modem and have been nothing but pleased...and it plays a dual role as a serviceable nightlight in the office!

Regardless of HSI Tier I would only purchase at a minimum an 8 Channel Down Modem.
Arris SB6141 would be my absolute min.
If you have Cox Phone, you can get the Cisco DPQ3212 eMTA for free through Cox, That is what I did.

What HSI Tier are you paying for, look at your bill.
Preferred HSI - 100/10Mbps
Premiere HSI - 50/5Mbps
Essential HSI - 15/2Mbps

TiVo Roamio Pro, Premiere XL4, Premiere 2TB-WD20EURS, TiVo Mini
Win7 WMC SiliconDust HDHomeRun Prime, Cisco Tuning Adapter Status Troubleshooting
