Amazing Race doesn't go by "annual" seasons, it goes by how many "races" they've aired. I don't watch, but I believe they have 2 races per year.

Thanks. Any idea how long you've had it? I'm wondering how much warranty is left. I've never had a failure, but it would be just my luck. :)

I've decided to go with the 6183 for the modem (just because it's a newer model in the series) and will order it tomorrow, just in case someone chimes in before then with a reason not to.

Thanks for the numbers. I also went by Bryan's post rather than look it up, so I have the "Preferred" tier too. :) Looks to me like Up speed won't increase, but the Down will, significantly. I guess...

It does and the 5-star to 1-star ratio is quite a bit better. I just know nothing about TP-Link and I don't like D-Link products. :)

Bryan, I have no use for the phone and I'd prefer not to get a phone just to get a free modem.

FWIW, I'm leaning toward the Arris SB6183 @ $126, but wasn't sure if the higher price was worth it...

I'm ready to upgrade my modem and router for DOCSIS 3.0, so I'm wondering what folks are using with Cox Cable these days. My current speeds are 16.5 down/7 up and we have no problems with...

Technically incorrect, there are plenty of exceptions to the general rule, just as there will be with the Confederate flag, and right now they're just taking it off public flagpoles, etc.

It is a good deal, "renewed" Pros are going for $380 on Woot. But let's not forget that you got a "new" unit and the $763 includes tax. Still, it's a $95 discount overall with the same warranty, etc.
