No TV monthly Fee= pays for itself
Posted by: Joeyangel510 from: on
Hello readers I purchased this Arris modem so I could stop the monthly Fee from my Comcast provider. I'm a Big Fan of Comcast however I wanted to lower the cost of doing business with them and paying the upfront cost of the Arris 3.0 modem would do this in time and yes it is superior to the combination Modem/ Router I had from Comcast at a $10.00 monthly Fee. My Tech savaay Son liked it a lot and said Dad that's So awesome I think I'll move back Home, I said no no I'll buy you one for Christmas. (LOL) I really like the new Arris modem and in time it will pay for itself and start putting money in my pocket. I waited for two months to write this review to see if it gave me any issues but it is working excellent.
Thank you for Reading

Perfect for Comcast Customers
Posted by: Trosh1nm from: on
If you have Comcast, Xfinity, ect. and connect to the internet via cable. If your internet comes into your home via co-axial cable, I recommend purchasing this product AND a high-power router with external antennas, rather buying a 2-in-1 combo.

Perfect for Top-Tier Internet Speeds
Posted by: Ryan from: on
I had no problems installing and activating this modem with Cox. I subscribe to the Premier Internet package (100 mbps down; 10 mbps up). I upgraded from the SB6141, which only bonds 8 downstream channels. With the SB6141, I saw download speeds of about 105 mbps. After installing the SB6190, my download speeds have increased to nearly 130 mbps. I didn't upgrade my Internet package. Rather, the additional bonded channels provided by the SB6190 provided a noticeable boost in speed.
As such, I would highly recommend this modem to any cable subscriber on a plan with download speeds of at least 100 mbps, especially if you are using a modem that bonds less than 16 downstream channels (such as older SURFboard modems).

Arris SB6190 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem's Performance
Posted by: Gari from: on
This is a top of the line cable modem only (with 32 download bonding channel and 8 upload bonding channel) that could easily satisfy a 300Mbps download / 20Mbps upload or more (Ultimate 300 Plan that I have). I just replaced my Arris SB6183 DOCSIS 3.0 (with 16 download bonding channel and 4 upload bonding channel) with this one, due to the fact that during peaks hours, usually between 5:00 pm to 11:30 pm, on the SB6183, I could only achieved 100 to 150Mbps download and about 10Mbps upload speed. While this ARRIS SB6190 DOCSIS 3.0, at least giving me 200Mbps download and 20+Mbps upload during that peak hours mentioned.
Pros: Still super fast download/upload speeds considering peak hours involved.
Cons: Still pricey. Time Warner Cable still utilizes 16 download bonding channel and 4 upload bonding channel which is the same as my old SB6183, while other cable companies utilizes at least 24 download bonding channel and 8 upload bonding channel to at least sustained download/upload speeds even at peak hours.
NOTES: Time Warner Cable seems to IGNORE the fact that during those peak hours mentioned, a wide area of services experiencing downturn, which means they should have been doing something on their back-end to resolve this issue; however, support phone calls being done are/were fruitless as most of the time were from outsourced sites which mostly giving instructions to reboot the cable modem with no improvement of the issue whatsoever.

Great Top End Cable Modem
Posted by: j21jwc from: on
I purchased this modem to replace an SB6121 so that I could take advance of faster speeds now offered by my internet provider. This modem maxes out speeds over 1GB (1000 MB), so it's future proofed for years. It's definitely not a low budget item, but if you want/need to max out Internet speed, you really can't go wrong here. I've also found it performs well over wireless with my Netgear Nighthawk router.

For quite a long time, I've had Time Warner's fastest available internet. A few months ago, I gave Time Warner their router back and bought Netgear's NightHawk X6. From that alone I noticed a huge difference. I wish I would've bought this modem when I bought my router. Not only am I saving money by using my own hardware, but my network is now flawless. I have extremely fast, extremely reliable and extremely consistent internet now. Both the upload speeds and download speeds are maxed out to this modems capability and I have absolutely zero complaints. This modem is wonderful! If you want the best possible internet, this piece is essential.

Really fast but only if you are subscribed
Posted by: tdt116 from: on
This is a really fast modem but I was maxed out at around 150-170 Mbps with Comcast Blast speed. It didn't give any extra speed compared to the SB6183 (I was only provisioned with 8 downstream channels with both modems) so if you already have the SB6183 with Comcast Blast, don't bother getting the SB6190! Just wait for the next wave of DOCSIS 3.1 modems.

Fast and Easy to Set Up
Posted by: TheMinusFactor from: on
This modem is wonderful. I saw my speedtest.net speeds jump from under 10 Mbps to around 47Mbps after installing. A few things to keep in mind:
1) You will need to have your Internet provider help setup the modem (known as provisioning) if they don't have a web based setup. This will allow your Internet provider to communicate with the modem.
2) You will need a router, WiFi or otherwise to use this if you have more than 1 computer.
Other than that, setup is easy, just requires plugging it into the wall and connecting the coaxial cable from your Internet provider, then call them to have it provision. Took me about 15 minutes, counting the hold time with my Internet Service Provider.
What's in the Box? The modem, a manual, a warranty card, and an Ethernet cable.
