    "Good !...Love it...I bought this modem to eliminate the $10 cable modem fee I paid my cable company it's more reliable and faster than the one the cable gives you, i've had it for a couple months and it's been working perfectly I recommend it for anybody who doesn't want to pay the ridiculous cable modem fee from the cable company or Internet provider....Great DOCSIS 3 cable modem -- was going to go with the newer DOCSIS 3.1 model, but it was about $100 more, and my ISP can't push those "gigabit" speeds yet, anyway -- I've had Motorola SB modems since about 2002, and they are the best there is, for regular HSI over coax -- reliable -- LEDs are not too crazy bright -- 16 channels down, 4 up -- great speeds -- plug and play (after calling ISP to have them provision) -- recommended"

    "Love it...5 stars...I was leasing/renting a cable modem from a internet provider and not getting very good usage out of my modem because I started to upgrade my home to be a smart home....(Note: If you're a Xfinity customer who has voice service, this modem is not compatible with Xfinity Voice because it's not a voice gateway, and the box explicitly states that.) If you're a Xfinity customer that really wants to maximize their home internet speed and maximize their home wireless speed, this is one half of your solution."

    "It's ok...Love it....As far as the modem itself goes it works fantastic and if this review was just on the equipment it'd be a 5 star review, however since this asks for OVERALL rating I have to take into account other factors such as support and I must say without a shadow of a doubt that Netgear support is the absolute worst....The Arris is a white vented unit and the status lights ar extremely bright and difficult to suffuse without throwing a towel over the unit - which would make it overheat."
