    "i love...Love !...Motorola's data sheet specifically lists the SB6141 as IPv6 ready and tests with an Apple AirPort Extreme (v7.6.4) and MacBook Pro running 10.9 confirm this....This modem is great for time warner customers (now spectrum ) also because I have my own wireless router not only am I saving 10$ monthly rental fee for the modem twc spectrum provides but im saving an additional 4.99 fee for wireless because I am using my own wireless router and this modem does not have built in wifi, This pays for itself my internet bill went from 50.00$ a month to 34.99 a month , and I am getting faster service and speed compared to twc spectrums modems , this is a must have "

    "It's ok...Love It...Tablo, our go to Apple TV connected DVR-antenna-recording alternative to cable, is now almost instantaneous once channels are selected in changing stations....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."

    "I love...Not bad...Although we never have a need to be actively connected to the internet on more than 3-4 devices at a time it seems to handle simultaneous connection to our 3 laptops, a tablet, and three phones pretty well....I love that it takes up very little space, but due to not having external antennas, it goes out a lot if being used for wifi access for smartphones, but is fine with being used for laptops and computers if you don't mind a few delays and even though it's a dual- band wireless-n router with built in cable modem, it's difficult to get the secondary band to function and wouldn't recommend it for large homes but it's rather more suitable for apts."
