    "Love It...It's ok...This is the perfect modem for anybody was a high-speed ISP provider such as Comcast I am I currently have Comcast and I am able to push almost 350 mix down as well as 30 to almost 35 megs up but dad is currently with my 250 extreme package so with this modem I am almost adding an additional hundred megs just with the modem all alone but I also highly recommend that you also grab a router that supports this high-speed modem...This unit worked way better than the generic cable provider's unit (150-175MBps better) but I had to justify the price and since I'll just have to pay the $10 rental fee to the cable company for another 4 months or so, I decided to return this unit and upgrade to docsis 3.1 when I move to my new place."

    "Good !...not bad...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....Right now my connection maxes out around 192Mbps with Boost so I'm not hitting the limits of the modem but I plan on having this modem for many years to come so if I eventually am able to upgrade to 250 or 300Mbps it will be able to handle it and not be pushing the limits of its capabilities, even with Boost pushing it over my rated speed."

    "A plus...Love it...This cable modem is a very good choice for people who want to shave cost off their monthly cable bill and the modem's ability to support up to 680 Mbps means that when higher speed cable internet becomes more affordable you can easily opt for the speed bump without the need to purchase a new cable modem....Bought this Cable modem so I could stop paying rental to Time Warner Cable, Modem worked great for 3 months then the upstream light would not change from orange to green, tried troubleshooting with Time Warner for about an hour without success, returned the modem for an upgrade CM600 gave Time Warner the mac address and instantly I got internet."

    "It's ok...Worth 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....With our new 4k Ultra HD tv purchase, we needed a high quality modem to offer high speed internet access and this modem does just that."

    "I love...no lag....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."
