Arris sb6190

Is the ARRIS SB6190 bug free as of now. I want to own my own modem rather than paying monthly. I am on Premier but may go to Ultimate soon.

    There is a new firmware for the 6190 that improves it's stability quite a bit. For what it's worth it doesn't appear you're renting a modem from us.

    Seems the new firmware goes a long way toward fixing the problem but doesn't quite fix it 100%

    Have you considered the Netgear CM600 modem?  It uses a broadcom chipset and offers 24x8 channels which is plenty for Ultimate.  Check out part number CM600-1AZNAS on amazon its $90:

    Another option is the Arris SB8200 which uses a broadcom chipset, it will deliver 32x8 DOCSIS 3.0 channels and will work with DOCSIS 3.1 once Cox rolls that out.  However, its over 2x the price of the CM600
