“Works great, high performance – I’m using it with RCN 1-Gig Internet service and it works well.” MrBill250 via Best Buy
“Save yourself money – buy your own Cable Modem. For me, this modem worked fine for 200 and 300 download speeds (2 different locations, both on Optimum/Altice’s network).” bah via Best Buy
An excellent choice for Cox Cable – This review is for the ARRIS SURFboard SB6183 – not the 6190. After doing some research I decided on this specific model due to the complaints/issues some were experiencing with the 6190. JustAnOpinion63 via Best Buy

Well worth it - Very impressed with the quality. It looks and even smells like a new unit, and I am 100% happy with my choice to buy refurbished. I switched from an Xfinity Gateway unit, and pay for speeds up to 100mbps down.
