There have been a lot of "what type of modem is best" threads, and I was hoping that a poll would help shed light on which one(s) are most used. Perhaps some comments on how much you like your modem would also be useful.

Aunt in Hightstown, New Jersey uses the SB4200 Cable Modem - Overall the connection and speed has been fairly fine, no complaints.

Although this may be a good thread to see what cable modem uses, it doesn't show what is the "best" cable modem used with Comcast - Everyone has different opinions.

Yeah, but it might help some people by seeing which one is most popular.

Plus, taking polls is fun!:D

Been using the Linksys BEFCMU10 for nearly a year (I own it) and it's been rock solid. No issues, no complaints. The Linksys replaced an RCA DCM235 that worked very well until the power cord started getting flakey.

RCA DCM225 here since @Home !! Never had any issues with modem - not even with power cord which locks securely in place.

It has worked fine since I signed up with @home in August 2001, fine with ATTBI, fine with Comcast.

I have a Toshiba PCX1100 but its the older version without the USB port. I voted for the PCX1100U since it was the closest option.

Yes, by a large lead... I'm surprised there aren't more people using older SurfBoards, and I'm surprised by how many people use Linksys modems.

RCA DCM 305 - Comcast replaced my COM21 free of charge after their software upgrade didn't work with the COM21's and there were alot of folks really slowed down!
