Re: [Connectivity] Mototola SB 6141
The 6141 is no longer available on Amazon. I almost bought it from the same link the other day. But today, it's gone and they have their "we don't know if it'll be back" disclaimer posted. I wonder what happened?
A couple hours ago it was up still(Around 5 PM Eastern) from 2 listings with about 15 or so in stock. I have no idea what happened lol.
This morning, Amazon shows the SB6141 back in stock by only one seller (Miakota) for $109.95 plus $4.99 shipping.
Must be a hot item now that it's finally on Comcast's approved DOCSIS devices list.
Now up to $114.95 with free shipping. Guess I should have gotten it when it was $97. I'll stick with the Ubee and get the Netgear R6300 first, while the 6141 wavers in price. Then pick it up when the price stabilizes. Only 6 left though.
You are going to like that modem when you do get it.
Mine has been running for two months without any problems.
I know that doesn't say much longevity wise, but if it's like all other Motorola products I have owned, it will be like that for many years.
I was looking at the 6141 and the Zoom 5341J. Any insights?
Either option should go for you well. I always will look at the popularity and how well known the company is. Alot of people know Motorola Sufboard modems, seems very synonymous with cable internet and reliability. Zoom modems I'm sure are the same though I wouldn't know from personal experience.
Back in the Dino Days, Zoom was the leader in Dial-up. I was looking at it before the SB because it had all the notoriety before the SB caught on. These days it's hard to tell unless you get one and try it. That can be expensive and troublesome.

I tried the Zoom 5341J modem for a few days then it crapped out and I had to send it back.
That doesn't mean all Zoom modems are bad, I just happen to get a bad one. I did notice the SNR on all 8 channels were a little better with the Zoom, but not by enough to make any difference.
I went to the SB6141 as soon as it was on the accepted list, mainly because of my experience with Motorola products over the years.
