Re: [Connectivity] Mototola SB 6141

I got the SB 6141 from Amazon.
I had 2 day shipping and it came to $105.93.
I agree on the Zoom 5341J, we both must have got a lemon.
I see a lot of people have them with no problems and like them.
The SB 6141 is better built than the Zoom and has the name Motorola that I have used for many years without any problems.
I just rushed into Zoom because I wanted the 8 channels down and the SB 6141 wasn't on the approved list.
I am glad now that the Zoom crapped out on me.

Can you prove that or is it an opinion ?

and has the name Motorola that I have used for many years without any problems.

Objectively, can we really 100% rely on long time trusted brand names as being of equal quality these days to what they formally were ?

No, it's just my opinion because I have had them both in my hand and know how they feel.
As you pointed out, I like Motorola because I have had great service from them for a long time which I am sure influences my opinion.
I have only had the one contact with Zoom which turned out bad, that is not an opinion, that is a fact.

O/k but that's not a very large *cross section* there eh ?

Whats the difference between the 6121 and the 6141?

The 6121 gives you 4 channels down and 4 up while the 6141 gives you 8 channels down and 4 up.
I am getting the 8 channels down and 2 up, but don't think I will see 4 up anytime soon, if ever.
The modems are almost identical in looks.
