Ok, so i'm finally biting the bullet and getting Comcast Blast internet.

So should i go with the popular Motorola 6121, or my preferred Zoom 5341?

Anyone here have experience with either of these?

I bought a 6120 years ago and it's been perfectly reliable. No complaints.

BTW I suggest buying one instead of leasing from Comcast. I think it saves like $5 or something on your bill and they are only $60 or so on Amazon or elsewhere.

Ya they want $8 to lease one, so i'd much rather own it.

Thanks, gellar

The modem linked above is the current version of my modem, the 6121. It's worked fine. You can still buy my modem from amazon for $67, compared to $80 for the 6141 (I would just buy the 6141 today).

THat's the one I bought and it works great.

Also beware when renting from comcast.  Check out this article.  It's utter bullshit
