Addendum May 11, 2010:
FYI, for a time frame of reference, I originally bought this cable modem in November 2008. Then I posted my review (the above paragraph) in February 2009. And it is May 2010 now as I write this addendum. This SB5120 cable modem has been working fine for me. Knock on wood. The only "problems" I have had was needing to reboot my Netgear wi-fi router every once in a while. That's not often, but that's something to be expected. And that's just the router. The modem has been working fine. If this modem ever begins to go out, I'll probably look into getting another cheap used SB5120 (and then I'll have to call Cox and switch over the modems). I'm still a happy camper with this Motorola SURFboard SB5120 cable modem.
so I spent quite sometimes to research, what I have and what I actually needed, this is it! This is exactly what I wanted for a general user(I consider myself is a power-user who is on the computer alot). After some research, I just needed a dumpeddown gently used modem and works for a NYC Time Warner Cable (The TWCrook) customer. SO I ordered this used one, thinking to myself, $9.95 with free prime shipping, what do I have to lose is just $10! I got the modem today, set it up, called Time Warner and activated the it with its MAC(Media Access Control) number, and that's it, Wah La, it's working! NO HASSLE! and they took off my $5.99 charge a month. I have been fooled to pay $2.99 for 12 months to lease their modem, and then they upped the price to $5.99 a month for a high-bandwidth modem that I do not need. I am paying a "turbo" service at the moment, which has a download rates in average 18Mbps, 20Mbps on a good day. All i need is a modem that would accept 20-50Mbps rate. This one is it. For $10, I get the modem, the wall-plug power adapter and even a good length ethernnet cable!
The reason I only gave 4 stars is because I haven't used this modem long enough yet, Hope this modem won't die on me the first week. I will keep you kids posted if anything happens! so go get yourself a cheap modem and not fooled by TimeWarnerCrooks!!!!
I will say that the unit itself has a reasonably small form factor (considerably smaller than those older Surfboard modems) and unlike my old DSL modem, I don't hear a 800000000000Hz whine when the thing is plugged in, which makes my sanity happy. Also, the Standby button is pretty awesome, since it doesn't actually drop your connection.
All in all, there's nothing I don't like about this thing. So my relatively technically ignorant review yields four stars.
Reliability: This modem is now on its 4th year of use, and still works just as well as it did the first day I got it.
Installation: Incredibly easy, you take it out of the box and plug it in. The most "difficult" part is calling your cable provider and reading off the MAC address on the label, and that was only a hassle because Comcast spent 10 minutes trying to convince me that I needed to install their software on my computer, instead of just taking the 10 seconds it took them to make the change.
Ease of Use: Once it's hooked up, you don't have to touch it. Perfect.
Features: fast, stable cable internet, and it saves you $3-5 a month vs renting. The modem has paid for itself.
