I own a toshiba PCX1100U - its gay. I really shouldve taken the motorola surfboard :(

Here in Phoenix for Cox Cable, it costs $15 a month for rental I think, so youre getting a pretty good deal...do they let you upgrade or swap out for different models?

Own and Surfboard 4100 series. I like it, thought I paid WAY too much for it.

I'm actually ashamed to say I paid $200.

I bought an RCA Cablemodem about two years ago for $100 off of E-bay, back when they were $250 retail. E-bay for Anandtechers is like masturbation for Anandtechres - you all deny doing it, but you need it, use it, and love it more than the rest of the population!

Motorola SB4100. With the amex pricematch and assuming the second rebate arrives, total cost (minus $40)

Lease, but I don't know if I get a discount if I own one. There is the Surfboard now for only $50 this week. Perhaps I should make a call and check it out.

Own.

I've seen the popular Motorola SB4100/SB4200, Toshiba and RCA cable modems for as low as $59 after rebates or $99 without rebates.

Just why exactly is your cable modem homosexual? Or perhaps it's just a happy cable modem?

I also own the Toshiba PCX1100U and have had no problems with it whatsoever. And unless it's humping my router while I'm sleeping I don't see any reason to call it gay.

I lease a Toshiba PCX2200
Time Warner would not give me a price break if I had my own modem.

Own. Motorola 4100. Have had absolutely zero issues or problems with it. Will lose signal once in a blue moon during thunderstorms: simply power down, power back up and all is well again. No way would I ever pay to lease one as you'd have paid for the damn thing in a year or so.

Leased for $3.95/month. SB3100.

I'm planning on buying one in the next couple weeks though since the prices are so reasonable now.
