For the most part this is a good thing; the hardware cost is reduced and consumers … The signal to noise ratio on these reviews is unbelievable. I have no possible hope that my review could influence the overall score of this device, but I can tell you that if you are one of the lucky people who happen to stumble upon reading my review, please consider my review in the proper context. Part of my trade is a network engineer, but I do not want to bore anyone with technical details. I will try to explain things in terms that are very straightforward:Many cable modems are built with the same or similar components which are developed by chip manufacturers. This particular modem is built using a chip family made by Intel with the brand name “Puma” which is a low cost chip which integrates a lot of the hardware necessary to build a cable modem onto a single chip. Several manufacturers use these chips to build modems, and different models by the same manufacturer may use different vendors’ chips. For the most part this is a good thing; the hardware cost…

DO NOT BUY *****WARNING DO NOT BUY*****It is using a faulty chip that WILL go bad sooner or later. Firmware updates have been rolled out, however it is a HARDWARE issue (hence why none have worked).I doubt many will see this post, which is a shame, but I felt like the least I could do is try and warn others.I can’t post a link, but search for:Intel’s buggy Puma 6 chipset earns Arris a gigabit-modem lawsuitfor more information.

Do Not Buy the SB6190–Unresolved Latency Flaw Do not buy the SB6190–Intel and Arris have acknowledged a latency flaw with the Intel Puma 6 chipset used by this modem (as well as others). Let me start by saying that I purchased another Arris modem (SB8200) to replace this flawed modem, so I have no animosity against Arris…they produce fantastic products…although their handling of this latency issue has been much less than stellar (and is the source of a Class Action Lawsuit).The backstory: I purchased the SB6190 in 2016 as it was the top rated DOCSIS 3.0 modem at the time. After some time, we started noticing network dropouts and unexplained latency. My kids internet gaming suffered as did our video streaming service (i.e. Netflix, etc.). My troubleshooting took me down the path of new cables and other “fixes” with no perceived change. Then I ran across the Class Action Lawsuit against Arris for hiding the fact that the Intel Puma 6 chipset used in the SB6190 had known latency flaws. ALL SB6190 units are…
