The Model MB7420 is a 16×4 686 Mbps DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem certified by a number of leading cable service providers including Comcast XFINITY, Time Warner Cable, Cox, and BrightHouse. Certified for speed tiers up to and including Comcast Xfinity Extreme 250, TWC Ultimate, and Cox Ultimate. Owning this modem eliminates modem rental charges that are often $100 or more per year. With easy installation, high-speed, broad compatibility, and superb customer support, Model MB7420 is the perfect choice for almost any cable modem user. 16 X 4 performance means that up to 16 cable data channels carry data from the Internet, sixteen times faster than DOCSIS 2.0; and up to 4 channels carry data to the Internet. A Full-Band Capture digital tuner helps assure consistently fast speeds from your service provider. MB7420 does not include a Wi-Fi Router or VoIP telephone adapter. It includes a 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) port for a high-speed connection of a router, computer, HDTV, game station, or other Ethernet-capable device. Setup is fast and easy with a few quick steps set out in a Quick Start guide. Experienced USA-based customer support specialists are ready and willing to help if you need them. Model MB7420’s compact, attractive design saves space and looks good in any home or office. This product is backed by a two-year warranty and features ruggedized lightning and power surge circuits to provide additional protection of your investment. DOCSIS 3.0, 2.0, and 1.1 support and Cable Labs certification ensure compatibility with services nationwide. Best of all, the MB7420 offers the value, performance, and attention to quality that continue to make Motorola the leading brand of cable modems. Please note that the MB7420 plugs easily into computers, HDTVs, and other Ethernet-capable devices including any router of your choice, but the MB7420 does not have a built-in Wi-Fi router. Motorola Model MG7310, for instance, has both a cable modem and a built-in router.

Heat and Power Measurements This review is being written the same day I got the modem, so don’t rely on it for long term impressions. The setup process went fine and the modem works correctly. I’m getting the speeds that I pay for, same as what I had previously. I purchased the modem because my provider is in the process of upgrading their network, and when the upgrades are complete I’ll need a 16 channel modem to remain on my current plan with the new speeds they’ll offer. I wanted to write this review to provide some useful data for anyone else considering this model, because it’s something I wish I could have found documented for newer modems before I purchased it.First is the heat produced by the device. I’ve attached a photo taken with a thermal camera, showing the modem after being in use for 2 hours. It reads 111 degrees Fahrenheit at the hottest point. (Approx. 44 degrees Celcius) This means that the modem is warm to the touch, but not hot.I also measured the idle power…

Learned Too Late – After signal loss would not automatically reconnect and was not discoverable from ISP side. – It took two months of unreliable internet to realize that the problem was this modem that did not detect when it had lost signal, and could not be detected by the ISP when it went into this state where all the lights indicated it was online, but it wasn’t. So every time there was a internet glitch where signal was lost momentarily, the only way to get back online was to physically power it off, disconnect the cable for several seconds and then re-power the modem which would then reconnect to the isp and work great until another glitch… it didn’t detect so it never attempted to reconnect.. Having the isp attempt a modem reset had no impact. My modem is on another floor, so I was getting weary. The only way I discovered the issue was absolutely the modem was disconnecting it from the cable while it was still powered on. There it set all its indicator lights indication normal online connection. So, by the time we figured all this out the return deadline had passed. That sucks and so…
