Yes, but in order to fully utilize MAXX you will need the SB6183 or any modem that supports 16x4 bonding. Same applies for combo units.

Point was that just the release of a few 6183 modems at inflated prices caused a 13.5% drop in the price of the 6141, which is more modem than most of us need.

I believe you can order it from Best Buy for the $129.  I got mine from Best Buy when they first came out down in Chula Vista.  I read a post of someone getting a shipping notification the next day when they ordered.  I think people are like me, and just think of Best Buy as brick and mortar only, and give up if not at their local store.

I see www.woot.com (Amazon) has the 6141 official manufacturer refurbished for $49.99 plus $5 shipping today if anybody's interested:

Yeah I saw that at woot.com last night, but its sold out already.
When will TWC San Diego raise the standard internet speed to 50-100Mb/s anyway? Early 2015 maybe?

Probably next year, as they still need to do tests, and make sure the network is capable of 16x4.

Best Buy has it for only 129.99 which is a good deal compared to 190. Even if you have to pay for the shipping, then you are still saving money over Amazon.

Has anyone actually purchased/received this product from BB? Actual shipping time? Online reviews I've read indicate massive quality problems.

Glad I grabbed my SB6141 when I did for $77.

There are reviews that indicate it, and on DSLReports a few people were able to get them at BestBuy, but they are hard to find in store.

In stock now at Amazon - $129
Price:

$129.99 & FREE Shipping. Details

In stock but may require an extra 1-2 days to process.
Ships from and sold by Amazon.com. Gift-wrap available.
 
Per the Best Buy web site, they say it's available for immediate pickup in at least La Jolla and CMR. My concern is that TW is so far away from rolling out their highest speeds, that I will be past the return date if the 6183 fails. So I plan to wait until their new speed roll out before I buy one.

I'm using a SB6141 and getting around 60 Mbps on a 50 Mbps account. Go figure...
