Value for money:
(ratings match consensus)
Initial on 04/08Scores are kept low only because of what I know... pre-sales info was easily found. Install was a breeze. With a little research from DSLR I obtained a SB6210 and a WNDR3700. Install time was about 45 minutes. So far so good, rock solid signal levels.
Update on 04/09: Just VNC'd into my work box, HUGE improvement over AT&T. Much more responsive, looks like AT&T was holding me back there.
Update on 04/11: Ran my 35 car iRace, service was fantastic. Consistent 100 millisecond pings, the switch will begin tomorrow.
Update on 05/03: Had an issue with disconnects.and posted in the Comcast Direct forum. ComcastSteve reprovisioned my modem on the 21st, log files clean since then. Very surprised and pleased with the Comcast quality.
Update on 07/06: Still a happy customer, now have 3 upstream channels bonded. Service is working smoothly.
10/9/2012 - Second go with a packet loss issue, previous time was a few months ago and correct in a couple of weeks. This time it has been more difficult and as such the scores have been down graded heavily. Support sees no issue, Comcast Steve has been very little help. Getting tons of ranging errors, not sure if this is a firmware issue or something else.
3/8/2013 - Packet loss has been clear about 3ish months now. No contact from Comcast telling me the issue but the problems I was seeing with channel 2 upstream not ranging have gone away. All channels up and with decent signal levels.
Confused I was confused about your post. I thought it was going to be some negative review... Judging by the Subject.

Rock solid signal levels? But only 50% when it comes to connection reliability? Wow! I had to see what happens if you have a downtime incident. :P

Re: Rock solid signal levels?
said by Nightfall:This was after only a few hours of initial testing, assuming it gets my Monday iRacing league race I'll up the scores. I have very good feelings about this but want to make sure the signal is stable before switching fully and upping the scores.

Re: I'm just curoius...
said by fonzbear2000:1) I'm not, signal levels are fine.
Why are you basing everything on iRace which is an online game?
2) iRacing is what I do, hence I need consistent pings... I could give a shat if I can download at some super duper rate if I have all kinds of jitter. Therefore my review will be based on the iRacing sim working as flawless as it did on AT&T.
