I didn't want to rent a modem from Comcast/Xfinity or deal with getting a refurbished one from them either. The modem is not large and roughly the sieze of a boxed DVD. I have had no connectivity issues with it what so ever and get 20+mb down and about 5mb up routinely. One of the reasons I chose this modem is to mount it off the desk allowing for reduced clutter. It is configured to mount vertically quite easily. Some other reviewers have had heat issues, I have not. I'd purchase another if needed. I do not use the wifi feature, I I have other routers which serve my needs better.
