Amazon offers the NETGEAR DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem (CM500) for $44.99 shipped when you clip the on-page coupon. For comparison, Walmart sells it for closer to $70 and this is a match for our last mention. Most people rent a cable modem from their ISP, but that can cost you up to $120 per year. Avoid those pesky fees with a one-time $45 investment here. Be sure to check with your ISP before purchasing, however, to verify that this model will work. Rated 3.9/5 stars from thousands.
