If you’ve been keeping up to date with our blog, you know that we’ve always been a big fan of Netgear. They’re a high-quality manufacturer of both consumer and business equipment. One of the things that stand out about their brand is the unique combination of reliability and progress. Often, users find that buying the latest cutting edge technology is a bit of a double edge sword. You get access to the latest and greatest, but you’re at risk for paying a premium for hardware that still has issues that were left in as the product was rushed to market. Netgear doesn’t generally suffer from these problems. They aren’t always the first to market, but they rarely release anything unreliable.
We’ve already reviewed the fastest and best cable modems, but technology is advancing every day. When Netgear announced the CM700 32×8 Cable Modem, we had to try it for ourselves. What we found is that Netgear offers the same top tier performance we’d expect from a high-end cable modem, with a few subtle performance tweaks that make it a great buy.
