    Don’t set your watch by the anticipated release date of the SB8200, Arris’s first DOCSIS 3.1 tagged for retail. It’s been a moving target.

    RELATED: Arris DOCSIS 3.1 Retail Modem to Sell for $199.99

    Earlier this week, the Arris store cited an expected release date of Jan. 30, and this morning that date was changed to Feb. 10 (so, you know...keep that in mind as you consider whether to purchase a speedy D3.1 modem for that someone special in your life for Valentine's Day). At last check, a specific expected release date has been replaced with a message that the SB8200 is “available for pre-order only.”

    But the release date should not be far away, as the SB8200 has also shown up for pre-order on Amazon. The initial retail price on the SB8200 has held steady at $199.99.

    Notably, the current Amazon listing notes that the SB8200 has been approved only by Cox Communications so far, adding that similar approvals from Comcast and Charter Communications and other MSOs are “pending.”

    Is there a difference from the model SB6141 to SB8200?

    Hello patrocle,

    The SB8200 can handle more bandwidth to allow for a faster connection if the service you pay for can provide it. If you like, you can compare the specs between them at the links below.

    For one thing, the SB8200 retails for about $130 more than the SB6141 at Amazon. One of the SB8200 features Arris mentions is playing 4K video. My 6141 handles that with no problem.
