If you're paying your ISP a monthly modem rental fee, you might as well be throwing money into a black hole. It's never too late to buy your own though, and today's deal offers a great opportunity.

The Mortorola SB6141 is the best cable modem for almost everyone, but at its usual ~$85 selling price, it can take a year or more to pay for itself. If that's scared you off in the past, you'll be pleased to know that you can get a refurb from Woot today for just $55 shipped. You'll want to check your ISP's website for a list of approved modems to be safe, but this is almost surely one of them. [Woot]

Update: This Amazon Local coupon can save you an additional $5.
