Modem/WiFi router combo- Is yours working for you??? Recommendations needed!

I want to purchase a modem/WiFi/router all in one device that is compatible with xfinity x1 rather than having to rent from Comcast. After looking at reviews online, all I saw were complaints about how everything had slow speeds and constant loss of service. If you own your combo modem/WiFi router and it IS working successfully for you with X1, I would love your recommendations. TIA😀

Approved modems have to match your speed tier.

Thank you, yes, I looked and my list had 3 models on it. The Netgear CAX80(whisch has not been released yet), the NetgearC7800, and the Arris SBG8300.

 

I looked up each of them and the reviews were all about the same. Half of the reviewers loved their model and the others said that their model was terrible and warned consumers to “never buy” it. 

 

I was was hoping to get better info from Xfinity users who have these models, or others that may also work with my service.  I probably should have put this model #’s in my original post.

So what’s my best bet to go with? I’m on the 600 download speed plan and I have X1 service.
