Netgear CM500V Discontinued???

I'm trying to purchase a cable modem with voice capability to replace my Comcast rental.  I've read reviews and looks like the Netgear CM500V is a good option.  Unfortunately, I cannot find this modem anywhere (out of stock).  Is this modem discontinued?  If so, what suggested replacement should I look for?

I'm not sure if it is discontinued or not. If you still want the Netgear brand, then this is the only current alternative I can find is the Netgear C7100v. The regular eMTAs I can find aren't as good channel bonding wise. Right now, the only highly good for channel bonding are gateways with voice. Another one is the Arris SVG2482-AC.

It's most likely just out of stock because of extremely high demand - it's a rare breed of eMTA modem that can support Comcast's 250 Mbps download speed and is not saddled with the awful Intel Puma6 chipset.
