    Good evening and welcome to the Spectrum Community @mmbinder.

    It kind of depends on what you are looking for but I like the Hitron better. Do you have a specific service or capability you are looking at when comparing the two?

    I have both. Been using the Hitron for a few years now and Spectrum just sent me the Arris.

    I'm not sure if I should switch though; the Arris seems like older technology.

    Forget about it. Unless your friendly neighborhood Spectrum CMTS is calling for DOCSIS 3.1 for your throughput tier, DOCSIS 3.0 can’t be beat and i’ve never heard a discouraging word about the Arris TM1602A.
