It would be better for me to hear from someone on the community that is actually running their 6000 series with it.

Well, that's not what you asked for. You just asked for "a review", and DSLReports is one of the best forums for things like that.

If you would have specifically asked for U-verse AND how the service relates to use with Flex Radios, I wouldn't have replied.

Many people have had issues with ham HF signals disrupting their U-Verse service.  (VDSL2 technology uses carriers from near DC to over 8 MHz, including the lower HF ham bands.) It has nothing to do with the Flex products, however.

My experiences with this are here: http://www.aa6e.net/wiki/Internet_Service_Providers.

Reggie,
I have AT&T UVerse running; currently in my new home in Amelia Island IOTA NA-138 . I am using a Flex-6700 into a dummy load using version1.4 since that was the last version I operated, before I moved.  So far, I have not noticed any anomaly.  
Just in case you need to know, all utilities are underground and all fluorescent lights have been removed; as a result, I have very low noise level but not quite as good as it was in Fallbrook, CA. 
I expect to be on the air by the end of November...

Ernest - You're not likely to have TVI problems if you're feeding a dummy load!  Hope it still works when you try an antenna.  My problem was RF getting into the low-level incoming U-Verse signal on phone lines and overloading the sensitive Residential Gateway.

I failed to note that I have plugged in a 6 meter vertical that is a ground level. But, you are correct about the dummy.  Tnx

We have had some reports of Uverse routers not properly allocating IP addresses to the FLEX-6000 via the DHCP server it uses.  Using a third-party firewall-router has helped in these cases.

i'm an att u-verse subscriber and do NOT like it. $45 / mo, and only 1.5 mbps download; upload, slower than Christmas...the att router / wireless wifi unit needs heavy choking on both power, ethernet, and phone lines, if I transmit legal limit on 160m...( ok it IS a small lot )...otherwise, it
falls apart like a cheap suit...netflix playbacks need tons of buffering at low resolution, too..

totally un impressive and a rip-off, IMHO; few options exist at this qth..

You need to find out if the Uverse is DSL based or fiber. I've heard that some cities have fiber to the house but MOST are DSL links over the phone line to the house. I will never use DSL again, tried it years ago and everytime I got on HF it would kill the DSL link! The frequencies used for DSL are just too close to HF. Plus is REALLY slow compared to cable, I get 100 MB here.
