Good Product - Bad Shipping
 
The unit itself is well built, easy to assemble and good looking. There's really not much more to a server rack. The side panels don't feel very secure, but maybe that's because the entire unit is slightly warped due to shipping. Speaking of shipping, it was terrible to say the least. The box had at least 100 pieces of tape along the sides and not a one spanned the entire length of the box. The box was littered with holes and the integrity of the single wall cardboard was that of crumpled-u...

Thorough Review, Assembly Notes, & Dell Rapid Rail Kit Installation
 
Pros:Although not as sleek as a Dell cabinet, these are great looking. Well made. Have good build materials. And a Lifetime warranty. The actual Rack Posts (4) are designed for use with the "universal" Cage Nuts and Screws (a bag of about 10-20 are included), which is very nice.Setup is pretty simple for the technically inclined (takes about 2-3 hrs, if it's your first one). Most of it can be assembled without even looking at the instructions. You mainly need the instructions to determine which ...

Good Rack, Horrible shipping, Useless Customer Service
 
The rack is great quality. The panels are solid, as are the doors and hardware. In fact I have relatively few complaints about the case and would have loved to like it. If you're mounting standard depth servers you won't have much room for cabling down the side of the rack since the rails have to be nearly all the way to the back. Same goes for installing PDUs.What burned me was the shape of the box. Like one other poster mentioned the rack came boxed HORRIDLY. The box had holes in it and was ma...

Absolute worst packaging I have ever seen
 
I was very excited about this rack but was weary of the packaging after reading the other reviews. It arrived today packed in a manner that was wholly inadequate for an object of this size and weight. There was a gaping hole in the box ([...] and the packing material inside provided virtually no protection for the individual parts ([...] Pretty much every surface of this rack had paint chipped off down to the metal, bent steel, dents, and various deformations. I'm sure this would have been a...

Decent Product / Absolutely No Support or Ownership from StarTech
 
The cabinet is built well, though the standard exhaust fans are general AC full speed fans which you'll probably want to replace with the variable speed DC variety depending on the cabinets intended location to reduce fan noise. With the inlet being located on the back, at least for my intended configuration, I will most likely also need to install fans in the bottom to push more air towards the front of the cabinet as the cabinet tends to let components in the front heat up a bit more than I w...

Very sturdy build
 
+4 stars for the quality of the product and the ease of putting it together, the price, and the free shipping with prime. The rack is high quality and all the parts fit together very well. It comes with all the hardware you need and includes rack screws and nuts.-1 star for the box being packed loose and looking as though it was mauled by a bear.

I agree. Good product. Horrible packaging
 
When my shippment arrived the box was literally falling apart with gaping holes in it. I was amazed that none of the parts were missing. I question whether I recieved a package that was previously shipped and returned. One of the corners of the cabinet door was damaged with a slight bend. But I was able to bend it back to the point that it was pretty much unnoticeable. I purchased it for work and needed to install it right away so I decided to keep it rather than going through the trouble s...

Sturdy final product, poor assembly, poor packaging for shipping
 
Received this item quickly from Amazon.The good: It's well built (tight fitting panels), and deep enough to fit full-length servers with room to spare. I can't say enough about how sturdy this thing is once put together. It has lots of room and slots for cable management, and does its primary job (holding servers/network equip) extremely well. The vertical mounting rails come pre-aligned and I didn't have to fuss with them at all when installing servers.The bad:Assembly: Don't bother using t...

Solid cabinet!
 
Very solid cabinet. Easy to put together and looks sharp. The wheels are sturdy and the locks are solid. This cabinet will provide a secure environment as the walls and floor of this cabinet do not contain any holes for intruding hands or fingers to reset network gear or unplugging cables. My only concern is the 2 slots on top for running cables into, my be wide enough for some to snake their hands into. You may want to look into getting covers for those slots if you need a VERY secure cabinet....
