Categories > Server Racks / Cabinets > Norco Technologies Inc. > Norco R4-15U 15U 4 Post Open Frame Steel Rack

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4 Decent rack
Pros: Sturdy construction, seems like it will hold my gear just fine.
Good price range.
Cons: Disappointed in the packaging. It arrived very scuffed up in 4 places because the feet were not secure in the box, and must have moved quite a bit during shipping. Not too big of a deal. though as 2 of those places get covered and the other 2 areas I have facing the wall.

Also very disappointing that it is 15U but only comes with the hardware to fill one-half to one-third of those slots with 1U gear. It really wouldn't cost much to throw in 20 more nuts and bolts... that would earn it a 5 star rating from me.
Other Thoughts: A simple black and white set up guide printed on one sheet of paper would have reduced the set up time by 1 or 2 minutes. Would be nice...

Categories > Server Racks / Cabinets > Norco Technologies Inc. > Norco R4-15U 15U 4 Post Open Frame Steel Rack

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4 Solid Simple Rack
Pros: Solid construction.
Quick to assemble despite lack of any instructions.
Fit my components (non railed components) just fine.
Wheels are good quality (as are the leveling pads though i didn't opt to use them)

Looks nice overall... not as nice as a rack cabinet, but still pretty cool and impressive looking for a home setup.
Cons: No manual. It's not particularly hard to figure out how to put together... but a simple 1 sheet diagram really couldn't hurt. Check out James C's review below for the link to some excellent pics that assist if you are unfamiliar with rack hardware.

No extras of critical screws. While there were exactly enough screws to put everything together, there were no extras of these components... not a huge con, but including at least 1 extra of each critical piece couldn't possibly cost too much extra.

Scuffed/scratched in places. The scuffs were eventually removable with magic eraser, but the underlying scratches and a few other small ones on the corners of pieces are an annoying cosmetic defect.

As others have mentioned the screw holes for attaching the posts to the wheel bracers are hard to get started due to them being slightly painted over. Not a huge issue, only had any difficulty on one of the holes that really seemed to require more force than it ought to, in order to get it started. As some others have mentioned, once you get them going though, it is fine.

Extremely minor issue is that the spots where the wheels are attached stick out more than they ought to IMO. I can see where putting them in a little more toward center would obstruct attaching the posts properly, but there has to have been a way to accomplish both without the wheels jutting out in front/behind the rest of the thing quite so far.
Other Thoughts: Despite the much larger con section, they are all extremely minor, and I still would highly recommend purchasing this if you need a somewhat budget rack for a small business/home.

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5
Pros: Quiet, high quality rack. Worked perfect for my application - computer gear sharing an office with a dentist.
Cons: Heavy. Expensive, but worth every dime if you need quiet, cool environment for server gear.

Categories > Server Racks / Cabinets > Norco Technologies Inc. > Norco W-609 9U 450mm Depth Wallmount 19" Cabinet

Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2 Could be better
Pros: Affordable, sturdy construction, vented front door
Cons: Abysmal instruction "manual" that is nothing more than a sheet of paper. Reversing the direction of the front door is a frustrating event due to the fact that a spring must be compressed against a channel that is welded to the door. Need to have the strength of an adult with hands the size of a child, or have someone help compress the spring for you.

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4
Pros: Solid Construction.
Cons: For the cost of this unit, it should have come with more accessories for attaching equipment into the rack. If you plan on filling this unit, expect to purchase more hardware.

Categories > Server Racks / Cabinets > iStarUSA Inc. > iStarUSA WA-SF96B-1U 1U Heavy Duty Rackmount Shelf

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4 Incompatible with Supermicro Server
Pros: Sturdy, easy to assemble, available in many sizes, reasonably priced, no useless side panels or doors to get in the way.
Cons: (1) A bend in the uprights presses against the rails supplied with Supermicro servers such that you can't push the server back into the rack without distorting the chassis. HP rails worked fine, but of course you don't get to choose the rails.

(2) A small tool was included to tighten the bolts, however it was too short to be effective.

(3) The wheel locks tended to catch in the carpet when rolling the assembly, even though the carpet was extremely thin.
Other Thoughts: I don't don't which bit of hardware is out of spec, Supermicro or iStar (Claytech), or perhaps it is the standard that is defective. In any case, I had to buy alternative rails that just provided a shelf for the server to sit on. This is fine but doesn't hold the server up for maintenance.

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4 Nice cabinet
Pros: Very sturdy
Cons: Difficult to assemble with the limited instructions. Parts are not labeled, which makes many of the instructions meaningless.
Other Thoughts: This cabinet has been great so far. I have it loaded up with 2 servers, a gigabit switch, and a PDU.

Categories > Server Racks / Cabinets > STARTECH > StarTech CABSHELF1U 1U 19" Universal Fixed Server Rack Cabinet Shelf

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Perfect fit for a small router
Pros: Perfect for the small desktop router or switch that needs a home in a rack.
Cons: Too small to hold an elephant in a rack!
Other Thoughts: I was looking for a shelf for a Fortinet 60D Firewall. This could not be more perfect. It’s one inch deeper than the Fortinet. Just 1U height, and the Fortinet sits just barely below the top. Two Fortinets can sit side by side on it with ¼” to spare, so an HA pair should be quite happy on this.
