5 out of 5 eggsEasy to setup, pretty straight forward

Pros: easy to install on a standard width rack (im using a 4 post rack from startech on casters.
If you plan on mounting this on a rack that has 2 sets of square holes per column you will need to set the rail up on the inside square holes.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Reading the bad eggs comments bellow I feel sad that most people fail to know how to install rails on a rack. or even how they work.
Theres even a youtube video on how to set them up.
If you're skeptical after the install, just measure the distance between the rails at the front and the distance between rails at the back, they should match,

1 out of 5 eggsAny port in a storm...

Pros: After reading reviews on my Norco case, I purchased these rails to deal with slightly wider case size. The rails mount behind the forward posts thus taking the thickness of the rail material out of the equation of total assembly width. This is the end of the pros because...

Cons: compared to the roughly 10 dollars cheaper chenbro rails i purchased for the other components on my rack, the norco rails are total garbage. the rail latches are flimsy plastic, the rails don't extend far enough to take the lid of the case off. I am tempted to just buy another set of chenbros. It seems like Norco could have headed the entire issue off by making the case standard width.

Other Thoughts: I cannot recommend this product - further, I warn all to steer clear. Total garbage.

1 out of 5 eggsDoes not fit...anything

Pros: -Seems to be quality construction on the rails themselves

Cons: -The rails do not fit NORCO chassis products
-You have to drill holds or bend flanges on your chassis to make them 'fit'
-Worst of all when the rails are installed they combined width of the rails and chassis are way to wide for any standard rack cabinet

Other Thoughts: This product is too cheap for me to return it, but expensive enough for me to write a review

5 out of 5 eggsFits RPC-4224 perfectly

Pros: Perfect fit for my RPC-4224 and StarTech 4 post rack

Cons: Its a little greasy, might need to be careful when you installing it so you don't get it everywhere

Other Thoughts: Fits my 1 year old RPC-4224 perfectly, other reviews are saying it doesn't, but I'm having no issues.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't work with Norco RPC-4224

Pros: None

Cons: Don't work with Norco RPC-4224
Newegg returns are horrible

Other Thoughts: Ordered a Norco RPC-4224 and these rails. The combination of those two items is much too wide for a normal server rack. Tried to return them and Newegg returns are horrible. Restocking fee, have to pay exorbitant shipping to return them, etc. Bad experience all around.

4 out of 5 eggsBlood, Sweat, and some Tears

Pros: Cheapest railset out there, especially with great value on norco cases.
Functionally acceptable once installed.

Cons: Finish quality (sharp edges, initial install , see below)

Other Thoughts: I have a number of Norco 1U cases and rails installed in a rack in a commercial data center. Overall I am happy w/ Norco's products- they offer the best bang for the buck for smaller companies with limited IT budgets.

These rails were a real challenge. First off, they had numerous "burrs" on the metal that hadn't been sanded out... resulting in two very deep cuts on my hands from handling them. Hence the BLOOD! Once I stopped the bleeding and put on heavy gloves I was ok.

I also had troubles getting the rails to extend all the way to their design length. No manual or help on the web site, and norco support (which is usually ok) didn't respond to my email. Finally i tried banging on the rails w/ a hammer to get them to extend, and suddenly I had full length rails... so a little SWEAT was required.

No real TEARS to speak of... even though there are design issues with Norco 1U cases (the tops won't go on when you have rails on them), they are generally good and incredibly cheap relative to the competition.

3 out of 5 eggsWorks, but...

Pros: These rails fit my RPC-470, and fit my four post cabinet with threaded 10/32 holes. I received a set in November 2014 with ball bearings. Some folks have wrote in reviews that Norco cases on these rails are too wide to fit their racks; I did not experience this problem. The quality of the slide of the bearings matches my experience with major OEM rack servers.

Cons: These rails, when mounted on my RPC-470, do not extend far enough to remove the cover from the case unless I release the retaining latches and pull it out another 4 inches or so. It does not feel like I am extending it to the point that it might fall off, but it is an extra step. Users of the RPC-430 and RPC-450 likely do not have this problem.

Other Thoughts: I am keeping these rails, as I don't think I will do better and don't want to pay return shipping, but the fact that I have to over extend the rails to remove the cover on my Norco chassis is disappointing.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I have these on both my Norco RPC-231 cases and my Norco RPC-3216 cases they fit fine and slide in and out smooth.

Cons: Does not slide out far enough to open my Norco RPC-3216 cases so I either have to leave the top of those cases open or release the rails slide latch and slide the server out further than the rails normally go. Not a big deal to me though
