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

5 out of 5 eggsRails that are, well, rails.

Pros: Heavy duty. Nice and greasy.

Cons: Feels stiff the first 4 inches sliding out, but how often do you really need to extend it?

Other Thoughts: I'm new to racking things and I happened to check the reviews of this the day It arrived. Like others, I ordered this because it was listed as compatable with my NORCO RPC-4220. Several recent reviews said they had to drill new holes to make it fit. I had zero issues with it. I tried to recreate the holes not lining up, but that can only be done if the rail is put on backwards. Rotating 180 degrees fixes that. If there were any issues with the rails before, they've been resolved

1 out of 5 eggsDoes not fit my RPC-4220

Pros: Seems to be decent construction, when not mounted the rail slides in and out smoothly.

Cons: Does not fit. Despite being listed on Norco's site as the correct rail kit for the RPC-4220, the inner rail holes do not align with the holes on the case and therefore the rail can't be used.

1 out of 5 eggsWow...what a waste of time...

Pros: None that I can think of....

Cons: How does something like this even make it out of the design process? I have a compatible Norco chassis, and double checked compatibility before ordering twice to make sure. It arrived and NONE of the holes even come close to lining up. Another buyer on NewEgg had the same issue, and Norco's solution is to "drill holes". Gee, thanks!

Other Thoughts: Since I had no time to waste I marked and drilled holes to get this thing in the rack. Beware, you must be DEAD ON with your new holes if you plan to put this in a full rack between two other servers, otherwise it won't fit at all or at best rub on the servers above and\or below it.

Also, thanks for coating the entire thing in grease! It really makes for a pleasant installation experience.

5 out of 5 eggsVery happy with these rails

Pros: Build quality is great.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Not much to say for a set of rails, but I'm quite happy with them. I was expecting something of much cheaper quality (sleeve bearing, if at all). This is a great set of solid, ball bearing rails.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat chassis for cheap JBOD

Pros: Solid construction, good air flow, fans, 8087 cables included for reasonable price. Norco has always been good to deal with.

Cons: The OEM model only supports 2u or redundant power supplies and the old back plate that allowed a ATX supply to be used no longer seems to be available.

Other Thoughts: I used the 3216 to build a JBOD chassis with the Highpoint EJ240 and a Supermicro power card. Economical for a bare bones approach.

Newegg shipping on this was ridiculously cheap, like $9.99 ... wild.

1 out of 5 eggsBuy something else

Pros: The ball bearing model is heavy duty but for the money there are better rails out there.

Cons: There aren't any slots in the part of the rail that mounts to the server case; you may have to drill holes to make it work... not me sending back.

1 out of 5 eggsRL-26 review

Pros: None that I can think of.

Cons: I previously ordered a set of these in January of 2011 and got the ball bearing model. I ordered the same part number in December of 2011 and received the non-ball bearing model. There is a huge difference in quality, how far they will extend and such.

Other Thoughts: I'd suggest Newegg stop carrying these non-ball bearing models and go back to the ones they sold in January. The ball bearing units are great and you can get them directly from Norco/IPC for only $1 more than this slide style. I had Newegg issue an RMA and returned these slides.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Both RL-26 and RL-20 rails are ball bearing version now. Thank you.

Best Regards,
Norco Support Team
