Rating: 5/5Sonnet products are good but horrendously overpriced
Pros: I got this to rack mount a pair of minis, one 2011 model server and a 2010 model with optical drive. Both run Server 10.8 and operate via Remote Desktop. It serves the purpose just great.
Cons: There is USB access on the front panel but none for firewire.
Other Thoughts: This is basically a metal box with some foam to cushion the minis and hold them in place, along with USB extension cables going to front mounted ports and buttons with linkage to actuate the power buttons on the minis. Why Sonnet thinks it should cost what it does is a mystery. But then the same thing can be said about all of their products.
As it happens, I got a used example from a popular online auction site for about one quarter the retail price. That was a lot more like it.
So to sum it up, this is a five egg worthy product if you don't have to pay what Sonnet wants for it. If you have to pay that price, not so much.
