Style Name: Enclosure with CoverSize: 28-Inch
As a professional installer, if you have enough wiring to justify getting one of these boxes (or if you just want to have neater cables and equipment), do yourself a favor and get a 19" wall-mount equipment rack instead. I install structured wiring in homes, and in most cases, if you have room for an in-wall enclosure, you have room for a small rack. Racks come in lots of sizes in both height and depth (search amazon for "wall mount rack") to fit anyone's needs.

In my experience, racks *always* make for neater and easier to maintain wiring. Structured media enclosures, no matter the manufacturer or size, just don't give you enough room. Installers can do a good job of making these boxes *look* neat, but that only lasts until your first upgrade. In my experience, these boxes *always* end up a mess.

It also doesn't help that the modules made for these boxes--such as cable splitters, Ethernet switches, and telephone distribution blocks--are usually overpriced, have a limited number of ports, and are incompatible (mounting-wise) between manufacturers. A Leviton module can't be easily mounted in an On-Q box (or vice versa).

19" racks are a standard size, and it's easy to find equipment and hardware that can be mounted in them. Manufacturer doesn't matter.

The manufacturer commented on this review(What's this?)
Good Day,

Thank you for your feedback. Use of a 19" wall mount solution is an option for structured wiring solutions, and it has associated pros/cons compared to using a flush mount enclosure. What is really going to drive your installation decision is the type of equipment you are using for each application and the location designated for the install. Active gear mounted on 19" racks are very different systems and applications serving a different consumer or even commercial market. Many customers put the enclosure in a central location in the home where an aesthetically pleasing flush mount enclosure is required to conceal the structured wiring components. Leviton also offers a universal mounting plate (47612-CBK) that is design to be installed into other enclosures and mount our modules. In addition, Leviton offers a range in enclosure sizes (14", 21", 28" and 42") to help with the organization and wire management.

Style Name: Enclosure with CoverSize: 28-Inch Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
In my home I have every room (and sometimes multiple connections per room) wired for ethernet as that allows for a faster home network than available with wi-fi. This is great for speed, however becomes very messy in the basement where all the wires come together. The same goes for telephone and cable wires. This is where a structured media enclosure such as this one: Leviton 47605-28W SMC Structured Media Enclosure with Cover, 28-Inch, White and the patch panel: Leviton 476TM-512 Twist and Mount Patch Panel, 12 CAT 5e Ports come in handy. The enclosure let's you run all of the wires into it through holes (there are multiple holes at the top that can be knocked out) then you wire each of the ethernet cables into the patch panel. This let's you make it easy to identify which connections go to a given room and then short ethernet cables would go from the patch panel to your router.

Additional modules are available from Leviton for providing power to the enclosure as well so that the routers could be mounted inside (though if you had a wi-fi router, you probably wouldn't want to enclose it in a metal box). In addition you'd probably want to purchase a roll of ethernet cable and a tool kit like this:

Style Name: Enclosure OnlySize: 28-Inch Verified Purchase
I purchased this product in order to organize my DirecTV equipment and make it look nicer since the installer basically left it all hanging from the rafters in my basement. I did not use any official Leviton "components" (or stand-offs) with this enclosure other than the Leviton outlet but rather screwed my DirecTV components directly to the inside using sheet metal screws. To make room behind it for the screws as well as bring the depth even with my circuit breaker panel, I first mounted 2x4s to the wall then mounted this enclosure to the 2x4s as this is how my circuit breaker panel was mounted. The idea being that if I ever finish the basement it will all be flush and even, although I could also just remount it between studs as it is optionally designed to do.

I wasn't sure if this particular enclosure (28") would be too big for my needs, but after some measuring and planning I figured it should work pretty well, and after actually mounting everything into it, it did work out perfectly in my opinion. It wasn't too big, but big enough that everything isn't all crammed into it, which will make it easier to swap components if I ever need to.

If anyone is considering using something like this to mount their DirecTV equipment into, then I'd recommend it. The equipment I mounted into it was:

SWiM 16 module and power adapter (PI)
2 8-way splitters
DECA BB adapter (CCK) and power adapter

While I didn't purchase it yet, I plan to eventually install the hinged cover on this unit. Initially, due to the position of the outlet placement at the bottom of this enclosure and the design of the DECA BB power adapter, there would be no way to install a cover because the power adapter stuck out the front a little.
