Pros:
Although not as sleek as a Dell cabinet, these are great looking. Well made. Have good build materials. And a Lifetime warranty. The actual Rack Posts (4) are designed for use with the "universal" Cage Nuts and Screws (a bag of about 10-20 are included), which is very nice.

Setup is pretty simple for the technically inclined (takes about 2-3 hrs, if it's your first one). Most of it can be assembled without even looking at the instructions. You mainly need the instructions to determine which screws go where (which isn't extremely clear...there is no labeling on the screw bags themselves, or pictures of the screws the instructions reference to use)...but it really isn't that hard to figure out; you have the Cage Nuts & Screws, the included Allen and Torx-bit Driver, the Torx-head Screws (which are used for almost all of the build), Eight Alan Bolts with Washers (used for Attaching the Cross Braces to the Side Panels), and another bag of small screws which (for me) seemed to be duplicates of ones that were already partially installed for the Plastic Corner Caps.

If you are not going to use a cordless torque-driver to assemble the case, and are going to assemble it by hand, I would recommend wearing padded leather gloves while screwing in the Torx-head Screws. The Torx-head Screws are somewhat "self tapping" (the holes they go in are not threaded, and are a bit smaller than the screws), thus it takes quite a bit of torque to get them in, and flush. The included Torx-bit Driver will tear up your hands while doing this if you do not wear gloves.

You will also need to wear gloves, and use an adjustable wrench, when adjusting the Nuts on the Adjustable Feet prior to installation.

The unit itself is well built, easy to assemble and good looking. There's really not much more to a server rack. The side panels don't feel very secure, but maybe that's because the entire unit is slightly warped due to shipping. Speaking of shipping, it was terrible to say the least. The box had at least 100 pieces of tape along the sides and not a one spanned the entire length of the box. The box was littered with holes and the integrity of the single wall cardboard was that of crumpled-up packing paper. Inside the metal frame of the unit was severely warped. I had to take the support bars to a metal fabrication shop to straighten out. The side panels are dented and paint is scuffed off on almost all sides. Inside the box it looked as if a tornado had passed through, a mixed up a bunch of metal and Styrofoam. Amazingly, the glass survived with no padding or protection.

If you're looking for a good enclosed server rack at a decent price and don't mind some damaged parts, then this item is for you!

The rack is great quality. The panels are solid, as are the doors and hardware. In fact I have relatively few complaints about the case and would have loved to like it. If you're mounting standard depth servers you won't have much room for cabling down the side of the rack since the rails have to be nearly all the way to the back. Same goes for installing PDUs.

What burned me was the shape of the box. Like one other poster mentioned the rack came boxed HORRIDLY. The box had holes in it and was mashed up. All the panels survived however. Amazon's return policy does not let you refuse shipments, so I decided to lug the 140 pound box home with the help of a friend to put it all together.

Turns out the little plastic bag that was supposed to hold keys and a door bearing for the rear door had a hole in it. The keys were there but no door bearing. Everything was great except *one* door bearing.

This is where things go sour quickly. I think to myself that things happen right? I got a hold of Startech support and told them the situation to see if they could sell me a door bearing to replace it with. They said they do not have any spare parts. What kind of company doesn't keep spare parts for racks?! They told me to look at what Amazon could do. Looks like the only option is to return the item. So I either have the luxury of living without a back door (unacceptable), or disassembling the entire rack, BUYING new packaging (UPS won't accept the original tattered mess), and having this thing shipped back, only to have to haul another one home hoping it too doesn't have some defect?! Over a tiny little door bearing?! Unacceptable service. StarTech has the product but doesn't have the support, and Amazon's support system also obviously isn't built for the rack business.

+4 stars for the quality of the product and the ease of putting it together, the price, and the free shipping with prime. The rack is high quality and all the parts fit together very well. It comes with all the hardware you need and includes rack screws and nuts.

-1 star for the box being packed loose and looking as though it was mauled by a bear.

Received this item quickly from Amazon.

The good: It's well built (tight fitting panels), and deep enough to fit full-length servers with room to spare. I can't say enough about how sturdy this thing is once put together. It has lots of room and slots for cable management, and does its primary job (holding servers/network equip) extremely well. The vertical mounting rails come pre-aligned and I didn't have to fuss with them at all when installing servers.

The bad:

Assembly: Don't bother using the tools they provide to assemble it, as you won't have any hands left when complete. The tools are undersized and don't provide the leverage needed to install the provided screws, as many of the threads on both the screws and chassis are painted over. This means you either need to run a tap through each hole to clean out the paint/metal shavings, or strong arm every bolt/screw. Additionally, one of the threaded holes for the feet was not completely tapped through, so I had to run a tap through it in order to install one foot properly.

Shipping: This thing needs to be shipped on a pallet. It weighs a ton, and is not secured properly in the box it is shipped in. This means that it bangs around in there the entire time from the factory to the customer doorstep. The top cover on mine was completely marred and bent, but I was able to bend it back straight and level since I have the proper tools. Of course I didn't install or look at the top cover until last, and would have returned the product if I had known it was so mangled.

Hardware: There were screws missing as there were holes in the box from shipping that had allowed them to escape.
