I have this set up as a ‘permanent’ installation for a power backup and distribution system. It is just large enough to hold everything involved, and it is convenient to move that stuff to a rack mount model instead of just stacking them.
I would have liked it to waste a little less space on top/bottom (a bit more than an inch from the outside top to the top of the upper 1U, and a bit more than an inch from the outside bottom (less wheels) to the bottom of the lower 1U). Where I have it, using the top 1U is not possible. If it wasted a half inch less to the top and bottom, it would have fit well enough to give me that extra space for expansion. I think they could have done this but it might have meant slightly more complicated shape or thicker plate for the top and bottom pieces. I would like to take of half a star for this, but Amazon only allows full stars.
Side to side the dimensions seem good; front to rear as expected from the dimensions.
It is fairly heavy when assembled, but not really heavier than expected. Fully loaded, the handles seem more of a convenient way to pull it around (assuming you use the wheels) than a safe way to pick it up (the power system I have loaded in it pushes pretty close to the manufacturer’s stated weight limit for the rack). I can’t imagine picking up my setup without at least four people; two handles isn’t going to do it. Since my setup is not meant to be moved, though, it’s not a big deal. With the handles recessed, at least they don’t stick out and get in the way of other things.
Overall I’d consider this about 9 of 10.
This is the first (small) rack I was without any wall mount options. Also our previous racks have a “double” kind of wall, where the vertical mounting rail is inside the actual enclose, leaving rooms on the sides for cable routing. Here, the only option is using the open back side for all the cables, which is a limiting factor. I’m dropping a star from my review because of these two reasons.
Otherwise it is a well built sturdy standard 19in rack, with 9U capability, and 23 in depth, which should be enough for most small studio equipment. And Amazon carries several long drawer options to keep mics, cables, and batteries inside. Our longest equipment is the power amplifier, and this rack is long enough to carry it. It also offers enough weight capacity, even when supported with coasters. So there is still usable benefits from this rack enclosure.
The built in handles and excellent swiveling casters make this an extremely useful rack that stores nicely in a utilitarian server room in the office.
It was very easy to assemble and an attractive finished product resulted.
As it holds up to 1200 pounds, that’s more than most will ever need.
We are very pleased with this rack and if the need arises, will definitely buy another.
