We were looking for a way to protect our server from any accidents or theft. This cabinet did both. Previously our server was bolted to a table, but it wasn’t protected from people bumping into the table or accidentally spilling something on the table or on the server. This cabinet is well made and provides easy access through the 4 removable, locking side panels. The cable inlets have dust protection and are located to ensure you don’t have to leave anything outside the cabinet. Once you get the cabinet where you want it, you can set the feet to prevent it from being moved easily. This cabinet is a great value for the money and best of all, it really looks good in our office.
Well packaged, just a couple of slightly bent pieces, small dead blow hammer straightened them right out.
Well constructed, only issue during assembly was the online and provided booklet. Since all the colors, screws, rubber, frame and components are black, you hard to see certain details. The blowup drawing online helped some.
Haven’t populated it nor powered up the fans... with any luck they’ll never have to come on...
Would recommend this product.
I bought this rack for a new startup I’m launching later this year. 42U is bigger and badder than anything I have ever expected but I figured hey why not leaves a little room for growth. The rack is 7ft tall and weighs in at around 250lbs it has a max load of 1600lbs. The front is made of really nice tempered glass and the rear has a full size metal door to access the back of your rack. The 4 fans on top are serious as hell and can move a lot of air I thought they were going to be small and cheap they are not. This is a real deal datacenter cabinet with no compromises. I’m going to be using it to build a cloud storage business with it and I got to say I cant be happier. The instruction booklet is really nice and comes with 6 sets of keys and all the hardware you could ever need. Everything has security locks and many nice dust free passthroughs. The PDU is high quality and has a nice industrial feel to it. The shelf is sold as a rock and fits perfectly and is vented. I am very happy with my purchase. If you are building a business or looking to expand go with the 42U setup you wont regret it.
You would think for the price you would not need to make multiple trips to the hardware store to purchase missing screws, washers and nuts, but alas if you buy it be prepared to do just that. We also found the latch arm for one of the locks was missing which we then needed to fabricate.
This is a great tower, high quality and looks awesome. We purchased two of them. The only down side is the instructions make no sense at all. Parts are not labeled, screw bags are not labeled. If it was not for YouTube videos we would have never put it together. A simple update to instructions would have saved us hours.
The case is pretty simple to assemble. It looks really good. I considered taking off a star because of the fan control. It beeps loudly when a button is pressed and it is kind of weird to adjust at first. As carefully as it was packed, three parts still arrived bent. The lower part of the front door, one of the frames and the included shelf all arrived with a slight bend. My rail configuration left no room to use the included shelf, so I can’t consider that in part of the review. Again, most people would have probably taken off a star for this, but since it’s not reflective of the product itself, I didn’t. Overall, I can’t wait to fill this rack up. Beautiful rack, but be prepared to spend some time breaking down the boxes. I think I set the rack up faster than all the time it took to break down the boxes.
There are some missing parts as shown in the pictures. Could you please send them to me?
Overall it’s a great rack and goes together well. Several of the panels including the front glass door was bent. I’m afraid to bend it back or the glass could shatter.
this rack fits the bill just fine, all the parts were not scratched and the glass front door is a nice addition as this rack is not in our server room. I put this together to house the media wall components and have a nice look, but still lock everything.the included upper fans are not quiet, but work well with its temp probe, will keep them off unless needed, and swap out for quiet options. took me an hour to build solo, taking my time as to not scratch anything.
all in all very happy with purchase, glass to keep people from spilling anything through the mesh, sturdy design, and easy to assemble.
The Network IT Cabinet is awesome and one of a kind design. Good airflow and very strong customer support.
I have one part for replacement they shipped it right away when they received my email.
I highly recommend Sysracks products.
I wish it came with two shelf but that is not a big ting. Fans are a bit loud but they work great. Other then that all and all this is a great rack and very well protected on its way here so no scratches
Excellent rack pour le prix
Great cabinet, also bought a shelf and it fits perfectly.
