Reviews around price (5.00 of 5)

  • If it were not for the quality of the rack at a VERY fair price I would have knocked off two stars just because of the instructions
  • The price is very reasonable and it's well-made with no sharp edges.
  • Great price, very durable, and all around great rack despite the instructions.
  • Great rack for a great price, just wish the wire management clips could attach someplace that wasn't out the outside edges
  • Startech has a good rack, for a reasonable price, but that doesn't matter to me one bit if they can't package their product correctly..

Reviews around value (4.56 of 5)

  • Once you figure that out though the product is a great value
  • Took some adjusting to get it square, but a great value for the price.
  • Other than that, what you see is what you get - and that's actually a pretty good value
  • This rack represents an excellent value for the intended application.
  • Overall, if it will mechanically fit in in your application, this is a great rack at an excellent value.

Reviews around depth (4.42 of 5)

  • The depth is adjustable to suit many type of rack mount kit
  • Also the shortest depth doesn't look too bad for small office/home use
  • so I doubled my 12U StarTech and picked up the 25U Adjustable Depth rack.
  • I love the adjustable depth, because I have 32-inch deep
  • Extremely pleased with this purchase, it is the 42u Adjustable Depth Rack.

Reviews around finish (4.37 of 5)

  • It has a nice finish that's well protected during shipping with all parts packaged in individual bubble-wrap sleeves.
  • The fit & finish are actually pretty nice, and it seems quite strong
  • Sturdy, nice powder coated finish, easy to assemble, low profile, mobile
  • posts bending because someone tripped and fell into a loaded rack, metal fatigue/bending at the holes and mounting squares, the black finish easily flaking off, etc... this is the rack you'll want to spend just a bit more on to vastly minimize the chance of experiencing any of those problems
  • It's well-built, has a nice finish, and has a robust design

Reviews around server (4.16 of 5)

  • But since there are no sides on this rack, you cannot lock your servers inside or secure them from people accessing the ports or power buttons
  • I chose the adjustable depth rack to ensure my servers would fit and not hang out the back
  • Honestly the grounding wire kit isn't really needed, but its nice to have if you need to ground your servers or equipment
  • This is an amazing little rack; perfect for people who don't want a wall-mounted solution & want to possibly upgrade to something that supports full-depth servers
  • The depth is adjustable, so it can be made to fit in your lab easily, and can take shallow switches or extra-deep servers

Reviews around caster (4.01 of 5)

  • The casters don't like to
  • Very sturdy, casters are solid and the adjustable depth rails are a great feature
  • The included hardware is comprehensive (wheels as well as casters, cage nuts and bolts, cable guides)
  • On top of that the casters are very stiff and don't move freely like my TrippLite 25U adjustable rack's casters do
  • Also, installing the casters is very difficult because one of the four screws in pretty inaccessible and if you aren't careful you might drop the screw into the hollow frame of the rack

Reviews around design (3.95 of 5)

  • Decent design and well constructed; bolts really holds the unit rigid.2
  • It's well-built, has a nice finish, and has a robust design
  • open concept helps with ventilation and keeping the system cool, well designed peice of equipment.
  • Due to poor packaging design, at some point during transit the bottom of the box had fallen off
  • but it was disappointing to see such a horrible box design for an otherwise fantastic product

Reviews around box (1.85 of 5)

  • Received first unit, UPS damaged the box so bad that 95% of all parts were lost
  • Got home and tore the box open like a kid on Christmas so excited to assemble it and put my server and router in it
  • I know 7 year olds that would design sturdier boxes
  • Even though the outside box had been mangled the internals were all pristine
  • If this were the first time I could understand but this is the second box shipped exactly like this

Reviews around piece (1.61 of 5)

  • Arrived missing one of the top pieces.
  • I immediately contacted the Startech support and they got the assembly kit and other missing pieces on the way to me that night
  • My rack arrived missing more than half the pieces, including several of the large and heavy pieces
  • You only get to use two (rather than four) bolts to secure each piece of the extensible rails.- One of each caster's four bolts clashes with the nuts on the inside of the extensible rails
  • I saw some complaints about missing pieces and poor packaging

Reviews around hardware (1.33 of 5)

  • Very nice hardware supplied with it
  • I ordered this rack and it came with a missing crossmember bar and all the hardware was missing (no screws, casters, etc.)I just received the replacement and the packaging is missing all the hardware again
  • Thumbs up to StarTech for not using cheap hardware that will shear and strip during assembly.
  • It's hefty, but you want that when you're mounting expensive hardware.
  • Package arrived missing assembly hardware and the package was open on one end when it arrived

Reviews around ship issue (1.00 of 5)

  • Now onto the packaging (or shipping issues) others have had issues with
  • EDIT - Seeing as most of the negative reviews are about shipping issues, rather than the rack
  • And I didn't have the same shipping issues as
  • So don't worry if you run into shipping issues
  • Despite shipping issues this rack and StarTech support both absolutely deliver quality and I'd order another one in a heartbeat even knowing i'll probably have shipping issues again
