These racks are my favorite, and I’ve been using one for the past 3 years! I personally use the 25U, I find it can fit everything I want and it’s not… overbearing.
Here’s a very early picture of my racked Server/DAS. I have a third Rosewill and a shelf to add when I have a minute. This is the 25u StarTech. It’s super stout and very high quality.
Originally, I was looking for a used rack, even searching as far as 200 miles. There were a few nice enclosed racks but the pricing was way too expensive. I’m just not paying $450-$600 for a used 25u rack.
I just bought a 12U, in part because of your comment about ‘super stout’.
I’m curious, what depth are your racks set at when using the RSV-L4500? I’m just setting mine up and I’m not sure what depth to set it to.
I believe mine is set to 36", but I can check later today.
Are there any tip on mounting a top to the rack? I was looking at getting a piece of OBS from the hardware store and cutting it to size but I’m also curious what others have done as well.
