StarTech 12U Computer Rack

On the laminate floors, the rack rolls very easily, which is good as with the top racked 4U system will be one of the systems used frequently for swapping out graphics cards for benchmarking... Rather than buying sliding rails, I can just wheel out the 12U rack and easily still remove the top panel of the Rosewill chassis and proceed to swap components as needed.

Overall this StarTech rack is quite nice and I'm happy with it; it's just like the 25U and 48U models that I remain quite happy with. The only downside I have about this 12U rack is the price at just over $200 USD. StarTech still makes some of the cheapest yet durable racks, which is how I found them in the first place, but $200 for a 12U rack is a fair amount... In comparison, the 25U rack is $250 USD.

If you are interested in any of the StarTech racks, they can be found at Amazon and NewEgg, both of which stores is where I have purchased them.
