Very Impressed


from Lafayette, LA

Comments about Tripp Lite SmartRack 8U 12U or 22U Expandable Wall-Mount Open Frame Rack:

This frame rack is exactly what I was looking for. I didn't need it enclosed, and I didn't want to pay a fortune for something that would be sturdy. This rack definitely exceeded my expectations.

Setup and mounting was not an issue. The instructions are detailed, easy to read, and included clear picture diagrams.

The structure is very thick metal. I have no qualms about it holding up.

My only complaint was that some of the front mounting screws (to screw in your devices) did not fit perfectly in the holes. Screwing them in was impossible without an impact driver. However, once I used the impact driver, I am confident that they will hold.

I am currently using only 3 switches mounted in the 12U configuration, but the capacity is much greater. I highly recommend this rack.

This is part of our standard cleanup whenever a client moves or upgrades their IT infrastructure. We place rackmout servers, switches, UPS and Tripplite Fixed Shelf SRSHELF2P for any other items that are not mountable

It is what it is...

Comments about Tripp Lite SmartRack 8U 12U or 22U Expandable Wall-Mount Open Frame Rack:

For the price it's about what I expected. I didn't find any major flaws that would keep me from buying it again. The machining isn't perfect, the threaded holes are rough and take a bit of force at points, I stripped an assembly screw out putting it together. The threading on the rails is pretty rough and takes some force as well but nothing so hard it stripped.

The gauge of steel is sturdy enough to satisfy me.

It's nice that it comes with a couple dozen screws for equipment.
