Blank Panel, 3.5(H)X19(W) ,2U
Blank panels can be used to reserve rack space for future expansion and provide a neat and clean appearance by hiding cabling. This blank panel fits a standard 19" wide rack and covers 2U of rack space (3.5" height). The panel is constructed of black painted steel.
PROS: Thick metal, nice glossy finish
PROS: Nice panel, well made.
CONS: It just should, well, come with SCREWS.
It's on display right next to the Hope Diamond.
PROS: Great price...no more logo on the front.
CONS: Comes with 12/24 size rack mount screws which are too big for my rack.
PROS: Fits a standard rack or bracket
PROS: Seems to be made out of high quality material. All of the screw holes line up. No logo like a reviewer mentioned on a different size blank.
CONS: The panel is just a touch taller than it should be. As a result, installing two of the blanks next to each other causes them to just barely overlap.
I would have also preferred not to have the screenprinted Monoprice logo on the front since these are supposed to be *blank* panels, but some spray paint covers that up easily enough.
Overall, I was glad to see Monoprice offering blank rack panels cheap, but these really need to be revised to be useful.
PROS: Low price, quick shipping, very sturdy construction.
CONS: Panel is slightly taller than standard rack units, Monoprice logo is printed on the front.
PROS: Well make, strong, looks good
CONS: The panel is a little too big. If I Have the 2U panels installed one after another. It would fit up to 4 panels in a roll. Won't be able to install the fifth one because the holes does not line up. One panel takes a little more surface space than they should and they add up to too much when it come to the 5th one.
The biggest problem is the fact that they don't fit properly in a standard rack. You can only install 1 and then the rest do not line up correctly with the holes thus rendering them completely useless. I will NEVER EVER buy these again from Monoprice.
PROS: The only pro is that they are cheaper than other suppliers
CONS: The first con is that the Monoprice logo stamped on the front.
The second and most major is the fact that they don't fit properly in a standard rack.
