I now have two of these in my house. The first one is setup in my office area and has my consumer grade switch along with my patch panel. It worked well when I started to install my Cisco lab but as that equipment is too loud, I bought a second rack so that I could mount that gear in a different spot. These racks hold my switches and patch panels with no issue. I liked the price and they are strong.
I needed a more compact unit for a small home network I built. This rack worked well for what I needed. Holds what I need for home. Came with screws to mount on the rack. I had to use my own lag bolts for the mount to the wall. I don't see this much use for a large scale commercial use where more equipment is used. Would recommend.
This bracket was easy to hang. Mounted 3 1 U switches - all lined up perfectly. Used standard bolts. The bracket holds 4 1 U components in total. After the switches were mounted, I ended up with 1 inch on each side and 4 inches in the back for fan air flow. Took off 1 star because this is a light duty bracket - it will flex back and fourth if bumped.
This rack is a bit flimsy but works for my purposes. The mounted hardware makes it more rigid. Currently mounting a top shelf, patch panel, 24 port switch, and rack mounted surge protector. Did NOT come with 10/32 screws though and I had to buy a bunch from another vendor. Description needs to be fixed as I had to wait for those screws.

Worked well and accommodated the patch panel and switch with ease.
