Honest review. I just installed this rack last night into an IDF that's pretty tight on space.
• Build quality is good. Not amazing, but good enough.
• Screws were correct (that's been an issue on some other racks).
• Powder-coating was consistent.
• Included extra screws, and sufficient number of cage nuts.
• No point in the swing feature.
• The double sided racking surface is cumbersome.
• Assembly instructions are just ok.
The double sided mounting is similar to that of a 2 post relay rack. I'm not sure what purpose it serves in a wall mount rack like this. perhaps it gives some rigidity to the unit as a whole, I'm not sure, but I would never mount anything on the back side of the frame.
I have some concerns about how sturdy the locking pins are that hold the swing frame in place. They are a spring-loaded mechanism and the the pin is about 3/16". There are 4 pins that hold the 4 corners of the racking frame into the wall mounted portion. I don't think I'd put more than 20-30lbs in it if you can help it. I prefer the swing out style racks because it makes updating patch panels much easier. However, with the vertical supports on this rack so close to the front, the rack will not swing with anything deeper than about 4". My network switch is about 9" and my PDU is about 12", unit won't swing without removing the side vertical support - which is probably not a good idea.
Overall the rack isn't terrible, there are better racks even in this price point.
