Rackmount cases - enclosure?

Im curious as to where people buy those racks. More so the cases that hold them. They are like closet. Not so much a barebone rack but a nice looking case with enclosures inside. Thanks much!

they're usually very expensive. second hand musical (19" rackmountable) cases can be a better, cheaper, solution.

the enclosures are the most expensive. my friend is picking up a used one pretty soon for 250 i think. but he is driving all the way to san jose to get it (about a 6 hour drive) they are large and heavy and would cost a lot to ship. he also picked up some rackmount cases from mwave for like 70 and he went down and picked those up (about an hour drive).

all in all - just to get 2 comps inside the rackmount enclosure its gonna cost him about 500 just for the metal, thats not including the hardware inside the cases.

The cases he bought are 4u cases by the way.

Hrm well i guess its going to be counterproductive to set one up then. I have 5 computers scattered amoung my desk and was thinking I would just stick them in an enclosure.

You could always build your own rack

you could still throw them in an enclosure -- but you will have to mod your cases to fit inside of it. you will need to mod them in the sense for mounting purposes -- and you will also probably not want your cdrom/dvdrom/burners to be vertical so you will have to mod them to lay horizontally. its probably more of a hassle then a benefit to do it

Well, certainly not counterproductive in a neatness sense.

But if you're thinking money-wise, just get some cheap wire shelving and stack them. No need to spring for Nexel; get the knockoffs at Bed Bath & Beyond.

True, and if you have an ikea in your area they carry the shelves for cheap as well.

buying them new is almost always stupid. find someone near you selling one on ebay. it happens every once and a while, but you have to be vigilant.

if you happen to live near Los Angeles, I could probably hook you up.
