Rack Mounting - but what are the best racks for the right price?

I rack mount everything using Middle Atlantic products. They have a new, one piece, welded design that works wonderfully but is also quite economical too. My 7 foot tall rack with eight shelves cost me roughly $700 new. The Mid Atlantic products offer me endless flexability and wire management is a snap. I have my rack on casters (instead of rails saving me $$$$) and I couldn't be happier. Mid Atlantic is the way to roll if you want a professional looking install for your gear.

Ditto to Andrew's response. My wife [after I said I wanted to "hang" a 50" plasma in the living room] told me that's OK.............just get ALL the equipment OUT of the living room!!!!! That means a processor, 2 dvd players,a 300 disc CD plaer, 4 amps, the cable box, a power conditioner and a lot of wiring] Middle Atlantic's rack saved the day; EVERYTHING into the hall closet with wiring running through the basement. Very neat & tidy & the WAF was outstanding!!! "The living room looks much bigger"

This L.A. supplier is often cheaper than the MidAtl stuff
