Fine if you put multiple small units in, horrible with a full size unit (3u in 3u e.g.)Great if you are putting in multiple pieces of gear. If you want to put in a unit the size of the case, as others have said, it's a total drag. There is weak double stick tape trying to hold the threaded metal to the case (so you sandwich the case between your rack ears and the threaded plate). Problem is, the moment you touch the threaded plate with a screw it falls off. When you are mounting smaller pieces you can just hold it, but with full size gear you can't hold it in place. It took a lot of tape and patience to mount a 3u sampler in a 3u case. I understand it allows them to make the cases with less strict dimensions, but it would be so easy to put a tiny piece of metal that would hold the threade plate in place and make these soooo much nicer to work with. Major design failure. Have the designers ever tried to use this product as intended?3NO DOUBT IN MY MIND!This is first rack case I have had to buy having gone from my big AMPEG SVT tube head to smaller (or lighter) amp SVT-3PRO. I added a rack mount tuner and power controller and feel that my investments are now road safe in the this rack. Not knowing much about them I went for the name and after reading reviews I am convinced I bought the best rack case I could, regardless of expense. I mean come on when you have $1500 worth of gear you want to be able to transport safely and set up easily money should not be an issue. That being said, This was reasonably priced and well worth the money. I think the lock and key is somewhat a waste because someone would probably steal the whole thing and care less about the lock. It is light and has comfortable sturdy carrying handles5Mounting system sucks!First of all, the threaded part of the mounting system is a separate plate with threaded holes. It's not easy to mount a 3 space piece of gear in a 3 space rack when the please had to be held in place through the back. I ended up taping the piece to the back of the holes. Here comes the best part, the holes don't line up! As you can see in the photo I couldn't get two rack screws in each side. And just throw away the plastic washers that come with the screws. They just squish off the screw.2Knew what I was getting...Gator Cases seems to be the "Wal-Mart" of audio protective gear. So, I knew that going in. I needed something to rack mount and travel easily with some gear, but I also knew I would not be throwing this case around the back of a truck or stacking it in huge piles of other gear. So, the fact that the top of this unit sags down, and is easily pressed and bent downward, was expected. however, it would have been a pleasent surprise if the top of the box was very strong and sturdy. As it is, if I stand on it, for example, it will completely sag into the top shelved gear and possible break. I would never stack this thing under heavy stuff. I have a pelican case for my camera gear, and I can smash it with a 12 pound sledge hammer, it that thing won't even budge, and it's roughly the same price/size. So, not sure what the deal is, Gator. But, again, this thing works, even with the flimsy top.3Shelf Location Options Are Very LimitedThis product is not as advertised. Though the pictures show 12 drilled holes on each vertical edge for installing shelves, most of them are not usable because they are not properly spaced. Some of the holes are drilled with 5/8" spacing and others are drilled with 1/2" spacing. As a result shelves can be installed in only 4 positions and not in the remaining 6 positions. This seriously reduces the usefulness. I called Gator and was told the holes should all be evenly spaced, so Amazon shipped a second case which we thought might be properly made. It has the same unevenly spaced holes. Another issue, though much smaller: the write-up states that it comes with 32 rack screws, though it actually comes with only 4. The second case also came with only 4 screws.2Great case, but watch out for the rails!I ordered this rack to replace an SKB roto-molded 8-space unit with wheels and a handle I recently ordered and promptly returned. While that was a nice unit, it was simply too large and too heavy to carry around a couple times a week. I would have gone SKB because I've had great experiences with them in the past. However, after getting that last SKB rack, I wanted to get the smallest and lightest rack I could find to mount my guitar equipment.First off, this is a shallow rack (14.5" from the front rail to the rear panel), but not as shallow as the shallow SKB units (11"). This is great, as I have a Furman PL-Plus C, which would not have been an option for their shallow-mount cases. Point: Gator.The overall construction of the case is as expected. It'll be durable enough to carry around your equipment, but something probably wouldn't survive a 6 foot fall. Other reviewers commented having plastic shavings inside the rack? Not the case here. It also comes with a bag of screws with rubber washers (nice), which I didn't really need as I already have a ton of these, but a nice touch nonetheless.Carrying it is a breeze. Because it's lightweight and shallow, carrying a full rack (unless you have heavy tube pre/power amps) is completely manageable. The handles feel nice and durable, but I'm only hauling about 30 lbs. of equipment.So here's the bad stuff:The rack's aluminum borders on the outside of the rack runs to the inside of the case, and is punched with holes for the rack (it's a single piece of metal). However, the actual rail is a secondary piece that requires screws to be in place to keep it in that sits behind this piece. It's not a huge deal, but if you aren't paying attention, all your rack equipment will be mounted sideways. I almost returned it when I realized everything was sideways, as I thought this was a huge quality control issue, until I realized it could be fixed by loosening the screws, pushing the equipment in the desired direction, and rescrewing while holding it in place. It's a bit irritating, but that should only ever happen once with this case.Also, while this unit boasts front and rear rails (which it has), I found that one of the four rails was very poorly drilled. I actually cannot put screws in about 75% of the positions on one of the rear rails because there is no threading. Thankfully, the only thing I have to mount on the back was a 1U patchbay, and after rotating the bad rail, I was able to install it successfully. You might also notice the rails look like a drunk 17 year old drilled the holes. Once equipment is in place, it's fine, but its a little off-putting at first. You could always upgrade the rails if you so desire, but if you can get everything mounted, it doesn't really matter.So because of the issues with the rails, this only gets 4 stars. I'm happy with my purchase, but I'm not happy with the quality control of this unit. Thankfully, for how I will be using this, it doesn't affect me, but your mileage may vary.4Gator bit me.I struggled a bit installing a Furman Power Conditioner/Surge protector and a Soundcraft Ui16 into this rack. The installation requires that you install your rack mounted devices in between the case and a supplied rod and then use the bolts to make the connections through 3 consecutive holes for each bolt that your device requires. It got a bit tricky because the rod does not easily line up with the holes on the case and holes on my devices, so it took some doing. However, once done, it appears to offer solid connections and device security. So overall, I would say it was worth the installation effort.4Great box!Box worked great for my "Shack in a Box" project! Came just as it should. I was worried at first because some reviews said the holes didn't line up properly, but mine lined up just as they should. The box is pretty light for the size, seems very sturdy, and the lids fit perfectly. I'm glad I dont have to worry about my equipment getting damaged while transporting it now....recommended!5Almost perfect as is, but...The alignment of the holes and bracket are off. I have to push the left side of my equipment down while pushing the right side up. You can see by the first picture that the brackets are off alignment. Like the bends were off. The plastic parts of the body flex a bit too much for my comfort. I guess it's why the case is so light.And most importantly... the case needs is a pouch/bag attached to the inside of one of the lids. Like the rear lid. I use a Surface Pro 4 to control my digital mixer and I needed a place to store it with the case. Along with the cables and other accessories. Not to mention having a place to keep miscellaneous cables and stuff. And I did just that. I bought a tomtoc laptop bag for a 13" laptop/tablet and removed the handles and shoulder straps and then hot glue the bag to the inside of the rear case. It fits perfectly and closes without catching or pushing on anything.4Works, but has design issuesI feel this is a well built case and will protect my gear. It's pretty lightweight and deep enough for what I wanted to put in it. As far as a case goes, this is a decent, cost effective unit. My complaints come when I try to use the front or rear covers, With the way these secure and how the latches work (this could well be my unit with the latches being somewhat floppy?) it's somewhat difficult to get the covers all the way off without raising the whole rack up off the table. I've spoken with other people who have this same design, and they feel the same way about it - if you're not going to open the covers or just not use them it's not a problem, but since I bought the rack to put portable sound gear in to take to events (and would like them protected while in transit) that kind of gets in the way. I've got other racks without the bottom center guides on them and they are much easier to use. I don't expect to use this rack all that often (it's a microphone rack and I mostly DJ - not much call for me to do live sound reinforcement gigs) so my pain will be limited. I may even end up donating this to a school where the locks would make more sense for them to have (I doubt I would ever use a the locks on something that could be picked up and carried away). I bought it 'used' from the warehouse so I can't complain about the price and so far as I can tell it's exactly as advertised as far as condition, I just am unhappy with how the front and rear covers interact with the rest of the case when being removed or put back on.3
