  • Overall decent product

    As reviewed by Sean Callihan on 3/14/2013

    Placed my order online and it arrived very fast. only issue is that the front lid is warped. now I have to drive to the store and swap it out for another. based on the price and what it is, this is a great case. Seems very sturdy and comes with the SKB lifetime warranty. Its perfect because it is shallow and light weight. I think its going to last forever (once I get the new lid). Comes with a set of rack screws as well (very handy to have).

  • Quality, yes... but read the specs!

    As reviewed by JOHN LAVERY on 4/23/2014

    I might've given this case four stars because of the seemingly shoddy design of the rear panel, but, to be honest, it has yet to disappoint me after significant use. Since SKB has a stellar warranty policy should it actually fail, I think the fifth star is justified. Thus far, my fear of the rear latches breaking has been unwarranted. Maybe I'm a bad example because I treat my stuff well, but I think the trick to not breaking the latches is to actually open them before yanking the panel off. Probably the worst thing I have to say, is that the front panel seems nearly water proof, but the rear isn't even slightly water resistant. The case does come with the necessary rail hardware, but I found it easier and possibly stronger to just use a 4U piece of threaded steel rail behind the aluminum one. I've read at least a few negative reviews concerning the internal depth, and the size of the rear panel. I don't think any of them are well-founded. Most seem to be from someone trying to cram in an over-sized amp. It's not called a shallow rack because it's stupid. If the shoe don't fit, don't buy it. I wear size 11. If I buy size 10, I don't think I've a right to complain. Moral of the story? Read the specs. So let's talk specs. It's 10.5 inches from the rail to the recessed flange of the rear panel. If you expect to have any space for wires, your units need to be less than 7 inches. For me, a Furman M-8x, PreSonus FireStudio, DigiMax, and headphone amp fit perfectly with just enough room in the rear for wires without being wastefully spacious. For controls, the front panel, at minimum, is cupped 2 inches deep from the rail. This seems a bit excessive, but it's not the end of the world. The rear opening is just shy of 4.5?16 inches. Yes, it does seem slightly small, but as best I can tell, it's a structural thing. If the opening were any larger, it would probably have to be similarly reinforced with aluminum like the front, significantly increasing the cost. Unless you get some more detailed pictures, it might not be evident that there is only one full handle on the right side, though there is a lip to grab on the left. For me, this has proved trivial, but might be noticeable if you pack some really heavy stuff in. At first, I was a little disappointed SKB hadn't figured out a way to make them stack for transportation with their standard-depth Roto Rack cases, but, after actual use, it's really been insignificant at worst. In the end, it's a tough little workhorse, and, as with most of their cases, I will likely never have to call SKB in on their warranty.

  • Horrible design flaw

    As reviewed by bryan poole on 5/20/2013

    I have owned a SKB rack case before, and had expected the same level of design with this model. Cons: back panel is HORRIBLY designed. Doesn't have metal clasps like the front, instead it's thin plastic with plastic twist locks. I am doubtful of its durability, but since it has a warranty from the manufacturer I guess I can live with that. The major flaw is the poor access to your mounted gear from the back. The back panel has a rounded flange that recesses further where the back cover twists on. The length of the opening is just over 4 inches!!! How can SKB think this is a good idea?! Here's my situation: Genz Shuttle 9.2 (2 rack spaces), and a Furman conditioner (1 rack space) mounted flush to the bottom. I can't plug in my amp because the flange covers it, and because its recessed, I can't fit the plug in between the flange. So, I mount everything flush to the top. Now I can't see the outlets on the conditioner to plug anything in!!!!! I even have one more rack space that I'm not using, and with this design, I can't think of how I could use it. Seriously, who thought making the back opening only 4 inches was a good idea?! Disappointing. And I paid 124 bucks for this thing. So it's great if you want to mount something that doesn't require electricity. Otherwise, pass on this junk and find something intelligently designed.
