Got mine today, was relatively easy to assemble EXCEPT...1 side panel came with the holes for the bottom brace drilled on the wrong end, so make sure you have a drill and 1/4" drill bit to make the appropriate holes. There are no pilot holes drilled in the wood top or markings where the screws should go, so you have to center the top on the frame before screwing it down, a tape measure is required to get it right. Would also recommend buying aftermarket rack screws. The ones that come with the unit aren't very long and have very small rubber washers to use with them. I found them barely big enough if the unit you're mounting has elongated holes in it. I bought Link AA67 screws and they worked perfectly. Once the unit is together it is quite sturdy and looks very elegant, would fit in nicely in any studio. Would have given it a 10 if not for the missing mounting and pilot holes.

The silver pegs pop out when I'm installing gear. It's not build well at all. Looks nice but that's about it.

Great little rack and much more aesthetically pleasing than a traditional IT server rack (and much cheaper too). I have a combination of audio and network gear on mine. As for the cage nuts (the things that go into the square holes everyone is complaining about), this is standard on most 19 inch racks. Older style racks had threaded holes, but the problem was when they became stripped you basically lost a rack slot. With cage nuts you just pop in a new nut and all is good.

I don't get why there are clips that go into the rack instead of being able to screw the gear directly to the rack. They fall out sometimes when taking out the screws to take gear out making my gear fall to the ground, they've cut me trying to install it. Just a poor design in my opinion.

I thought that $125.00 was a lot to spend on this, but I took the plunge and bought it. It's very well made and sturdy and looks really good in my home studio. Rack equipment which is not housed well can become annoying and an interference to the creative process - this unit solves that problem. My only quibble with it is that the overhang of the wooden surface means that your rack units are in shadow, but I mean to solve this by installing a cheap counter top light from Ikea to the underside of the wood surface. Oh, and allow extra time to fit the little rack clips into the BACK of the square rack holes! There's a knack to it - that's all I can say. All in all, highly recommended.

I purchased this Studio Side Rack as a standalone product. I did not purchase the Apex Studio desk. I am very happy with it as any comparable unit, including stereo stands from my local electronics store, was much more expensive. I highly recommend this product, it looks sharp, it cleaned up the stack of equipment I had sitting on my floor in my studio, and it is a great value. However, I do have a few suggestions that would make this product even better; 1. The frame is large enough to hold a 14 unit rack, but only a 12 unit rack is welded to it. This leaves empty space between the top of the rack and to underside of the table top. The space could be used more efficiently. 2. Apex should pre-drill pilot holes in the table top or provide a mounting template. It is up to the person assembling the rack to determine where to drill the pilot holes. It is difficult to center the table top to the rack as the table top is not square. 3. Finally, I was disappointed that the table top edge veneer molding on my unit does not meet up properly. As the unit is against a wall, I have placed the edge molding flaw to the back where it is not visible. Initially I installed the top with the long edge facing the front. I had to reverse the top to hide the flaw... I have owned this rack for 6 weeks. I am very happy with my purchase.
