If its going into any living space at least in pictures it looks better then any budget 4 post I have seen. I have never done it, but have always been amazed by ikea`s furniture being used for different IT things.

LACK Side table - black-brown - IKEA
I've looked into this more than a few times but it didn't work for me either. I think it might combination of length, how much weight it could hold amongst others.

I'm going to see if Free Geek has anything but in the mean time suggest away!

I managed to find the rack cabinet that would be perfect for my usage on Craigslist except the guy wants close to original price for them (approx. 1.5k.) Considering that these were probably purchased from an auction for office close out of some sort and he seems to have taken pictures out of his garage or something, I just can't see myself shelling out that kind of money.

No love from Free Geek either.

Well I suggest you try Able Auction or contact Cpt Vortex to see if he got a set to let go. He does IT management for a company and I did see him let got a set of racks last time on BST.

It is but he 'recommended' paying close to regular price and I was only prepared to pay 200 dollar for it max. Which seems to be average going rate for a full cabinet.

I used to check quite frequently on AbleAuction when I didn't need it and I saw it all the time. Now that I want to get one, I don't see much relevant hardware for me. I think I'm participating in the comics auction coming up though! Super Excited for that one!

bcauction is another option. Looks like they only have one rack on there right now, and probably a bit bigger than what your looking for (42 bay).

Hmm might have found a good one.

ZZLEE forwarded me couple of links and I think I may end up going with one of them.

It's too bad HWC doesn't have thank feature like RFD even though I hate using their forums.
