Indeed, and this holds true in majority of the cases.

One contention I have with using "new/unknown/word-of-mouth" brands is the cost. Not cost of the equipment themselves, but the cost when they fail or not meet specifications. We tend to spend an awful amount of money and time designing hardware so much so that it is often much cheaper to go with a proven and reliable brand (this is all relative) than to take a chance with a previously unused manufacturer and deal with the aftermath of failure.

That being said, personally I try to go with the most efficient solution myself. So I'm always up for trying out brands that I've previously never used.

That is true, luckily a lot of research and company information does help sometimes mitigate that worry about untested eqiupment.
So far it hasn't let me down, and I hope it never does.

That would probably fall in the Evolution S series.

Perhaps something like this?

Evolution S 1750 Tower/Rack (2U) Specifications
