The Sonnet RackMac Mini Rackmount Enclosure is a fully-assembled rackmount solution that allows you to securely install up to 2 Mac Mini servers or computers side-by-side into 1U of rack space. Featuring internal rubber bumpers and a shallow 11" (30 cm) mounting depth, it holds your computers firmly in place during transport in portable rack applications such as Gator Cases, making it an ideal solution for musicians and DJs.

Depending on rack type and position in the rack, the RackMac Mini enables normal WiFi and Bluetooth wireless operation in most configurations, allowing you to use iPhone or iPod Touch application control apps. The front panel features a power switch, USB port, optical drive slot, and a power indicator LED. The rear panel provides open access to the computers' ports. In addition it features holes for cable ties that help secure the cables, preventing them from getting tangled and damaged.

The RackMac Mini directs cool air through front panel openings to the computers air intakes, and then out from the back, helping the computers maintain an ambient temperature. Strategically placed air dam and seals help prevent hot air from circulating in the unoccupied computer bay and around the computers.

      Really 4.5 stars deserved. My specific use is in a small theater on a college campus. We recently purchased two Minis to control and playback sound and projection cues.On a college campus, anti-theft is a serious concern. I have the rackmount in a locked room (with some student access), installed with 4 security screws (not included), and with longer (deeper into the rack) devices installed above and below. This seems to adequately prevent any theft, as well as making the rear ports difficult to manipulate for those who wish to meddle. If you don't know there are Macs in there, you'll never know.All described features work great and fit is perfect - a rep from Sonnet says all "unibody" - that is, silver-top - Minis will fit this rack.One wish-list item is to include a simple lock mechanism of some kind, a small locking steel tab or bar of some kind, especially if K compatible, would make this a truly killer purchase. Other Mini securement products exist, but the only other rackmount that was on the market is overseas (I'm in Chicago) and discontinued.Overall very happy with it! You'd love it in a built-in rack or a road case.

      Looks great. Could not fit a SuperDrive in without adding some support material. Thought I could... Also the button you turn it on with does not always spring back to place correctly--so occasionally it restarts the computer by accident. I do like the USB extension so you can plug in a flash drive at the FRONT of the rack--that is very useful/helpful. Overall a good product but needs some improving.

                              This rack mount is easy to use, holds the mac mini well, and allows front panel power on and off. I use these exclusively for all my road cases so they get bumped all around and hold up great.

                                This unit is made well and works as described. I should have bought it sooner. It's much cleaner having the Mac Mini in the rack and not taking up room on the desktop.

                                              This thing is SICK! The chassis is VERY well made, the front facing button means no more fiddling around on the back of the unit where crucial connections are. The front mounted / USB 3 jacks are perfect for thumdrives and fast! We use the mac minis for our rack mounted mobile dj systems and these are a dream come true. We mount the mac mini in the right bay and an external hard drive in the left. You have to remove two screws to get rid of the partition, but it fits great and works perfect.The back has points for wire management as well. This thing is rock solid...

                                                I used this to mount a new (2014) Mac Mini and usb disk drive. Since this is for the older mac mini version with the included disk drive the fit was not exact. I added padding under one side of it to allow for mounting the usb disk drive so that it aligned with the slot for a disk.
                                                Very durable, it works well now. The included usb line and power button on the front are very useful and work well.

                                                I was looking for a good solution to rack up my Mac Mini Server. Looking through several possible rack solutions and various ways to rig my own I decided to purchase the Sonnet Solution. I could not be more pleased as it was a perfect fit and provided room for an external USB hub as well as an extra compartment I used to place an external HD in a storage enclosure the same form factor as the Mac Mini. Sonnet Solution also has holes in the back to tie wrap your cables. It is an expensive solution but all things considered still the best value for a rack mount solution for Mac Mini. Great product and B&H got it to me quickly!

                                                    Many, many "pros," and very few cons. The only cons are price (which really isn't all that bad, and B & H does happen to have the most competitive price I've seen -- so if you buy from them you know you'll be getting the best deal going), and also the power switch arrangement seems a little weak (the power switches seem like they may fail due to mechanical wear issues). Otherwise a brilliant piece of kit, and simply the best option available for mounting a mini in a rack.

                                                            It is a great fit for the 2011 Mini. It holds it securely. The only downside is the USB cable for the front USB port is a little short; it fits but is tight.

                                                              We purchased this product to create a clean media rack. This is the best mac mini rack mount i have seen. we have 2 we use one with a mac mini with a built in optic drive and we use the other with a newer mac mini and a bracket to allow the mounting of a mac book air superdirive.

                                                                    This is the best way to secure a Mac mini when used in a media setting. I like the way it makes the Mac blend in with the rack, people do not know there is a Mac in the rack and they leave it alone. The best part is the frot mounted USB ports. They cam both be plugged in to the same mini if you are only mounting one.
