Sonnet RACK-MIN-2X overview

  • 1Description

The Sonnet RackMac Mini Rackmount Enclosure is a fully-assembled 1U rackmount solution that fits up to two Mac Mini servers or computers side-by-side. Internal rubber bumpers hold your Mac Mini firmly in place during transport, making it an ideal solution for musicians and DJs. The front panel has a power switch, USB port, optical drive slot, and a power indicator LED. Furthermore, the rear panel opens to provide access to additional ports.

The RackMac Mini directs cool air through the front panel openings, past the computers, and out the back. Strategically placed air dam and seals also help prevent hot air from circulating in the unoccupied bay if you choose to install only one Mac Mini. In addition, its cable management holes provide room for cable ties, preventing cables from getting tangled and damaged.

    Sonnet RACK-MIN-2X reviews

    RackMac Mini Rackmount Enclosure is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 31.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent way to get a Mac Mini racked 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!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Mounting Solution for Ma ini 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...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Built like a tank As the name suggests, this enclosure is used to mount 2 Mac Minis into a Hergo rack cabinet. It is of solid metal construction that bolts into the rack securely with no warping or bending. The Macs dropped in without fuss, snugly held in place by the rubber strip. There was even room - barely - to wedge in Seagate Backup Plus Slim drives in the space behind the Macs. That was a welcome surprise. The only downside has been the remote power switches. I have been unable to line them up with the power buttons on the Minis and achieve successful function. Luckily I can get at the power switches by other means. All in all this product does what it is designed to do - hold a pair of Mac Minis in a rack. The price reflects the niche nature of the market.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for I have four of these in presentation rooms. They're expensive, but less expensive than replacing Mac Minis. The RackMac provides a clean installation and complicates theft (especially when used with a least one security rack screw). It provides a very sleek, rugged enclosure. The power button on the RackMac is a mechanical linkage that physically pushes the power button on the back of the Mac Mini. When combined with the superdrive kit, only one power button is needed. Remove the spring from the other and wrap tape around the shaft behind the rack face to keep it permanently pressed and prevent confusion. Keep in mind that the two front-accessible USB ports will use up half of your Mac Mini's USB ports, so if you use a wired keyboard and other USB peripherals you'll likely want a USB hub.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid, almost-secure production rackmoun 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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product! 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.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay... not perfect 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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good enclosure, not for new Mac Mini 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.
