I will try to be fair...
Carnivore 03.10.2018
I will try to be as fair as humanly possible here: even with apparenlty identical features, the quality here is not comparable to my other rack cases (mainly old SKB, some Gators and plastic Anvils that had been in my rig for ages) BUT, again in full fairness, those cost more than double the price. At this price point, this rack is unbeatable.

Stability and perception of quality is also affected as the case becomes larger. I had the chance to check the smaller Thomann 2U and the impression, obviously, was better. Mine is one of the largest (6U) so stability and structure suffers from thinner materials (again in comparison with cases costing much much more). I guess that if heavy travelling is not on your immediate schedule, this case is perfect. If you are about to kick off your world tour next week, you might consider a more challenging investment.

Having all that said, I am again grateful that Thomann is offering a cheaper alternative for all of us stucked in our home studios. So far, did get the job done flawlessly.

Love it!
TiagoTi 14.05.2020
Overall the unit seems lighter than other similar 6U racks I tried.
Seemes deeper than other 6U racks, remaining dimensions are similar. Internally theres enough space for cable management and for tucking cables on the sides and on top of the 1stU and beneath the last U.

One of the cover lids comes with zip pouch which I find great!
The butterfly latches are very tight (Some other reviews complain about these but mine are very sturdy).

Came bundled with 22 black rack screws and rings.
Has rack rails on both front and back, however only on one of the sides both rackrails have some screw holes with different sizes, not sure if this is intentional.

The handles seem very sturdy, as other reviews mention they are not very confortable however they seem on par confort-wise with other similar 6U racks.

Has a single UP sticker on one of the sides, could use come additional UP/DOWN/FRONT/BACK stickers.

Overall a great unit for an unbeatable price.

Very solid rack case
mbauwens 16.08.2017
I bought this for home and live use of some recording devices in a 19" form factor. I have mostly used it indoors and have not had the need to carry it around very much, but it has already proved to be very useful and also very easy to work with. The construction is sturdy and installation of new units is very easy. There is also enough place in the back for a rack light and I really like the fact that one of the doors has a pouch with a zipper. The only downside is that the case material maybe could have been a little bit stronger and as well as the quality of the butterfly lids. However, I have not had any problems with either of these features.

Nice and light but not all good..
Anonymous 06.04.2017
Purchased this case to replace a tired old plywood and aluminium rack which had seen a LOT of use.

I liked the fact that you could mount devices to the front and back of the case. I fitted a shelf in the rear for some non-standard devices and a connector plate with speakons and USB for convenient access to the amps and digital audio ports

However I did not think the case would take much abuse on the road. The plastic is somewhat brittle and worst of all, the front and rear covers are secured with cheap butterfly catches. These are very loose and the covers have a tendency to fall off in transit - not good!

I guess I will keep it for now but will find an alternative the next time round..
