I purchased two of these as the space I had to work in would not allow even a small rack. The kit seems well made and all of the connections I made worked the first time. No reworking necessary. A previous comment mentioned that it could use some cable ties. They are now included, so things are nice and tidy. The only reason that I gave it a 4 (I would have given it a 4.5 if I could) was that the punchdown block part was a little confusing. Some punchdowns come with a little black mark delineating one wire set from another. This one did not have this feature, so I had to pay extra attention to make sure that I had not missed a channel. Also, I had to figure out for myself (I searched the internet) that the wires were not grouped linearly per interface, but split 4 and 4, top and bottom per interface. Although there are some markings on the back, I had to figure it out for myself. A small instruction sheet showing the proper wiring would have been appreciated. Perhaps better markings on the back could accomplish the same thing. To sum it up, the install went very smoothly, the product feels well made and easy to handle. I would buy these again.
