Since I bought my Cisco equipment, I have had it racked in the cheap, two-post desktop rack that came with the equipment when I bought it. It was pretty bad, but it worked:

I really wanted something better than this, so I started doing some web searches to get ideas on what I could do better. Along the way, I discovered Hayden James's home lab beginner's guide, and decided I wanted a wall-mount rack. I did a lot of research about wall-mount racks, and I settled on the Networks adjustable depth, swing-out 12U rack.

The rack arrived last week, and I was able to mount it earlier this week. I still have lots of work to do here, and this is going to be a huge improvement over the original setup.
