    Server rack mount cabinet?

    I am finding it difficult locating somewhere I can buy cheap/2nd hand server cabinets.

    Any ideas?

    I am ideally after a 800mm deep (or deeper) 19" rack mount 9U cabinet. I could go bigger if need be.
    I've tried eBay and Google with no luck. Cheapest 1st hand is £140 including VAT and P&P. I want cheaper if possible.

    I've always been able to find a few on ebay, the smaller ones are a bit rarer though - most are the full 42u ones. They usually go for very little due to being collection only.

    Must admit theres not as many on at the moment as there have been when I've looked previously

    I know ict-direct has a load of Dell cabs + servers in stock. I've just been speaking to him this week about the same. Give him a ring.

    Don't all rush at once. I haven't had chance to place my order yet.

    Found plenty of cabinets of eBay but none that are short and at least 700mm deep.
    I have a couple of 1U servers that are 680mm deep. They would usually be housed in 44U cabinets but I only have space for about 12U.

    Google is a minefield. Any suggestions on search phrases?
    I can try 2nd hand or used but doesn't return much.
