Is a Gator 3U Shallow an upgrade for me?

  1. I'm using a battered old SKB SU shallow X-rack for my GK700RBII, and it works fine but for the endlessly annoying twist-on/off rear panel (one tab broke and the panel was promptly replaced by SKB, thankfully). I also have trouble with the lower edge interfering with my connections. I've been looking at either a 2U or 3U Gator shallow, as they look well-made and have a real detatchable rear cover but have heard horror stories about the latches rattling or being generally loose; also see that they look wider and heavier. I like the more streamlined 2U, but some say the 3is better for ventilation, as the GK fan is on top. Any suggestions from rack-users out there? The 3U SKB ATA is more than I'd like to spend at the moment.
