I know this:

Folks I know who use Total Control racks have to tweak and muck with
configuration quite frequently. I know TC admins who are into their racks
literally on a daily basis.

I have a Lucent/Livingston PM-3 that has gone untouched for six months.
Everyone I know who uses PM-3 NAS's is also likewise mostly hands-off.

For the same money as a TC, probably less, you can get the Lucent box,
which many think is far superior to the TC chassis.

Your call. I'd go with Lucent.
