Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I prefer all ports to be in the front(except the power connection). Most of the gear I use is rack mounted, and while I can access the rear of the racks, I’d rather not have to keep moving around the rack for set-up or maintenance reasons.
Good Luck!

    I agree. A console or serial port on the front of gear is the best option.
