I'm looking for a no frills rack to relocate my equipment from my family room to my basement.
It doesn't require any fancy sliders or pivots, but I would like to be able to wall mount it such that front and back are free.

Most 'in-wall' racks sit on a stand or the floor, or have casters. Wall mount racks are mounted to a sturdy wall, and swing open to access the rear.
I would suggest an old used cheap server cabinet on casters, next to a wall. Check craigslist and university surplus. Local eBay search may also be fruitful (i.e. within 100 miles of your zip code).
You can upgrade at any time, and learn a ton about racks in the interim, e.g. what size rack you really need, how shelves and rack ears work, how to mount stuff that doesn't need a rack.
