Looking for PDU Recommendation


I am looking for recommendations for a 15A PDU for a Dell PowerEdge 2410 24U rack enclosure.  My current PDU only has 9 outlets and is mounted horizontally in the bottom back of the rack.  I would like to get one with more outlets - preferably around 15 - that mounts vertically in the back of the rack.  I do have servers on Dell's rapid rails and need to be sure the PDU is not so large that it interferes with the rails.  I have several devices with fat power adapters.  It would be nice if some of the plugs were spaced to allow for these - so hopefully I could plug those in without it covering some of the outlets.

I am not looking for a fancy managed or switched PDU.  Just a reliable one.  My servers plug directly into my UPS.  The PDU is for my firewall, router, rack fans, networking gear... A PDU with a meter that displays power draw is nice, but not needed.  Would like to keep this in the $100 - $150 price range, if possible

I started looking on my own, but the vertical PDUs I found were either too tall or far too expensive.

These are cheap - http://www.minutemanups.com/products/mmpd.php#basic
No dimensions on the vertical ones though so may be too long for your rack.

I don't know if you have 16A connectors on your current PDU but if you have then a couple of HP extension bars AF500A would do (two in a pack).
Have a look here here.
