blank patch panel with keystone slot vs patch panel with built-in jack. I guess both will work since patch panel is just a way to organize network cables. But which one is easier to install? I am tryin to decide between these two. Thank you!

Seems to me $23 for the Trendnet blank plus $30(at least) for the 24 keystone jacks you'll have to buy and and an afternoon getting it setup puts you in the same place as the $48 prewired solution you take out of the box and put on your rack

In this case your are terminating into keystones in both cases. With one it will be keystone you have to buy and attach to the bracket and in the other to the keystones already attached. Personally I'd go with the Cable Matters. Only thing you have to worry about is attaching the cable
