No, I do not recommend this product.
I've been installing networks for years. This bracket is worthless won't hold the panel in place with its flimsy clips that are certain to break.
Pros: Clear Instructions, on the shelf in an emergenc

Not sure it needs to be $40, but it was easy to use. I ended up using the plastic punch-down tool that came with the network jack wall outlet insert by the same company and it worked fine. Nice not having to buy a $30 punch down tool!
Pros: Easy to Use, Clear Instructions, Nice Design, Easy Installation
Cons: pricey

I have installed several of these on different client sites.
Patch panel itself is of nice quality, and the diagrams on the back are well labeled. I would not say that the mounting bracket is good at all. It comes with 2 wall screws that barely secure the thing to the wall, and several "Zip Ties" that fall apart as soon as there is pressure put on them. I would recommend ordering something online if possible, but if it is needed the day of, it will work sufficiently.
Pros: Easy to Use, Clear Instructions, available in stores
Cons: mounting bracket is garbage, zip ties are cheap

No, I do not recommend this product.
I have no complaints with the patch panel itself, but the white mounting bracket that is screwed to the wall is terrible. It doesn't hold the patch panel well. The 4 white tabs that are supposed to hold the patch panel are not snug enough. When you punch down a cable or when you try to unplug a patch cord the patch panel pops off.
