Hi Lucie,
We use both rack systems in our Revcos but find the front sliding access 
are really useful and has significantly increased our freezer box 
organization....no sliding-sticking problems.
My only issue is these racks come in a huge frame that occupies the 
complete shelf space.....leaving no space for non-boxed stuff (bottles, 
specimen bags, etc). So, we have dedicated two shelves to these front 
sliding racks and other two have the side racks and oddball stuff.
Hope this helps.

Praveen Arany,
