Quoted from Fractal Design Node 605 Reviews:
Check out these quotes from Fractal Design Node 605 reviews & previews
"While it’s not the cheapest HTPC chassis on the market, it was never intended to be. It does however offer faultless build quality that makes it worth every penny and unless you didn’t like its visual appearance there is no reason why you wouldn’t want this as part of you media centre which I why I am happy to award it with our eTeknix Editors Choice Award."
"If the price drops somewhat, we would recommend the Node 605 without any reservations to anyone building a powerful HTPC, even though it requires a screw driver for installation. Even so and at its current price, it earns the Hardware.Info Silver Award."
"So that brings us to value where at £140 the Node 605 seems a touch expensive to us. There is no doubting that it has a nice finish and is reasonably flexible but for that price we would have liked to see the third fan location filled, or at least those two 80mm rear's. The case does however have that integrated fan controller which adds value, as does the card reader."
"Another impressive case from Fractal Design, although it’s a little overpriced in our opinion."
"It still offers crazy amounts of cooling possibilities for an HTPC chassis while also including everything you may want from a home theater system besides a built-in display. But the benefit of such a compact interior shows: the Fractal Design Node 605 is one of the shortest HTPC cases of such a format by clocking in with a depth of just 349 mm - a depth identical to most Amps and HT Receivers out there. The front cover is made of thick aluminum, just like you would expect of such a chassis, and the flip-down cover hides all of its ugly connectors and drives, which makes the case look quite spiffy in an HTPC rack."
