Fractal Design Node 605 HTPC Chassis Review
Peter Donnell / 179 days ago
This week I’ve been able to spend time with the Node 605 HTPC chassis from Swedish manufacturer Fractal Design. We’ve had a few Fractal Design chassis in for review over the last couple of months, such as the Define R4 and the Node 304 M-ITX chassis, both of which are some of the best in class chassis for their respective sizes and earned our eTeknix Editors Choice Awards.
Fractal Design are well known for their slick styling, solid build quality and premium performance and I no doubt that the Node 605 will offer anything less. The chassis is priced at around £110, which isn’t cheap but it is in line with the competition for similar chassis solutions. Fractal aren’t known for their cheap prices but as we’ve seen in the Node 304 and the Define R4 you get great value for money in terms of the three big aspects of style, quality and performance.
“The concept of Fractal Design is to provide products with an extraordinary design level, without compromising the important factors of quality, functionality and pricing. The computer of today has come to play a central role in most people’s home, creating a demand for appealing design of the computer itself and its accessories.” – www.fractal-design.com
There are plenty of choices when it comes to HTPC chassis design, with several manufacturers giving you tidy solutions that will allow you to fit a full PC system into your home entertainment system. Lets start with a quick look at the specification of the Node 605 then well move and and see just what it has to offer.
