"The Node 304 is a small form factor case with a very unassuming front panel. On first inspection, we thought it looked like a HTPC or piece of home theatre equipment - maybe a NAS at a stretch but not really a high end gaming demon. How wrong we were. "

" Fractal Design Node 304 er et veldig fint og lite kabinett, til en ganske så hyggelig pris. [...] Plass til seks harddisker i et så lite kabinett er imponerende, men så er også monteringen svært enkel og grunnleggende. Du må skru mange skruer selv, men trøsten er at den vesle boksen kan bli en ganske anstendig filserver, eller NAS."

"The Node 304 wins the 2013 Golden Mic award from Computer Ed Radio! This year our taste in computer cases changed as we here at Computer Ed Radio fell in love with Small Form Factor building. So our choice for the case category was easy. The Node 304 is a small form factor case designed to use mITX motherboards. The case design allows for a small foot print but still has room for a number of cooling solutions including the use of some AiO coolers. Silent operation with great cooling potential and Fractal’s minimalistic styling means this case not only is great for building but sexy to look at."

"When we dug into the Node 304, I was seriously blown away by its styling. It doesn’t seem like it was that long ago that we had another Mini ITX case in from Fractal Design called the Array. I (Wes) was impressed with that case and still keep it around for use to this day. Its hard to believe that Fractal was able to find a way to improve on that design enough to surprise me. The Node 304 is a great looking case that even from across the room you will be able to tell it is a Fractal case. The clean styling is what they are all about and with more and more gamers getting older, having kids, and moving up in the world, the market for clean cases continues to grow. A good example of this styling is the location of the front I/O panel and power button, Fractal tucked it around on the side where it is still easy to get to but kept the front clean. Really my only complaint came with the limited room for power supplies in the Node 304, especially if you need to install a long video card. Those of you looking for a good price will also be impressed with the Node 304, at less than $90 its a great deal as well."

"NODE 304, to obudowa bardzo niepozorna, która z zewnątrz wydaje się być kolejną, przeciętną konstrukcją dla HTPC, jednak po bliższych oględzinach i zajrzeniu do środka, okazuje się, że jest to model niezwykle funkcjonalny. Przede wszystkim trzeba podkreślić możliwość zamontowania aż sześciu dysków twardych, pełnowymiarowego zasilacza, wysokiego coolera CPU i długiej karty graficznej (po usunięciu jednej tacki na dwa dyski). Oprócz tego Fractal Design zapewnia nam doskonałą jakość wykonania, trzy wentylatory w zestawie, kontroler obrotów, filtry przeciwkurzowe oraz kabel USB 3.0 z dodatkową wtyczką dla USB 2.0. Zabrakło nam jednak przycisku Reset oraz możliwości montażu zewnętrznego napędu 5,25 cala.

"Mit dem Node 304 hat Fractal Design viel richtig gemacht und tatsächlich einen guten Allrounder geschaffen. Durch die Möglichkeit bis zu sechs 3,5" Festplatten zu verbauen, lässt sich das Gehäuse als Homeserver oder NAS verwenden. Dass aber auch längere Grafikkarten und große Towerkühler Platz finden, ist es problemlos möglich, den kleinen Cube als Gaming-PC zu konfigurieren. Doch auch mit dem schlichten, zeitlosem Design wird das Node 304 bei vielen Anwendern punkten. Bei der Verarbeitung kann das Node 304 ebenfalls durchweg positiv zu überzeugen. Mit dem Netzteil in der Front setzt Fractal Design auf einen eher ungewöhnlicheren Aufbau, der sich in der Praxis als sehr durchdacht herausstellt. So lassen gewöhnliche ATX-Netzteile im Gehäuse verbauen."

"So if you are in the market for a very compact chassis to house your Mini ITX or DTX motherboard that has flexibility, features and great looks then yeah, the Fractal Design Node 304 should be very high on your shopping list. It is compact, looks great and would make for an excellent file-server thanks to the large amount of HDD space. Pop in a AMD APU based motherboard like we did and boom, you just created yourself a fine Home Theater PC. Add in something a little more spicy and you can even insert a graphics card. Graphics cards up to 310mm in length are supported when 2 HDD brackets are removed, but remember that graphics cards longer than 170 mm will conflict with PSUs longer than 160mm. So PSUs wise, less then 150mm length and modular are the keywords here."

"Inutile de le nier, nous sommes sous le charme. Ce Node 304 est, à nos yeux, une petite réussite, surtout grâce à l'absence d'un 5.25", permettant ainsi d'obtenir un boitier compact, tout en restant compatible avec de grosses configurations.[...] A 80€ l'exemplaire, il y a de la concurrence, mais ce Fractal Design est le seul, pour l'instant, à offrir un volume compact et une compatibilité avec de gros radiateurs CPU."

"Where the Node 304 remains essentially bulletproof is its noise profile. At both idle and load, it's still actually difficult to hear at idle or load.[...] It's an attractive, small, quiet case, with reasonable thermal performance. The fact that there are no external drive bays means the exterior is particularly clean, and it's striking.[...] I hope to see the Node 304 employed by enthusiasts and boutiques alike."

"Skønt kabinet, det er der ingen tvivl om. Pladsen er udnyttet utrolig godt, så der er plads til det som de fleste folk kan have brug for i et mini-ITX setup. Kvalitet er der masser af, og det er robust og stærkt bygget, man kan ikke vride i kabinettet. Det hele spiller bare rigtigt godt sammen, og så er det samtidig lækkert at se på. Jeg er ret sikker på dette har WAF (Woman Acceptance Factor), så man er sikret at konen ikke siger nej til at have det stående. Alt i alt, godt arbejde og der er ikke noget at sætte fingre på."

"The Node 304 is a pretty powerful case for its size. Imagine what can be contained internally. Up to six hard drives can be installed. The case fits mini-ITX and DTX motherboards. There is space for a full sized GPU with the two expansion bays, CPU cooler, and PSU. Lastly, there is advanced cooling installed. Small computing has come a long way in the past few years.[...]The Fractal Design Node 304 case is an excellent choice for any HTPC, file server, or LAN box."

"Fractal Design NODE 304 offers a very elegant and clean design which can fit very well near a big flat TV or as a small black box connected to a network as a NAS system. I want to say that the black matt and white colour scheme is very beautiful and stylish.[…]For me the case is really nice and I can say the modularity is a real plus and this case is suitable to be used as HTPC system or a NAS system."

Он сочетает продуманный внутренний дизайн с успешной системой охлаждения и стильной алюминиевой передней панелью. Так что компактный корпус от шведского производителя Fractal Design нас действительно порадовал."

"Solange man auf ein optisches Laufwerk verzichten kann, ist das Node 304 ein gelungenes Mini-ITX-Gehäuse. Es kombiniert einen intelligenten Innenaufbau mit einem gelungenen Kühlsystem und einer schicken Aluminiumfront. Diesen kleinen Schweden-Happen hat Fractal Design also gut zubereitet."

"Wir hatten in letzter Zeit schon einige Mini ITX Gehäuse in der Redaktion, doch noch nie wurde ein Case so wunderschön und voller Liebe designed. Das Node 304 Gehäuse ist nicht nur ein Cinema System, dank der Option, dass nicht ein vorgegebenes Netzteil vorhanden ist, sondern der Benutzer selbst eins wählen kann und auch dank der vorhanden Lüfter mehr als ausreichend Frischluft ins Gehäuseinnere gelangt, demzufolge einem Gamingsystem auch nichts im Wege stehen würde."
