"Ein ganz großer Pluspunkt des 605er ist seine Front aus gebürstetem, schwarz eloxiertem Aluminium. Erwähnenswert ist hier besonders die Materialstärke von 8 mm, diese ist deutlich spürbar beim Öffnen der Frontpanelklappe. Dank Firewire Anschluss und Card-Reader dürften alle Geräte sofort Wiedergabe bereit sein."

"Суть Fractal Design Node 605 скрывается в его названии. Node – буквально означает «узел» или «основная часть в системе». То есть, данный корпус способен стать основой центра домашней развлекательной системы малой или средней мощности, внешностью которой смогут восхищаться хозяева и гости. А выглядит он действительно красиво и представительно. Корпус достаточно компактен, как для HTPC, вмещающего полноразмерные компоненты, и обладает хорошим уровнем звукоизоляции. "

"Pokud zvolíte správné komponenty, můžete si v této skříni postavit velmi výkonný herní PC do obýváku, který tam v této pěkné skříni rozhodně nebude dělat ostudu. Přední část skříně se opravdu povedla a má plnou výbavu, co můžete vůbec potřebovat.[…]

Skříň je jinak dostatečně prostorná a dobře chlazena (pokud použijete hodně výkonné komponenty, osaďte i 80mm pozice ventilátory). Odhlučnění je pak na slušné úrovni, a žádného vrzání, drnčení apod. a jiných nezvyklých projevů, jsme si u skříně nevšimli, což svědčí o kvalitním zpracování a návrhu.  Celkově tedy opravdu povedený základ pro výkonnější HTPC. V současnosti stojí tahle skříň zhruba 3100 korun vč. DPH. Když se podíváme kolem, pár podobně stavěných konkurentů by tahle skříň kolem měla, ale rozhodně se neztrácí. V některých ohledech je podle nás chytřeji řešení a dost možná ze všech cenově srovnatelných konkurentů nejlépe vypadá. A to zdaleka nepatří k nejdražším. Pokud tedy hledáte slušnou HTPC skříň za rozumné peníze, Fractal dostál své pověsti a Node 605 nabízí za slušnou cenu velmi dobrou kvalitu, velmi pěkný design a hlavně funkčnost."

"Fractal je kupcima sa 605-icom ponudio vrlo dobro kućište, visoke kvalitete izrade i dobrih svojstava. Bilo da će na kraju završiti kao poslovno računalo, ili HTPC ili nekakav hibrid kućnog računala i HTPC-a, 605 će se u svakoj situaciji snaći odlično. Aluminijska fronta mu daje dozu elegancije i ekskluzivnosti, a oprema je točno onakva kakva se traži za jedno HTPC računalo. Kvaliteta materijala i izrade je na visokom nivou kao i do sada kod Fractalovih proizvoda."

"Poate că procedura de testare folosită a fost atipică, dar şi Fractal Design Node 605 este o carcasă atipică. Cu toate acestea, cred că cele prezentate sunt suficiente pentru a vă forma o părere despre calitatea desăvârşită a acestui produs. Design-ul excelent, materialele de foarte bună calitate şi construcţia genială sunt aspectele cheie ce caracterizează Fractal Design Node 605. La fel ca Define R4, modelul lipseşte de pe piaţa din România, dar bazându-mă pe preţurile din alte ţări, estimez că ar trebui să coste între 600-650 Lei. Poate că vi se pare mult, dar după părerea mea suma este perfect justificată pentru ceea ce oferă produsul. Până la urmă, vorbim despre o carcasă elegantă, bine finisată, surprinzător de încăpătoare şi bine ventilată ce nu va dezamăgi niciun utilizator care doreşte să construiască un premiu remarcabil Fractal Design Node 605 este noua definiţie a eleganţei din sufragerieHTPC modern. Ba aş adăuga chiar că televizoarelor le va fi extrem de greu să ţină pasul cu Fractal Design Node 605 în materie de eleganţă şi rafinament. De aceea, recomand cu încredere modelul tuturor utilizatorilor cu pretenţii ridicate şi nu pot decât să sper că îşi va face cât mai curând apariţia şi în România."

"Das Fractal Design Node 605 hinterlässt einen sehr guten Eindruck. Das Gehäuse ist außerlich sehr schlicht und einfach gehalten und wird von der schwarzen Aluminiumfront hervorragend verziert. An Frontanschlüssen unter der Aluminumklappe wurde auch nicht gespart: dort sind FireWire, USB 3.0, Sound und (micro)SD-Kartenleser installiert. An der rechten Seite befindet sich eine dreistufige Lüftersteuerung für drei Ventilatoren und diese sorgt für die optimale Einstellung. Der Innenraum ist sehr einfach gehalten und bietet genug Platz, um auch große ATX-Mainboards verbauen zu können. Das Einzige, was beim Innenraum heraus sticht, ist die Dämmung im Deckel und die Festplattenmontage. Die Quallität im Äußeren und Inneren ist hervorragend - wie man es bislang von Fractal Design gewöhnt ist."

"Overall, I was very impressed with the Node 605 in basically every aspect. It is hard to emphasize just how good looking the Node 605 is in an entertainment center, and how at home it is among higher end equipment. One look says “Hey, I am a $1500 mono-block amp”. Installation was easy, and the component options and cooling flexibility is unmatched by any other HTPC I have come across with similar size. The silent cooling of the Node 605 is a huge plus in an HTPC environment, and the ability to use larger coolers certainly helps the cause even further. The Node 605 also lays out everything you could possibly hope to use on the front I/O for great convenience, while keeping it hidden away behind a very discreet door. The Fractal Design Node 605 certainly makes a huge statement that it belongs in the upper echelon of HTPC cases, and backs it up with beautiful design, incredible functionality and component flexibility and cooling that bely its size."

Even with a large graphics card in the system there is plenty of space and cables are well out of the way, leaving a good amount of airflow within the chassis...So it seems fractal designs have done it again, just as they did with the Node 304 and the Define R4 I am completely won over by the Node 605.

"Das Node 605 hat uns im Großen und Ganzen gut gefallen. Die einfache Formgebung mit der 8-mm-dicken Aluminiumplatte und der bündigen Klappe sind zweifellos das i-Tüp­fel­chen des Chassis. Es knüpft nahtlos an dem an, was ein HTPC sein soll, nämlich in erster Linie anpassungsfähig. Das Node 605 ist kompatibel zu vielen Mainboard-Formfaktoren und bietet, auch wenn es je nach verwendetem Motherboard-Typ etwas enger zugehen kann, eine gute Räumlichkeit mit viel Platz. Der im HTPC-Segment wichtige Kartenleser und Firewire-Anschluss fehlen ebenfalls nicht. Ein Lob hat auch die Verarbeitungsqualität verdient. Hier haben wir keine einzige Schwachstelle entdecken können. Die Lackierung ist gleichmäßig, Gewinde sind sauber geschnitten und auch sonst mangelt es dem Node 605 in dieser Hinsicht an nichts."
