  • Conclusion: If not without some flaws and these are only minor in my opinion the lack of cable management space could be issue for some people, but I found there to be just enough room. As with buying any popular brand of computer case there is always a price to be paid.

14 March 2013
  • Conclusion: Reviewing the Fractal Design Node 304 is actually a somewhat layered experience, which is interesting given the fundamental simplicity of the design.
