Packaging and Contents
The Node 605 comes packed in a plain brown heavy duty cardboard box, which as always reassures us that money has not been wasted on the fripperies of glossy packaging. Inside we find the case nestled in a clear polythene bag betwixt two large chunks of polystyrene. The odds are, in these days of internet shopping that the box the item comes in will also be the one it is shipped in, with no additional means of protection from the gentle hand of the currier being added. We're pleased to say that in this instance the Fractal Design Node 605 arrived unharmed.
Once out of the box we find that along with the case itself we also have a small black box containing screws and accessories, along with a set of instructions.
With fellow Swedish designers IKEA along with many others these days favouring the "picture rich text light" form of instructions it's unusual to see a set of instructions which is primarily text based. Not a problem as such, as there is also a large exploded diagram to help guide, supported by the text itself being clear and comprehensive.
