Just about to start a proper play-through of this and wondered if its worth sacrificing nodes to get into the locked rooms.

Depends, sometimes it is if your short on ammo. Most of the time theres a couple thousand in credits. Other times I have found an audio log or two. Generally I save before using the node, then open the door and if it is worth it I keep it open, if not reload save.:locked

1st playthrough on Hard - only using plasma cutter.

I've always used the nodes - in fact I keep one extra just in case I run across a door like that. I've found that cost:benefit is usually weighted on the benefit side: I can sell off everything in the room for more than what the node costs. However, since it is mainly health packs and plasma rounds, it is more beneficial to me than buying from the store (due to inflated prices).
