InWin G7 Mid-Tower Chassis Review

If the GT1 case was a little too out there for you, InWin offers a sleeker version with the G7.

The last chassis we looked at from InWin was the GT1, a racing inspired design that in the end failed to impress me at the current pricing. There was a lot going for the chassis in my opinion as it did deliver a full set of features, and in the end, I was able to at least get the system built and was able to show it off. At the same time there were quite a few shortcomings to the interior design, and in the end I felt that the interior of the chassis is where InWin cut corners.

My hopes aren't very high for this latest submission either now as a result of the GT1 findings. With the basic idea that they took the same interior design and layout, trimmed some of what they thought were unneeded options, the basic concept is to offer a sleek and simplistic version of the same case. InWin is not the only company to take this approach, just about every company on the market has done this at one point or another. The only issue I see with this latest submission is that it is based on a chassis that already said wasn't what I think my readers would want, and pretty much already failed the first entry InWin provided. I am trying to keep an open mind, and since I already did this once, maybe there are some things I just didn't see the first time around, and possibly salvage this design. Even with all of this at play I am trying to keep an open mind, but InWin has their work cut out for them after seeing the GT1.

Today we are taking a look at the G7, which as I addressed, is very similar to the GT1. The obvious differences are that this time the chassis is much squarer, this time I received a black version, and its outward appearance is sleeker and offers a brushed aluminum like front panel to attempt to class up this chassis.

If you could see yourself using the GT1, but weren't sold on the aesthetics, the G7 mid-tower chassis from InWin may be the answer for you, but as I said my hopes aren't very high.
