My original intention of building this machine was to have something that could be used in my living room for things like VR, gaming, and browsing. I wanted to avoid all of the typical RGB and have something that could be a center piece for the living room. I decided on the LZ7 because of its modularity and customization was a breeze.
This was my first SFF build so I didn't know what to expect going into it as far as building. Wit that being said, the assembly was simple. The instructions were very straightforward. Although the case is only 7 liters in volume there was very few times I had any more trouble than one would in any mid size case. I will note that everything has a dedicated space and it gives you just enough clearance to fit what you need. The build quality is phenomenal, every panel and corner felt sturdy and sleek, I love it. The further and further I got with this build the more excited I got, every piece felt like a new Lego being added to my spaceship. It felt much like when I was a kid playing with Legos. I got increasingly excited with every new panel I added. It was the most fun I have ever had with a build.
The performance of the machine is better than I anticipated. I decided to test it out for a week or so before I moved it to the living room. I am able to game at 1440p no problem on mostly high setting and still hitting high fps. I also use it for some DevOps work as well. So far I don't plan on moving it to the living room anytime soon. I love the aesthetic, the minimal look, extra space on my desk, and incredible performance for such a tiny machine. I plan to swap out panels and corners down the line to change the look whenever I got bored of its look. At the moment I am extremely satisfied with its look so I don't see that happening anytime soon.
