Loads of alternatives from Sunrace, kmc etc. These tend to look nice and last longer. Don't get hung upon 7sod specific as chains designed for 8 are the same chains with those designed for 9 working just as well.

Shimano chains are beautifully quiet and smooth, but this seems to be achieved by a pitifully short life. ersonally I run SRAM chians and cassettes for 7s, they last longer and cost no more.
