Puzzle cubes of this size are usually over 50 pounds so I wasn't expecting much for a little under 18. I expected a fairly rough turning cube which broke easily, and with stickers which would start to peal up after a couple of solves, but I still purchased it as this would at least give me the chance to do a real 8x8x8, rather than just the online ones. Fortunately I was wrong... This cube has a nice feel to it, turns easily, and has decent stickers, all in all, a very nice large puzzle cube. I would have given a 4 star rating because if you don't square up the cube enough, and turn the edges to quickly, you are likely to pop out one of the centre pieces. I have done this a few times and popped them back in quite easily, but on one occasion it was a right pig to get back in, so I wouldn't recommend this cube to a speed solver, as for anyone else wanting a large cube, I would definitely recommend this one. I did however give a 5 star rating because of the very fair price.
