For those of you who wish to simply have a rubix cube, by all means by the regular version. However that does not mean that this product is not worth the purchase, this cube is obviously designed for speed cubing and as such it can be a bit difficult to learn on it (the faces occasionally turn when you don't want them to). I did have an original Rubix cube but the stickers have all but come completely off now and the good thing about this cube is that they don't use sticker they use coloured plastic. If you intend to become a speed cuber then this is definitely the cube for you, also some people use lubricants but I personally don't see the point on this cube, you can easily get your rotations per second up to 1.5 or more and can also easily get complete solve times down ... full review
"Great product, perfect for both beginners and advanced cubers"
The cube is exactly what i expected, it turns smoothly and comes perfectly adjusted, there is no need for lubing or adjusting the tensions. The only problem though is that it took an extra week to arrive. Besides the timing, it is perfect.
Silky smooth and really fast cube. Great corner cutting and no ‘stickiness’ when finishing a move. Much better than MoYu. No need to open up and loosen springs like others. Not for beginners who would need a more rigid cube.
