Please note that some new cubes when being used for the first few times may experience what is termed a "pop".

I'm not sure what my previous 5x5 was called, but it was a Yuxin stickerless model from around 2015. This cube is a nice upgrade from that. It has a similar smooth turning to the outer layers, good corner cutting on the outer layers, but with the added advantage of magnets to keep everything nice and stable. In a way I was reminded of a V-Cube when I first got it. You can do m turns in 3x3 stage easily. That's something I missed on my Yuxin. Obviously the turning and corner cutting are much nicer than a V-cube. I can't really compare it to anything else modern, but the price to performance seems incredible to me. I'm not a fast solver by any means, but I think the stability of this cube has really helped with consistency. I beat my pb by about 40 seconds within a few days, and I am consistently solving around 2:30. With my previous cube I was fluctuating between 3 and 4 minutes. The feeling of this cube certainly makes me want to practice more 5x5!
Turns very fast and smooth. Not too expensive.
I purchased this cube at its normal price, so I had the same expectations as everyone else. This cube preforms very nicely, it doesn't pop randomly when you solve it. For the purpose of high-speed cubing, it's very nice. If you turn extremely aggressively, it might pop a few pieces, but it's very stable overall. Corner cutting is pretty standard, it has a maximum of just past 1 piece, in both reverse and normal corner cutting. The greatest feature of this cube is its magnets. The magnets help to slow down the cube when turning outer layers. In the event of a pop, the magnets would help you to reassemble this cube. It is definitely worth the price, even without a discount code/sale. it's worth it. If you want a basic cube for a lower price, this isn't your go-to, but if you are looking for a very nice and premium feeling cube for a reasonable price, buy it. I would definitely recommend this to be used with DNM 37
Overall, this cube is great if you want a premium feeling 5x5 for a reasonable price, that performs well. If you want a very budget magnetic 5x5, consider something a little cheaper.
This is my first 5x5 and it's probably the nicest puzzle I own, the quality is awesome and makes me never want to put it down, absolutely no complaints
I am always late in getting this cube. The cube is perfect, but I still prefer my Valk 5 M because it came in stickered. I have many of this cube, but I never use it because it’s stickered.
Literally everything about this cube is amazing. When I first took it out of the box, it wasn’t slimy with lube which is always a plus. The turning feels really nice, and the magnets have the perfect strength to snap in place. The only bad experience I had with this cube is that it can lock up pretty easily when doing wide moves. Other than that, this cube is great, and would definitely recommend it!
Fantastic cube. Comes a little loose so there is minor popping, but after adjustments and lube it just flies man. Recommend.
YJ MGC 5x5
This cube is great and within a week already lowered my average from ~ 3 minutes to sub 2:15
the 4x4 and higher MGC line is considered one of the best in the market at the time. I can say that it's also my personal favourite, and worth every penny. The puzzles are spectacular off the box and get even better with lube and setup. The shades (black with stickers) look nice and are very easy to distinguish. The only drawback: if you force it too much on loose settings (we are talking 3x3 levels of forcing), it might pop.
