I like it

My first "real" 5 x 5. I was not let down. Now I can comfortably practice for competitions.

Great cube

Out of the box I was really happy with this cube for a 5x5. Really solid magnets and stability, and good turning once you work it in a bit. Can definitely use some lube but that’s to be expected. Really good for the price.

Popped Easily

The first few turns already had lock ups. I had to turn really slowly for it to not lockup, when I was doing an algorithm it popped. I tried to put it back, but it just mad it worse, and now the whole thing is in pieces. I would have liked this cube if it was more stable.

its real good

the corner cutting is great and it feels good and fast

Great turning cube, very fast and once lubricated gives a very smooth feel as well. Overall probably a 9/10. Magnet strength is also very good for my turning style(slightly aggresive and not very accurate). Would recommend this cube for sure

best 5x5 for its price

So smooth and stable

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!

Very nice 5x5

Turns very fast and smooth. Not too expensive.

YJ MGC 5X5 Review from Speed Cube Reviews

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.
