Please note that some new cubes when being used for the first few times may experience what is termed a "pop". This is when one or more parts of a puzzle pop out without any damage actually being done to any of the pieces. This also occurs from time to time during normal usage. Pops are typically not considered a defect if the parts which come off can be reassembled by hand.

This was my second purchase of an 11-cube. The 8-cubes and larger tend to feel a bit sloppy compared to the smaller cubes. The MFJS MeiLong has a tighter feel than my other 11-cube although you can't expect it to be as tight as smaller cubes. It’s also smaller and lighter. Because of these features, it’s possible to solve in the hand rather than requiring a flat surface on which to square it and rest its weight while turning. I’m no speed solver and this is no speed cube but in my first solve of this cube, I shaved about a third off my typical time. It popped once after about eight hours of play but I was able to put it right in a few minutes. I give it 5-stars because I exceeded my expectations for the money.
Let's start off from the beginning. When I unboxed it, it was really quite good. It turned fairly well, the packaging was well done, and overall it was a good first impression. It didn't corner cut though, but honestly, who goes and buys an 11x11 expecting the corner cutting to be good, so that's not what the lost star is for.
But now let's get into why I put 4 stars instead of 5. This is because this is not the best cube out there, particularly not the best 11x11 out there, and this is to be expected, because it's clearly not meant to be. When solving this cube you can't go super fast, or else it will lock up really bad. This cube is not a speedcube, so if you are trying to speedcube with an 11x11, this cube isn't for you. But, for casual solving it's amazing, it's nice and small so your hands fit nicely around it, it turns really quite good when you're not turning at the speed of light, and in general it's just nice to sit back and solve this cube.
But now for the main reason a lot of people will probably be buying this cube. At $92, it's got to be one of, if not the cheapest 11x11 out there. And for the price, this cube preforms outstandingly. No your turns per second is not going to be through the roof, but for $92, you are definitely getting what you pay for in an 11x11, and a little more.
A lot of the people giving this cube bad reviews are saying that the turning is really bad and that it exploded when they first got it. If this is the case, then they just weren't careful with their cube, but if you're careful with this cube then you should be fine. Take me for an example, this is an example of what not to do when you get your 11x11. I was walking up to my front door, and tried to open the door with my 11x11 in the same hand, big mistake. I ended up accidentally dropping the cube, and the cube shattered on my front porch. I don't know what I'm doing to do about my 11x11, but I'll figure it out, but I'm not taking stars off because that was my fault. I also did this with my MF9 a while back.
So if you're going to take anything from that story, please just be careful with it, especially when bringing it out in public, because this cube isn't meant to stand getting dropped, and let me tell you, don't test it, unless of course that's the reason you're buying this cube.
TL;DR (too long, didn't read), this cube is not for speedcubing by any means, and it will lock up and perhaps shatter if you try speedcubing with it, but if you're not looking to speedcube with it, and you're just looking for a good budget 11x11, this cube is for you. Coming at $92 you are definitely getting what you pay for, and perhaps a little more. If you do buy it, though, you have to be careful with it, never risk bringing it anywhere, try not to speedcube with it, and most importantly never drop it. Learn from a guy who dropped his 11x11 and it shattered.
Overall great cube, would recommend to anyone looking for an amazing budget 11x11.
This cube is phenomenal. It turns very smoothly, rarely locks up, has a really nice shiny finish, and is small enough to comfortably solve. It is a lot smaller than you might think. The 9x9 in the meilong line is a bit disappointing, but this thing is really good!
This cube is really good. Would recommend.
The biggest cube I had solved prior was the ShengShou 7x7, and this was the next step for me! You can turn one layer at a time with surprising ease (more than my 7x7 in fact). The bigger edges make no difference to handling it, and if anything it actually made solving the edges and 3x3 part easier, as the middle layers would rarely accidentally turn. In my first entire solving of it, I only had it lock up 3 times, all while solving the centers. Great cube!
I checked for the product on amazon and it wasn't there the other 11*11 on amazon were like 150$ and I couldn't afford that so I checked this one ordered it and it came faster than amazon prime. When I opened it first turns were GREAT and it was really fun to fiddle around with it and make mosaics with it overall it fits in my palm, its cheap and it never popped and they should make a 13x13 one and I'll buy it right away. I'm looking forward to buying the 12*12
An excellent cube overall. Out of all of my twisty puzzles (5x5, 7x7, 9x9 and a few Rubik's brands), this one is easily the best. The turning is really nice and smooth on every layer, the colour scheme is very practical and appealing and the size is pretty great for an 11x11. It locks up every now and then and pops every once in a while, but, honestly, the pros wayyyyy outweigh the cons. For the cheapest 11x11 on the market (that I know of), this is cube is awesome! I would definitely recommended this to anyone, whether a beginner or a speed solver or just a collector.
(P.S. I don't know what those other comments are about, maybe they got defects, unfortunate)
I had a bad experience with this cube. It was way too slow, and burst as soon as I used it.
I bought this having heard good things from people like CrazyBadCuber and others, and I can't say it disappoints!
The outer layers feel light and are easy to turn (so long the layers are aligned), but the inner layers are rather heavy, but not stiff, but that's to be expected. There's a little bit of forward corner cutting on the outer layers, but no reverse whatsoever, but it's not really like you're gonna need it anyway. The cube definitely needs to be aligned when you're turning it, which can be a bit annoying to do constantly, and I think that that is its biggest drawback. I think of you magnetized it, it would be amazing, but it's in no way a requirement. I also really like the color scheme and size, it fits well in your hand, considering its size, and I've always been a fan of the Moyu bright stickerless colors. The solve is also rather enjoyable and it looks amazing on a cube stand, especially in a cool pattern! I cannot recommend this cube enough to people who are in the market for big cubes!
I also don't know what those other 1 star reviews are on about, I haven't had any issues, but maybe they got some defect ones, which is a shame.
This puzzle is cheap and the only thing it has going for it over the Yuxin is the size. If you don't have small hands get the Yuxin. From the solved state this puzzle popped out a piece while I was simply turning the layers parallel to each other, wasn't even trying to do a checkerboard pattern. This puzzle is very unstable and even though I'm always carefull with my turning it still popped out and then because the pieces are so flimsy it broke when I tried to put it back. So after having the puzzle for less than 12 hours it is now completely useless.
