Our Promise to You

All of our products are guaranteed to be free of defects, or we will replace and reship at no cost to you. Please contact us within 4 weeks (28 days) past the delivery date to report any issues with items you have purchased.

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.

The corners on 2x2 puzzles should not be twisted as doing so may snap the piece. Damage caused by corner twisting is not considered to be a defect.

YJ MGC 5x5

Gave me the strength to learn 5x5 after 5 years of putting it off. Would definitely recommend. 10/10 but my cat is strangely attracted to it in a sort of gravitational way. She usually walks sideways towards it, even if she's in another room. Sometimes she sticks to the wall closest to the cube.

The cube may be 10/10, but the cat is an easy 20.

This cube arrived with a miss-assembled corner piece, and The Cubicle was very helpful in dealing with that at no extra charge (video on how to disassemble; replacement part after they saw pics of the damaged internals; etc)…

My complaint is the excessive spring noise. They say such things go away with use, but not being a speedcubist (I make patterns and slow-solve to fall asleep sometimes), that may take years for me, lol… a drop of lube on the springs themselves (while tightening the puzzle a bit) helped slightly, but I still have to turn up my audiobook while working with this puzzle.
If it were not for the spring noise, this would easily be my favorite 5x5x5 (tho most I own are 20+ years old lol 🤷🏼‍♀️)…

One screw keeps coming out

The cube is really good until one of the screws keeps coming out. I don't know why its happening but the orange screw keeps coming out of the core so it keeps popping on one side.

broken again

it broke two days after getting it. after putting pieces back in, it is making spring clicking sound.

Thanks for your review! Big cubes can pop out of the box, but removing the center caps and tightening the screws should help. The spring noise that you hear is most likely coming from the centers as well, do adding heavy lube should get rid of the noise.

Great 5x5. turns really smoothly after little setup and proper tensioning.

This is my first 5x5 but the few that i have tried before the Mgc were barely able to turn whilst this one turns very nice. 10/10 for price to performance.

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.

the best 5x5 ever

this was a huge upgrade from my meilong non magnetic it is just amazing it is a bit too fast for me so it could probably use some slow lube like gravitas but im not good at setting up big cubes so i have an angstrom version thats coming in the mail soon but this is an amazing value like its only $22 and it preforms like a $50 dollar cube my only problem is that it pops and lock ups a lot but overall amazing cube i highly recommend

Great cube totally worth it

This cube is great for all people, totally worth the price and really good right out of the box.

This cube is very fast. It’s corner cutting is really good for a 5x5. It does pop a lot so I have to turn more carefully when I turn.
