This puzzle turns really well but it makes a lot of noise because it is very dry out of the box, but overall I would recommend
I love the 3x3x5! In fact, I've gotten two of them. I don't, however, love this 3x3x5. I've broken two of them.
This puzzle is one of the most fun puzzles I've played with, but it seems way too fragile. Hopefully one from a different brand will work better.
This was my first large cuboid, and it is a lot of fun to solve. It isn’t a speed cube so it was pretty stiff out of the box, but I was able to speed it up with some Maru. It pops occasionally, but the pieces aren’t too hard to put in. The shades are pretty nice, and the solving experience is a pleasure.
Let me start off by saying that the quality of this puzzle is no GAN 356 3x3. I am careful with this cube and never try to corner cut on it, so it has never popped on me. The puzzle turns easily and is actually pretty smooth, but it is not anything spectacular. This is probably due to the limitation of how a cuboid is built and designed. With that said, I have had this cube since 7/2016 and its one of the most enjoyable puzzles for me to solve because I like cuboids. I have over 20 different cubes. Consider that I'm not an expert solver, just a cubing enthusiast with a 0:45 sec 3x3 and a 4:00 4x4 time. The Calvin's 3x3x5 IS NOT a speed-solving cube. This is a great puzzle for someone that enjoys solving new cubes. I have WitEden cuboids, which I generally prefer, but this Calvin's 3x3x5 is a little faster/smoother and more enjoyable to solve. Overall a fun puzzle to solve and I would recommend this to everyone looking for a fun cuboid.
So I got this for 40 freaking dollars at Barnes and Nobles. But I was so excited for this, that I unboxed on my dads car. So I did a checkerboard pattern and the shades were cool. So I decided to do an easy scramble. On my 5th scramble ( still easy ) I turned it and a piece popped out. So I'm like, ok, this pops. So after I couldn't get the piece in. I waited to get home. And then I told my dad, can you fix this and he is like sure. So we got to work. And when we got the piece back in, it's popped right out. So I looked at the piece and the the freaking edge hook snapped. So I assembled it. Returned it and hated Calvins. I am considering to give calvins puzzle another chance though. Sorry for the long review but this puzzle Sucks don't get it.
The quality on the one that I got sucks. The corners are sharp because of excess plastic. Some of the corners have gaps that don't go away even if you push the pieces in. I could understand flash (excess plastic) on a few pieces but in this case, there was flash on nearly all the pieces. Another problem I had was that one of the longer ends felt less study than the other one, which could be due to loose tensions.
Short Version: Don't get this, it's not worth it.
I feel like for the amount you pay for, you should get something that is very high quality and stable, and this puzzle is neither of them. When I first got the puzzle, the edges of the puzzle were very sharp and the turning was okay but very catchy due to the fact that there's flash on every single piece so I had to cut and sand them off while setting the puzzle up with Traxxas 50k on the core and pieces. The center pieces of the middle layer were raised up higher than the other pieces and its center caps were a pain to take off considering there are no divots in the middle or in a corner of the center to make removing them easier. The corner stalks of the outer corners seem very suspect of breaking (and from I see from the other reviews, they have) so I super glued the three piece assembly to prevent that. When you turn the top two layers, you can see that the middle layer edges have a dip on the side of one half of the edge and this is on all of them. So all in all, this puzzle is low quality, but has a high price, which makes no sense to me. You're pretty much better off with the Cube4You version, or modding your own 3x3x5 if you want a proportional one.
It is my first cuboid and I really like it, because it has good turning and it shape-shifts. I've had some catches and lockups, but otherwise it's very good. I would recommend it to anyone who likes cuboids!
I got this cube and on the first day it popped. after that it was great! Than, it popped again. but that time it broke. i will be getting a new one soon.
THIS IS AMAZING. I have not done anything to this cube, tensions, lube etc'. i have broken it in a bit (only have it for 2 days) and it turns super fast, I had not had a single pop/snap, maybe that's because i don't speedsolve it or apply pressure on it. Anyways as my first cuboid i would recommend this to anyone getting into cuboids as this is a fun challenge, and it look VERY impressive to non cubers :). Overall a fun puzzle to solve and I would recommend this to everyone looking for a fun cuboid.
