The DaYan Gem 9 Cube is based on a void mechanism which means that turning isn't that great out of the box. Make sure all layers are aligned before attempting to make a turn. This one is not for beginners.
Comes with an extra set of stickers.

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.

After it’s 10 day (USPS) journey from Elmsford to Manhattan, this absolutely beautiful cube instantly dove into the Ziplock Cemetery. It now rests peacefully next to my CrazyBad 4x4x6, which at least had the courtesy to give me a couple solves. This one made it three turns.
I’ve (51) been cubing for 43 years, and after all the challenges that have come along the way, this cube taught me one of the most valuable lessons of them all: If a cube is not being sent out for unboxing videos, there’s probably a reason for that.
The cube itself looks great. It’s much smaller than I anticipated, which makes putting it together much harder. It does come with extra stickers as advertised. They even threw in a paper, some assembly required, cube stand.
Other than that, I can’t say much about it. As soon as I get it back together, I’ll re-sticker it, and never turn it again.
I agree with the review above been also doing this for almost 20 years and this puzzle took one turn and is in a zip lock bag. I can put things back together but it just isn’t a puzzle that even works in the slightest bit if I had had more time I would have returned it before to much time had passed. Great for looking at that’s about it. I would advise against getting this and go with something else
