GAN 356 M
The GAN 356 M is a modern, mid-range magnetic 3x3 speed cube by popular manufacturer GAN. This version comes with GAN’s unique hand adjustable Numerical IPG Core and a set of spare GES nuts. Out of the box, the GAN 356 M has a fast, stable feel that is very reminiscent of a mix between the GAN XS and GAN X V2, two of GAN's most famous flagships. The GAN 356 M checks off all the needs speedcubers have for a nice magnetic 3x3, and makes a good cube of choice for cubers who like GAN engineering with a side of simplicity.
GAN also released a "Lite" version of this cube, with no additional spare GES nuts.

Its been a bit since ive gotten a new cube. My previous main was a gts2 m, so needless to say it was about time. Although the gan's frosted finish was slipery and i didnt like it at first, it didnt take to long for it to grip-up. Now with the grip, great corner cutting, and the smooth turning...i must say im very pleased. Its quite the upgrade. Thanks
This cube is just the Gan 356X (or X v2) without interchangeable magnets (I believe they are medium) and with an updated GES that uses the same plastic core that the XS has (called the Digital GES). It has 2 distance settings instead of 3 in the original X (the X v2 uses the new dual adjustment system).
The piece design is exactly the same as the Gan X (and X v2) but although the magnets seem changeable, they are not (they are glued into place)
So if you want a Gan X but you are on a budget, go for this.
Have a good day.
I can’t say much because my only other 3x3 is an old meilong that has rusty springs 😂 but it is awesome 😎 I got my pb of 9.22 on this cube!
is the best cube that i ever owned
And even though I knew it was a professional I didn't expect it to be so good

I am a new cuber and bought a Celeritas 356 M as my second cube. My first is a Valk 3 M. Considering how close they are in price, the 356 M seems like a stellar value. In hand it just feels much more substantial and works far more smoothly (though obviously I understand that it's not totally fair comparing a stock cube with a Celeritas-lubed, tuned cube). I am very happy with it. I have a couple of other cubes on the way (a GTS 3 and RS3 2020), and look forward to comparing them, but thus far I am delighted with the 356 M.

Very nice cube, was my pb renewer
I received this cube about 2 weeks ago after watching a video on it and hearing great reviews. I must say, this cube is performing beyond my expectations!! Not only is it fast and light, but it is also very stable! The magnets are perfect and the stock springs are also a great choice but if you prefer a different spring compression, other options are available in the package. Overall, great cube!!
Theres good things and bad things about this cube.
I got this cube when I was a beginner cuber and averaging 40 seconds back in april and it has helped me get an average of 20 seconds and a pb of 12 seconds. It feels nice and the GES nuts really came in handy because the blue nuts were too loose for me so I used the yellow nuts to the 0.8 setting. The magnet strength is really good too and corner cutting is great.
I don't like this cube a lot though. Back then I was a "cuber" who knew nothing about cubing and thought gan was the only good brand, but I was very wrong. The cube flexes and isn't as stable as I would like it to be even with the yellow ges, and the honeycomb pattern is nice but annoying to clean since dust and gunk get into the lines. There's better options that are cheaper than this. I would recommend getting a cheaper (and maybe better cube)like a Valk 3 M or a YJ MGC Elite if you want a cube that has customizability, or the RS3 M 2020 if you are on a tighter budget. If you just want a GAN cube that has magnets then get this I guess.
TL;DR Great corner cutting, good magnetic strength, GES Nuts are necessary, a bit too flexible, annoying honeycomb pattern, better options cheaper than this.
