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.

I got my cube from Walmart but it's the same thing as thins product. The puzzle is fast and loud. The color scheme is odd because there is no white but instead a purple and it originally came as orange opposite to yellow, red opposite to purple and blue and green opposite to each other. It is easy to disassemble but you don't need to disassemble it to change the color scheme. It's made of tiles that can be removed. This is a really fun cube to solve because you can only turn the middle layer 90 degrees while turning the outer layer by 180 degrees otherwise the centers wont let you to turn the cube.
Overall this is a great cube and is 18 dollars at Walmart and 36 at the Cubicle but we all know the Cubicle ensures that theirs is higher quality.
You can get the gear ball at target for 17 dollars and I compared the MEFFERT'S GEAR BALL and the one at target you can notice a difference. But overall a great gear cube.
The Gear Ball is clearly the best turning gear puzzle. While puzzles like the gear cube can be slow and even a little stiff, the gear Ball turns incredibly smooth. I didn't even set it up at all; however, it is extremely broken in. This is because I have played with it SO much! It is harder than the gear cube but it is still very easy. I recommend this to anybody. Whether you are new to Cubing or not. Drew Brads used a gear ball at Nationals during 3x3 finals, so it's not just me. GET IT
The best Gear puzzle ever! I have it, It has a purple colour side instead of white (inside), but still great! It's way better than a normal gear cube! ITS THE BEST!!!!
This is the smoothest gear puzzle. Effortless turning makes it quite pleasant to solve. I would recommend this to anyone. It is very short and easy to solve but I could play with this for hours without getting bored.
Fun addition to the collection and easy cube to solve! It is so interesting how to gear make the whole slice turn. Its not to easy that you shouldn't get it but overall great puzzle to get. A little expensive though.
In my opinion, the cube is mediocre; It has an ok turning speed and very tight tension level.
Even though I got this at Target instead of here, I could easily tell that it was the same exact thing. The puzzle is very smooth and controllable. Even without any lube, I still have a lot of easy solves that I got from this amazing puzzle.
I love solving this cube. Fast, smooth, and controllable. I have beaten the previous world record (although it was not recorded) of 9 seconds, with a 4.67 second solve that I got a few weeks after getting this cube. I have tensioned it, and tried to lube it, although the lube I used wasn't very effective, it didn't really need it anyway. Overall, very good, and maybe it could be a WCA event??
Wow! I'm going to start off by saying that this cube is by FAR THE BEST cube that Mefferts has mass produced. It's super smooth, and out of the box it's amazing. I'm highly impressed with the quality of the cube. Oskar did a great job designing this. I have mine in black, because in my opinion it looks better(and I can't solve in white lol) The only negative thing I will say is that it is a bit pricey. Overall, this puzzle blew my mind, and is one of my favorite puzzles in my collection.
