The MF8 2x3x4 is a fully-functional irregular cuboid in that no two sides have the same number of cubies. It turns smoothly out of the box and features solid construction.
Update: As of 20 Dec 2014, the MF8 2x3x4 is fully functional out of the box. It no longer requires extra internal parts to be installed to make it fully functional. Therefore, we won't be including the extra internal parts anymore.

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 2x3x4 is a shapeshifting brick cuboid puzzle.
The turning is worse than I expected. The puzzle doesn't feel very "stable": I'm unable to use fingertricks effectively on the puzzle, and the two outer layers (1x2x3 faces) are much looser than the one middle layer (turning a 2x2x3 block). I did try slightly tightening some tensions, but that made the puzzle feel as though it was going to grind itself to dust at its core, or explode from an internal lock-up. I loosened the tensions again after that. Fortunately, the puzzle has never popped or exploded for me.
The solve itself is fairly interesting if you never solved a fully-functional brick cuboid puzzle before, but it's a small puzzle, so there's not as much challenge to it as a larger cuboid, and the solve ends fairly quickly.
The fairly minimal paper box the puzzle comes in is quite pretty, and makes me relate the puzzle to a deck of cards when it comes to its portability.
In summary, I would only recommend this puzzle to collectors, and anyone enthusiastic about smaller cuboid puzzles who does not mind mediocre turning quality.
Puzzles arrived very quickly, and are the quality as expected. Thank you
Stopped turning along one of the axes on my very first solve attempt, then little pieces started rattling out of the core, and eventually the bigger pieces came loose. There are a lot of tiny pieces and I’m not sure how to even go about reassembling them.
Reassembly might be a fun challenge for some, but it was not what I signed up for!
If you try to turn this thing like a speedcube you're setting yourself up for failure. It's remarkably stable, and when it catches you can usually carefully persuade it to do what you need it to, assuming you have the updated version that doesn't internally bandage. Catches have become less and less frequent as I've done more solves, leading me to believe the culprit may have just been a bit of plastic flash that needed to be worn down. Overall, it's a fantastic solve that manages to be more difficult than most other puzzles its size. I highly recommend it as your first really challenging cuboid, after you've mastered the 3x3x4.
The turning is smooth and it's fairly fun to solve but be very careful turning it to avoid popping and misalignment of internal layers because this thing is a pain to reassemble and there are lots of small parts.
It is a well-lubricated, compact, and unique cuboid. However, internal pieces easily catch each other and even lock up the move sometime. It is a fun puzzle but should be handled carefully.
As I got the cube out of the box, it turned terrible. It was like the sides were refusing to move. After 30 seconds l, I was able to turn only three sides. I tried solving the cube, but suddenly exploded from so much force into the sides just for it to move. I could not put it together because of snapped pieces, and I feel totally cheated. Definitely do not recommend this puzzle. A total waste of 20 bucks!
I have used this brick for 3 months and it has NEVER popped, very solid. Not made for speed, but very sturdy. Pieces have never fallen out. Highly recommend. One of my favorite cubes. Small & fits in my pocket nicely because it is pretty flat. I really enjoy cuboids and bricks. This requires knowledge of cuboid algorithms and brick parity algorithm. I also love the 3x4x5 MF8 brick, but it is less stable. BUY BOTH :-)
So I got it with the internal pieces already installed. This puzzle turns well thee only thing is that it is a bit flimsy and does not corner cut that well. Also the cube locks up occasionally. This puzzle is not too difficult and pretty fun.
So I got this cube today, and it turns great.
However, it catches up so many!
I couldn't even solve it once, without taking the cube apart and aligning the hidden middle layer.
Overall, it turns great & corner cuts even better, but sometimes it just locks up.
