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.

THE PROBLEM: The springs are very sharp and bite away at the center pieces. A few sides of the cube suddenly started making loud grinding noises, and that's because the spring's sharp end is scraping the plastic off the internals (see image below).
THE SOLUTION: rub the sharp ends of each spring on sandpaper (I used 220 grit) until the ends are rounded off and don't feel sharp anymore. It worked great for me.
Performance: cube is too tight out of the box and hard to turn. When loosened, the cube speeds up drastically and starts to corner cut well. It's stable, lightweight and has a reasonable magnet strength. I like it a lot.
Size: at 60mm, this 5x5 is about the same size as many 4x4 cubes, which is crazy. The compact size feels comfortable, but the outer layers are slim and sometimes hard to grip.
Overall, great value for $12. However, you must be willing to modify the springs to stop the cube from destroying itself internally. If not, look elsewhere (QiYi MS 5x5 may be a good option, but I've never tried it)
My son is happy with this cube.
So givin I had only tried a non magnetic 5x5 before, I was totally ready to get this cube. I could've gotten the MGC, but I wanted to see how well budget cube are, so I got this. First turns, it was a little rough. Some people who got this puzzle says that the edge of the screws are sharp and will grind away at the plastic of center pieces, but I have not experienced that. At least, not yet, but hopefully it will never happen. My old main broke, which was the Qiyi Qizhert 5x5 s, which wasn't that fast. Why did I try solving it underwater.
Anyways, get this cube.
out of the box, the cube reminded me a lot of the meilong 4 m because it was fast and swooshy, the tensions were perfect and corner-cutting was great.
whilst I was setting up the cube I noticed that the center lip of the cube was getting grinded by the bottom of the spring and little plastic chunks were coming off, this is most likely due to the springs being low quality with a rough end on the springs. some of the ways to fix this would be to either add a washer to the bottom, add some thick lube like weight 5, or what I recommend, lubicle black, sand down the end of the spring to smoothed it out, or all of the above.
i set up the pieces with a lot of lubicle 1 and quit a bit of silk and weight 5 in the inner layers to make 3x3 stage more enjoyable as the inner layers are being held together by both the magnets and thicker lube.
in conclusion, I think that this is a great 5x5 for its price but there is just 1 small problem with the core but there is an easy fix. overall this cube is great and I dropped my times by about 25 seconds.
I highly recommend this cube as long as if you are willing to fix the core
Okay, a lot of people reviewed and said that this cube wasn’t that great, but it is honestly the best budget magnetic 5x5!! (Honestly better than some non-budget 5x5’s) . I mean it’s a great size, it rarely locks up on me, the magnet strength is good, it’s extremely smooth, and it’s was fantastic right out of the box! I think it’s a great 5x5 for immediate cubers, beginners, and maybe pro cubers!! All around, it’s just a great cube for a great price! Ps: it doesn’t feel boxy, or and it feels nothing like the non-Magnetic 4x4 !!!
This cube is worth the price, but it is kind of small, and takes some getting used to. The magnet strength is really nice, and I got my first sub-2 minute solve on this. After lubing, I think it's very good. I think it can take on the Little Magic 5x5 M, and the Qiyi MS 5x5, and the YJ YuChuang v2 M. This cube is everything that the original Meilong 5x5 wasn't. Very good cube.
Good 5x5, worth the price, definitely recommended, CubeReview out.
really fast and smooth soo soft magnets dont feel them much best one under 15 $ if you add 10 $ you can get the mgc which is the best one and i dont like the size of the meilong at all
Currently the smallest, lightest and one of the lowest priced magnetic 5x5s in the market
Feels like holding a container of baby powder out of the box if that makes sense but that feeling went away after breaking in
Same color as the MoYu Meilong 2M, 4M and RS3 M 2020
1g lighter than the Meilong 4M
This is an amazing budget 5x5, I got this one bc my last one was nonmagnetic and was becoming very slow. whenever I got this one my pr dropped on the first solve by 32 seconds (I averaged 4 minutes before, now I average about 3:30) the second solve I did was my new pr at sub 3 minutes, so this is a very worth while cube
