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.

This is absolute GARBAGE. Words can't even describe how bad this is. And I will describe it in 3 words: POPS, POPS, POPS!!! I'm TIRED of how many pops this this cube gets in a single day! (5-6) Turning is VERY slow and sluggish with extreme catching problems, and lock-ups are a NIGHTMARE! Every day me and my friend would try to assemble this cube, and not even after a few seconds of hard work, it would pop again. I have lost 3 internal pieces because of pops. Now this piece of junk is siting in pieces in a Ziploc bag on my desk. Would only recommend if u are a dummy and would want this garbage for some strange reason.
This cube, when I first got it, was very unstable. It would pop a lot, and even one day I was solving on this cube, and then just so suddenly, a piece flung out and it broke the plastic! I would have to say that is very weak plastic because on another day, I was reassembling the cube like always, and then when I was shoving the little tail in the little hole, the plastic just broke off!
This is not a good plastic quality cube. Get like the YLM. It’s a better 4x4.
It’s better than my other 4x4 (rubik’s brand, pops 24/7), but it locks up sometimes, the corner cutting is like 15° regular and 20° backwards. Os yeah I would recommend only if you’re on a budget and only have bad cubes or if you want to collect
This cube should get the popping award. whenever you try do a decently small cut, it will pop. Mine popped at school and bits of it went down the drain, aka where it belongs. I would recommend this version over the stickerless version because the frosted design is terrible. if you want a budget 4x4, get the meilong, its cheaper and is much better.
Still, better than a Rubik's Brand
This is a good puzzle if you are learning 4x4 but if you’re like me and you pop out the pieces it is a nightmare to reassemble. When I tried to pop out the pieces a mystery piece came out I later Learned that they played in important role in the stability of the cube.
The cube is designed very much for beginners which it does well. However, turning fast causes some lockups the only way to fix this is to turn slower. The other problem is pops. this is something that should be fixed if possible at the manufacturing end. These pops are very annoying and I lost a piece after a pop and this made the cube unusable would recommend something better like the Mr. M, Valk 4, GAN 460, Wuche, etc.
This cube is very easy to lock up, but I have used it for 3 months and it hasn't popped yet.
corner cutting is OK, once you get used to it.
The best time I got with this cube is 7 seconds, with a mix of beginner/Ortega method.
This is my first 4x4 so I don't have anything to compare it to. I can say though that you should probably tighten this cube because it always felt like it wanted to pop, I don't recall it happening because I tightened it so early on but it was always close to it. The cube definitely could turn much better, but it is $8 so I didn't expect much. It feels very dry with little or no lube with slow outer layers and much slower inner layers. This cube may be ok for a first 4x4 but I wouldn't recommend it all that much. It isn't that fun to solve on because it just doesn't turn well and has bad corner cutting. I want to get good at 4x4 but that just won't happen with this cube because of my lack of interest for solving on it. I hope this review was helpful!
pops a lot turn okay always feels like it will pop mine poped
and now the inner core will take me hours to assemble
