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 received this as a mystery puzzle which is why I give it 4 stars instead of 3, because I can’t complain too much. But overall it is a weird puzzle out of the box. There are some layers that catch like crazy while some turn smoothly and quickly. It’s a bit large but I understand the appeal of bigger big cubes. Overall I would suggest the MoFang 8x8 instead because it is smaller and much more consistent. (Also this cube comes with a TON of factory lube greasing up the outside.)
Perfect size and very easy to scramble. It came shrink-wrapped and already some lubrication on the surface out of the package and I was very happy with the way it turned and corner cut. This is where mosaics begin!
Feels nice to turn and doesn't lock up. Overall a very fun cube.
Super smooth turning after a few break-in turns. Colour scheme is really nice and contrasts well. Super stable and nicely sized
This was a TERRIBLE cube hard to turn and does no corner cut. Don't buy this
terrible cube, does not corner cut at all and
the inner layers barely turn
It's all sorts of lubey out of the box. It doesn't corner cut well and the inner layers catch very easily. It's a great puzzle for just solving, definitely not for speed.
OOTB I was not too happy with this cube. It was quite sandy in turning and a bit tight. I lubed it with DNM and Silk and loosened the screws about an eighth of a turn. It seems a lot more pleasant to turn now after about 5 solves. It's a little on the bigger end, so if you have small hands I'd recommend a smaller 8x8. I'd give this cube 4 stars but the only beef I have with it is it still catches/ locks up which is annoying when you're in the middle of an algo. I haven't tried any other 8x8s so I have nothing to compare it with but all in all, I'd say it's not a bad cube, but definitely not the best.
Smooth turning on all layers. Decent corner cutting (not an important factor). Quite fast to be speed solvable. Does not pop, or lock up. Add some Silk and Dnm-37 or Cosmic lube ( Lunar or Martian). Simple review nothing else. Get this or the CB (Cyclone Boys).
This big boy is a total upgrade to the Huanglong and MF8 and cyclone boys. At $31, it has all the great values a cube needs (except corner-cutting(you shouldn’t corner cut on big cubes, because it will lock up and pop)). The turning was smooth and very buttery out of the box. It has nice shades and the size is manageable. It is way faster and more controllable than the MF8 and it doesn’t lock up and pop as much as the MF8 making this speed solve able . If the 8x8 was a WCA event, I’m sure this cube would be a big choice for many speedsolvers. This is cube is totally underrated. Not a budget 8x8, the best premium 8x8. I wish Shengshou had made a Magnetic version of this for better quality. Overall I definitely would recommend this cube.
