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.

It's ok but the reverse comer cutting is not good so it keeps locking up if your looking for a budget 3x3 I rather get the RS3 M 2020

Great BUDGET 3x3.

Let me get his straight. This cube is not bad. The cube has a very unique feel.
It starts to get WAY too slow and sluggish. The magnets are very weak and the glue is pretty weak.
I dropped the cube and a magnet fell off.
Just get the RS3M 2020 instead.

Great Budget Cube!

This was my first ever speedcube, and it turned out to be a great starter cube. OOTB it was a bit tight for me, so I loosened it up and it felt great! This cube definitely benefits from simple lubes like silk and DNM, but they can only do so much for it. Like I said, this is a great starter cube, but there are many other cubes out there now (primarily the RS3M 2020) that are better than this one at the same price range.

None of the other cubes I have compare to the feel of this one. OOTB this cube also had a decent amount of spring noise that I had to take care of. Other than that, It is a very quiet cube.

My New Main

Out of the box, the cube turns smooth and effortless. The magnets are strong enough to do finger moves and it always lines up perfectly for the new move. The cubies also have a shape indention that fits nicely into a groove of the core so that the cube always lines up, which helps the magnets as a perfect pair. Corner cutting is great. I have not lubed this cubed and after 100 solves, it still performs amazingly. I transitioned from a beginner cube to this, which according to others would be a high-end intermediate cube. I was able to bring my PB from 1:14.454 down to 0:43.032 in about 5 weeks. This is a great cube to try out. Other reviewers are getting sub-10 solves on it, so I imagine that this cube will be perfect for me until I at least get sub-20 one day. The YJ MGC 3x3 matches great with my turning speed and mental processing. It's perfect and controllable for me.

Would not recommend

So i got this cube as my first ever speed cube at first it was great and stuff but afterwards it started to feel heavy even tough the cube isn't heavy but the turning feels really heavy. Has really bad corner cutting. The cube is also kind of loud. So it is definitely not a flagship cube and even if you are on a tight budget. I would suggest watching some reviews about other cubes

Good Cube -- Stickers Are Bad

My son received this cube, as a gift to his girlfriend. The sticker placement was odd (they were misplaced and misaligned), and not in the center of each piece. He's a fan of both your company, and this cube brand, but was a bit disappointed in the stickers, as this was a gift. The misplacement of the stickers likely occurred in the factory, rather than being a reflection upon The Cubicle.

He recommends this cube, but only if the purchasers also buy extra stickers -- in case other cube-stickers would also be misaligned.

This cube is good but there are blocking, his corner-cutting is good. For recap is a good cube.


I had this cube since it came out it was bad out of the box but after breaking in and some dnm 37 it became amazing

Good, but not my type of turning style.

Okay, this cube is very good. The magnets feel great and the internals are very soft. But this cube doesnt satisfy my turning style. Its about moderate speed and doesnt need much to any lube at all. I would recommend this to anyone who likes cubes that turn moderately fast.
