Please note that some new cubes when being used for the first few times may experience what is termed a "pop".

Pops are typically not considered a defect if the parts which come off can be reassembled by hand.

I put magnets in this cube and I didnt expect much. But, its awesome. The cube is very good normally but should have a magnetic option.

The Z Wave 3x3 is a nice cube to have for showing off to fellow cubers, but is absolutely not meant for speed solving/competitions. OOTB it was very smooth, but was very dry. It has a very nice look to it (making it an awesome desk ornament), but has such a shape that makes your hands constantly slip off of the pieces while trying to move them. Also, the corner pieces split very easily, so it makes it hard to maintain it's perfect shape. All in all, it is a very nice cube to complete collections, but is definitely not meant to be constantly used.
Personally, I think the Z Wave 3x3 is a very good 3x3 shape mod. Unlike some other shape mods that you can barely turn. Although this 3x3 is a shape mod, you can still speedsolve it. I think it's really cool, and if you are considering buying it, I really think you should.
It was really cool to have a 3x3 like this. But when I first turned it it was really dry. I’ve done a couple solves and it’s got a little better, but if I use lube it will be good

I got this cube just as a collectible since it looked interesting. I noticed it's a lot more shapeshifted than what it looks like in the picture, which was cool. I just put a bit of 30K and DNM in it and it turns ok. Make sure you tighten it a bit, as corner cutting is pretty frequent and it's just overall too loose. It's kind of hard to grip and do finger tricks on, but I'd suggest it for collectors.
When I first got the cube it felt a bit dry and was gritty. After I played with it for a bit, the grittiness was gone and it was much faster. I decided not to lube it right away and give it some time to see how it is without lube, and if I should use my lube on it. This cube is great for cubers who want a shapemod to solve easily and to buy for cheap.
I anticipated this cube not turning very well, but surprisingly it turns quite well. I over lubricated it a bit though (was good out of box) so it doesn't turn quite as well now. The corner cutting is really good, I didn't expect much at all, although since it is pretty much shaped like a normal cube I'm not surprised. The shape gives it a nice grip, except during a few algorithms when I tend to drop it a few times.

The mix of Ridges and bumps makes this feel really ergonomic and natural to hold.
The shades are nice; the darker blue and softer white makes it a lot easier to look at scrambled then the normal sticker-less shades on most puzzles, hope they release a stickered version so I can put my custom shades on, or I might have to get a whole set and force cube it.
Came in the box a bit to tight for me, but some loosening and silk fixed that. the centers and corner stalks are deep in the cube, and the edges have torpedoes sculpted in. Because all the pieces are internally curved it corner cuts over 45, although not to good at reverse, sometimes causing lockups and corner twists, but that only happens every 25 solves or so.
if it had anti friction, and could reverse, I would think it a 20$ puzzle, but for 6$ and the weird shape, I was expecting a slight improvement on the Z Concave, but the is WAY better.
