Good cube. Not great.
I cant complain. Its a cool puzzle, original in its style and offers a unique challenge in its own right. Its no different than the standard 3x3x3 rubiks cube in its solution methodology. The challenge comes from recognizing the position and orientation of the blocks based on size and orientation of the relative dimensions rather than by the relative orientation of colors. In truth, its a waste of money for anyone wanting a genuine challenge over the standard 3x3x3. That said, there are stickers and they do wear. Also this is definitely not a speed cube. Its sturdy and I never worry about blocks popping out, and it doesnt have excessive friction either... its smooth but not "speedy". What slows you down is not the friction between the blocks but the blocks themselves getting in the way - when its scrambled its a non-cubic shape and therefore blocks play interference unless you align it well. I suspect this is probably one of the better mirror-style cubes on the market.

Great cube with an even better price.
Great cube for its price. A very challenging cube for people who want to take it a step past the 3x3. Its very smooth and fast for its shape. stickers don't peel and it looks great as a decorative item as well as a cube. A very good solid cube for its price. I would recommend for any cuber looking for a little more of a challenge.

I love this thing
I love this thing! It was an amazing puzzle but not too difficult, and the build quality is quite nice. Hard dropped on concrete on accident and nothing went wrong. It is stickered, but that is not as important as a rubix cube since there aren't any colors. If you can't figure it out, worst case scenario you have something that looks cool to sit on your desk.

Came in pieces. Was able to reassemble it and it was ok for a short time before exploding. I don't think I'll be able to use this one. Now it sits on the shelf with the other cubes.

This is fun. It's not a speed cube so you have to slow down or it sticks a little. My son was on a Rubik's Cube kick so I got him this. It was very frustrating for about an hour until he realized it's really just like any other cube except instead of colors to match up, it's sizes you match up. After that, he can solve it easily to the amazement of his friends. It's fun to have.

Fun puzzle, looks amazing!
The turning on this is surprisingly good! and I don't mean that in a bad way, shengshou makes great quality puzzles. The turning is blocky and hard to control at first, but thats pretty much expected from this kind of puzzle. I had only a single pop, and i noticed the piece did not have a torpedo, but apparently it wasn't needed because it hasn't popped since. Great cube, fun to solve, even though fairly easy, and it looks very impressive to onlookers! The aesthetic quality is also very impressive. the brushed texture of the stickers and the metallic sheen, combined with a modern art look while scrambled makes for a very very attractive puzzle.

the cubes look like a guhong
The cube turns amazingly well. I got it at the tightest tension and its still smooth.Its not over-lubricated but just enough to make it smooth. no pops, some lockups, but thats because i have the tension too high. It also corner cuts about half a cubie with the proper tensioning. the cubes look like a guhong. One thing I don't like is the creeking of the spring, but nonetheless that shouldn't stop you from buying this cube. Easily said, shengshou makes the best mirror cube.
As far as the store though, customer service is scripted and awful, not to mention not understandable english. The tracking number was not given until prompted. The delivery was late. Every aspect from the point after I bought it was just bad. But at least I got an amazing cube now. It's not that bad if you have the patience to wait and wait and wait...

Best Mirror Cube
Best Mirror Cube! I've been playing with it so much now! It's really great, as it's not that difficult since it's exactly like a normal 3x3. It has an amazing structure and it's awesome since it hasn't even popped on me yet! It's turning speed is amazing, doesn't really corner cut but that's alright, and the instructions aren't.. really that detailed. But that's alright. This is a really great cube. Recommended.

An imprescindible 3x3x3 cube modification
No Rubik's cube collection is complete without one of these. It is a great puzzle, it can be solved exactly the same way you would solve a normal Rubik's cube, but it can be a little bit challenging even if you know how to solve a normal Rubik's cube, because having to look out for shapes instead of colors can really slow you down, and also the centers have orientation, so if you're a perfectionist, you'll want to have those centers correctly oriented. It's also really interesting and attractive to look at because of the strange shapes it can take when it is scrambled. It turns really smooth and fast, which you wouldn't expect because of how intimidating it looks once you scramble it a little bit. And all for less than 4$? It's a no-brainer purchase.

The motion can be a little stiff at times and occasionally you can hear the springs inside clinging, but overall it is well made and moves smooth enough.
