Excellent Build Quality. Be careful of cheaper cubes here on DX...I bought a cheapy and it broke within 10 turns!! This one is great. Make sure to build it correctly and make the correct opposing colors like the original (The picture is wrong... Blue opposes green, white opposes yellow, and red opposes orange). This is important for sanity (similar colors don't show on tiles of the same piece... and for learning as you want color scheme that matches the original Rubik's).
No instructions at all... But not too hard, just make sure to get colors right so it matches original Rubiks
Make sure to put together the semi-square black tiles first...but leave the totally square black tiles for last (so you can adjust screw tightness after it is assembled. )
Also, complete instructions would be nice (there are NO instructions). However, mainly the only things to remember are the semi-square tile get attached first, then assemble (which should be screw-washer-spring-washer-plastic square...then screw into the white '+' )...next tighten as desired and cover screw-holes with square tiles. Last apply sticker with correct opposing colors..Blue v. Green, White v. Yellow, Red v. Orange).
Note: Don't leaves screws loose to have a fast moving cube...it is better to tighten them so cube moves firmly and apply petroleum jelly to internals for faster cubing.
Just as good as (if not better than) the original rubiks cube. Do it yourself kit takes about 30 minutes to put together if you take your time to line up the stickers cleanly/squarely. Extra stickers is a nice bonus as they will get torn up over time.
