    Mediocre turning mechanism and keychain

    posted by MrZain on 04/15/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Price is right for these items, 5 cubes for $3.58 means about 72 cents per cube which is nothing at all when considering free shipping. The build quality and turning mechanic is reasonable but not great. More effective as an aesthetic rather than functional...
    Cons:
    Turning mechanism needs work, some of the cubes have damaged stickers, some of the cube corners themselves are damaged. Not the...

    Smooth 4x4x4 - worth slightly higher price

    posted by MrZain on 04/15/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    A fantastic cube which is slightly more expensive than other variants but worth it. Looks a lot like the ShengShou and moves incredibly well straight from the box. Sticker quality is good, an overall great puzzle with a good mechanism.
    Cons:
    Instructions are in Chinese which is to be expected but there are many 4x4x4 tutorials available online.

    A modified 3x3x3

    posted by MrZain on 04/15/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    A wonderful little puzzle which modifies the standard 3x3x3 approach. Turns well, seems to be of reasonable quality and for 5 or so dollars it is a good buy I would recommend it.
    Cons:
    No real cons, I'm not tempted to lubricate it or modify it in any way. Turns are ok straight from the plastic but not as smooth...

    Very small in size, good metal though

    posted by MrZain on 03/28/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    A great set of smaller metal puzzles. I found the quality of the metal to be quite good, not likely to bend out of shape under normal pressure. You also cannot cheat this way
    Cons:
    Very small in size, quite irritating to a larger hand and leaves a metallic smell on fingers after playing with.

    Fantastic cube

    posted by MrZain on 03/28/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    A fantastic cube that is quite easy to solve but is made of a durable, fairly high quality plastic (not really many face defects). The rubber band keeping it together is of reasonable strength and with a bit of care will not give out.
    Cons:
    Not really any cons to the cube, it is the cheapest of the 3x3x3 snake cubes so I'm not sure if the wooden ones would feel better.

    A good buy for a watch trinket

    posted by MrZain on 03/14/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    The locket itself is nicely finished with a matte display for the bug's spots. The gold is not tarnished and rubs up nicely.
    Cons:
    The chain is fragile and I removed it immediately. I can see it breaking as the locket itself is not the lightest (combined wit...

    Quality sound instrument

    posted by MrZain on 03/12/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Fantastic sound quality even under stress (putting the volume up very high). Has a good bass kick and the melody sounds fine. Good for use with an mp3 player or mobile phone (speaker for calls is fine) or for use on a PC.
    Cons:
    The changeable ear lobes are difficult to take off and replace but once attached they do not fall off.
