    Does what it should !

    posted by stephil on 03/06/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Got an old KVM Switch to use the same keyboard, mouse and screen for 4 computers and as it is old it has PS2 ports for mouse and keyboard. With this adapter, I can now use computers with only USB port and no PS2 plugs (as most of the computers nowadays !). ...
    Cons:
    Not really a cons, but must be careful: each plug is dedicated to one specific device (keyboard OR mouse). If you use the wrong...

    A very good patterned cube

    posted by stephil on 01/20/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It's a very high quality cube. Before lubrication, it was turning extremely well. After lubrication, you can almost use it for speedsolving ! The pattern makes solving more difficult (and more interesting). All centers must be with the right orientation, ex...
    Cons:
    Nothing to say against this cube. It's just fine ! At first, found the price a little bit high, because I wasn't expecting such...

    A good corner-turning MF8 starminx

    posted by stephil on 01/20/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very good quality puzzle. A little bigger than I imagined, but not too big either. Bright stickers with easily distinguishable colors.
    Cons:
    A little hard to turn at the beginning. Combined with the fact that it's a corner turning, one may hurt his fingers on it. But ...

    Good colorfull puzzle

    posted by stephil on 01/20/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Good quality, easy to solve puzzle with nice bright colors. Seems solid, my son played with it a few times without breaking it or damaging the inner sponge. All colors are easy to recognize to put all the balls back to their places.
    Cons:
    This puzzle doesn't use any internal mechanism. A simple sponge is used to act as a spring to push back the color balls into th...

    Hours of fun for cube fans

    posted by stephil on 01/19/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Another great cube. It's fully functionnal. It's harder than 3x3x3 : all the sides can turn either around the normal center but also when the midle layer is turn 1/8. It's shape-shifting and during solving, you may return to the cubic shape, but with center...
    Cons:
    It's a good quality cube, but due to the mechanism, it does not cut-corners in every cases: you'll have to align the middle lay...

    The best price for a good 2x2x3

    posted by stephil on 01/19/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It's fully functional. It's very cheap, especially compared to other brands or other places where you could find 2x2x3 cuboids. Good quality stickers for the moment (haven't played a lot with this cube by now), good rotation.
    Cons:
    Compared to a Gentosha 2x2x3, the colors aren't exactly the same, but they are very close. Not really a cons, yellow is a littl...

    Only for collectors

    posted by stephil on 12/02/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    If you collect cubes, this one is definitively one to have : an edge only void cube. The one I got looks better than the picture on the DX site. Quality of the product is good apart from the fact it's almost impossible to turn. I Lubbed it today, Hope it wi...
    Cons:
    Extremely hard to turn. Plus you'll probably hurt your fingers when you will manage to turn it. This is not linked with the lac...

    Great fun & great difficulty

    posted by stephil on 12/01/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very well turning mechanism. DX delivered it quickly too. This pyramidal "cube" is very challenging to solve. Hours of fun (or headache !) with it !
    Cons:
    A very light-weight product. Could appear as "cheap" quality but it's not. Played a while with it and never popped. I...
