I love this 4x4. it might be because this is my first 4x4 speedcube but i think its great for its price. The shades are nice and the magnets help a lot for me. The corner cutting is okay but i'm sure if you loosened it then it would be better. overall, its an amazing cube and I recommend it to anybody especially if they are starting 4x4 or want to get into 4x4.
