Depends on several reviews
The real test would be if it was comparable to another new cube that had just 5 mins of tensioning and a touch of lube... would it be $20 better? I dunno, I'm not going to buy them to find out. Thankfully we can use our brains and realise that there is no magical lubing technique that is worth spending more than the cost of the cube to have performed.
Having said that, the stickers look nice, and sometimes I'd prefer to pay someone else to set the tensions for me... I'm just worried about peoples claims/expectations running off to fantasy land.

I just dont think youre giving enough credit where due, It's not 5 minutes of tensioning and a touch of lube, sure, I dont know that for certain but i definitely trust Cameron enough to believe its not. Its also not just the work that makes the cube worth it, If it feels better and is faster/better in any way for any reason than a lubix ZhanChi or any ZhanChi then a higher price is justified. Expectations can run off to fantasy land sure but if someone buys it and loves it and was happy to pay what they did, I dont see a problem with that
You just have to face the fact that untill he states what his lubing tecneques are, we can only presume it is a stock zanchi with some shock oil squirted at it. Putting stickers on and tentioning may take him a long time, but it's not skilled work. You could train anyone to do it. Unskilled jobs like that pay minimum wage, meaning, what, $7 labour?
I have been really happy with my OH zhan chi and zhan chi silk from cubicle for just over 20 each. Those were lubed, tensioned, and modded ....for less than half the original asking price
