    I've never heard anyone sells Dian Sheng cubes in other countries beside Philippines, so I think (But I'm not sure) that most Dian Sheng cubes are sold inside the Philippines. There are different colors of DS cubes though, but the most popular is white.

    They do very good, actually about 60% as good as type A's do, only that it's noisier, has less tolerance in cutting corners, and as usual, stickers peel off, but in DS cube stickers they peel even after you can finish a Jnet session lol.

    Say what? DS cubes can have their screws adjusted, like a freaking DIY.

    Btw, their screws look like the ones on type D C4Y DIYs.

    From my experience, DS cubes are almost identical in performance to the Rubik's speedcubing kit II (sold in Robinson's Toys'R'Us for P899).

    IMO, they can do everything a DIY can do, even better. But you should try it for yourself.

    And check out the "V-notches" under the center pieces. Not something other DIYs have. The notches also help keep edge pieces in place, and they make that "crunchy noise", which IMO is nice.

    You can get them from most marketplaces, especially around Metro Manila. Don't know if there are still as many vendors selling it as they used to though.. you might have a tough time getting one.
