    Hey,
    I may would like to buy me the new V-Cube 3... but what do you think about the V-Cube 3? Is it a good cube for speedcubing? How is the cornercutting? is it better in pillowed or normal? Must I do modifikation? Do you have any reviews/oppinions/knowledge? Hoping for answers ^_^
    Greetings!

    Hey there,
    I've been borrowing a friend's unpillowed one for two weeks now, and personally, I'd recommend you to go with a Dayan Cube for 3x3 Speedsolving, they're just faster, smoother and the cornercutting is way better than on the V-cube, so go with a Guhong or a ZhanChi, you won't regret it.
    But if you really wan't to get one, get a pillowed one (for collection purposes :D ).

    Hope I could help, ct

    I tried V-cube 3 yesterday from my friend play it with my guhong over and over again i have the result that V cube 3 is decent but it 100 % worse than a guhong since guhong can glide more smoothly and cut corner better although V cube 3 is faster. I recommend guhong or dayan zhanchi :)

    The V-Cube 3 is good, but any Dayan cube (except perhaps the first) > V-Cube 3, IMO, which also happens to be the general consensus.

    I'd recommend one of the Dayans. Zhanchi is the most popular, but my personal favourite is the Lunhui.

    Yeah V-cube 3 will better than anything else if dayan never exist.

    I recently posted some reviews on both the V-cube 3 and 3b. I personally like my ZhanChi, but I still pull my V-cube out and play with it because it turns well and is fun to solve with. Hope this helps!
