    I think this question has already been answered in these forums (search first, then ask) but I'll answer the question anyway.

    DIY cubes from www.cube4you.com come in 3 different kinds
    Type a = best DIY Cube
    type b = Worst DIY cube, sometimes worse than store brand
    Type c= decent DIY Cube

    White, Green, and Transparent DIY cubes turn the best....

    Assembly cube I don't know.. it says it's the classic rubik's cube? Isn't that studio? I don't know

    So not knowing what the assembly cube does, this cube is the best to buy.

    Thanks for your help everyone. Sorry I posted this in the wrong section :eek:.

    How much difference is there between black and white grade (a)? I prefer the look of the black cubes because they look like original rubik's cubes, and people can relate to those better.

    white turns better imo.
    yes they look like normal rubiks cubes and people say recognition is easier but i got used to white so i see no difference with recognition
    people say the white plastic is better than black

    don't buy from c4y.

    get a type d from 9spuzzles with an old type a core.

    and doesn't this belong in the hardware area?

    I disagree, I love type Cs. It's more of a matter of personal preference I think.

    1. Old thread is OLD.
    2. Questions asked in this thread (which belongs in the hardware forum) have been answered in the hardware forum.
    3. cube4you and 9spuzzles sell the same stuff.
    4. Rubik's DIY is made by Rubik's. Type X where X is a letter between A and F is the designation used by the Chinese DIY sellers to differentiate between cubes made by different Chinese companies.
    5. Seriously, check the discussions and stickies in the Hardware forum before posting questions like this.
