Zcube.vip
Super cheap, particularly as a VIP member (given to anyone who has spent more than ~$45 there) and with the discount code "sale". Significantly cheaper than CubeZZ in the long run if you buy a decent amount of cubes, and save up to buy several cubes at once instead of one at the time.

It's located in China while I'm in Europe, but it has been my shop of choice for the past 1.5 years now because of the prices.
Is shipping free?

I checked it out, shipping gets pretty pricey when you order more products on zcube.vip. I haven't ordered from them so I don't know for sure. So far cubezz and aliexpress look the best when it comes to shipping. Both also have great prices.

Shipping isn't free, but from my experience Zcube is still significantly cheaper than US stores that offer free shipping.

Shipping time depends on what type of shipping you pick, and the cheapest shipping option depends on the size of the order. It can vary depending on what cubes you orders, but it seems to be something like this: China Post estimates 20-60 days and is cheapest for small orders (1-3 cubes), ePacket estimates 10-30 days and is cheapest for medium orders (5-20) and the last (DHL) estimates 4-10 days and is cheapest for big orders. The two times I used ePacket it took 14 and 18 days, and DHL option took 8 days. This is to Europe though. Shipping time and price could vary to the US, but shouldn't be too different.

I placed a $55.50 order (including discounts and shipping) on Zcube earlier this year. Putting the exact same cubes in the Cart at CubeZZ results in $58.92. And a more recent order was $53.02 on Zcube but would have been $61.13 on CubeZZ (though that's partially because the MoYu Mat is crazy cheap at Zcube). Also Zcube is way cheaper if you want to buy a bunch of a single cube because of the bulk discount.

For 3x3:
Add mf3rs2 for the budget version because it is undeniable how that cube perfrom
I dont think you should recommend mojue when no one even sells it? It is better to list magnetised version of mf3rs2 and yuxin little magic


For 4x4: aosu gts2m can now compete with wuque m

same with 5x5 now there is aochuang gtsm. Max Park uses it so it should be considered as good http://instagr.am/p/Bo0wAwzBTFV/
For budget 6x6 I think yuxin little magic is way better than cyclone boys G6
I've added these to the recommendations.

For the budget 7x7 I would rather say the qiyi qixing. I have it and one of my friends has the MF7S. Both of us agree that the qixing is the better option and they are very close in price.

I use Qiyi Qidi 2x2 it is fine for me, but does occasionally lock up. I didn't get Qiyi Qidi S though, so I am fine with my Qidi. I can say some other great options can be a Qiyi Thunderclap but I am not completely sure though.

I think if you live in the indian subcontinent, those sites are hard to buy from and there is this website https://cubelelo.com, its pretty nice and ive been using it for some years. its probably the most premium site in this region.

I think Gan 356 X, though high in price, is debatebly the best 3x3 on the market. I think it should be expert category.

The Mojue 3x3 is not being sold anymore
We need a replacement.
Removed. The YJ MGC 3x3 was another recommendation for 3x3 Great so we will leave that.

I’ve tried the Qixing and it’s good.
Added it.

Can anyone else vouch for this site?

hey guys back from yet another hiatus, currently have a thunderclap v1, considering getting a Huanglong m as i historically liked faster cubes, but im currently pretty garbage, averaging around 25 seconds again and relearning the 20ish olls i've forgotten so I'm just wondering if it is worth the upgrade?
