Hello! I am a new cuber. I can solve the 2x2 and 3x3 in 1 minute. Shortly (once sub 45) I want to buy a 4x4. I am aware of the controversy behind the V-Cube 4, but the V-Cube 4 Pillowed White is the cube that is leading my interest. Any input… Thanks!!

Moyu aosu all the way, there really isn't anything better. V cubes really suck, plus their business tactics can be considered snarky and demeaning. (They claim to hold the patent for all cubes larger than 5x5, and they sue everyone in sight. Not someone you want to do business with) If an Aosu is too expensive, get a shengshou 4x4, they're ridiculously cheap but they need some breaking in to be decent. But if you're willing to spend 17 bucks, get an Aosu.

Thanks will consider

V cubes are very bad. I know pillowed cubes look cool, but if you get a cubic one, like a Moyu Aosu or a Shengshou, you'll thank yourself. They're much, much better.

For future reference, there is a thread specifically for questions like this: the puzzle choice thread

I like your username. :)

i would suggest an aosu or weisu for starters...and more advanced cubers...but a shengshou or vcube pillowed would work. the not-pillowed v cube 4 is not as good as the pillowed

The Aosu is better but the v-cube is vastly underrated. I'd honestly put it directly behind the Weisu in quality. People just really hate V-cube for patent trolling and the high price. Then again I've only tried the pillowed version which is 1) not competition legal and 2) Superior to the flat legal version from what I hear.

No point in getting a WeiSu any more. The AoSu is just flat out better. It's not like in 3x3 either, where you don't give a beginner an AoLong because it's too fast. The AoSu is the best for beginners or advanced. If you get an AoSu, you won't regret it. :)
