I ordered a black and a white 60mm mini QJ 4x4 and a screw/spring 2x2 cube from popbuying.com .

Order date was Nov 24.

I have heard that the mini QJ's are a bit stiff. But I like cubes that way. And I want to see if the reports on the screw/spring 2x2 are true or not.

I agree! Especially with bigger cubes like 4x4x4 onwards, it makes the cube feel nice and the layers are easier to align.

On topic:
I made an order on popbuying a while ago (yesterday maybe? I can't remember...). A white type C kit, a transparent blue Maru and a white Maru.

Shipping from overseas to Australia is pretty fast, and we have a fast (as far I know) postal system. From China (like Mefferts or C4Y orders), it takes about 1-1.5 weeks to get here. From America (like Cubesmith orders) it takes about 2 weeks to get here. Hopefully orders from popbuying will be just as fast.

So dealperfect and popbuying are run by the same people, but are focalprice and dealextreme related?
I heard that dealextreme and dealperfect used to be the same company, but there was a split and they became two different shops.
Dealextreme and Focalprice are unrelated, as far as I know. Dealperfect and Popbuying were once just Dealperfect, but because of complications with their paypal account, they split into Dealperfect and Popbuying.

Yeh but that's not a mini QJ...

It's been 4 weeks now and my mini QJ 4x4 still hasn't came in.
^^ He seems sure it was a mini QJ he bought...

EDIT: It's just been confirmed to me that the one I linked IS a Mini QJ so I'll be ordering it now. :)

i don't really trust websites that don't specialise in one thing (popbuying).
if you were to buy it from popbuying you might aswell use ebay but i think popbuying is still okay cos i've heard good reviews so far...

but i buy my cubes from C4U and soon i'll get some cubesmiths stickers! =D

For what it's worth, I ordered 2 Maru 2x2's on Nov. 7th and received them on Nov. 22nd. They were both great, but during normal solving about a week later my brother's broke while he was solving it, and then same happened to me the next day. Not sure how much that really means but I figure I'd at least post and let you take from my experience what you will.
