I decided it would be useful if someone made a whole list of all the name-brand puzzles on popbuying, since it seems to have the best selection, and mysterious puzzles that don't seem too bad. I might also look at dealextreme, but not until after finishing popbuying.. If you have any links that you would like to be added, and know the brand name, that'd be great. Or, if you have any request to classify a puzzle, I'll try my best.

Yeah, I figured it would be nice to have a little acronym guide on them, then some convenient links, instead of seeing all these "Intelligent test cube" puzzles. If you notice, just about every puzzle has intelligent test cube in it. XD

Oh yeah, I forgot. Old and new work great, and it's easy to tell the difference between a New Type A III and an Old Type A III if you're just looking at the two titles. All of these SV and SP and sealed, and -F stuff is annoying. Why mess with the old, if the old work fine? It's like trying to make something perfect more perfect than it already is. I'm not saying this system is perfect, but it's good.

first facepalm is for misunderstanding that i meant. i said that there is only one type a V


the second facepalm is that the "OLD" and "NEW" names doesn't make sense at all. usually "NEW" reffers to "retooled" or "re-designed" verson, and "OLD" means "pre-retooled". when you have "retooled" it means that the old verson have been replaced by the new verson and the production for the old ones are discountinued.
however, the type A III and the sealed type A III are complete two differente models, and it's not even a different "verson".

plus, how'd you call the cube that you just got in an unboxing video? "here's my new new type A III"? or "heres my new old type A III"? so you'd need to add a seperate sentence to clarify this, and that means confusion which generally are reffered as "epic fail".
