I haven't really heard about the QJ Pillowed 3x3. I'd say to get the Mini Maru because you know you're getting a good cube, instead of a newer cube that would have varied opinions. It would probably be more available as well. The 'stickers' on the Maru aren't paint, they are stickers. You may be confused with the Diansheng or Mini Diansheng.

Pillowed QJ is way better, mini maru its just too small, and you can lose it very easily, just like I did; that little qj comes at a nice, still not that speedsolvable size..
and no, it has stickers, sort of crappy stickers.

The Rubik's brand or even any other mini cubes are uncomparable to the quality of Maru mini. It's hard to describe, but its turning quality is speedcubing-standards despite its size, and, if adjusted right, never pops with 1-square corner-cutting capability.

idk, if you are going for a small 3x3 you should decide between pillowed QJ, or alpha micro, both are nice small cubes.
but if youre going for any cube, try getting an official event cube, like sq-1 or megaminx.

problem is www.dealextreme.com doesnt label the cubes with the brand names
also their shipping is sometimes not too good, so i don't wont to spend too much money on them, maybe 10$ max?
just search iq on the site and ull see most cubes
