Why does my Guhong suck so much? I keep hearing all these great things about it? I lubed it and it is still not smooth at all and pops a lot.
Maybe you need to lube it with something like lubix or maru lube because CRC and jigaloo wont help it all that much also if it is popping then tighten the screws a little and it will be better.

First you need a language for describing the situation = names for the cases, that and the solutions you are looking for you may find in the wiki : [wiki]F2L[/wiki]

So what are the verdicts on the X-Cube 4x4? Is it worth the purchase or should I just stick with my Dayan+MF8 for now and upgrade when need be?

Please post your thoughts on the X-cube only if you have one or have used one speculation doesn't help me much here.
Thanks

Go to the video gallery and check out some reviews by me/Dan.

I absolutely love my xcube. It's my main. Dayan is very good so it's your call whether you wish to use the xcube instead.
Sadly, I've got dial-up so video reviews are a little out of the question for me as they take hours to load completely. Any other thoughts or scaled down text based reviews of the cube would be great though.

I'm quite curious, where do you live?
I had no idea people were still using dial-up in 2011.
O: !

@Ryan, I would say edges faster than 30 seconds.
Rural Virginia. We're actually right smack in the middle between Richmond and Williamsburg. We could get high speed internet, but it's about $50 more a month and like $300 just to run all the necessary cables etc. My roommate and I have decided to just save some cash and deal with it.

worth it. I havent even finished breaking it in, and i can already tell its gonna be wonderful. Not having to worry about core misalignment is a great feature.


Question about LingAo magic:
Is your lingao magic a lot smaller than a normal rubiks brand magic? I just got mine from lightake and I think they sent me the wrong one because it is a lot smaller

LOLOLOLOL I waited a month. just chill. li.
Hahah, alright! The site said 5-10 days for international shipping, not a month; that's all :p
Also I ordered something from that cube shop in NY a while back, which I think also used USPS, and it was on my doorstep in less than a week.
