Questions about V-Cube 5:

How much is shipping to USA?
How often does it pop?
What is the color scheme?
Would you reccommend me getting a V-Cube 5 or some other brand?

The v5 has a unique kind of "pop", it happens quite often for me when i first got it, and it took about 15 seconds to restore.
but after playing it for a while (2 months), i don't know if my accuracy increased or the cube improved, but it "pops" less and if it does, it takes less to restore.
the color scheme is yellow/white orange/red blue/green like the on you get on you're storebought cube. (on the white v5, the white side is black, on the black one, it stays white)
I recommend getting the white v5, IMO it doesnt get as loose as the black one. But it really depends on your personal preference.

V-Cube tension

Just wondering if there's a way to adjust the tension of V-Cube 5. There's screws under the centre caps, but they don't seem to do anything. I gave one ~10 turns and it didn't do anything (at least nothing noticeable).

Rivets. They don't have teeth like screws. They will never change the tension no matter how much you turn them.
