What was your first speedcube? It has to be a speedcube that is a 3x3 and is not a Rubik's brand. I say this because a Rubik's brand is not really considered a speedcube by most cubers, and it should be a DIY (such as A-V, F-II, Dayan Guhong, etc.). My first speedcube (or atleast DIY) was this piece of junk C4Y Shengen or ShengShou cube.

Type A-II with the ridges. Would pop all over the place. What a waste of money.

My first "speed cube"* was a Type A-I. I never use it at all anymore because it pops too much and just doesn't feel that great.

*Why do you not consider Rubik's brand cubes to be speed cubes? There are Rubik's DIYs that people use and get respectable times with.

you're right, i should've rephrased that. I sorta meant a cube that was a DIY, but I have seen a few rubiks brands that are GODLY.
