I'm using only (DHL shipping method) and my orders gets to me in about six days.
I pay a few U$D more, to collect my order 10-15-30+ days earlier without any complication!
So far all my orders came in perfect condition.
Only disadvantage is.. limited range of goods.

To answer the quesitons, it was a woman who phoned me at like 10:30 on a Friday night. The English was a little rough (understandably) but I knew what she was saying.
I chose DHL 4-8 day with tracking number and it showed up in 5 business days. There was a small customs fee but that has nothing to do with the store. Living in Canada, there is often a small fee, even from American shops when getting parcels shipped with anything but USPS/CanadaPost. I see it as a convenience fee as UPS/DHL gets is to your door a lot quicker than the post office.
As for condition and packaging, everything was spot on. All cubes came in mint shape with boxes and contained the correct number of parts.
At first I was a little hesitant as I always am for ordering from new overseas cube shops, but these guys are legit.

Hooray for 4 new products on their store!
Meanwhile, They still don't know when will they have the Chun1 and the metal parts. I hope it's not phased-out or something.

Just to let everyone know...It seems like a lot of you are under the impression they don't have any of the chun2 metal parts needed for the cube in stock. I ordered one a few weeks ago and it came with the metal parts.

Nice! I'm wondering why do they always reply with:
'the factory not news yet, stay tuned. tks'
, like that. Haha, thanks for the heads-up!

My chun2 came with metal parts. I guess they were from the Chun1. On the website it says:
"Chun2's stainless steel sheet no production.At present is to use Chun1's.", witch means that chun2 isn't in production, but they are at the moment using the chun1 metal parts. :)

Video is done. :)

Worth pointing out that i'm not a fast solver, and the tensions isn't perfect. The corner cutting is a bit better than the video shows, and i'm using a pretty bad side in the video. Also, this cube doesn't pop much at all. I've done about 100 solves, and got pops about twice. :)

It's pretty perfect so it as good as no edge between the plastic and the metal, but the metal is just a tiny tiny bit over the plastic. And at some points, it's a bit higher tough.
Side Picture

Another thing worth mentioning is that when it corner cuts under 45, it's effortless. Takes almost no force at all. :)

Yea, it's pretty loud. :)

And i just played with the tensions, and it got alot of better. The problem is if it's too loose, it locks up alot more. So i made it tighter and now it's really good. :)

Is it any better than the Chun1? That was so bad I never even bothered to sticker it.

Back on topic, zcube.cn is a great store. My Panshi was shipped promptly, arrived quicker than I expected (HK post) and the packaging was great - a proper box with sturdy padding. No crappy jiffy bag torn and crushed en route, as with some other stores! Definitely another thumbs up for zcube.
