Consider the 99p shop ones. They work in the same way!
Seems expensive when generic versions are around £1

Could never do this the first time round, but will buy one just for a trip down memory lane.

Good deal, voted hot.

Defo get the official ones. I remember when the Rubiks cube first came out, I had a cheapo one and it was crap. I begged for a genuine one for Christmas and it was far better built, it worked smoother and oozed quality.
Still couldn't solve it though :x

Can get good quality cheap ones from the works for 1.99 or as has been posted one from the poundshop, they all work the same especially for something thats going to be put in a drawer after a few days.

I agree with the previous comment that the original Rubik's cube was the best quality. I too had the original back in those childhood days. It was smoother, slicker and back in those days I could complete in about 2 minutes :thumbsup:. I'm a bit rusty nowadays and have cheapo one, it sticks and has popped open a few times. I can complete it still but I'd prefer the top model. Heat from me. I might just treat myself. :-D

If you're going to buy one, make sure it's an official like this one. The cheap fakes are harder to turn and get stuck/break more easily.
#8
No, No, NO !! the ones from the pound shops are rubbish, they fall to pieces in about a week.

The original rubiks cubes are much much better, the turning action allows you to solve much more speedily.

and for those who dont know how to solve it, theres this repository of information on such things called 'The Internet' where you can go to a 'Search Engine' ....theres one called 'Google' if you type in 'How do i solve a Rubiks cube' it will helpfully guide you on your way.

i found this one to be the best out there..

Voted hot.

If you know how to solve these and want to do it quickly, you NEED to have a high quality cube. Cheap ones get stuck, wear out, sometime even explode into pieces when you're mid way through solving it! A good cube feels fluid, forgiving, and lets you solve it much much faster. It also has the colours you expect on the appropriate faces which (for me at least) makes a surprising difference!

As other posters have pointed out, if it isn't going to get a lot of use or you're just learning a cheap one will probably do the trick just fine.

For what it's worth I used to be able to solve them consistently in less than a minute, 30 seconds on a good day! Pretty rusty now though :(

Dont believe it! This is quality goods, cheaper ones really are fragile
#11
I'm glad a few people agree with me then. If you want a good cube get this one. I'll last years! I wish I had my old one. I lost it in a house move.
#12
Thanks. Been after one of these for a while. :)

I can't solve them myself although watching others do it in ten seconds is interesting.

had several cheap ones and they were all rubbish build and quality .
#15
I got two in a pack for £1 from Poudland over a year ago. I have had no problems with them at all. I keep one at work and another at home.
#16
Get some silicone spray (tool station do it for £2), makes it so much easier to turn but needs a few days to dry.
Google it for more detailed instructions

This is the solution from the official Rubik's website and is very easy to follow - if you have the official coloured one, if you have a cheapy one then you will have to do some mind work
#18
Eeee... in my day (1982 I was 14), I used to take my cube apart (official one) and use either grease or vaseline to make it even slicker! Nice to know you can still get the quality ones. I wonder if I could still beat my mate at it...
#19
ahhh...the memories....used to be able to complete it in under 40 seconds when I were a nipper in the 80's...grey cells are not as fresh anymore so may take a lot longer....

Good price Hot deal.

Don't use vaseline, it warps the plastic. The silicon spray is recommended, I've been known to use veg oil in my time too.

Got into cubes last year, PB is 51 seconds with the layer method. My tip is that Rubiks official cubes are better than the cheapo ones, in fact some of the worlds top cubers use the official original cube. Most don't. But this is a great price for the original.

I don't like the locks you get on it when moving fast.

I use a white, sprung, diy cube from here:
http://www.cube4you.com

With these textured tiles:

Prices are a bit higher but they're the best.
#21
Used to take me 5-10 minutes to solve one, which is actually very slow.
#22
Going for less than half this on fleabay.
#23
Still got my original from christmas 1982 and its still never been done, one day......
#24
In the 1980s the original Rubik's brand cubes were very high quality. However, this is no longer the case. I bought my daughters a Rubik's cube each a few years ago, and I was disappointed with them.

On the other hand, the DIY (assemble it yourself) cube kits from cube4you are shockingly good. When I bought two last year, they were around the same price as this deal.

used to love this as a kid heat added

The real one is definately better then the poundshop ones - they break so easily especially if you're trying to complete it quickly. Still I remember when I used to complete it on one of the fake ones in under 1min 30secs :)
