I just learned over the weekend how to solve Rubick’s cube. An actual branded Rubick’s cube is nice but it’s very “crunchy” and locks up and binds up and is very tight, which makes for a slow solve (from my newbie experience). This is fine at first but as you attempt to solve the cube quicker and more efficiently it becomes troublesome. It’s like dial-up versus high-speed… you’ll experience the difference. This cube here came out of the gate (the box) speeding along like a champion! Buttery smooth (as they say) and swift as Tom. GREAT beginner cube. Good price; great cube; solid choice.
Very sweet cube. I will never again buy a cube without magnets.
Being a novice cuber (just solved my first time recently), I decided to pick this up as my 4th cube. I went from original Rubik’s brand (too hard to turn!) to “A Great Life” brand cubes (much too loose!), to this GAN cube with magnets. Being a novice here’s my opinion on pro’s con’s:Pros:*Easy to turn*Lightweight (I’m sure this thing is great for pro competition)*No stickers (my original rubiks had sticker-peel syndrome bad)*Nice contrast in colors*Display case + carry bag + color algorithim sheetCons:*Oily….holy cow, there’s no way to use this thing for the first few days without your hands covered in oil (I understand you’re supposed to oil it after every couple weeks of use…)*Lightweight (it feels super light, but being someone who has no interest for competitions, it wants to jump out of my hands at times)Final thoughts: If you’re looking for a cube because you’d like to practice and get better, or maybe impress someone, buy this cube, although it costs on average 3-6x MORE than a standard Rubik’s brand cube, you’ll find a much better experience, while you’re cleaning excess oil off your hands.
My son likes it very much.
I really like the product it had a good set of magnets And it was super fun to solve It’s probably one of my favorite cubes!
This cube is extremely loose and was inspected to ensure it was on the tightest settings. I am debating on sending this back. Not what I expected from GAN.
Love the feel of this cube and the flow of it in the beginning. Tension lacks retension not long into use which allows corner flip. If it wouldn’t do that and turn too lose it would be a 5 star cube
I know technically it is not a ‘Rubik’s’ cube but this is an amazing cube to use. The movements are swift and fluid. There is no catching and it has helped me improve my solve times no end. I am now under about 90 seconds. I do not think I will challenge the world record but it is a nice party trick!
This particular 3×3 is basically the Gan X but without the extra GES and interchangeable magnets. Its fast and floaty and it holds together quite nicely. The only complaint I have is the price. There are other flagship 3x3s that come in at a lower price point with the same or more features. If you really want a GAN cube though and you want one that is top of the line but can’t afford the higher price tag, then this or the GAN356 Air M are the ones to look at (the Air M is basically the XS without the changeable magnets).
Cube is super light and adjustable. It’s my favorite cube overall and favorite GAN cube.
I bought this for my son and he loves it. His other cube was just a Rubik’s brand cube (VERY SLOW) Now he can solve it in 40 seconds and he’s 9!! Its worth it BUY IT!!
Very light, very smooth, with enough customization options to make this uniquely perfect for you. I’d say it’s definitely an upgrade from the XS but not by a huge amount. The price tag is quite high and there are many excellent cubes for a fraction of the price (if the customization options aren’t a necessity I highly recommend the Gan 356 M Lite), but if you have the money and you want the absolute best this is the cube to get.
This is the best cube ever. I already got a new PB since getting it. I love this thing.
The best cube ever
The big question: is the Gan 11 m pro worth $65? And for me it’s without a doubt in my mind, yes! It’s the first time that a Gan cube lived up to our PB renewer? I averaged around 18 seconds before and after this cube, I decreased it to averaging 14 seconds! Spectacular performance from Gan.
Excellent cube with smooth turning and stable magnet feel! In short, I’m satisfied with it!
My delivery was missing the tools and adjustable setting components
Solid and super light. Just whar my 14 uear old was hoping for in shaving off seconds from his solveing. After a few solves and adjustments to his preferences, he’s down 20 seconds. Cool cube. I’m still shaking my head at spending so much for a cube… Worth it, if they are dedicated to it.
So, I am not a speed cuber and I would consider myself as a beginner to cubbing. I purchase another brand of cube which is very well known and I must say that this cube is awesome! It is so smooth. Its double the price of the Rubix cube BUT I highly recommend purchasing this one when starting to learn the cubing. Its frustrating already trying to learn the puzzle but if you don’t have to fight with the turning of the rubix cube pieces, the better. I wished my first purchase was this cube. It would have made my life easier and less frustrating.
The GAN 11m Pro is light, smooth as butter, and basically solves itself. Not too tight not too loose, with ability to customize.It鈥檚 expensive, but you get what you pay for.I chose the rubberized surface option, it is a hard material with a slightly rubbery feeling grip. Adds a small but nice amount of traction without being sticky.The cool refractive box is a great finishing touch.Second pic is everything in the box.
The media could not be loaded. This is a great cube. It turns very quick and smoothly. Comes with a nice storage bag. A little pricey, but my 9 year old enjoys solving it!
I like this cube a lot. Although, this is the “Lite” version which means it doesn’t come with additional tensioning widget things. I’d spring for the full version since I think I could use a little more tension than I can currently get, I just didn’t realize at the time of ordering that they were missing….Anyway, the cube is good.
Cannot buy a better cube than this one.
This cube is quiet, turns very smoothly, and the magnets are amazing. This cube, to me, is what I’ve been hoping for all my life. My first solve was in 1981 on a very hard to turn Rubik’s brand cube. Now, 40 years later, I’ve been buying today’s speed cubes of different brands. This is by far the best one. The feel is a nice matte finish. I’ve got another stickerless one that’s shiny, and it’s too slippery. For a while now, speed cubes have done a good job with corner cutting, but with the magnets in this cube, I’m not doing much corner cutting at all. The cube is just aligned after ever move. It feels like I’m cheating by using this cube. My times are getting better and I can’t imagine a smoother turning, faster cube.
Son thought it was the best gift!
This cube is awesome. I wish it came with an extra set of white edges and corners so I could use it in competition because this truly is a spectacular puzzle. I might even main it over my GAN11 M Pro!
We felt it was exactly as described. Again, great product, quality and all. 5 stars!
Best speed cube ever!!!! Smooth. Turns likeButter hahaha. Definitely recommend this. Even if you are a beginner. Hey, Im a sub 1 minute but Im improving!
Not worth it. It broke within an hour.Busted openWaste of money
I am in no way a Speed Cyber, nor do I plan on becoming one. I solved the Rubik’s about 50 years ago at a resort we used to go to for 25 years. They knew that I liked solving puzzles so every year they had new one for me, and I also brought new ones. I always solved them. Then they brought me a Rubik’s Cube. It took me over a week a half to solve it. I had no idea how I solved it, and I have never tried it since. A couple months ago I saw them in a store and desided to buy one. I started looking online to see how to solve them, which of course I couldn’t do 50 years ago. I started practicing and realised how clunky it was. I started looking at all the new speed Cubes on line, and thought that they would be a better option. I figured I’d buy one for 10 or 15 dollars. The more I read, the more I wanted a better one (why, who knows). In the end, I bought the GAN 11 M PRO. Now for my opinion of it, this thing has all the bells ands whistles you could possibly pack in that little Cube, of which so far I have changed none, but I am getting ready to. I am 75 years old and have some arthritis, I am able to do the turns and flips, Cut Corners and most of the moves without any problems. As I have heard from others and I agree, this thing almost solves itself. To make a long story short (oops to late) Final Opinion, this is the finest Cube I have ever used, and in my opinion the Finest one Out there Today. I feel it was worth every Penny. So for what ever that’s worth, that’s my story and I’m Sticking To It. 馃榿Update, I started doing some checking up on Rubik’s Cube and discovered that it came out in 1974 so it was probably about 45 years ago that I did it. It was pretty new on the market when I did it. I’ve made a couple of adjustments on my Gan 11 M PRO and it feels even better than when it came out of the box. If I was in my 20s now and had this Cube I would definitely be into Speed Cubing. This thing is amazing. Problem is my mind and my hands aren’t in that great of shape anymore, so am happy just getting it done in a couple of minutes. To get any Better than that I’d have to learn some fancier Algorithms. I don’t know if my brain or hands are up to that anymore. 馃ゴ Been doing a lot of reading on different knew cube reviews and even though I can’t speak for any of the other Cubes, I can say this thing is Amazing. 馃榾
I totally agree with Adog64, great product. Much better than a regular 356 M. I wish the tôles were printed out, instead of stickers …
Compared to my old 3x3s, this thing is amazing right out of the box, magnets are strong and very noticeable, also very surprised by its customizability.Package is also pretty
I’ve got at least 10 different Gan cubes including the current flagship cube the 11 M Pro, and this one (356 M Lite) is the best one straight out of the box.It’s tight enough to not easily deform but it’s not too tight. The magnets are strong without being too strong. It’s for me the Goldilocks Gan, it’s “just right”. I just bought a third one of these after giving away my first one to a kid/new cuber.For the price (a $30 Gan) it’s hard to beat. Especially considering the 11 M Pro is more than twice as much but (imo) isn’t so much better it’s worth twice the price.I really think the 356 XS has been their best cube, and this is the same cube but you can’t adjust the magnets. But that’s fine because the stock magnets in this cube are just fine and don’t need adjusting. And visually the yellow magnets against the black internals looks very cool.It’s a great cube. highly recommended to anyone interested in a Gan who doesn’t need all the extra tools and magnets and adjustment options.(also I’d recommend the DaYan Tengyun V2 M , which is another absolutely fantastic cube around the same price that is great right out of the box.)
Easy to turn, great color quality, amazing texture, smooth, but pricey
Super smooth, the magnets do their thing and allow you to practice smooth movements to cut your solve time.
Fell apart within 4 hours of regular use. It does go back together but also falls right back apart within a few turns.
Bad out of the box, tough to break in, but after it’s broken in and adjusted, it’s my favorite cube. Another con is the price. I suggest NOT using thin/fast lube because this cube works better with a controllable feel. the cube is already very fast anyways. I also recommend medium tensioning settings. If you are a beginner, buy a Little Magic M first to try out rubik’s cubes. If you really enjoy it, the Gan 11 M Pro is a great choice.
Was a big hit for nine year old boy at Christmas.
Very smooth. Pricy but worth it. High quality.
I ordered a new product and paid for a new product. It is quite clear that I got a product that was previously used by someone else. Unacceptable.
Its a pretty good cube out of the box. Don’t drop it too hard or the faces fall off. It does get jammed sometimes but a lot less than say an original or a Walmart cube. The magnets are barely noticeable. Its a 4 out of 5 cube for me.
This is my current favorite cube. I started with the original Hasbro Rubik’s, tried some random Chinese brand, and was happy for a while with a Valk cube. This one’s on a different level though—super smooth and so quiet. It’s nothing like the ratchety noise the Hasbro Rubik’s makes with every turn. If I were to compare the loudness of each cube, I would say the Hasbro is like an upstairs apartment neighbor wearing combat boots while skipping rope, and this cube is like an upstairs apartment neighbor in soft bunny slippers who is semi-bedridden. I might buy another as a backup cube. I’m no speedcuber by any means, just a Rubik’s enthusiast. Love the color contrast, the magnets, stickerless design, and the matte finish too. Didn’t care for the blue carrying pouch it came with.The tension is a little loose but I can live with that. The only other con was that the cube became quite “oily” out of the box because of all the lube that was factory-applied. I became a bit annoyed at the streaks and smudges it left on the matte surface and I was wiping maniacally until the oiliness subsided. But I still love how smooth and quiet it is. Might permanently park this on my desk at work but slightly worried it might magically disappear.
I am new to speed solving and I am honestly not fast at all and it’s more just fun t solve it. I am more like a 2min solver. But holy smokes this thing is NICE! It was hard finding the right one since there are a ton of reviews out there for all kinds of speed cubes. The magnetic part was new to me and I am SOOOO happy I went with it.The look, feel and sound of this cube is amazing and I highly recommend it.
Good product , very smooth , best cube
Lightweight and fast movement.
Sorry. Way too light for me. I’m not really understanding this focus on weight. Also, the cube is too loose. I read the instructions on how to adjust tension, but the tool is missing. It was no included in the box. Disappointed. Sending back to vendor. Please note: I am a beginner.
My son has gotten into cubing after some friends at school were into it. We progressed from gas station cubes to the $10 speed cubes, and as he got better we agreed that he needed something like this. It is very well constructed, the force to make a turn is very learnable and repeatable to make this a very fast cube. My son is 11, and has moved his solve time down 15 seconds just by using this cube.
Annual innovative progression
People that complain about the price are just jealous. This cube is buttery smooth and enables you to achieve your fastest times
Smooth but some reason doesn‘t really glide as i expected
It is what we expected. Even more – surprise box for storing. Kids are happy
Excellent Cube, fluid turning, customizable and good packaging.
I have a couple of these. I also have several other gan cubes and this one is by far the best. I like it more than the x and the new 11m pro. I like to try and use all my cubes and always find myself loving this one the most. Even after every set up possible with my other more customizable cubes, this one just keeps winning for me. Super smooth, quiet, and just an overall joy to turn.Hope this helps and happy cubing!
I was really hesitant to get this because of the price but I was curious why it was so beloved on YouTube so I coughed up the cash and was not disappointed. Once I watched a couple videos to get points and what all the settings did and some time with it I was able to dial in a comfortable combination. After adding some lube this thing is so comfortable in my hand. I do recommend but if you are on the fence I can say a cheaper one would easily suffice but it will not be near as comfortable. Also the case is pretty awesome. But 65 bucks (at time of purchase) is pretty crazy price for a Rubik’s cube, still glad i got it though!
The cube feels amazing, but get ready to empty your pockets.
If you just want to learn how to solve you can get a cheaper cube but if you are in need of a cube to use very often, then this is a good choice. It’s smooth and fast. This particular cube has mechanics on the inside that can be adjusted with a tool and different color springs which are not included.
I have used your product previously and been very happy.
Unfortunately this order has not arrived since Sept 9th last.
Please bring me up to date.
Super duper cube! Fastest cube I ever seen
If you want a cube that stays in alignment and is easy to solve at a very fast speed there is no better cube out there right now. Period.
Really like this cube , very fast but it locks up sometimes and it does not do very good corner cutting. And it is very very good for beginners. I recommend this cube.
I was so excited for this cube to come and very excited with it when I first got it. After 10 minutes of normal use it literally exploded in my hands. The pieces flew everywhere and kept falling off the cube. I heard many good things about this cube and was so shocked when this happened. I would not recommend. DO NOT BUY!
My 11 year old son wanted one to see if he could improve his time. Day one he solved it in under 18 seconds. His previous best time was 23 seconds. It moves so smooth.
El producto cumple lo que promete
perfect magnet strength
I only have 3 cubes, one other Gan but no cube comes close to this one. I know it’s a little expensive but you get what you pay for. I just love the ease of how it turns and never gets out of cube shape. The magnetic design is what sets this cube apart from all the others. If you want a perfect cube, this is it.
Cubes pieces comes out easily and not easy to put it back. It was really frustrating as everyday my son will come and ask to fix the cubes, finally its in trash..
My nephew was so excited to get this
I am still a novice and like many of us have purchased a small quiver of cubes. If you are starting to feel like you are getting faster do not shy away from this cube. I still have a hard time controlling a couple of my fast GAN speed cubes due to overturning. I wanted something that I could spin fast and still put a little more concentration in what I am doing without struggling to keep the cube square in my hands. The magnets are by no means overwhelming and you can still overturn your movements because the cube is so well designed and moves so smoothly, but a little extra help in snapping the cube in place allows me to learn my moves faster.
I’m a teacher that leaned how to solve the Rubrik’s Cube over Quarantine. I learned off the original model cube. Then, after quarantine, when I went back to the classroom, I learned that a lot of my students learned how to solve/ learning how to solve/ want to learn how to solve the cube. SO… yeah… of course, I started to teach how to solve the cube… during class time! LUL! At any rate, I thought I’d upgrade my cube to this one.WARNING: This is a fast cube! It took me a while to not keep slipping up and over turning things! But after I got the hang of it, I can now do pinky turns and multi-turns at the same time!My students love this cube! They constantly are playing with it! I’ve now started a group of students who do the 2×2, 3×3 and the pyramid. I only can do the 3×3. The students are teaching themselves!!!!Anyways, It’s starting to be the end of the school year and I’m creating a Cube Competition. I bought a bunch of other cubes as prizes (because of price) BUT I plan to buy a couple of these of as the “MAIN” prize and I have an engraver to etch into this to commemorate everything!THANKS for this cube!!! It’s great!!Thank you for this cube!!!
I guess I own an adjustable tension cube without any of the things needed to adjust tension. The instructions are obviously not for the model shipped as they show a process using a tool (not included) to adjust tension. After searching online for a way to adjust this cheaper version…there is isn’t a true tensioning system included, and it is way too light…regardless of how I adjust the very limited included parts.It’s not entirely clear if ordering more parts will work with this model to adjust properly or not. As the item arrived, I prefer to use my standard Rubiks Cube to this one.It really defeats the purpose of magnets if the tension is so loose it always overshoots every move….forcing you to not only perform each move…but also stop each one at exactly the right spot…or it will overshoot.If you are expecting an adjustable tension cube…look elsewhere.
This cube is good to start with beginners
It was nice but it broke within 2-3months my luck can’t return
Amazing cube! It’s really fast!
Didn’t have to lube it up
Flagship cube. (One of) the best.Not sure if the newer version GAN12 is better but 11m pro is still a solid choice at 2022.
Look! i get right to the point. If you don‘t know if you are going to stick to the hobby of solving this thing, get something cheaper. This thing is for the serious ladies, gents , and thems that will put the time and effort into enjoying its SUPERB, MASTERFUL build quality. I have been solving cubes for a little over 4 years now. I own every variant up to the professors cube (5×5). Not even my mirror cube, which I adjust and lube myself, is as smooth as this thing OUT THE BOX. LAWD FADDA JESUS this thing can crank accurate, precise turns that demand the least amount of effort in keeping the cube aligned thanks to the magnets (absolute pro gamer design, what demigods work for GAN I am not sure).Is it $30? Yeah man, but thats because you either buy it NICE or buy it TWICE. comes with a protective case and a carrying pouch, makes me feel like I am flying first class to Nerd Island. And I appreciate that. Because I am in fact, a massive nerd. This is the only cube I have ever buy. Hands down the best one I have ever picked up.
Best cube I’ve ever used!!! Its so satisfying just turning it! Glad I stepped up and bought the best cube!
My son loves his new rubic cube
The media could not be loaded. Amazing cube. Helped me get my speed A ton faster it feels amazing. Definitely worth the price! You You shouldn’t use this cube when you’re just learning to solve it though.
Love it, I am learning how to solve a cube as a beginner and figured I’ll spend few extra dollars for a better cube to better my experience. Totally worth it, it doesnt stick like those cheap dollar store cubes and it glides with a slight flick, no more jamming or forcing turns.
This product works great. My daughter was instantly able to take 20 seconds off her solve time and now is under 2 minutes. This device allows her to go past the limitations of others to get even better now.As the description says, there is no tool needed to adjust. The Included instructions refrence one, but it also says the tool is for other models. Just pop off the labeled center white piece and push and turn the lock screw with your fingers. Lock screw has three positions. Harder and softer turn, as well as release. If cube is falling apart it was probably used with the screw lock in the release position. If it is overly loose and pulls apart that is likely the issue.
I bought this cube a month ago, and the one thing that really stands out about it is its lightweight and easy manoeuvrability. It doesn’t take much effort at all to turn which allows you to go faster. The default setting for the magnets is strong but you can adjust it to your liking (I found sometimes 2 layers moved instead of just 1 when you have it strong, so I used a second finger as a fulcrum in some algs). I didn’t even use lube on it and its still very very fast. Would recommend this to anyone willing to put up $70
I bought this for my son. he just start getting interesting in the speed cube. I have bought all kinds of different smooth sticklesscube for him start from $3, to $15 ones. he said this one is the best among all cubes he have used. it is pricey, but you can deny the quality and performance of this cube.
Rubik’s is the original, GAN is making it better.
Bought this for my sons 8th birthday he loved it at first now 2 months later it broke apart and won’t go back together ..return window closed and now I have a sad kid and out of $70
This Rubik’s cube is awesome! If your looking for that feeling on it and you know which one I mean this is it! It’s so smooth and so nice! I think it’s worth just a bit less, maybe in the 50’s. It’s so fast as well. I learned how to solve a Rubik’s cube and right now I almost under a minute! This cube definitely helps with beating your own records. You can also adjust the cube! I love how it comes with a case for it! Overall great cube.
It is amazing. my boy like it very much.
Amazing cube. Very fast and very effortless to turn and incredible design for magnets and also incredible corner cutting.
My Last PB was about 31 seconds and with this amazing cube I got 24 seconds. I would definitely recommend this cube. The only tiny issue was that there was a tiny squeaking going on but Easily fixed it by lubricating the part where the tension system touches the cube
