Shengshou Aurora 2x2
Out of the box, the Aurora 2x2 was smooth and bumpy. It came with the ugly shengshou shades we all know and hate and I have since replaced them with my preferred scheme. Most of us expected this to be a cube where it was average but had some potential to be a main for some. This was definitely not the case. Instead the cube had flaws in every direction and made it a real disappointment, especially for me. The corner cutting on this cube was a complete joke. It struggles to cut at half a piece normal while the reverse (ironically) felt the same as normal, at less than half a piece. The cube also was very unstable; making the cube very hard to control and execute algorithms. The last visual flaw is the "caps" on the 2x2. They seem to have no purpose and the stickers have a chance to chip as a result. Overall, this cube is a piece of trash. I would not recommend buying this cube at all. For this performance at a price point higher than budget 2x2s, it is not worth your money.

6/10: Shengshou Aurora 2x2
The Aurora 2x2 is Shengshou's first take on a 2x2 speed cube. Being a fan of 2x2 cubes, I was tempted to buy it and try it out to see if it could match the standards of some other similarly priced 2x2s out on the market.
It an extremely smooth feel to it, and it's very easy to flick the layers around at very fast speeds. However, it does feel somewhat unstable and due to the very fast speed, it is possible to easily make errors during algorithms.
The corner cutting is this puzzle's biggest problem. Even on very loose tensions, it cannot cut 45 degrees like most 2x2 speed cubes can and it can only cut about a quarter of a piece in reverse. This means that lockups are quite frequent with this cube, which can definitely mess up your solves.
Although it does not meet the standards of most 2x2 speed cubes, I have personally come to like the Aurora a lot. With a lot of practice and breaking into it, I set my fastest times with this cube.
At the price, It's hard to recommend it when there are much better alternatives, but it's also hard to not recommend it, because it does have potential if you practice enough with it. This cube would not meet up to the standards of a veteran cuber, but to somebody like myself who just cubes for fun, it is a worthwhile puzzle to have in your collection.
