Stickers fall out off too easily. Im afraid to use it again. Wait for stickerless version. Turns great.

Best Gigaminx around, but not perfect
This is without a doubt the best Gigaminx around, but it is not without flaws. It is extremely difficult to get on good tensions, which is bothersome to me as a perfectionist, but would not be an issue for most people. Additionally, the stickers are of poor quality, but there is an extra set in the box.

Stickers aren’t great
The turning is okay for a Gigaminx, but after my first solve I noticed that the stickers were showing some wear. After a while I will have to resticker it, but the nice thing is that they include an extra sticker set. If I could make a change to this product, I’d definitely give it better sticker quality or even get it stickerless if it were available. Still a fun puzzle to have in my collection..

The Shengshou Gigaminx is a really nice puzzle as all of the Shenshou -minx puzzles are. I've got the Kilominx & Master Kilominx and have used a couple of the others and they're all very good. This one is as well. However, it's not quite as smooth and fast as the others and one of the stickers arrived mangled, so not quite a 5-star puzzle. But still really nice and easily the best gigaminx on the market.

This is a great looking cube and a great addition to any cube collection. The stickers are ok and the contracts btwn colors are acceptable. The turning of the Gigaminx is smooth and it fits nicely on your hands while you are solving it. I enjoy solving large cubes but it does take a while to figure out how to solve the cube and a long time to physically solve it but it is very satisfying to do a complete solve.

This thing is great and is much cheaper than the MF8 gigaminx, was a bit tight out of the box but loosening fixed that, sticker quality is great and thecubicle has stickers that fit it, which I plan to apply all of eventually. Corner cutting is okayish for a gigaminx, the reverse corner cutting is a bit lacking. I recommend this puzzle, its quite a beast and nice to solve!

A Game Changer
I have been a twisty puzzle collector since the days of the cube4you and mf8 gigaminx hype began. I always stuck by the mf8 products. I purchased their teraminx but was so underwhelmed by both the mf8 and cube4you gigaminxes when I tried other peoples, that I actually never picked one up (despite the mf8 being what one would call good, at that time, it just never warranted the cash for me). Enter the ShengShou years later and after I returned to collecting and solving. This puzzle is not only cheaper significantly but the turning quality is unheard of, better than most megaminxes I have owned in the past right out of the box. It makes gigaminx a possibility for competition and also makes it a more easy-going fun solve for casual users. Movement is silky smooth and although corner-cutting is pretty unnecessary it actually gives you a good amount. Few lock-ups, Zero POPS, and the stickers look very good in natural light (I enjoy some of the deeper/darker shades they chose). This belongs in the ownership of anyone who enjoys puzzles, end of story, buy one!

This is my favorite cube in my collection. Stickers are already applied but it does come with an extra set. The turning on this cube is super smooth similar to the turning of shengshou big cubes such as the 9x9. It took a while to figure out and still it takes me nearly an hour to solve it. I would recommend it to people who like long solve her and there or if you really like megaminx or and want a bigger version.

Fun megaminx 5x5 combo!
If you are a fan of larger puzzles like the 4x4, 5x5, 7x7, megaminx, etc... Then this is for you. I enjoy puzzles I can partially solve and then set down for an hour or 2 then come back to later. This one you can easily do that with. Its basically like a 5x5 but in the shape of a megaminx. Its a blast! The stickers DO COME PRE-APPLIED! They just include an extra set in the box. The sticker shades are alright the yellow is pretty ugly though. The turning is kinda stiff but its not that bad. You aren't going to be doing a lot of corner cutting on this thing anyways. You can tension the puzzle with ease. I have only done 3 solves on it but a solve takes me about 2 hours (while doing other things around the house or online). I havent had any pops or anything. All together I have to say this puzzle is worth the $40 for it. I would take this over a 7x7 or larger any day,
