Out of the box, the slice layer is very smooth, and it flows perfectly. The U and D layers felt tight and slow, but the cube is pretty good after loosening, and it has slightly less corner cutting than the qiyi, but is smoother and better in the other areas

Good Square 1
Buy this cube and expand your cubing adventures!!! Smooth turning, stable, exciting puzzle! Some owners have solved the stripping core problem by changing the nut to a lock nut (size 6-32). So far so good, but I will replace the nut anyway to be on the safe side, lube it, and break it in. Seems easy to do. Enjoying it very much.

The Slices are very nice and smooth, and out of the box it was sandy. When I broke it in, it was very good and I suggest for everyone. One problem with this is that the other layers can be rather sluggish at first, but lubing it helps.

This cube is probably the best turning out-of-the box puzzle I've ever had! Haven't needed to adjust adjust anything or add lube at all. It's great!

Best on the market
Smooth, and adaptable to different turning styles. Very satisfying to turn. Square-1s still have some work to do in the corner cutting and locking departments, but this is an amazing price for such a dynamic cube.

The slices are really slick and you can easily do 360 degree turns with one flick. This was my first square-1 and it is really good.

It is good for a square 1. Most other square 1s are bad though.

Great Square 1
I have been using this cube for a few days now, and I really like it. It is nice and fast, and I have not done any lubing or tensioning. I previously got the QiYi Square 1, and after a couple days of using it, it suddenly got super tight and hard to turn. Even if I loosened it as much as I could, it was still very hard to turn. I have not had that problem with this cube. Overall, I think this is a very good Square 1, and I would definitely recommend it.

Good after proper setup
The Volt sq1 has its flaws. Once a piece broke and I had to buy a new one. It strips and if it is tensioned to tight, it locks up a ton. But if those issues are fixed the volt is very stable but still fast. In my opinion, this is the best sq1 on the market!

Amazing design and durable as hell!
This square 1 is so fast it's unbelievable. I thought it was the lube but after a few hundred solves it still holds up as the best square 1 on the market by far. The lengthened piece in the middle layer allows for much more fluid turning. Absolutely incredible!

Best sq 1
This sq 1 is so good! Smooth, fast, crispy, beautiful colours, it's a great step up from the QiYi!

X-Man Volt Square-1
QiYi sent me this, and let me tell you, this is the best on the market out of the box, the crisp and fast smooth is a feeling everyone loves! It's better than QiYi out of the box, honestly if you have a few more dollars, get this.

I Love it
It is the best square one on the market, I have never felt a better square one.

I was using a guanlong square one and got very frustrated because of the constant pops, this cube is amazing. It never pops and it's super fast and smooth. I love this cube! I've broken so many pbs with it.

I have heard really good things but mine was destroyed. It's from somewhere else and it pops like a calvins! It's very fast and smooth but idk what happened. Just get the Mf8 it's way way better
