Moovin on up

Before the GAN 460 M, I had purchased a rather mediocre cube from Amazon. I was so excited for the Amazon cube to arrive that when I got it, I was sorely disappointed in its turning ability. I used it a couple of times and put it down, never to be touched by the hands of a human again.

After a few months had passed, I decided that after solving my vast collection of 3x3 cubes, it was time to move up in the puzzling world and give myself more of a challenge. As a result, my eyes were drawn back to 4x4 puzzles, specifically to the GAN 460 M. I had loved every GAN puzzle I have owned and figured that I may as well give their 4x4 cube a chance.

I am pleased to announce the quality of this puzzle has pushed me to better myself with a 4x4 cube. The colour scheme is bright and clear, so it was a doddle trying to build my edges (which I tend to struggle with most) and solve the cube as a whole. I haven’t even used any lube on this cube yet, however it turns like milk left out the fridge, effortless and quick!

To me, this is a benchmark for 4x4 puzzles. Because of this puzzle I have had a revelation; it doesn’t matter how big the puzzle is, or how many sides it has. It is all about how well it works. A bad puzzle will be put down forever, without the desire to solve ever crossing your mind. But the best puzzle are the ones you will want to play with, the puzzles you just can’t put down because of how well they work.

Doesn't quite live up to the name

Overview:
Considering GAN make arguably the best 3x3s on the market, it was somewhat expected that their first 4x4 would fit right in with that line. However it is generally agreed that it didn't quite live up to its expectations. The cube does have some good qualities though.

Appearance should not really play a part in deciding what cube to use beyond it being black or stickerless, however it cannot go unsaid that this cube is the most visually pleasing 4x4 on the market in my opinion.

Setup:
I have not adjusted the settings out of the box

Speed:
The outer layers on this cube do resemble those of a GAN 3x3 to an extent. They are quite fast but controllable. The inner layers are unfortunately a bit slow.

Magnets:
GAN have always been good at choosing the best magnet strength in their cubes and the 460 is no exception. The magnets add stability to the layers but aren't too strong.

General feel:
The cube turns reasonably well but speed isn't everything. Corner cutting is barely past line to line on the outer layers, and on the inner layers it is barely existent. Both parities can be performed reasonably well without fear of popping, but the lack of corner cutting does make this a bit uncomfortable,

Final thoughts:
I would not really recommend this cube to anyone who wants to get faster at 4x4. The price tag makes it difficult to recommend it to beginners as well. I think the type of person it would suit would be those who want it as a collector item. However of course since I have not taken the time to set this cube up my review is purely based on how it feels out of the box, and it may get better with setup.

Great overall cube

Great cube, outter layers are brillient and have a smooth/crunchy feel, the magnets help make it stable and are perfect strenth however the inner layers tend to lock up which could probably be fixed with some lube and tentioning
