The new QiYi MS 2x2 is a magnetised, budget speed cube that was released in late April 2020. Out of the box, the QiYi MS 2x2 is light and smooth and great for beginners and speed solvers alike.

Very smooth cube and the magnet strength is perfect. It's medium strength and it's extremely satisfying to do R,R' over and over again. There are however 2 magnets separated in each piece. So it could click between the two magnets. However I don't see that this is a problem. I doubt you will get a +2 for that. The texture is frosted which I like. This is the best 2x2 out there mainly because of the price. It's soo cheap but very high quality.
Have to admit didn't like out of the box got lockups and was generally disappointed.
Spent a bit of time tensioning it and added some lube and its not my favourite 2x2 (and I have an MGC2 and Xman as well).
If you know how to tension and lube a cube this 2x2 is well worth your money.
Smooth turning, and has a nice feel to it. The only downsides to the cube is that the magnets are slightly weak, but if you can control the cube you'll be fine. Great for a budget
Bought this for my son to replace his more basic version. He said its so much smoother and easier to use which makes for quicker solve times.
With lockdowns and restrictions ending, I was looking for some budget puzzles for traveling, and this puzzle did not disappoint.
It is really nice to turn, well constructed and doesn't feel like a budget cube at all. With a bit of lube, the initial scratchy feeling disappeared and the turning feels quite effortless.
Really pleased with this purchase and grateful to Kewbz UK for their first class service.
