I just got a Teraminx and I love it just because it turns really well even though it's so big, and it's just a fun thing to solve, more so than the Gigaminx. It's probably the most intense looking puzzle in my collection, except maybe my Square-1 when it's scrambled. I love having giant puzzles in my collection but I'm wondering if it's really worth $130. That's just slightly less than what I paid for my Teraminx. I feel like the 11x11x11 (thinking about [KO manufacturer removed]) might just kill my solving mood because it would be so repetitive.

Anyone have any experiences to share about owning an 11x11x11?

An 11x11 is repetitive but a teraminx isn't?

The Teraminx took me just under two hours, I have no idea how long it takes to do an 11x11

I paid 250$ for mine 2 years ago ;) Solving takes me ~30 minutes. I love it.

It is supposed to turn pretty well and be of good quality, but it's still a KO, and there's currently no way of getting around that short of stealing the cube and handing the money you would've paid for it to Verdes. And that might be a bit difficult.

So it really depends on whether you want that on your conscience. I think I'll just wait for a bit until a legitimate one comes out.

As for the actual question...

Actually no I think that works as an answer to that as well.
