The speed solving methods are much more efficient, you move the cube about half as much as you do with basic methods.

If your fingers move at the same speed, this makes it twice as fast.

Jessica Fridrich's has a lot of interesting info, but speedcubing.com has the notations for variaous orientations of the cube.

aproximately the number of moves divided by 3 and then add a few seconds for identification...

this is going on an average of 50 moves in around 17-18 seconds (based on fridrich's average)

interesting.... gonna read up on her algorithms.

thanks

Place the four edges from the first layer - 7
moves - 2 sec.
Place four blocks each consisting of one
corner from the first layer and a corresponding
edge from the second layer. - 4 x 7 moves - 4 x 2 sec.
Simultaneously orient the corners AND edges
so that the last layer has the required color
(one algorithm out of 40). - 9 moves - 3 sec.
Simultaneously permute the 8 cubes in the
last layer without rotating corners or flipping
edges (one algorithm out of 13). - 12 moves - 4 sec.
TOTAL - 56 moves - 17 seconds

These are averages from her site
