Type A is a good speedcube, and the most common.  Yes buy.

Type B is no-no.  It loosens up after lots of use, and it has the worst pops.

Type C is not so good.

Type D used to be godly, but now, they have changed it and it is the worst type of all 6.

Type E is good, it locks up occasionally, but overall good.

Type F is about as good as Type A.

Get Type A, or Type F.  If neither of those are available, get E.

Speedcubes - Type A, C, F
Ignore B, D, and E.

A is the best. Overall best corner cutter, and great in speed too. Rarely pops if set at perfect tension
C is a good corner cutter too, and many speedcubers use it for one handed solving. However pops so much. Rarely locks up
F is the fastest. Good corner cutter. Pops every 15 solves. but not serious.

Do not buy DIY type A.
I use it in this video. It is hard to make really fast solves with it.
It stucks if you are starting to get fast.
