well what happened to my friend in the shengshou happened to me. the entire top top fell off on my lanlan 4x4. the interior is a circular thing that has the pieces hooked in a line. for me my white center piece, bottom left, fell off and the hook that holdes it in place broke. if you superglue the hook to the piece, you wouldnt be able to put it back without breaking the hook again. if you put the hook in the hole and tried superglueing it to the piece, it wouldnt stick. help! i dont really want to buy another one since it took a month to get here.

I'm not very sure. I still hear that Shengshou 4x4x4 (esp v4) is the best one. Also, it's not expensive either, and it's core is adjustable. V-cube doesn't have those features. I'm not sure whether I can trust QJ with 4x4x4 since I never tried one of theirs, but (off topic) I like their pyraminxes. ^^
If you both are referring to the lockups that happen when the inner layers are turned by themselves, the V-Cube 4 doesn't do this. Also, there are two mods to help with the lockups. They're known as the Konsta mod and the Florian mod. Here's a tutorial by cyoubx that shows how to do them. They can be done to the third and fourth versions of the ShengShou 4x4s.
