The Gan 354 is a real competitor for the best small cube on the market. Perfect for one handed solving and those with slightly smaller hands.
With many of the features found on the GAN flagship cube - the Air SM, but in a smaller size, such as:
GMC (Gan Magnetic Capsule) Magnets are not placed by hand, or glues into position, so they will always stay in location, and will always be perfectly positioned.
4 different elasticity options - the cube comes with one set installed, and three replacement sets.
A top tier for < 56mm

If you have small hands, 2mm short of average 3x3 size might mean nothing, and yet!
This 54mm stickerless gan is very fast, very smooth, with a great finition overall, good magnets strength, and satisfying cornercutting.
I just can't linger on the review, it's not my best main of all time, but I must admit it the best hands-on feeling I ever felt with a 3x3. The turning is silk.
And it has that particular damped sound, it's a quite "discrete" cube actually.
My only regret goes to the color shades, which I'd like brighter, more flashy (especially the green one). But it's just a detail.
Also very nice for OH.

This is my first gan cube and also magnetic cube and i love it soo much! The cube is very smooth out of the box and quiet. The size is very benefitial to me because i have pretty small hands considering my age. If i could i would recommend this cube to you as much as possible!
An amazing cube, but not for everyone

As my first Gan product, they've left a good impression on me. The cube is (compared to the GTS2M) so smooth it's unreal. The shades are gorgeous and I love the look of the visible magnets and the blacked out spaces in the cube. The cube sounds muffled, but is still satisfying to listen to.
The cube is insanely fast, a little too fast for me actually. I changed the cube from green springs to yellow springs. The difference is noticeable and I feel the cube is more controllable with the yellow. I also lubed the cube to slow it down slightly. Coming from the GTS2M as my main, I found that I had to be more careful with this cube while turning as it was easy to overshoot turns. As I got more used to it, this became less of an issue, however, I still prefer the more forgiving turn style of the 2M. Corner cutting is no issue, as expected from a 31 pound cube. The magnets are quite strong, which compliment a cube of such high speed. So far no corner twisting, and it rarely locks up (usually when I'm doing an unfamiliar algorithm).
In conclusion, while the cube is amazing, I don't think it will suit everybody. Would I say it's worth 31 pounds? Not really. It's a lot of money to spend for a single 3x3, and I think most people would be better off buying cheaper high-performance cubes (or more types of puzzles!). But if you got money to spend, I'd recommend this to people with smaller hands and a light turning style. For beginners, I'd say go for another cube that is easier to control. Being an intermediate solver, I feel like only advanced solvers will really take this cube to it's full potential. I'd also recommend this potentially as a travel cube as it is super light and surprisingly quiet.
