First of all, when it comes to using the sculptures, and every other feature of the toy, you can't beat it. I use mine as my alarm clock, and I love waking up to it, and being able to choose my sound.
You can easily sit for and hour or two just switching the pieces around and finding new combinations, and the light show looks great, and it makes a great portable speaker for my mp3 player.
My only grief was with the recordable cube. I don't know if I'm the only one with this problem, but to record on the cube you must press and hold the mode and up button. Unfortunately, these buttons are so ill defined that I cannot seem to hold them, and by pressing both at the same time, I seem to actually be just pushing them randomly. I've heard the "Begin" message a couple times, but it has never actually let me record.
On the whole, this thing is excellent, but I really wish the cube were easier to record. As is, I just threw mine away. :\
