Grreat Choice® Hamster Starter Kit
Great for beginners!
I recently got my first small pet ever abut three weeks ago or so. He is a Robo Dwarf Hamster. I got this cage because I liked the price and thought it was cool looking. The cage overall is good. We had great trouble putting it together, but once we got it it held firmly. If you are getting this cage, be sure to get a different wheel, too. the wheel it comes with is so so loud. I got a silent spinner about a week after. But the cage overall is pretty good, and I think i will have it for a while, although I am planning to expand it with tubes.

Great cage for one dwarf hamster
I bought this cage when my two "male" Chinese dwarfs had a litter of 7 babies...LOL. I couldn't decide how to handle it and I needed an inexpensive get by cage for the actual male. It has worked out great. He seems very content. It is super easy to clean...much easier than the Critter Trail I had them in that has a million tubes to clean. It has enough access doors to the cage so it doesn't feel so cramped when you are trying to clean or move things around. It doesn't have a lot of floor space for extra huts and things. A little more floor space would be better. The slope fits perfectly in the slot and is easy to take out for cleaning. The food bowl fits its slot perfectly so it doesn't slide around. Some other reviews said that the water bottle leaks and the wheel is loud, but my wheel is silent and the water bottle doesn't leak at all. I love it so far. In the store, the cage looks plain and uninteresting compared to some of the brighter cages with a lot of tubes and extras, but a lot of difficult cleaning comes with all of the extras. I wouldn't put more than one small dwarf hamster in this cage. It is small, but has worked great for us. :)

DONT GET THIS
I had this cage, Its way to small for even my russian. The wheel was WAY too loud and vibrated the whole cage. We had to keep her down the stairs because of it.I bought my own water bottle because the one that came with the cage leaked. The little slope to get to the 2nd floor wasnt good either. My hamster kept slipping down it. I have to help her down and up. The top door was impossible to get open. I did NOT like this cage at all. Way to expensive for junk! Do not get this cage.

Great for beginners
I really liked this starter kit!! I am a beginner at owning pets and I never would've though to get a hamster. I really think this is a great start kits for people new to owning hamsters. I bought a syrian hamster and yes, the wheel is getting a bit too small for her now, but everything works out fine. My Syrian does get lonely in her cage because it is a bit too small :(The water bottle for the hamsters does continually leak... so I threw it away and bought a new one. The bars that clip on the side don't really work well for me though but its not like the hamster is going to lift the entire cage and get out.
