To critterfan, who said this cage was better for guinea pigs, NO! Guinea pigs need a much larger cage than this, if its good for a hamster, it most definitely is to small for a piggy.

Nice Cage for a Syrian Hamster
When buying my hamster I refused to get anything but a ventilated cage. The ones with tubes are way to small for a Syrian. So, I knew that I had to get a decent cage. Well, sadly there isn't very many wire cages with small spacing between wires and big enough for a Syrian. This is the only one that fit the criteria. I do wish it was a little bigger, but I do let him out enough that it's fine. This is not meant for anything bigger than a Syrian. Rats, Guinea Pigs, Chinchillas, & Rabbits deserve better. There are better cages for them anyway. Dwarf hamsters may be a little too small. I'd recommend this for a quarantine cage for the bigger animals mentioned. Or even the cage you would use to go to the vet.
I'm quite happy with this cage. The only complaint would be the way it opens. It's lousy and annoying. However, my hamster has not been able to get out, so I'm not complaining too much.

Great basic cage!
I had one of those tiny brightly colored plastic tube cages and it was junk. Hard to clean, and waaay too small for my brand new (very large) long haired Syrian hamster King Fluffy. So I read all the reviews and decided to take a chance on this. Im SO glad I did! I bought mine in store, went right home and opened the box. It was in perfect condition. The sides folded right out and I was able to put it together in literal seconds without even looking at the directions. Very sturdy wire, and the bottom tray is AMAZING. Its a sturdy, deep plastic. It keeps my hammy feeling safe and secure (I have a cat and toddler) and it keeps all the bedding from being kicked out when Fluffy plays. This has room for his rather large house, wheel, lots of toys, water bottle and food dish with plenty of room to spare. Great purchase for the price. *The only con I have is, just like everyone else I hate the door latch. But I can live with it.

Don't waste your money!
I've had this cage for 2 years and 2 of the bars have broken! The first one broke in the first SIX MONTHS of having it! I do NOT recommend this cage to anyone, especially if you have rats, that can climb! Spend a little more for a cage that will last you much longer, because this one is NOT worth it!
