I own 2 plastic cages, and one of these which I refer to as a "wire" cage. (The plastic ones are the ones with the tunnels and accessories) I have to say I love this cage b/c it is soooo easy to clean compared to the plastic cages I have. I LOVE that the food is up off the ground on a separate "tier" because it doesn't get wasted that way. They always drag their food out and instead of it being lost in bedding, they drag it out onto the platform. Our hamsters (Winter Whites) also love the deepness of the bottom of the cage. They love to dig in the bedding, and this cage allows for quite a bit of it! They can totally hide in it - they love it! I had to replace the water bottle because it wasn't working properly, but that might have just been my bottle - it looked well made and everything. The one hamster we have in the cage right now LOVES the wheel, and she might actually use it too much - it's starting to bend just a little bit, but nothing to really worry about. I hear a lot of people complain about their hamsters chewing on this type of wheel, but mine hasn't been doing that. She loves climbing up the side of the cage onto the 2nd floor instead of going up the stair thing(which you can't really do in a plastic cage - they usually have a very small amount of wire - not enough to really climb on). You can't add tunnels to it is the only downside, but I knew that when I bought it. The door is sometimes a little hard to open and close, but it's no big deal. All in all, I really like this cage b/c it's so easy to clean, and it fits one of our hamsters personalities - she loves to climb & she loves her wheel - it just really fits her. Simple, but good!!!
