We have two small dogs and living in a loft. With the regular dog crates, the doors in the open position would get into the way and take up much needed spaces. The ability to open the doors by pulling them up and then folding them on top of the crates is great. No more tripping over open doors!!!! We brought two before and like it so much that we brought two more for travel.
I would recommend this to a friend!

This is a terrific metal crate. It's a good size, and it's very easy to assemble and disassemble for travel. I love the fold up door for space-saving anytime-access for my dog. The door slides up and down without any trouble. My dog can see her surroundings, but she still seems to feel safe and protected. Her food and water bowls attach to the crate securely.
I have two problems with the crate. The first is the safety feature on the door that is supposed to keep it from crashing down on the dog. It requires me to use two hands to open the door. I have actually decided to tape this feature to the door. This disables the safety feature, but I'm pretty sure I'll never need it anyway. The handle is what keeps the dog from being able to push the door up, and that will not be effected.
The second problem I have with the crate is the noise. I've never had a swing open door, so I can't compare the two, but opening this crate door is really loud. The overall crate is loud when my dog moves around at night. I'm not sure if anything could be done about this issue.
Overall, I recommend this crate. I got an unbeatable deal from Petco, and the two problems I have with it aren't deal breakers.

Great product to use at home or when traveling. Once I mastered the initial setup, it was easy to collapse for travel & set up again.

The crates with the door that slides up and out of the way are great! It is so nice not to have the door in the way when it is open. We use the crate to contain the dog at night, and as a "house" during the day, so the door needs to be open all day. The other kind of door (opening horizontally) would never work for this, it would always be in the way when open.

We really wanted a crate that had a door that opened up to save us space. There are very few crates that are made like this. We first ordered the smaller version. Opening the door was a bit noisy and we decided to instead order the larger crate. The second crate came and it almost seemed like it was used before. The door didn't slide into place easily and you had to wiggle and jiggle it to get it to fall into place. It seemed like something was out of alignment. We returned both to a Petco store which was very convenient. They accepted both items. Just be sure to use the petco website to print out a "return receipt". You cannot just print your shipping email and use that.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

pretty good value

The best thing about this carrier is the up and over door.
you can keep the door open for your dog with out having the door swinging open and closed and getting in the way.
The over all quality is average for an inexpensive cage.
It was easy to assemble , I only wish it was available in a heavier gauge wire and "gold anodized" finish.

Not strong enough for my dog

I purchased this crate because of the design. I liked that the door slid up a track and laid on top of the crate and out of the way. However, maybe it's my insanely strong dog, that I'm fostering right now with separation anxiety, but she got out the 1st time we left her home. We bought d-rink clips and added those to the door and crate, she broke a d-ring and squeezed out. Now the door is bent and warped from her getting out, and barely slides through the track anymore. We now have purchased 6 baby masterlocks to secure the door in the track. I understand we have a unique situation here, but Im shocked that a 70lb dog can push the door right out of the track so easily. Maybe the track should be wider? Just a thought.. Otherwise it was super easy to put together and set up. We have zip tied the front and back panels on so she can't push them off.. which she could before. Other than that she loves the crate, hangs out in it when we are in the room no problem, just won't relax when we are out of sight.
