Excellent Starter Cage

I bought this cage for my Robo hamster and it was perfect. In some reviews, I saw there were some complaints about the wheel making noise; when I first got the cage, I experienced this problem, too. However, the rumbling all depends on how the hamster is running. When the wheel starts to squeak (it was a terribly loud, high-pitched screeching), all I had to do was spray the wheel peg with vegetable oil and it stopped immediately. I only had to reapply once, about four months later. There are some small parts that are a little frustrating to put together initially, but then they snap together easily. The only problem I have with the cage is the little "apartment" piece that extends on the top, the clasp is defective and won't snap shut. Since I have a tiny, little robo hamster, she can't open it despite that defect, but any bigger hamster could push it up easily. All in all, it's the perfect cage for a single (smaller) hamster to start off with for an apartment or dorm room.
I would recommend this to a friend!

Pablo loves his new cage! everything is great but it could get better. the wheel makes a rumble sound all the time, so if you were interested in it get a different wheel for the cage. Also if you were to get this cage you do not need to buy a little hut or house for him or her because they usually go to the top lookout to sleep because it is a hut and heat rises. I bet they also like to lookout the clear view! thanks Petco for giving me an amazing hamster and a beautiful place to live and rest!
overall review is that I would recommend this cage to anyone.
