I've tried this cage before and it's not bad but not great either. Filled to the top with bedding, it's 205 square inches (a 10 gal is 200 sq in; same size, $50 less on sale.) It's too tiny for any hamster species, colony of gerbils, mouse trio, rats, etc. The only pets I'd keep in here are a single male mouse or a small colony of african soft fur rats but if you have an active pet or colony of mice, it won't be big enough. Wire flooring is unsafe too; it can cause bumblefoot. This can lead to death in severe cases. So no matter who lives in here, you must cover the wires (you can use cardboard, fleece, wood planks, or another solid surface to make it safe.) Cage wires aren't the greatest and they bend but they're not terrible and I don't think critters can escape from it unless they're strong or very small. Overall it's an alright enclosure for a male mouse, asf rats, or a temporary hospital cage for a sick hamster, gerbil, rat etc, but for the price a 10G with a topper is better.
My two gerbils chewed through two plastic bottom cages. They are hard little buggers to catch. This cage has provided them room and roaming space and the bottom is smooth so they can’t chew. It’s also nice that the can create tunnels in the bottom and use the ramps to get to the food and water. I do find this to be a little costly but I had already gone through two regular cages and needed a foolproof design to keep them from escaping. For me it was worth every penny for piece of mind.
So I bought this for my hamster and this is such a high expensive price just for something small and I really don’t get it and it’s wire flooring it’s so expensive for something small (I do not recommend)
Looks like great cage. But some of us can't afford high price for something used for short time. My hamster won't outlive the cage. Sorry.
