Goran 82 Rat Cage
Excellent Quality and Huge!
It's great for my Syrian hamster. The base allows for up to 5 inches of fluffy bedding for her to dig in without it getting all over the floor. The whole cage is very sturdy for transport, but not too heavy. We love it!

Excellent cage for syrian hamster owners in the US!
I ordered this from drsfostersmith.com. When you buy from them it gets shipped from the manufacturer and everything comes packaged. It's a great cage, ivory base and green wire top. Bar spacing is 1/2" so only suitable for syrians? It comes with a large rectangular shelf, a large food dish (too large for a hamster), large water bottle (also too large) and a huge tube that can be hung from the top of the cage. The tube has some ventilation slits but I'm going to lay some felt in it to cover them up and hang it from the top with some short bungee ties. Really like the green wire top (odd because I'm not much a a green person). The wire top I received is in perfect condition, every bar is perfectly straight and no paint rubbed off. It's about 32.5" long x 20" deep x 14" tall. The door is part of the front and top of the cage, 15" long and 7" tall on the front and 7" deep from the top. Makes it very easy to access anything in the cage. It can fit a huge 11-12" wheel although if you have a 12" I recommend not having any bedding under that spot. I'm very happy and satisfied with the cage. I highly recommend it for syrian hamsters!

Great Hamster Cage..
Great cage for both Dwarf and Syrian Hamsters. It's spacious, sturdy, and affordable. It's also an investment because it can be passed on to other hamsters. I like the green bars..It's easier to look inside the cage and see what's going on than a cage with white bars. It also looks more natural, and if you do natural cage set ups, the cage colors are perfect.

Great cage for my hamster, but arrived broken
I bought my cage here because I bought two on another site and one arrive broken and I was told the packaging here was much better. That wasn't actually the case here and I had to return the cage as a chunk of a corner was broken off. The return process is slower than I'd like.
That being said, the cage itself, when fully intact, is great for my hamster. This is the only wire cage I know of in the US that is appropriately sized, though the price could be better. The accessories for it are for rats (as this is a rat cage) and are too large for hamsters (the water bottle particularly). I'm not putting down the cage for its accessories not being hamster friendly when the cage is meant for rats of course. I took out the shelf because he slept under it at the back so I could not see to spot clean and the shelf is not easily removable. I did add a hammock though and made a long coroplast house in which the top serves as a shelf and is easily removable.
The cage opening is awesome! It is so large and a 12" saucer can easily be taken out for cleaning. The base is deep to allow for a deep layer of bedding. The cage is so big, that I added a wheel in addition to the saucer because my boy has so much energy to burn off (despite having a lot of playpen time). This cured Wicket's initial bar-biting habit. The bar spacing is a little less than 1/2". Overall, I would recommend this cage, but be aware it can arrive damaged. Because I bought two broken cages and got 1 good one, I didn't want to keep trying my luck, so my other two Syrians are in 40 gallon breeder tanks with mesh lids.
