I had a cage like that and I did not care for it. One reason was I like my babies to be up higher and the second reason is that it is very flimsy. I bought an excel cage and I love it.

I actually had the same cage as this when i first got my gliders. It is very flimsy and not very easy to clean. Plus, i like to have more open space in the cage to give the guys some more gliding room. It will do in a pinch, but spending that kind of money, id pass on it. The madagascar cage is awesome. I have the hexagonal cage too and its not bad either.

The same seller (I think) has a listing for a set of 2 cages, same size, without the levels. I got it today and I'm going to set it up tomorrow. I plan to zip tie both together to make one huge one. I'll post pics when I'm done.

That cage IS very flimsy and the doors are hard to keep open and the wheels do not fit through the doors.

I had this cage too, just got a 3rd upgrade not too long ago. The cage has plenty of room (love that), and I REALLY miss the levels (they are removable and you can use and move them as you put in different sized toys etc).
For me, the perfect cage would be this cage and it's great levels only sturdier with bigger doors that swing open (these you have to pull up and they slam down (on a little neck if not careful).
It was flimsy (not that the gliders tried to make a break for it). I couldn't get some of the larger toys in and out, as the doors are only 10"x10". My spoiled babies heard about the new glider tread mill and HAD to have one. So - new cage with bigger doors. But for a first cage, one you might have for the first year, it would be great :-)
The only thing I found better than this one was the extra large sturdy cage I just bought for around 300$. If I couldn't do that one, the one you found there is the one I'd use till I saved up :-)
