The first wheel we had was the smallest option - which I purchased since it was what Russ was using when I adopted him - which remained in tact. He outgrew this so we went to the next size up, same story. But when we ordered this largest size, the first cracked in shipping (not the fault of the manufacturer but inconvenient) and the second was noticeably warped when it arrived and snapped suddenly during routine cleaning after two months.
If you are looking at the small or medium sizes, I would give them *high* praise and five stars! They're basically silent, sturdy, easy to maneuver during daily spot cleaning, offer a nice extra hideaway (Russ loves to nest behind his, especially the medium sized wheel, which he doesn't do with his vertical wheel), completely safe for tiny toes, and I couldn't be happier with them. But the largest size is noisy, easily broken, more difficult to clean, and too expensive for how short it lasts.
I decided to go ahead and buy one last wheel while I try to find a good alternative since I know he will use it and enjoy it. Similarly, I'm giving it three stars, because it truly is Russell's very favorite running wheel. And, when it works, I would give it a five. However, I can't recommend it based on how short they last.
I didn't want to buy another one of these for obvious reasons - that it broke quickly for no reason except maybe bad design and because I'm not that rich. So, I've tried to repair it to no avail. I tried driving a screw through the center like another reviewer had mentioned but I was unable to replicate their success unfortunately. I tried other things. Eventually, I bought him a round wheel, but he doesn't like it. He enjoyed his flying saucer wheel and hasn't been the same since it broke. I could either buy a new one every month to keep him happy, keep trying and trying to repair the old one, or beg him to please give the other wheel types a try. I'll keep trying to fix this wheel. He loved it. but it shouldn't have broken after such a short time. In its design, there's not enough support in the base. It's clear when looking at it now that it's snapped off, and by considering that the weight put on it while your animal is running on it is concentrated at the bottom half of the wheel at all times. A reinforcement in the base would offset that issue and prevent breakage, in my opinion. That's what I will continue to do or I will use the parts to build an improved version with a reinforced base. The spinning center where I need to drive the screw through has posed a problem for me. Suprisingly, since engineering is a specialty of mine - however, power tools are not. Any advice on how I could achieve this would be greatly appreciated if a reviewer has found a sustainable solution to the structural problem in the base without affecting the spin. I've so far only been able to reinforce it enough to keep it together but it results in too much resistance. And so, an awkward spin that is not smooth due to the increased resistance he isn't strong enough to get a spin going. I want my hedgehog to be happy again and I want Ware Manufacturing to fix this defect with a simple reinforcement before selling more.

Detail: The pin that holds the "wheel" to the base is garbage plastic. It has 4 prongs for the wheel to click into it. 2 of these broke off within a week. This caused the wheel to bounce while my hedgie used it, causing the other prongs to break within a few days. After they all broke, the wheel just scrapes on the base, making the most annoying sound and causing it to wear and heat up.
Do not buy this.
It's in the garbage now.
2. A little piece in the middle of the saucer (the pin that keeps the wheel fix to the botton) was broken already (when I open the package). But it seems to hold anyway (will cost more to ask for an exchange, so I didn't wanted to spend time as it works anyway).
3. My chinchilla doesn't want to use it!!! She can not figure how to use it, as it has an angle.
4. I am asking myself if it is good the animal's legs to run very often on that kind of wheel (because of the angle). The animal has to run while trying to keep balance.
Over all, I think that the idea is good. It is very silent, easy to clean and the price is OK.
