This is a very well made cage. Once assembled, it doesn't have any parts that feel loose. Assembly was pretty easy and took about 20 minutes. I did have an issue with a couple walls not fitting together, but a few hits with a rubber mallet forced them into place. It's bigger than I thought it would be too. I bought it for two guinea pigs and they seem to like it much better than their previous enclosure. I love that it has two big doors that give easy access to the entire enclosure allowing me to reach all of the enclosure to clean it out. I only have one major complaint, and it's the shallow flooring trays. I'm don't understand why the trays don't have higher walls. Every time one of the guinea pigs moves too fast, bedding flies all over my floor. This is a serious design flaw that needs to be redesigned. If the wall was about 3 inches taller, I would have definitely given 5 stars. I've seen a scatter tray that sells on amazon, but it has terrible reviews and is pretty expensive for what it is. I plan to design something myself that will keep my floor a bit cleaner. Overall, this is a very solid cage that performs well but it's being held back by a cheap bedding tray.

**UPDATE** I made my own guard using 3 1/2 inch pine boards that I cut and glued together the same size as the original tray. It rests on top of the tray adding 3 1/2 inches of height to the tray walls and can be removed just as easily as the litter tray. The cut lengths I used were 2 boards 23 inches long and 2 boards 33 1/4 long.
