      Disadvantages

      Could not use it for more than a few weeks.

      When I first got my hamster she was just a baby, and only needed a small wheel to exercise on. As she grew out of her old wheel I decided to upgrade to something bigger that she could run on more easily.

      When I saw the more professional looking package of this and noticed that is was branded by 'Savic' who make some of the more expensive and expertly rated cages I was expecting great things for what seemed like a bargain £5!

      The wheel did look good to start with, when I installed it in the cage it seemed a lot sturdier and deeper than the wheel that had been provided for my by my cheap 'starter cage' and when I turned the wheel myself it ran smoothly and quietly

      However, when Noodle started to use the wheel, her added weight caused something inside it to rub together and cause a terrible scratchy squealing noise which was so loud it cause me to have to take the wheel down every night so I could sleep. Having to do this seemed to negate the point of having it at all, as the hamster only wanted to use it at night while I was trying to sleep.

      I tried oiling the wheel with small amounts of olive oil, but had no luck, and have since replaced both the cage and this wheel for something a lot quieter.

      I would not be able to recommend this wheel for anyone who keeps their hamster in their bedroom or even living room (you'd be amazed how quickly this noise can ruin a movie) however, perhaps if you are a very deep sleeper or deaf this would be suitable. The hamster did seem to like it and it was far more suitable for her needs than most other wheels I have seen.
