    This wheel is certainly quieter than the standard wheel I had. Since it’s plastic, it’s easy to clean too. However, the wheel will get loose and wobble after about 2 weeks of use. I think it seems to be the construction of the back attachment and the axle. Once this happens, it is still “quiet,” but definitely not nearly as noiseless as when it is first used. I’m not sure it can be fixed, as I’ve tightened it as much as possible and it’s still causing some vibrations (I’m using it attached directly to the side of the cage, btw). In any case, it works well enough that I can sleep. As for durability, it seems a bit worn after only 2 months. Then again, it hasn’t broken yet. I’m just disappointed this product isn’t made sturdy enough to maintain its original quietness after use by my new syrian hamster, who it is supposed to be for (as pictured on the packaging). It could work better for dwarves though. It’s also a shame that amazon didn’t let me choose the color I got, haha, but that’s not really a problem.

    In the end, if you’re looking for a fast, reasonable alternative to a screeching wheel, this will do it. But if you’re willing to do some searching online, and maybe spend more money, try getting something else for syrian hamsters.

    For example: Wodent Wheel (heard lots of great reviews and comes in an 8″ size), SAM Lightning Wheel/some other SAM wheels (have a slightly different design from the silent spinner that may work, after all they’re also plastic), Karlie Wonderland Wheel (is 8″ and silent, but it’s wooden, so maybe not the best), etc.

    A qualidade é muito mais superior do que imaginava, e o diâmetro também está em um tamanho muito bom. Espero que meus gerbils usem e não consigam destruir.
    Queria ter comprado duas unidades mas essa era a última do estoque 🙁

    No complaints, and the hamster really seems to like it! [Update: It does get noisy eventually.]

    PRICE, QUALITY, PRICE FOR QUALITY: Good quality, appropriate price (on Amazon). I dunno what’s the reviews saying the yellow thingie falls off; mine is fine and it’s been weeks. I’m using it on the ground with the stand.

    SIZE: I heard the next size down was too small for roborovoskis except for babies, so I bought this one. It seems comfortable and spacious for my adult female roborovski, but not so big that I feel like I went TOO big. I’m happy that she has more running room (side to side) and that it’s a flatter run for her (rather than her having to arch her back).

    GETTING DIRTY: Yes, you have to wash the urine & feces off of it from time to time, but why have a pet if you aren’t willing to take care of it? This wheel is probably much safer and much more comfortable for their little feet than a wire one that the urine & feces can drop through, so, that’s just how it goes. Suck it up for the sake of your hamster (and your ears).

    Besides, I don’t see why wire wheels would need to be cleaned any less often (even if the need to do so isn’t as immediately visually obvious) but, sadly, I bet a lot of people go weeks or months letting them get all nasty. That’s a problem with the OWNER, not with plastic vs. metal wheels…

    NOISE: It’s not utterly silent (duh), but it’s so quiet that I generally don’t realize that she’s using it unless I look and see it. When you’re lying in bed and thinking about it, sure, you can hear it a bit, but I was going insane from the previous wheel (even with olive oil on it), whereas now I never even think about it, ever. Her scritching and scratching about the cage is distracting for me, some nights, but never the wheel. [Update: Yeah, it gets noisy eventually, and now I’m back to needing earplugs. Took a few months though, not weeks.]

    Recommended! It’s also attractive. I’m glad mine turned out to be purple 🙂

    Our little dwarf gal loved it from day one. And yes, it is quieter than standard wheels that come with the cage. Spins smooth and quiet. If wobbles a bit, just hand-tighten the center knob. The metal stand requires lots of force to pull it out…but it will come out.

    This model of wheel has been my favorite for years. It was always quiet and durable enough to last for years. However, this latest one broke in just under three weeks with a baby gerbil.

    As far as I can tell, the lips of the twist lock bracket aren’t strong enough to support any weight. One side snapped off entirely and the other shows signs of failure. I seem to remember in previous iterations this was a single piece, so it was never an issue before.
