Default Marchioro vs Hamster Heaven??

Hi guys! I'm really excited about owning one of these amazing hamsters soon and I want to make sure I get the perfect cage! From poking around a bit, I've found both of these really great cages that you all probably know tons about. I was hoping someone might be able to tell me which one is a bit superior? I know Hamster Heaven has a lot more activities to keep these little guys interested, but marchioro seems to have more room! Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Pick witch ever one you like best! The Hamster Heaven is a little more suited for Syrians, if you wanted to use it for dwarfs, I would replace the tubes. Otherwise, it is fully up to you!
P.S. Sorry for the late reply!

Hello,
I have the Marchioro Goran 82, and the Marchioro Kevin 82. Both cages are the same size, yet come in different colors. The Goran has 1/2" bar spacing, so it is more suitable for a Syrian. The Kevin has 1/4" bar spacing, so you could have either a syrian or a dwarf. I can tell you that those cages are more like having a blank slate to work with. I personally think the accessories included with both cages are not the best quality. I chose instead to get my own accessories. The one thing I will say about both cages, is that the front door is enormous! It makes it really easy to get your accessories, and your hamster. I have a Syrian, and I can get his 12: flying saucer, and 12" wheel in and out of the door without a problem. Both the Goran and the Kevin can be used with the Veto 82 stand. This is a picture of my Goran on the Vekto 82 stand.

I know a few members here can tell you more about the hamster heaven. I think it's just a matter of personal preference.
Enjoy shopping for your cage and your hamster! Let us know what you decide.

I have both the HH & the Kevin 82. I honestly LOVE the Kevin just because it is SO versatile & can be used for any species of hamster due to the small bar spacing & I had a plan for a dwarf hanster. As virtualkeith mentioned the front doors are ENORMOUS!! I also have the Vekto stand & love it as well.

I have the hamster heaven & the Kevin too & much prefer the Kevin, I seem to be able to get a lot more in there somehow, the base on the HH has a big slope on it which actually reduces the size quite a bit, I don't like tubes so I never used any of the attachments which means it's a pretty basic, not that big a cage, both have really good access, personally if I had to choose I'd go for the Kevin every time.

I get confused when people talk about the Hamster Heaven in the US, because it's very difficult to come by in the US since it's a UK product I believe. However, the Hamster Haven (notice spelling) is a US product and much too small for a Syrian, and a bit cramped for a dwarf (I do have one but only use it for long vet stays). The Goran is great. I took the shelf out to see my hamster easier and cleaning is a bit tough blindly reaching under it. I use the Goran for my mice because my Syrians are bar biters and my mice love it.

Actually, while it's a UK product, Amazon sells it on their website for US customers! The Goran looks like another great option for sure though

The UK Hamster Heaven has been available for sometime now on Amazon (shipped from the UK) for around $130-$150 (don't know if that includes the shipping cost or not). So, many people that mention the Hamster Heaven are truly speaking of the UK product. I have both the UK Hamster Heaven and the Kevin 82...both are great & spacious, but I prefer the Kevin.
