Default Flat running disc

Hi everyone! I'm new to hamster care and am preparing to buy a Syrian hamster. I've already read a lot of advice on wheels but I couldn't find much on a running disc, such as the Trixie Running Disc Plastic, which I'm considering to get for my future hamster.
Do you guys think this would be a good alternative for the classic wheels?
Thanks in advance for your response (:

This is the kind of disc I mean...

Flying saucers or discs are ok for occasional use in a playpen say but not as a substitute for an upright wheel, they do tend to run in a bit of an odd way on the saucers which isn't so good for them also they take up a lot of space in the cage which could be put to much better use really.
Have a look here for the best wheels.

you could use one but i strongly reccomend a normal wheel 12 inches for a syrian but an 8 inch wheel can be fine

Thank you two! I'll definitely be looking into other wheels as well! (:
