    I do not like them personally...companies say it gives an
    unobstructed view of your bird. True, but the acrylic ages
    (discolor not matter what they say) and they *scratch*.

    Fine for smaller birds (conures and smaller) but macaws do
    not do well in them, most of the acrylic cages are able to
    be taken apart by a macaw.

    Buy a trusted known name in cages and not only will you get
    a better cage BUT they will last much longer. The other
    issue I have is some birds prefer to feel like the big bad
    dogs/cats are going to be kept out. Depending on your bird
    they may prefer seeing something between them and fido.

    this issue pops up once and a while, you can search for the
    exact topic you are looking for as well.
