Dometop cage vs Play stand cage?

Which type of cage is better? I heard that dome top cages reduces a bird from being so cage territorial. I like the idea of a play stand top cage but i dont want my bird to be cage territorial. Keep in mind i would have a bird tree stand along with other play gyms and perches around the room.

Out of these 3, which would you guys recommend? I like the looks of the 1st one the best but i like the play stand for the 2nd one. All are roughly the same size. but i do prefer the flat tops. also is it just me or the material for the 1st cage seems better and sturdier?

they are all roughly 24x22x68

I like this one below. He can play on top of the cage and then fly to his playgym to do his wing excercise if he wants to. 26X24 is okay accompanying it with the playgym, senegal will be happy with that, minimum width I feel should be 26 inches, 24 is too small.
This is the one I like

What about this one. Not sure what brand it is but it's of similar size and is a lot cheaper.

You have to be careful with some of these, it says 32"X30" that is the external size with the seed catcher,
the cage actual size is only Inside Dimensions 23-3/5"W x 21-1/2"D x 35-4/5"H

Nir, I think all the cages are nice. As Tippa said, make sure the size is for the interior of cage.
My cage is like the first King cage, except by A&E, powder coated. I don't use the seed catchers, takes up too much room. I insert plastic place mats around 3 sides of the cage and they work very well keeping in the mess. I just use metal clips to keep them in place and I take them off to rinse fruit stains.
Topper comes right out and climbs to top to look for treats, but really prefers to be closer to me on his tabletop stand by my laptop. I just ordered a free-standing metal stand so he can come into the living room with me. He only get his Nurtiberries and dried apricots and dried hot peppers when he he out of his cage. And he plays with toys on all of his spaces.

If you are going to have all the different stands that you mentioned, any cage you mentioned would work fine. Good luck!

I like flat tops/play tops a lot more because it is flat and the bird can get around better and it's also easier to throw a play gym on top!

It really depends on what type of parrot you have I have a cockattoo and those would be way to small for her
