Maybe I was expecting something different. The "glass" around the light is not glass it's actually plastic with a nylon lining. It doesn't look cheesy it's just not what I expected. All and all you can't beat the price I'd never be able to buy this light at a better price. The other comments stated the light was hard to put together I found it rather easy so I wouldn't be intimidated by the task.
