notice how there are cracks on both the front and the back. Each piece for the casing don't even close up properly. that's why you see a gap in the fixture

this is the other end of the fixture, but the same problem, hence the uneven-ness on the edge

that's the thing. i have asked around and people who gave me the recommendations said it's of good quality. from the beginning, i said i don't want to be told "you get what you paid for" in the thread i started
Light deals from this website?

Dude that really sucks! I'd be extremely upset with them. If your looking for a decent light that's not outrageously priced but at the same time isn't built by monkeys check out current USA I have a dual t5ho from them I got on sale for $50 and it seems like a decent quality. Plus every question I've had for them I've gotten an answer within 48hrs. The bulbs they come with aren't the best but aren't the worst I would reccomend switching them with geisman midday bulbs.

i was aware of the need for replacement on those bulbs, which i had anticipated and have no problem with. but these cracks are unjustifiable, uncalled for, and unexpected!!!
