Reviewers may have received a benefit, like a sweepstakes entry or rewards program points, in exchange for writing a review.
Those benefits were not conditioned on the positive or negative content of the review.
The stand plate is white plastic and not "metal" as in the pic. It's just metal foiled wrapped bendable led sticks, OK for the price. The on/off switch is located close the a/c adapter instead of the light fixture, weird.
