I should be more specific. The contacts for the top just sat on top of the pins, whereas Glenn's slide over the whole thing nice and snug like. The 2 wires leading to it were like 22 awg at best -Glenn's look like 14-16awg with the flexible insulation. The cheaper one's base was so hard to push in it made me nervous for the tube socket. I used it that night just to confirm the tube worked and that was it.
