Problems with Minka Lavery Glass?

This is the light fixture I ordered from 1800lighting.com:

I actually ordered 2 of them. One was shattered and the other one has a couple of small cracks and bubbles.

1800lighting.com ordered me 2 more but there were also cracks and bubbles.
I got an email from them saying they would continue to order the fixtures until we got it right.

I emailed back and said I am now not sure since we've struck out 3 out of 4 times (I won't count the shattered one). Haven't gotten a reply yet - busy holiday weekend?

I do like the fixture especially at this reasonable price. It is damn heavy though. Is it worth me waiting again until we get it right? Do Minka Lavery fixture usually have cracks and bubbles in their fixtures especally where the glass is especially large?

Or do I just move on and look for something else.

P.S. - Order was first placed Ocy 18th and we're now Nov 30. I know lighting sometimes takes along time, but this is a bit long, no? We're not in a huge rush. but still. They have been nice in email and phone, but kind of slow.

Thanks for reading if you gotten this far!

I'd say it's worth waiting again. That's about what I'd expect time wise, maybe a bit slow. It sounds like they are treating you right though.
