Yes it is cheap, but it works for the most part just fine.

You (like me) are only looking at buying this hood instead of the official Canon one because you can't understand how a piece of plastic can be $50+ after you just spent a small fortunate on your lenses.
Well, this lens hood fits just fine (you are probably sticking it on your Canon 10-22?), it is cheaply made in that the threaded portion that locks on to the lens and the locking mechanism that clicks into place don't look well constructed and don't feel that great but they go on fine (with some fidgeting) and will stay on and do their job blocking light.
If you just bought an L-lens though, don't use this, go spend the money on the official Canon lens hood. They fit better, are built better and will compliment that lens a bit more.
So in short, this gets the job done, but definitely seems like a value-hood. In my case, that was just fine, so I'm happy.
