This helmet meets all my expectations, and more! Now, before I go into more detail, I have to say that if you are expecting a 100% accurate quality helmet for this price, you are like Jon Snow and know nothing because you will have to pay a lot more money for something like that. Prop replicas (I think this helmet is good enough to be classified as a low end prop replica, but some would probably disagree with me) of helmets like this go for hundreds, sometimes thousands of dollars.
This helmet is claimed to be made from the molds from Empire Strikes Back. Realistically, this is probably made from a mold of a mold of a mold... of the mold from Empire. Molds of props get "watered down" when they make molds from molds. Basically, it's not 100% screen accurate. HOWEVER, this does not mean it is bad. It still looks very good to the untrained eye. Unless you know all the details of Vader's helmet, you won't really notice differences until you actually hold it up to a picture of the original to compare.
For this price, you will not get much better. In fact, I think this looks very good. Good enough that it could easily be used for display in your collection rather than as just a costume piece. A few words about this for those who might be worried about these details. It is big. It is the same size as the original, and therefor is made to fit David Prowse (the actor who wore the suit in the films). He is a massive guy. Also, you will notice that it has inconsistent texture and is not symmetrical. This is on purpose, not a defect. Certain surfaces are matte, and others are gloss. This is an attempt to mimic the multi-color paint job of the original. Yes, the original was not all black. It was actually black AND grey, but it doesn't show up well on camera. The original helmet was also not symmetrical because the mold was handmade. They tried to replicate this in this helmet.
Overall, it's not the best Vader helmet on the market by a long shot, but it's still VERY good, and it is extremely cheap compared to other Vader helmets. It's big, so some people may find it uncomfortable to cosplay in (unless you are like me and have a big head), but it at least makes a very nice display helmet. Totally worth the price.
