Which adjective do you prefer?

Rossie Rossie
Some reviewers like to use the word "cheap" to describe inexpensive items in their reviews, but this adjective is also used to suggest something of poor quality. Do you prefer to see the word "inexpensive" rather than "cheap" to describe a not too expensive item?

I like this topic
When I hear "cheap" I think of cheaply made poor quality. I like using budget friendly,affordable,pr iced just right things of that nature.

Cheap doesn't suggest poor quality to me so I prefer inexpensive or similar adjectives.

I'll use "inexpensive" or "priced low" if I'm talking about just the price of an item. I usually reserve "cheap" to mean "poor quality," though I'm sure there have been a few times I've used it for price discussion.

If it is inexpensive but still a quality item, I will refer to it as such.


If it feels cheap and shoddy, then by all means I am going to rail on it.

Unfortunately "cheap" can have negative connotations, but in the right context I don't mind it.

Cheap usually means cheaply made. Inexpensive can mean quality without much money.

I would probably use "cheap" because it's easier to type and I am lazy.

Cheap makes me wary about the quality, so inexpensive or affordable are definitely preferred.

The word "cheap" could be taken negatively, but I do use it if the cost is really low.

I have no preference, but I'm going to start being careful about how I say it in reviews from now on....

I am of the mind that cheap is a shoddily made item. Inexpensive is something that is a quality item, but doesn't cost a lot.

Since this is a review, you have the ability to choose your words more carefully than when speaking; I'd definitely use inexpensive instead of cheap, for the reasons everyone else has pointed out.

Inexpensive is more proper.
