Sound

  1. Dysfunctional, can’t be said to fulfill its stated purpose
  2. Poor, barely functions as a product
  3. Weak, not useless, but hard to imagine who would buy it
  4. Significantly flawed, but may have a few attributes that make it worth a look
  5. Average, but a good buy only for certain tastes/needs
  6. Average, but still worth considering
  7. Good, some flaws, but still a good buy for most people
  8. Solid performance with a couple of notable flaws; a good buy all-around
  9. Truly outstanding, with a minor flaw or two
  10. Among the very best you can buy, not necessarily perfect but very close

Value

  1. A total, obvious rip-off no one on Earth should buy
  2. Ridiculously overpriced; no way to make a case that it’s a good deal
  3. Overpriced for what it offers; hard to think of a reason why someone would buy it
  4. Not such a good buy unless it has some feature you especially want/need
  5. An OK buy, but you can definitely find a better value
  6. A fair deal; you’re getting what you paid for but nothing more
  7. A good deal, better performance/features than you’d expect for the price
  8. A great deal, although it’s possible you could find a better one
  9. A fantastic bargain for what it offers
  10. An unbelievable steal
