(something) is a good value

"Value" is a quality that means the amount of use or enjoyment that you get from something.

"Value" is similar to "price" in some ways. But the "price" of something means how much it actually costs, while the "value" means something closer to the "real" worth.

They aren't cheap, but they're a good value.
