I wonder if Klingon qutlh be cheap can imply shoddiness. It certainly means inexpensive — it is contrasted with wagh be expensive in Conversational Klingon.

It need not be shoddy; perhaps the speaker assumes that the low price was achieved by omitting some functions. Then those that do work might work perfectly fine, but the device doesn't fulfill all of the speaker's expectations.
