    Which sentence is/feels cheaper?

    1) Product A is cheaper than B
    2) Product A is much cheaper than B

    Which sentence will make A sounds much more cheap?

    Re: Which sentence is/feels cheaper?

    If A is "much cheaper" than B, the difference is bigger than simply being "cheaper."

    Of course, if B is very expensive, then even if A is "much cheaper" it still may not be "cheap." It's just not as expensive.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
