This is a question Cheap Tat

OneEyedMonster remindes us about the crap you can buy in pound shops: "Batteries that lasted about an hour and then died. A screwdriver with a loose handle so I couldn't turn the damn screw, and a tape measure which wasn't at all accurate."

Similarly, my neighbour bought a lawnmower from Argos that was so cheap the wheels didn't go round, it sort of skidded over the grass whilst gently back-combing it.

What's the cheapest, most useless crap you've bought?

Commodore64 off ebay a few years back
Fought off a fair few bids for my boyhood gaming machine. It arrives in a fucked up Flymo Lawn Mower box wrapped in cling film. Ok says I. Takes it out of the box only to find 3 of the keys have been stuck down with Blu-Tack and the tape machine was held together with sellotape.

Second hand market! That's where you need to go.

I forked over £15 for mine, and it came with more games I could carry, the gun and the lightpen thingy that writes on the screen along with the usual tape deck and power supply.

If that wasn't enough the guy on the stall gave me a ride home in his van rather than have me try and take it all myself. Top Bloke.

That's nothing
A mate of mine bought a Super Nintendo at a boot fair with 10 games for 50p and it worked like it was brand new.
