Sometimes cheap really is best:
I bought a £1.99 metal Proteam footpump for my bicycle tyres. The box was dusty, so maybe it was bankrupt stock; but it’s robust and works a treat. I bought 10 x Imation CD-R’s for £4.99; they work flawlessly after Sony’s expensive coloured ones stuttered and failed. I bought Brian Eno’s Before and After Science on CD for £3.99; superb. And for £3.75 I got the full registered version of NetObjects Fusion 4.0, which is free on the CD with September’s Personal Computer World magazine. Sadly, it doesn’t come with HomeSite 4.0, which the kosher ‘full’ version did.
