The 1 Pound Challenge

The high street these days is full of pound shops (or 99p shops in some cases) and many of them sell computer and general “tech” accessories. But how good are these going to be for £1? Indeed, when you see that these include USB hubs and Bluetooth dongles, surely these aren’t even going to work – how can you do this for so little money?  Okay, so you can items for little cost on eBay but these sellers will have less overheads.

So, over the coming weeks (and maybe months) I will be plunging the depths of the pound shops to find the best and worst that they have to offer for the tech connoisseur.

Is there a hidden gem under your nose for just a pound?
