Blu-Ray player for £10 to replace my up-for-sale PS3.
Advertised as having a broken remote. Helps if you put batteries in..... it's a Ethernet enabled Toshiba with apps and streaming features built in. Cracking bit of kit.

I picked up 2 laptops off a Facebook freecycle page last saturday. A Samsung NP-R519 and a HP 6735s. Both were listed as broken. The Sammy had no charger and a weird propietry ac port and the HP had no battery. I managed to get the parts off eBay for about 20 quid and now have a pair of very nice laptops. The Samsung is especially nice and the battey lasts around 2 hours with heavy use.

A projector. Cool Dprinny. Have you got a screen to use with it?

VHS tapes? I'm guessing, that you got them from a charity shop? I think they have stopped accepting them. That's the last time I saw some pre-recorded VHS tapes for sale.
