VS Commodore Omega
Hey guys.. I'm sure we've all done it before, bought something spontaneously that we didn't need or want, or pressured into buying something stupid or useless, and now regretting later on..

What are some of yours?

As usual me being the first poster and thread starter will get the ball rolling. We got a $200.00 powerboard for our home theatre, sure it's very good quality and comes with a warranty for all devices connected to it up to $250,000 (surge protector built in or something).. but what the hell, why did we get that?! I think our house has a surge protector built in, and I've never had a problem with anything electrical dieing from lightning or whatever

Went to Radio Rentals to get a cabinet for our 106cm plasma, ended up walking out with a $600 Pioneer home theater system. Its not something I regret buying but its not what I went there for!

My worst purchase would have closely been the VN Berlina.
Non stop trouble with it.
When i went to go see it i thought "ahh yeah 5 speed VN for 1000, good buy."
That wasnt the case.
