Shiny new gadgets are all well and good, but there are occasions where a tech product gets better with age. There's time for the kinks to be ironed out, software support can get better, and as the years go by, it is oddly satisfying to see a device that should have died a long time ago power-up as though it were fresh out the box.

We're curious to know what oldies but goodies are still chugging along, so for this week's question we're asking: which of your tech product have aged well? Let us know using the comments facility below.

I have a fishing reel that is older than myself, it have also served me well

It is technology ! you try winding 100 M of line onto a stick or whatever, and with a 15 KG cod in the other end.
My old LG television have also served well, it is now over 10 years old, and still work i am sure but it is now a backup screen for my friend.
Personally i no longer have a TV as they are allowed to spew out too much garbage in this day and age.
My Micro Nikkor which is over 40 years old,and still get's used sometimes.
It depends what you call Gizmos. I've got a 20yr old 18v Bosch SDS Drill which is still going strong. I've also got a 30-40yr old Minolta CLS Rangefinder Camera which still works a treat. Oh & I mustn't forget my beloved 20yr old Sennheiser HD600 Headphones which are as good as new & used everyday.

Those take Leica M lenses don't they??
The unsung hero, my Sony ICF-C273L Radio alarm clock. The dual alarm is a godsend when you have to get up early. 13 years old, still works perfectly fine with no issues. That's possibly the only piece of tech that's still in use that can be classed as old.
