If you are into buying used things, which ones have you gotten your money worth because you use it so often?

For me:
-Sony NEX camera
-Shure SRH940 headphone
-Nexus 7

I use the Nexus 7 and SRH940 daily, and the camera at least a few times a week.

STILL driving your first car? Noob!

I've had 3 cars in 3 years, used of course.

1st car - Chevrolet Camero
2nd car - Mercedes SL500 R129 Series
3rd car - Audi A3 - Current car

Best car I've had so far was obviously the Mercedes, hands down!

My car is my most used second hand purchase.

I bought it nearly new at a knock down price, saved 8K on the original price.

VW Passat 1.9TDI from 1997 still goes at around 5 litres for 100 km
Seat Ibiza 1.9 SDI from 2004 goes even lower as 4 litres for 100km
My Thinpad X200s from 2008 upgraded the hard drive to a SSD, does everything and more.Runs MintKDE flawlessly.
All second hand, best purchases ever.at least for me.

^^^ LMFAO
Why didnīt you checked her "mileage"? Iīm always going "under the chasis before" purchasing something that might be second handed

I rarely buy second hand, in most cases people here dontīt know how to preserve their old/used things Iīm willing to buy second hand. Also I never sold something I had used for more than few days, I find myself easily attached to all kind of technical stuff I use on daily basis, when they become old/slow/useless I clean and store them somewhere in basement of my house and buy new/modern replacement. I don`t have heart to sell my old stuff for few bucks to some unknown person.

Never bought a used electronical item.

Still using my first car. Peugeot 206, 3000 euro, 70.000 KM. Some idiot smashed into it and ran off. Cops managed to trace him and got 2300 euros out of it and repaired it with my dad.

So now I'm practically driving a 700 euro car which only had 70.000 km mileage and I will continue to do so until it falls apart. Saving up to buy an apartment.

Out of all my friends I look the poorest but when you would check the bank accounts, you'd see a different story.

Honestly, I buy a ton of used stuff. Only thing new in my current computer build at all is my keyboard, mouse, and psu. Which I got all 3 for a steal!
I have quite good luck with buying used stuff.
I build my mustang with alot of used stuff as well. Parts from the junkyard.

An example, parking brake stradle cable new $76
Junkyard $6. And is practically near new condition.

My car.... It was "ridden hard and put up wet" but it's been reliable for the most part. Only needed a few minor repairs. Alternator, fuel pump, clutch master cylinder, shocks, struts, rear cross-member, heater-box and evaporator, and a reseal of the rear body. Wife, though damaged and slightly used, was in better shape when I got her....

I just bought a used motorcycle. Low millage, mint condition. Saved me ~ 30% compared to buying brand new. Since it's my main way of transportation, I'll be using it a lot.

I rarely buy second hand items. Once I bought a used 8600GT and it died only after 6 months.

Most used (relatively large purchases in my eyes)
~ 1997 Honda Prelude with 142k miles on it (sold it)
~ 2009 Subaru Legacy 34k miles on it (love my Legacy I just wish it was a GT)
~ 2000 Gibson SG Standard in Ferrari Red
~ My Gtx 570, bought it from my friend after he had it for 1-2 years. I've never bought a used pc component beforehand.
