Top 10 Gadgets You Can Actually Afford

Now that we’ve drooled over the Top 10 Gadgets for the Filthy Rich, it’s time to stop playing Trump and return to this thing called “reality.” This decidedly thriftier zone isn’t such a bad place, since there are plenty of gadgets out there priced for the everyman (and his poorer cousin, the college student). And inexpensive isn’t the same a cheap.

With very few exceptions, standalone DVD players don’t cost more than $100. All the more reason to spend a few bucks more than you would on the no-name player Wal-Mart is practically giving away for a reliable, good-looking component like Philips’ do-it-all 642/37. In addition to the discs most players can handle (DVD, CD, MP3-CD, JPEG), this supports DVD+R/RW and discs burned with DivX and MPEG-4 video, meaning you can watch those 100% legal video downloads on your big-screen TV.
Price: $55
