Probably our original Sky+ HD tv box (300GB HDD) from around 2007. Still used every day.

Not sure if it counts as "personal electronics" but I use a 25+ years old Jen wah-wah guitar pedal about 2 or 3 days a week :-)

@beachthunder: Wow. What's this like? I often fantasise about a world where smart phones never came along. Things seemed easier.

My Ps3 and my Zune probably. I'm still super salty at Microsoft for dropping the ball super hard with the Zune, they're great.

I have 160gb iPod Classic that I take good care of as it has been discontinued. If they had a newer model with similar capacity, I'd replace it instantly but everyone is clearly moving in a streaming direction.

I still like MP3s GODDAMIT

Up until about a year ago, I was still using my Cowon D2 MP3 player. It was about ten years old. It had the kind of battery life we only dream about these days: 40-something hours a charge. It never even died. I retired it and replaced it with my LG Optimus G Pro smart phone when I upgraded to a Nexus 6P. The G Pro is now the oldest thing I regularly use at ~5 years.

Do microwaves count? If so my microwave is 30 years old and probably irradiating the hell out of me.

I am currently suffering through my life because I have to use my Samsung Galaxy S3 as my everyday smartphone. (Yeah yeah...first world problems).

I'm still using Galaxy S2 - haven't felt the need to upgrade it.

I still use the phone I bought when looking for work over a decade ago. And by use, I mean I turn it on and answer a call once six months.

Old ass Magnavox CRT tv. That's how little I watch television, just turn it on to see local news for 10-15 minutes in the morning and that's all the use it gets!

I have a 2nd gen kindle that I use every day and a CRT TV that's probably 20+ years old in my bedroom but I never watch TV so I don't know if that counts.

I have a Wii hooked up to a 4:3 Philips CRT tv, but I've only used it a few times this year... so maybe that doesn't count.

Other than that my main work laptop (I work from home) is a giant Asus monstrosity from summer 2011, it is really showing its age and I'm hoping to replace it this year.

Cowon iAudio 7 mp3/flac player from 2007 for music and podcasts when travelling. Battery life is 50-60 hours or something crazy like that.

Nothing that old...I have a 32" Samsung HDTV that I got in 2010 that I still use as my primary gaming TV. Also an iPod Touch from 2011 that's my main music player. Everything else I cycle pretty regularly.

Before I got the Samsung, my gaming TV was a 12 inch CRT from the 80s. Played 170 hours of Oblivion and a ton of Halo 3 multiplayer on that piece of shit.

I use the same Sony digital alarm clock that I got when I first started waking myself up rather than my parents shaking me out of bed. That was almost 25 years ago and the thing is still in tip top shape. If I wake myself up 5 days a week and conservatively say that I hit snooze 3 times a day, that's almost 20,000 whacks on the snooze button. Never had an issue.

A year or two later I got a Sony stereo for my room complete with 5-disc (5!) CD carousel. It's been a while since I've used it but it's also still kicking as far as I know.

Oh, man I had an Sony alarm clock-radio I bought in 1984 8th grade that I used until graduate school in 1999. It was pretty much my "get up for school" alarm clock throughout all my REAL school years. When I bought it in 1984 I put brown duct tape (to match teh wood grain plastic) on the snooze bar because I learned "snooze" was the enemy. From 8th grade through grad school it was set to annoyingly loud and put on the opposite side of the room, so I was stunned awake and had to run to the other side of the room to shut it off.

@monkeyking1969: You're totally right about putting it across the room. Alas, my wife has vetoed my efforts in that regard. She's great, but insists on being able to snooze.

I still have a PS2 Slim hooked up (it's not like it takes up much space) but I don't use that daily. Maybe my phone? It's at least a decade old.

Checking my Amazon order history...

I bought a Samsung 55" 1080p LED TV on July 9, 2009 that I've been using every day. It cost $3600 back then. (Before that TV, I was using a Sony WEGA 36" flat screen CRT.) I've been looking at replacing it with a 65" 4k HDR OLED this year for pretty much that same price (not counting inflation).

The next oldest thing I still use is the Blu-ray player (July 18, 2009, before I had a PS3). The combination of the TV, Blu-ray player, and a copy of Planet Earth, convinced my friend to buy a new HDTV (they were still called that) the next day.

A normal ass iPod with the click wheel and everything. It's definitely made of sturdier stuff than my phone so I don't worry about dropping it.

Though come to think of it my PS3 is older.

for Christmas of 1998, my mom got me a travel clock that links to a satellite to get the correct time and i just had to pull the rechargeable batteries from it to put in my mouse so i could play games. the clock still works and i use it as my bed side clock/alarm.

My PS3, I suppose. I've had the fat 80gb model sticking around since 2009 and though it has acted up strangely a few times during all these years, it still works good enough to play games without any trouble.

My folks still do have my old alarm clock at their place, a silly Charlie Chaplin thing. That thing still worked last year when I tested it and I think I got it in the early 90's.

Been playing through Fire Emblem on my DS that I got Christmas of '04. But come to think of it, I just used my PS2 (fat, not slim) to watch a DVD. Also, I think I've been using the same alarm clock since 2000. It's kinda scary to see how disposable technology is. On the Waypoint podcast they briefly talked about what happens to TVs after they're disposed of. seemed like a depressing topic.
