    If you have a Poundland near you, guess how much they are each!

    It always makes me laugh when I see the bars of cadbury chocolate in Poundland for 99p and the newsagent two doors down sells the same ones for 79p...

    I think someone is fleecing you there, doesn't sound like poundland to me, sound like the 99p stores.

    On my wages, it's more like somewhere I shop out of necessity .

    Though you can pick up some OK kit in there for - well, a pound.

    Have to say that the "Zodiac" store in town, while generally not as cheap, does a surprising array of PC and AV leads as well as tools for knock-down prices. Mind you, in nearby Portsmouth there is something similar called "Mr Cheap" (apparently "there's none cheaper") that I'm too scared to go in as the missus would be inclined to start calling me just that!

    I normally steer well, well clear of Pundland and the link for anything electrical - you get what you pay for
    Its ok for cheap leads though I suppose

    Always find those stores to be vastly dissapointing - really dont get the bargains you expect. I mean its no surprise, they have to make a profit so the goods are worth far less than a pound - and it shows

    I live right near Mr Cheap! Never ventured in there though but do find the sign above the shop mildly amusing!

    The Signalex stuff in Poundland is actually pretty good - the USB card readers from there are the only cheapo ones I've had that haven't packed up on me in a month and work nicely at full speed and with SDHC cards.
