Xbox 360. What a joke the first 2 (3?) years of this console was. Rushed to market to beat the PS3, was plagued from day one by shoddy power supplies and horrible heating issues that caused the CPU/GPU to come lose from the motherboard. Nasty cheap DVD drives that damage disks.
MS only managed to avoid being sued into the ground by issuing a 3 year warranty extension for the motherboard issue.

Photocopiers, they all seem to have an Arthur Scargil mentality, especialy when I want to use them.

If you count Network Managers then they are the most unreliable product of modern society, some of their decision making leaves a lot to be desired.

Teachers - no matter how meticulously you test something, how idiot proof you make it, the dribbling imbeciles will find a way to screw it up.

Seconded - you never seem to be able to do anything to a photocopier without looking like you've been down a coal mine... and thing always goes on strike when you need it most. Precise make and model is irrelevant.
