idea Erodov Old is Gold Contest 11/11/11 Special! Prizes worth ₹ 26,000/-





We promised something special on 11/11/11, so here we are! A uniqu[e] Old is Gold Gadget contest! (thanks to Vijay for the idea!) The rules are simple. The person with the oldest verifiable electronic gadget in possession matched with a awesome write-up describing 'Why you still own and love it?' will get:

1 x AMD Phenom II 1090T CPU + 1 x ASUS Crosshair IV Formula motherboard

The contest is open to everyone, Indians and people from foreign countries alike

So to win:
  • Like Erodov's Facebook Fan Page and the Contest Page:

    Erodov Facebook Page (Erodov | Facebook)

    Contest Page
  • Share this contest page on your Facebook wall: Simply copy paste the following line and post on your wall:

    I am competing in the [E] Old is Gold Contest 11/11/11 Special! CPU and Motherboard worth ₹ 26,000/- http://www.erodov.com/forums/erodov-old-gold-contest-11-11-11-special-prizes-worth-26-000-a/47101.html

    Make sure you tag Erodov in your post! (use @Erodov)
  • Post in this thread (if you have not registered on Erodov yet, you can do so now): A photo of the oldest gadget you own (it is mandatory for you to take a photo of the gadget now with your Erodov username and 11/11/11 written clearly on a piece of paper. Erodov.com must also be clearly mentioned in the photo.)
  • Post along side the photo: Why you still own and love the gadget? The writeup can be as small or as large as you want. This will be the decider/tier breaker for the contest.
  • A video submission (uploaded to YouTube or Facebook) combining the above TWO is even more welcome. Instead of writing about the gadget, speak to your audience (as they might end up deciding who eventually wins.) Of course you need to mention Erodov.com in the video

I would say posting a video would increase your chances of winning by at least a factor of 3x Also, the gadget may be in a non working condition as well (as long as you can justify in your write up/video why you still own and love it )

Winners are governed by the following fine print, of course:
  • The contest is open for to all members from 11th Nov 2011 to 11th Dec 2011. If you are not already an registered member, you must first register as a member on Erodov.com. Registration is free and can be done here.
  • You can submit multiple entries in the contest.
  • You must follow all the steps outlined above (including liking the contest page and posting about this on your Facebook Wall page.) Inviting your friends to the contest gets your extra brownie points with the judges!
  • Decisions of the contest judges are final. The final winner may be picked using a open public vote! Democracy! Hallelujah!
  • The prizes are not redeemable in cash and must be accepted as awarded.
  • The prizes will be shipped to people residing in India only. Winners from other countries will have to bear any additional shipping and tax costs.
  • The CPU and the motherboard have both been bench marked under extreme cooling for a overclocking event. However, both of them are still under warranty and are fully functional. The products will be shipped as is and no returns/refunds will be accepted.
  • Everyone (inside and outside India) is free to participate in this contest. Erodov Staff members (and their relatives) are not eligible to win in this contest.
  • Facebook is not associated with this contest in any way.

Sharing the following -






This is a old LP and Cassette player by Sony. I think this dates to the 70s or something. ( Cassettes were a novelty back then ).

Why this matters? This is one of the first electronic purchases made by my Dad abroad ( according to my Mom ). And though its been 17 years since he passed away, this has been a prized possession. Its been thru a number of house shifts, international travel and what not. Till about 1998 it was fully operational, but has not been operated since. Has a built in stereo amp, and came with 2 speakers as well, which got spoilt over time due to fungus and termite.

I remember getting whacked by my dad for messing around with the LPs on this player way back, fun times i hold onto when i look at this.



Another share is a pocketwatch that has been shared down in the family ( my grandparents bought it in england or something ).

God damn it. My LP player and tape deck are from 1980-83. I was planning on putting them up, but now there's no point. On the bright side, mine still work. Curiously, the one I have is made by Sony too. I suppose they were the big thing back in the day, eh? I have the XL-150 cartridge with the ND-150G stylus. Is yours the same? If so, have you been able to find a replacement stylus in India? I broke the damn stylus while moving this August.

^^ TBH, no idea mate. The stylus works on this. The belt for the LP motor is gone. And its been ages since i switched this on as well.

Though i did find out the age. Its a 74 model or something.

jd, i suggest you apply some clear coat spray on the watch..to protect it's appearance. i have a 'kobe' spray (400 cc) that i have been using to spray some such stuff.

post some more pics of the watch please

@kidoman, can you be a bit specific about that 'old' part? I mean, say eg.gadget must be manufactured before/during 90's etc etc. Or can we post any gadget which we find it 'old'? 5/6 years back?
Sorry, i got confused.

i suppose you can say that the item should not be available off the shelf today and you should be very fond of it. older the item, better the value. but how you put it across also matters...
