We all know about them. What brands promise the most and deliver the least, performance/budgetwise? Guitars, Amps, Cars, etc. Any good which charges a price to be bought. It's preferred if you list specifically what you hate about the product, but it's alright if you just toss it out there. As we may not be aware of the different brands across national boundaries please indicate what the product IS.

I'll get the ball rolling.

Harley Davidson (motorcycles) - Overpriced, low performance engine (except for the VRod), shitty brakes, expensive servicing

bose headphones. their active noise cancelling is really really good, like just about the best option for planes. too bad the headphones can only be active noise cancelling, and they cost a billion dollars.

Okay. I choose Rolex. Gibson are expensive, but they aren't obsolete. Same for Cadillac. Rolex, on the other hand, charges an arm and a leg for a watch which is wildly inaccurate when compared to a $10 chinese wristwatch from WalMart.

most muscle, fitness, fat burning supplements are a total scam. They make so much money fooling people into products they would be better off without and just eating good foods, muscle tech, cell tech, muscle milk, monster milk, etc

Most well known chocolate brands, because the bars are shrinking but the prices are going up. Many multipack bars are barely bigger than those pointless "fun size" ones. And just 5 minutes ago I heard about the changes to Toblerone bars. Outrageous. I am considering a bloody revolution against chocolate companies.

Agree on Beats, and what's irritating is the number of people buying into the manufactured hype. They're for people that don't know shit about sound quality, but hear how 'awesome' the beats are and try them out. Then when they're blasted with bass they think 'oh, cool, so that's what good headphones are like'.

The other day my nephew mentioned he wanted to buy some. Had to try to explain all that without being a dick about it.

Fixed. Disgustingly expensive in the UK.

I'll argue the point on EA and Blizzard. Yeah, I hate EA, but they've produced some great games. They make the best sports games, hands down. Same with Blizzard but not with sports games (Starcraft, WOW, Warcraft, Lost Vikings, etc). But...it's been awhile since either produced something kickass.

Fruit and veg.

Seriously, I can buy more meat than veg... I like more meat than veg though.

Suck the meat of a fruit hard enough for long enough, you get a white creamy sauce at the end of it...

Beats headphones absolutely fucking suck, I literally don't know why anyone buys them for the price they are.

I'd also agree that Apple products are overpriced, but simultaneously (in my opinion) no other smart phone even comes close to the iPhone, so I guess it's not too unjustified.

Nike trainers are too, but then again, no other trainers come close.

Peroni too actually. It's always the most expensive beer in the pub, but it's never the nicest.
