I bought many toys for my computers over the years and I don't include the computers (9) and laptops (3).

I made a list of my favorite ones.

1- ADVC 100 by Canopus
http://dv411.com/canopusadvc100.html#specs

I bought it to digitize my VHS movies to DVD.
The version I have was purchased on the Internet and it has a button to disable the Macrovison (crap used to prevent making copies). I even used to record movies or shows from Hulu by connecting my two computers and recording on the 2nd one.
That was a great device. I still have the original box and accessories.

2- Fusion HDTV 3 QAM gold from Dvico
http://www.dvico.com/products_mul_hd3.html

I used it to capture HD videos from cable over the air.
I had a great time with this toy!

3- ION Turntable
http://www.ionaudio.com/products/details/ttusb

I bought it to digitize my vinyls via USB on my computer.
It comes with a free editing software to help remove scratches, pops, clicks and background noise.

4 - HD PVR by Hauppauge
http://www.hauppauge.com/site/products/data_hdpvr.html

Even better than my ADVC 100! It can record HDTV straight to my computer and the quality is amazing! My favorite toy so far!

5 - WD Live TV Hub
http://wdc.com/en/products/products.aspx?id=570

I can watch TV online, play games, watch my own videos, play my music, look at pictures, etc.

Here's my next gadget I want to buy!

Okay that's it! What's your favorite computer toy?

I want one of those! LED Spectrum Analyzer.

I used to have a graphic equalizer with a small LED display and I miss it a lot when I listen to music.

Now you can get a much cheaper alternative but some are pretty expensive.
There are more and more of those LED spectrum Analyzer available now and most come as DIY kits.

I bought the small one and I love it! Thanks for the tip!
I connected it to my TV since I watch it more than I listen to music right now so I get to see it in action every day.

I've owned only 2 computers before my correct ones and those were compaq computers before, which I wasn't too fond of as they kept freezing up on me.
