I love it when a listing is wide of the mark. It means there's more chance of a bargain. Which is why we come to be featuring 1970s Patrice Dupont-designed Philips 303 UFO portable record player.

It is dreadfully listed, described as 'circa 1960' and 'Pre Beatles'. But we have featured a few of these designs in the past (all of which have gone for big money in excellent condition), so compare our past listings with this one. I'm sure you'll agree this is a UFO.

The listing details claim it hasn't been tested with all records, so is something of a risk. But at the current price of £5.54, it might be a risk worth taking.

Update: It looks like the auction might have been pulled (perhaps they realised what they had belatedly). As an alternative, another UFO player is up on eBay for just under £50. You can find out about that here (although it does need some work).
