Survey: PSP is UK's 'most returned gadget'

iPad, 360 and iPhone 4 not far behind

Sony's PlayStation Portable is the hardware purchase most likely to be returned in the UK, claims a recent survey.

UK discount site myvouchercodes polled 1833 users (though its methodology has not been revealed), finding that 6.2 per cent of all returned tech purchases over the last year were PSPs.

The iPad constituted 4.9 per cent, Xbox 360 4.8 per cent and the latest model of iPhone 4.5 per cent. The rest of the top 10 list of returned purchases comprised non-gaming consumer electronics.

34 per cent of those who had returned hardware within the last year blamed it on 'disappointment.'
