As a gamer, I have aquired a vast amount of PC games since I was about 12, and a great deal of gaming hardware to go with it. Gamepads, Joysticks, Racing wheels etc - and I've hardly ever used any of them.

I always resort to keyboard and mouse for first person shooters, but I bought one of the Microsoft Sidewinder Dual Strike Controllers when They first came out.  Did anyone else ever use one of these things?  Quite an inventive device but no comparison for keyb+mouse. I don't think it ever really took off.

The other device i bought was a Microsoft Sidewinder Strategic Commander.  Again its pretty impressive, adds additional lighting to my computer but i've rarely used it! anyone else got one?

what hardware have you bought and never used?

Joystick. (cant remember the model)
I think they are just to bulkey to carry around.
Plus I prefer keypad for gaming.

and a cheap webcam, long time ago.

everything else i bought I have used to some extent.

The only external input hardware i ever use are keyboard and mouse!

Joystick gets used for flight sims as its too awkward with a keyboard and mouse, but thats about the only exception! I have soo many sidewinder gaming devices in my desk drawers that never see the light of day!
