Technology that is perfect despite being obsolete?

I have a Samsung YP-U5 mp3 player from 2009 that is absolutely perfect in every way. It's small. Its battery last forever. The sound quality is great. And it has a usb plug integrated so it never needs a cable. It is the perfectly ideal personal music device and yet technology has moved on and, should it ever break, it will be very very difficult to find something new that does its job as well as it does. What are some other devices that were perfect and where future developments and advances only served to worsen them?
