The only one that immediately comes to mind is the Yamaha FB01. In its defense, it was very cheap...

Uh well, here comes: Korg Legacy MS-20 (even two times, bleeeeh), Rapture (ok, was dirt cheap on a sale, catches virtual dust now), Dune 2 (really, shoot me, doesn't do ANYTHING for me), Audjoo Helix (sound is ok, but, i dislike the GUI, and it also seems a bit dated by now, sound and operating wise). That's about it, i guess. Anything else was a well considered buying decision, so, no surprises there, really. :)

D16 phoscyon

It's fun as f*ck and sounds great, but I don't know what to do with a 303. It's a sound that just never finds its way into my projects and programming the thing sucks the hours away. It's the worst thing ever for getting shit done.

Absynth. Never use it. Its interface issues are not that it's too technical or anything, it's just a bad interface. Fiddly, tabby, inefficient

:D

I know what you mean. I keep it, because i feel like owning a good TB-303 emu (which it arguably is), but, somehow feel like the 303 sound is too outdated and minimal for my music. Well, maybe i will dig it out at some point, and have some fun with it. Surely a good plugin, although, like all the D16 stuff, a bit tedious on the sequencer programming side.
