In car accident cameras.

Are the cheap in car accident cameras on eBay really any good?
I was thinking of getting one because I seem to meet so many Knobs on the road.
Just tonight I met one such knob, he even got out of his car when we came to a roundabout to tell me that I was driving like a lunatic, too close behind him (actually I was on the anchors thinking why has this knob just changed lanes and braked in front of me taking up all my space thank goodness I am not towing)
If anyone has used a good cheap one please let me knowor if any are really sh1t.
With my 70 mile a day commute I could have a really entertaining collection of Knobs on video How do professional drivers not blow a gasket on a daily basis?

I bought one 3 months ago. plugged it in and it works. Pic quality not HD but adequate for your purpose. Just comes on as you drive and saves video at regular intervals.
Came from China in 2 weeks from ordering.

gonna give one a try, for 20 its worth a risk I reckon one could have saved me a lot of hassle several times by now. just to prove i wasn't reversing up the road at 20MPH, away from a red light into the car behind!

Haven't got one myself, but someone on another (car) forum recently posted links to an interesting review site after a similar question:

"Take a look at the reviews that this chap does - first his youtube site: Car Cameras - YouTube

This here is his own site: Techmoan - Techmoan "

Again, don't know how accurate the reviews are, but interesting viewing, e.g. whether the camera quality is actually good enough to pick up car registration numbers.
