Default Concord EYE Q 4330 Z

Does anyone have an idea about 'Concord EYE Q 4330 Z' ?
It is a 4.1 MP,Sony CCD sensor,6 fach zoom and costs only 250.
Do you think it will be as good as or better than Nikon coolpix 2100 or Canon A60.

The photos I've seen from other Concord Cameras have been very poor in quality, compared to cameras from the "mainstream" manufacturers (at least, IMO -- others may feel differently).

There are many other things besides the sensor that make one camera better than another:

Optical quality of the lens, Metering, Focus accuracy, Processing Speed, Image Processing Algorithms that impact white balance, color saturation, noise levels, contrast, sharpness, etc.

IMO, comparing the Concord to a Nikon (or Canon) is like comparing a Yugo to a Mercedes. Sure, you may be able to find a way to stuff a mercedes engine in the Yugo, but that isn't going to help the ride quality, handling, transmission capability, realiability, etc.

Could this new Concord be a bargain? Maybe, but I sure wouldn't bet on it.
