Default Any of these "knock offs" worth it?

I bought a Kodak Zi8 today (should be here Wednesday) but was looking on ebay at various models - Jazz, etc.

I noticed a bunch of no name camcorders that had some pretty low price tags and good features. Most of them shipped directly from Hong Kong.

My question is this - are any of them actually worth it?

Well there are so many to choose from, I think a canon may do just fine as a still with the vid capabilities. but unsure o the models as so many are new, etc, etc

the GVS does a nice Job a bit bulky to some the sanyo Xacti's my Mom,and here friend a canon both did amazing.
