Default mp3 fm transmitters

are these any good? if you guys don't know what they are they are a device that attaches to your mp3 player and transmits song via fm stations on your radio in your car/stereo.

i want it for my car because i have a 6 cd changer and its annoying as hell lol. i found a fm transmitter for 5 bux it was a simple one, one jack to my mp3 player and another to the cigarette lighter for continously power.

here this is what i was looking at http://cgi.ebay.com/Wireless-Car-Ste...QQcmdZViewItem

Sweet! i was thinking of getting one but I ended up getting a cassete adapter instead, i wasnt sure if the sound quality would be good. Let me know how it is. I might pick one up also.

The sound quality on a cassette adapter will generally be much better, so if you have a tape player in your car, go for one of those.

Those cheap FM transmitters aren't usually very good quality, but maybe you'll get lucky.
