Are the cheap parking sensors advertised on say ebay reliable?

I bought reversing sensors from Maplins and they work well ( £25 for a pair ) - you do have to fit them high enough tough - easy on the Coupe where I fitted them in the reflectors ( pic ) and easy on the 6/gtc where they just fit outside the inside the rear light units but not so easy to fit in the MB because the rear lights are bigger.
