Poor Quality Recorded Video Demonstrated?

I accidentally found this video, while dong some research, and it has me baffled... a little. On the Website, it stated "BEST DEFENSE IN THE NEWS! Check out the quality of the image in this news segment". I clicked on the YouTube video ready to be amazed and I was completely baffled. The video I thought was pretty much worthless, besides the fact it showed a human breaking into a convenience store. I found the video to lack details. Am I being a judgemental jerk, that has had too much coffee, or does anyone else see a value to this video? I'm not familiar with the product which seems to upscale. Anyway, instead of buying an upscale DVR, wouldn't it be just better to spend the money on better cameras? I know convenience stores are notorious for cost-effective solutions...but how is a shoddy image going to help you or the police out when it comes to details?

Here is the quote on the Website that got my attention.

BEST DEFENSE IN THE NEWS! Check out the quality of the image in this news segment. It was taken using our basic digital video recorder! The cameras were actually old existing cameras, but with the new DVR they still produce high quality images. Call today for information on upgrading your own DVR or time lapse VCR to the latest technology.
