I bought an early one about 4 years ago and had problems. I think many
of them then presented themselves as custom USB devices and included
Windows drivers. Since then, manufacturers have figured out that it's
much cheaper to present them as USB mass storage and piggyback on the
driver support built into the OS - that way they get Linux and Mac
compatibility for free. I haven't seen one that doesn't work for a long
time now.
