As I understand it, some work, some don't. Best either to test, or to get
information about what locally-available brands are compatable. (I'd offer
advice, except that all the brand names in Japan are different.)

We could really, really use a USB-compatability database for NetBSD.
Right now, buying almost any USB device beyond a keyboard or a mouse is
just a big gamble. I'd say that close to half of the USB devices I've ever
bought don't work.
