For usb devices, you also might like to check:

The problem is that manufacturers often change design (hardware and software), 
so that early versions work, and later ones don't (or vice versa) without 
changing model numbers or USB ids. So these sites are a guide, and don't 
completely remove the risk of getting a non-useable device.
