4.0 out of 5 stars Works well in every situation I've tried except one, June 11, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: EasyAcc® Superspeed USB 3.0 4 Port Bus-Powered and Self-Powered 2-in-1 Hub with 3.3 ft USB 3.0 Cable for Mac,iMac,MacBook Pro Air,Ultrabooks,Microsoft Surface RT,Laptops,Raspberry Pi,and any PC,Black (Electronics)
EDIT: Apparently the version I have (4 USB ports, no Ethernet, powered via second USB cable) is no longer sold.

I bought it to work with my Raspberry Pi model A, but it does not seem to work with it at all. The Pi doesn't recognize any devices connected to it or even the hub itself. The hub does work flawlessly with my Linux Mint computer as well as everything else I've tried it with. Onward to find a mini powered hub to work with my Pi.

Did you try it self-powered or bus-powered? The product lists Raspberry Pi it its name, maybe that's misleading?

I only tested this with the Model A, so I'm not sure if it has the same behavior with the Model B.

When I plugged power into it first and then plugged it into the Raspberry Pi the Pi would "turn on" and boot up as if I had plugged it in via the power port. If I powered the Pi up first and then plugged this in nothing seemed to happen. In either case the Pi would not recognize any device plugged into this hub. I've since tested the Pi with the tiny Plugable 4-port powered USB hub and that seems to work very well with none of the odd behavior this device has.

Since I've only tested it with the one unit I've purchased I'm not sure if I just got a bad one. Since it works fine with other computers I didn't return it. I have not purchased another one of these to figure out if its odd behavior is consistent. Therefore I wouldn't yet go so far as to say the listing is misleading. More testing needs to be done (on a Model B for instance and possibly with other Pi operating systems other than Raspbian).
