After some googling, I found several indications that this Pluggable hub is quality enough to use with the Raspberry Pi. Pluggable has shown considerable attention to the needs of it's customers, specifically including the Raspberry community, and offered assurances about the performance of the product that other manufacturers can't and don't make. I just received my Pluggable Hub today and so far I am very impressed. I've populated all the ports with various devices, including the Pi itself for power. I've seen no indication of any devices failing and the Pi hasn't crashed so far. The following is what I have connected and running at the moment. Not all of the devices are under heavy use simultaneously at present, but I've tested each device and it all works.
INITIAL LOAD TEST:
USB-IN = The Raspberry Pi (to use the hubs ports with the Pi)
Port 1 = The Raspberry Pi (to power the Pi)
Port 2 = Logitech Wireless RF module (for keyboard and mouse)
Port 3 = Realtec Wi-Fi adapter
Port 4 = Simpletech 40GB Hard Drive (powered by USB, not DC adapter)
Port 5 = Logitech Rumblepad 2 (vibration/force feedback enabled and functional)
Port 6 = DVB-T USB HDTV Receiver
Port 7 = WD External 320GB Hard Drive (powered by DC adapter)
Since this is all working, I'm going to eventually try removing the DC adapter from the second hard drive and plug in a second force feedback gamepad just to see if I can manage to crash anything. I'm fairly optimistic even that won't push it too far. I would really need to make sure every device is actively being used at the same time..and all the rumblepads rumbling...maybe I can crash it...maybe...
These hubs don't leak power back through their mini USB input connector to your PC or device. This is important if you use it as a hub for your Raspberry Pi, Beaglebone, or other development board and you only want power to board when the power cable is connected.
GROUND LOOP FREE PI AUDIO:
The Raspberry Pi people might like to hear is that using this hub will clean up the background noise in your analog audio entirely. Before adding this hub my audio was full of interesting buzzing, humming, whirring, clicking, etc. I had the Pi connected to a power strip more than once, using a power adapter for the Pi as well as one for the hub, resulting in a ground loop. This acted like an antenna, picking up whatever RF noise the Pi and other devices produced. I could hear the mouse move, the mouse wheel spin, and hear the Pi itself as it used the CPU and SD card..all on top of a steady low humming sound. Now that the Pi is connected with the Pluggable Hub, the audio is crystal clear. When I first put on the headphones to check, I thought my audio had stopped working somehow because I didn't hear any noise at all. I had to play a wav file to make sure the audio was working and turned up. I thought that the HDMI connection would still cause a ground loop via the monitors power cord, but fortunately that doesn't seem to be a problem.
They indicate when the hub has power (red) and which ports are connected to devices (blue). They aren't overly bright and they don't flash. The one user image of this product with the LEDs illuminated might lead you to believe they are overly bright, but they aren't.
NO LOOSE CABLES:
You're reading this, so you've probably also read other reviews mentioning a loose USB-IN or DC adapter connection being problematic. This applies to older flawed models, and the problem has been corrected. The power cable fits in flush and tight with the hub, as does the mini USB-IN. The cables are heavy gauge and of reasonable length.
I wasn't too excited about the physical layout of this hub, I wanted a hub with all the ports facing the same direction so it would take up less desk space and have prettier cable management. That being said, all of the ports on this have ample space between them to fit those oddball bulky USB devices like fatty USB flash drives or big giant WiFi dongles with a ridiculous antenna screwed to it. The fact that ports are on the top, left, and right sides means the hub sits stable and flat on a surface even with heavier devices attached. It would sit really nicely on top of a PC tower and allow wires to hang down the sides.
First thing i did was get fingerprints all over it. I would prefer a matte black non-shiney surface that doesn't require delicate polishing after being handled...but this is just being petty now.
The little rubber sticky feet are small and not very good at being sticky. Several times now I've noticed them missing, only to find one on the floor, or stuck to something else. Plugable should provide better rubber feet that actually work.
UPDATE: I now own 3 of these! While the shape, layout, and rubber feet could be a little better...the performance and overall quality can't get much better.
For $20, this is a great buy. I have it hooked up to my 2010 Macbook Pro (not that it would /really/ make a difference, the Mac vs PC thing), and all 7 ports can run seamlessly at the same time. I'm actually using one of the ports with a low power 4-port USB hub for things like my printer, keyboard, etc. and it increases the expandability further. It's worth noting that this hub cannot charge my 3rd generation iPad, but I did not buy this hub to do that - it syncs with my computer fine, and that's good enough for me. When powered, it doesn't seem like it'd have a problem running a hard drive, but I leave my semi-portable external directly attached to my computer.
As for looks, it's quite glossy, but looks marvelous on your desk, especially on wood. There are 2 ports in back, 3 on the front, and a sliding door (where you see the ridges at the top of the device) to reveal 2 more ports. Personally, I much prefer the look of the hub when the door is closed (as pictured), because for some reason, the indicator lights blur whenever the door is open. A very small thing to nitpick at of course, but after all this is a review.
If I ever need more USB ports for my 2010 mac, I'm buying another one of these. Honestly, you can never have enough USB ports.
Update: While the 7-ports are overkill for my needs (not complaining about it ... "too many" is a good thing ... never know what I may need "down the road") .. I JUST ordered another one ... so instead of using the one i have now for my Pi 2 and (not sure if i will even need this with my laptop... I can just leave a hub in both locations. .. looking at other options and the price of getting a second of this exact model ... it was a "no brainer" for me.
I have not tried all 7 ports occupied and stuff like that, but if my second purchase of the same model is not OBVIOUS ENOUGH ... I'd recommend it 100%
