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.

I purchased this USB approximately 7 months ago specifically to power my Raspberry Pi Z-Wave home automation setup (Domoticz) and have had absolutely zero issues. The unit is compact with the USB ports spaced out evenly with three on one side, two on the other and the final two on top under a handy sliding cover. LEDs reflect the current state of any devices connected (blue for actively connected to the hub, red for the hub power supply).
The hefty 15w/5v/3a power supply guarantees enough juice flows to power up most needed items. Please note: using this as a charger is not supported and most likely will not work. It is a USB hub and is designed to be used as such. And as such it does a bang-up job.
Currently, I am using the hub to connect and power a "Aeon Labs DSA02203-ZWUS Z-Wave Z-Stick Series 2 USB Dongle" (the Z-Wave controller) and a "Long Range WiFi USB with Antenna for Raspberry Pi" both of which require adequate voltage/amperage which the Raspberry Pi alone can not provide. Originally, I also connected a USB thumb drive (used for the Pi) and was back-powering the Pi itself successfully with no power issues whatsoever. I later opter to remove the Pi and USB drive for other reasons pertaining to my home automation setup and popped this puppy along with the Pi on the wall in my utility room.
The only downside I can think of after 7 months of continuous use is the lack of mounting ports on the back. However, as it was not really intended to be used in this fashion it's more or less a moot point. Need a USB 2.0 powered hub at a decent price without all the fancy-schmancy logos and buttons and flashy LED glitter lights? This is the one you want.
All in all, if you need a decent quality, high power USB 2.0 hub for your power-hungry gizmos this is certainly the way to go.
Even for technical folk like me, there is a little bit of a learning curve, especially since no documentation is provided in the package. Spend the time reading the information on their website and understanding what kinds of devices can be powered by each port, and spend the time determining if this will provide enough power for all of your devices. The key is understanding the wattage/amperage of each device being plugged in.
I currently have a Bamboo tablet, mouse, powered external hard drive, multifunction printer, and 3 USB charging cables (usb micro, usb mini, and Apple lightning) plugged into mine, and it never hiccups. If you have a high-powered device such as a tablet, you'll want to pay special attention to the specifications on these devices, especially since Plugable has many options.
Specifically, my original purchase had a bad power port, so the hub was essentially unpowered even though the blue lights were coming on. Once their customer service determined that the red light wasn't coming on to indicate that the hub was powered, they sent me a replacement very quickly. Zero issues since.
