Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Trust USB 2.0 10-Port Hub for PC, Laptop with UK-Plug (Electronics)
The hub itself is good quality. The ports feel sturdy and it's surprisingly small and tidy. The supplied usb cable and power supply are long enough without being cumbersome. The main reason it didn't get a higher rating from me is the fact that the power supply is only rated for 2A. In practical terms this means that it cannot supply enough power to run 10 usb devices simultaneously.

A side note, I bought this to use with a Raspberry Pi. It works perfectly. I am also able to power the pi from the hub, this means I need only one power source for the pi and the powered hub.

==Update==
This hub seems to cause an issue with the rpi's ethernet. The ethernet connection is not recognised when the hub is plugged in.

I had the same issue with the hub causing ethernet problems... pretty sure it is due to the power. When I connected my Apple Aluminium keyboard and Logitech mouse directly to the RPi and took power from the hub everything worked fine. Connecting everything to the hub caused ethernet issues. Its works fine on my Mac and Linux tower without any problems so I'm guessing that its a power issue for the RPi.
