USB Keyboards

USB keyboards that present themselves as a standard HID device should work. The following is a list of specific keyboards known to work and which appear to be fault-free.

  • Logitech Wii wireless keyboard KG-0802
  • Fujitsu Siemens KB SC USB UK
  • Logitech diNovo Mini wireless keyboard with media controls and clickpad 920-000586

USB Mouse devices

USB mouse devices that present themselves as a standard HID device should work. The following is a list of specific mouse devices known to work and which appear to be fault-free.

  • Microsoft Wheel Optical Mouse (wheel and additional buttons not tested)

USB WiFi Adapters

  • Tenda USB 11n adapter on a G network
    • Ralink 2870/3070 driver
  • Netgear WG111v2
    • Realtek rtl8187 chipset
  • 3COM 3CRUSB10075
    • ZyDAS zd1211rw chipset

USB Bluetooth adapters

USB Ethernet adapters

USB UART adapters

The USB UART adapter is used to access the serial console of the Raspberry Pi from a development host such as a laptop or desktop PC. The USB end connects to the PC and the UART header end connects to the USB. While it is possible to connect the USB end to another Raspberry Pi, this configuration has not been tested unless explicitly mentioned against an individual entry below.

Power adapters

  • Alpha board: Stontronics S2097ST switching PSU, 7.5V 1.6A

SDHC cards

Working Cards

  • Adata Class 10 8GB (AUSDH8GCL10-R)
  • Dane-Elec 16Gb class 4
  • Kingston SDHC 8GB class 4
  • Kingstone SD 2GB (no class mentioned)
  • Kingston SDHC 8GB class 4
  • SanDisk Ultra 2GB Class 4 (15MB/s)
  • Sandisk Ultra II SD 2GB class 4
  • Sandisk 2GB (non sdhc but with a circle 2), writes at 3.5 Mb/s
  • Transcend SDHC 8GB class 6

Problem Cards

(Anything class 10 has issues, hopefully it's the fault of Linux and will be fixed soon.)

  • Patriot Class 10 8GB (PSF8GSDHC10)
