I have yet to see a single device that uses a USB3 A to B cables. There must be some, but all the printers and scanners I have come across either use USB 2 or ethernet/wireless.

Yeah I bought one, didn't realise that the ends different for USB3! Oh well one for the cupboard!

Genuine question: in what sense is this premium?

Never heard of USB hard drives, then?

Hard drives? Those things that exclusively use micro-USB 3 even for desktop versions, you mean? What about them?

External DVD drives for a start...

Which ones? Genuinely interested as I have only ever seen USB 2 ports on those, particularly as those are old technology that does not even saturate USB 2 bandwidth.

Agreed, useless cable for 99% of people out there. I have also never seen a device that uses the b end. (The usb 3.0 b end won't fit an old usb 2 socket)

Hmm, I must be imagining my buffalo drive has a full size USB port on it, unless you're wrong. And seeing as I'm looking at it right now, you're wrong.

Full size USB3 or USB2? Does the socket take this plug, then?

My Buffalo hard drive doesn't.

I bought one the last time this was posted, just in case I ever need one.

FFS! So because yours doesn't have a full size USB 3 port on it, it doesn't exist?
