A blue connector does not USB 3.0 make.

Can’t say I would know whether my blue connectors actually go fast…

Another fun USB discovery I recently made: For some reason, my USB headset doesn’t work when I plug it into my laptop …except when I plug it into one particular USB port. There it works reliably. I have no idea how or why.

Due to cost saving its common for a new laptop to some ports of different USB specification now. If you look closely some may be marked by a different logo like s.s (super speed I think)

A headset should be perfectly happy running on an old USB 1.1 interface though, the bandwidth requirements are very low.

Yeah, it’s also an old headset. Probably even preceeds USB 3.0…
