Sandy Bridge Posted April 4, 2022 Share Posted April 4, 2022 Since we're in the USB A to C industry transition, I thought it would be interesting to see which types people are using in Q2 2022. We're also at the point where according to the Wikipedia chart, there are 14 competing standards of USB connector types... which leads to the obligatory XKCD: For simplicity's sake, however, I've left the poll at the three most common types and glossed over the differences between standard/mini/micro and changes in connectors between generations. If someone else wants to start a poll with all 14 types, go right ahead! ----- I use Type A devices the most. Mice, keyboards, USB drives, webcams, microphones... all the things I use most frequently use type A, and I'm almost always using a Type A device. I also use Type B devices. My printer is 2.0 Type B, and my external hard drives are USB 3.0 Type B. Both my desktop and my laptop have a type C port, but I don't have any Type C devices. On rare occasions I also use a mini/micro connector, and I think most of those are type B... but those are rare occurrences and I'm not nearly as good at identifying the mini/micro ports just by looking at them.
