G770 USB 3 Port

I recently picked up this laptop and have been happy with it for the most part. 

 

For the life of me I couldn't figure out which USB port was the 3.0. I read the manuals I examined the ports and nothing stood out seperating one from the other. As a matter of fact all my research says the port should be colored blue which makes sense as my external drive has a blue plug and it is USB 3.0.

 

I finally had to call Lenovo for some help and after a bit of a search on his part he declared that the port closest to the HDMI port is the USB 3.0!

 

Does anyone know if there's a way for me to tell which is which besides the supposed "blue" port?

 

Just curious. Happy computing all!

Re: G770 USB 3 Port

usb 3 are allways blue.
there a combo port in some that use esata that make use of usb as well.(some models)
usb 3 only works on usb 3 items and there few and far inbetween.
other wise it default to usb 2 mode.
usb 3 is really only good for data tranfer items like hard disks pretty much that the only item that need that kinda speed and bandwith.
