Question

Which one of the USB ports supports USB 3.0?

 

How can I tell which port on my ThinkPad T420s is a USB 3.0?

Answer



Originally on earlier systems with USB 3.0 the ports are identified by the blue insert.  See illustration below of a typical ThinkPad USB port configuration.

On later models the blue insert was replaced with a black insert and the following symbol to identify USB 3.0 ports;

most still use the blue color as it is a de facto standard
