Main differences between USB 2.0 and 3.0

  • Hi, people often ask about the MAIN and most important differences between USB 2.0 and 3.0.

  • Hi Eddie,

    We have a comic here that highlights that it's faster: http://en.community.dell.com/dell-groups/dell_global_sales_training/m/essential_dell/20044389.aspx 

    Also I found this article on Yahoo news, it's a little old, but it does highlight the main differences.

    From what I know about them it's mostly speed.  I will ask about the technical differences, and get a more thorough answer for you ASAP. 

    Hope that helps in the meantime.

    Emily

  • Thank you Emily! Appreciated!

    Do computers with 3.0 USB ports need to be regularly updated with some type of firmware?
