USB 3.0
is there any NMT which already support USB 3 ? which one ?
If Not yet, when ?

Is there any benefit in performance/ video/ sound quality if we have USB 3.0 ? (NMT and also the harddisk)

Thanks

RE: USB 3.0
Pch internal bus maxes out at 50% the speed of usb2. No advantage on this hardware. However, usb3 drives are backwords compatible so you can enjoy the added speed when you copy from your pc directly to the drive and the pch will be able to play it fast enough to enjoy troublefree playback.

RE: USB 3.0
It wouldn't add anything to the speed but it would give the marketing guys something to push.

Do you think that we would see loads of 'it says it has USB3 speed but can't transfer as fast as my PC can using USB3'?

I don't know where these responses are coming from. I certainly would think if I plugged a 32GB USB 3.0 pen drive into my PC to quickly transfer a file where the extra speed is going to be important, being able to play that on extender would be feature. ASUS already have it.

RE: USB 3.0
You need to recall: this is a media player. The maximum bandwidth for playing super HD content is what? 10Mbit per second? 50Mbit? The USB 2.0 spec says there is a maximum of 480 Mbps.

We can always use a faster bus to copy files around, but this is overkill for playing media files.

No one is saying you can't use USB3 on your PC to transfer content to a USB stick. I have a ASUS P8P87 mobo with 2xUSB3 rear ports and a 19pin USB3 header on it, no one produces 19pin USB3 leads but that's another story (Lian-Li has a adapter but none in EU for motnhs apparently).

What we are saying is that the media players do not have the I?O bus speed to achieve USB2 top speeds so what is the point adding USB3?

RE: USB 3.0
OK I got it.
so USB 3.0 on the NMT is not adding any performance
but only adding price.

But USB 3.0 External harddisk have benefit from faster copying from the PC.
so just buy the USB 3.0 harddisk and use it on the current NMT, right ?

RE: USB 3.0
Thanks chris57 I didn't even think I could plug a USB 3.0 Type A into the NMT, I didn't think they were compatible. Good to know.

RE: USB 3.0
USB3 is backwards compatible, so you can use a USB3 device on a USB2 or even USB1.1 slot.
