    FYI folks, don't get excited on USB 3.0 until some benchmarks come around. Also remember that if you have a traditional hard drive your peak performance won't be that earth shattering.

    True, but at least it's not a $29 proprietary cable like apple does.

    Honestly, he has a point. I don't think there is a hidden message there, just a good point. I'm glad as well.

    Right because you can't buy generic cables for a couple dollars like the 4-5 I have floating around in the house.

    Woah there, simmer down now lol. It's common fact that Apple is one of the worst for that. No one else puts a chip in their cable so they have to reverse engineer their proprietary cable in order to make generics. That or go through a special training, lol.

    I think the chip thing was bs that Apple did that. But it got reverse engineered quickly. But remember their old cables 30pin was just as pricey.

    I'm more saying that unless you are an apple fanboy, most don't have 4-5 of the same cable lieing around. I like that the note 3 will accept that 2.0 cables I have laying around for everything else I own. Sure it has the 3.0 cable, but it is backwards compatible is all anyone is saying. As opposed to for example the iPhone 5.

    The Note 3 has a micro USB 3.0 port and it will also be able to use older micro USB cables.

    I could not resist because I truly feel xxxxx gouges customers on their proprietary crap. I feel USB 3.0 will be an excellent addition to the GN3 and look forward to having it.

    It did get reverse engineered but it has also been proven that non-xxxxx accessories have damaged devices and xxxxx can void your warranty if proven. I prefer to get a generic USB 2.0/3.0 cable for a few dollars since its standards based.

    It's like Memory Stick all over again, lol. I can't wait to see what usb 3.0 has in store. Interested to see what this does to the Android ecosystem (if more and more adopt the cable).

    So should we be able to see any difference in charging rate while using it with the included wall adapter, or only when hooked up to a USB 3.0 equipped computer?

    Samsung sells a standard micro usb cable for $20, which admittedly is cheaper but still overpriced.




    With Samsung as with Apple, you can buy cheaper from other sources. Granted Samsung isn't proprietary, but still overpriced .

    Ok, but first of all if you are dumb enough to order a microUSB 2.0 cable from Samsung when you can clearly buy one from anywhere for like $2-5 then you deserve to get ripped off. Now that said I went to Amazon.com and order a Samsung 2A charger and a mircoUSB 2.0 cable for like $5 so you can get the a true Samsung OEM product with charging port for 75% less than you suggested and about 83% less than that other company charges for proprietary crap.

    You get what you pay for with chargers on Amazon. Most of them are knockoffs that do not perform like the product they are claiming it is.

    None of those are sold by Amazon, all by third party. Chances of a knock off are high. For stuff that is easy to knock off, I only buy from major retailers like Amazon, Newegg, etc. not through third parties.

    I have gotten an apple lightning cable and charger free from a previous deal, and there were deals for $5 for lightning cable with charger as well. These were not genuine apple, but still decent quality third party from Kensington and Belkin.

    Personally I would prefer buying decent third party over potentially knock off charger /cable

    Actually Amazon does fulfill some of them so they have them in their stock. Not every product is fake, but if I did get one I would know how to spot it and would send it back and notify Amazon.com it was a fake.

    Raptor, I was thinking about adding a pci usb 3.0 card to my desktop, but I don't transfer too many files. Do you think it would be worthwhile or shall I just get by with the 2.0?

    Fulfillment by Amazon means the seller has store the item at Amazon's warehouse and Amazon is handling shipping and handling.

    USB 3.0 is more than worthwhile. The only thing that will be limited is two factors. The speed capabilities of your sata port and hard drive and the speed of the USB 3.0 device. I have a flash drive that has is pushing 200mb write speeds on usb 3.0.

    Although FBA is shipped from amazon warehouse, FBA is still third party. Some of the fakes are really hard to distinguish. Also, it could be a Samsung charger but rejected by Samsung for not meeting their specs.

    I personally don't want to take a chance with knock offs. There was a death linked to a 3rd party charger. Sure, the chances are slim, but to me, not worth it to buy a charger of potentially questionable origin.

    I do understand what it means. I did some digging and found this one listed on Amazon.com's site Amazon.com: Samsung OEM 2.0 Amp Travel Charger with Detachable Micro USB Cable for Samsung Galaxy Note, Galaxy Note 2 II, Galaxy S3 S III, Galaxy S3 Mini & Other Smartphones: Cell Phones & Accessories the useful information is how well the pictures have comments on them noting the difference between fake and original OEM products. Well I took the time and compared the one I got from Amazon.com reseller today not only to the images in the link above but also to my other Samsung 2A charger and cable. Guess what it matches what a true OEM legit Samsung product should look like. So for the price I paid I feel confident in what I got.

    As someone who works in the tech industry I can tell you knockoffs are not worth the risk, I simply offered up what is an acceptable product choices and personally Samsung charging their money is still better than what apple does for a single cable. Samsung offers the charger and a cable for a bit more than just a cable alone from fruit and co.
