Is USB 2.0 still good?

Can I use USB 2.0 cable on a 3.0 port?

Yes. You’ll encounter no problem doing so since USB 3.0 port is backward compatible, which means it is designed to work well with older versions of USB. However, such a combination will only work at USB 2.0 speeds whose upper bound of data transfer rate is 480 Mbps.

When choosing a USB 2.0 cable, consider the following factors:

Compatibility: Ensure the cable is compatible with your devices. You can generally find compatibility information from the cable’s specifications.

Durability: How many bends can the cable withstand? Look for cables with features intended to enhance durability like braided nylon covering.

Cable Length: Lastly, ensure the cable is long enough to reach the devices you want to connect without being excessively long, as longer cables can result in data signal degradation.
