    Does anyone recognise this connector? (USB? DisplayPort?)

    One side is standard USB A-Type and the other is this (two different angles):I'm not sure what device it came with, it's been in my cupboard a while.There is a USB 3.0 SS logo on it and it looks very similar to 'USB 3.0 B-Type' but the middle of the connector doesn't seem to match. For example, this is an example of a standard 'USB 3.0 B-Type':On the length of the cable is:AmphenolFRJAWM272530V80CVW-1E326508

    That looks like the end of a USB 3.0 cable that plugs into my Thermaltake BlacX Duet 5G external HDD case, accepts 2 SATA HDDs in combinations of 3.5" and/or 2.5", great for copying data from one to another or most any type file management.

    This does indeed look like a USB 3.0 connector for an external HHD enclosure or a USB 3.0 printer.
