Hi all
Anyone tried USB3 devices yet IN NATIVE USB3 Mode (not USB 2 compatability).

I'm thinking of getting a couple of USB3 devices but if they only will work in USB2 mode then the extra expense IMO won't be worth it as USB2 speeds seem to be a lot better in W8 than W7.

Cheers
jimbo

Sadly I don't have any native USB3 devices... I'd love to know if they work as well.
