Pavilion DV6-6c43cl laptop - which ports are USB 3.0?

The specs for the DV6-6c43cl say that 2 ports are USB 3.0, and the other 2 are 2.0.  The userguide and manual are unclear, but I'm guessing that the two on the left are the 3.0 ports.  Is this correct?

 

 

Thanks!

Hi

 

The Blue port are the USB 3.0 & The Black ports are 2.0. I believe this has answered your question.

 

 

Let us know how it goes!

Thanks for the prompt reply. 

 

It is hard to see the blue, but I think the ports on the right are blue, and the ones on the left are black.

 

I removed the USB 3.0 drive from the left (black), where I had it, and connected it to the left (blue).  There was a message stating that the device would perform better if connected to a USB 3.0 port - which I didn't see before when I first connected it on the left. 

 

So, I think it's the other way - the Black are 3.0, and the Blue are 2.0.
