Hi @bigmutt 

 

Thank you for your query, I am happy to assist you!

 

I understand you would like to know what the different ports are. Here is  link to the HP HDX 18 Entertainment PC Maintenance and Service Guide. Please note Chapter 2 page 7 for a description of the external ports.

 

Best of Luck!

Where do I find User guide for HP HDX18-NK148AV

 

Thankyou for the link to the User Guide & Service Manual.   It's what I needed.

 

But now I have another .... question about the eSATA/USB port on the left side of the laptop: yes, it accepts a USB connector but what sort of eSATA connector do I need here?

I've checked all through Amazon;  many cables but I can't tell which one will fit into that port.  Is it a :Type I ?  a Type L?  a Type Male?  a Type Round?  a Type Serial?     These are all the "types" shown on Amazon,  and maybe others too.

 

Please help me sort through this;  I have an external hard drive that's USB 3.0 speed ... and I want to connect it to this port with an eSATA cable to get the 3.0 speeds.    It came with a cable that just has a USB connector on the end of it but I imagine that's for using with a USB 3.0 port  (which this port is not).

 

thanks.

Rick

Hi @bigmutt 

 

Thank you for your reply.

 

 

To use the eSATA cable you would need an eSATA external drive and it is the male connection type. As it is a dual type port you should be able to  connect your USB 3.0 drive but I am unsure if that will provide a higher transfer rate or not.    Please let me know if you do get the higher rate for my own information.

 

Thanks in advance for any information you provide.

 

Good Luck!
