How long do your USB devices last?
 
So, here's a pet peeve of mine: USB devices that just up and decide to stop working in a particular port.

WD's MyPassport 2TB, for example. It's a USB 3.0 device, and no longer works when plugged into the USB 3.0 port on my PC. It doesn't work in a second PC's USB 3.0 port. It works just fine with the USB 2.0 ports.

A Kingston thumb drive I have, a USB 2.0 small one, once stopped working in this particular PC, but it worked in all others. For some reason, it's begun working in this one again.

Another Kingston, the Ultimate G2 3.0. Works once in a while when plugged into the USB 3.0 port.

These issues are not related to a specific PC, or a specific USB protocol (3 or 2). Have any of you ever experienced this madness?

I've had PC's that gave me USB fits. Things would work then not work then clain it wasn't a USB 2.0 port. USB sucks IMO.

I have a hard time disagreeing. Though I have a hard time thinking it's USB when it could just be shit controllers.

True, it could be the controllers. These were all part of the chipsets. 2 nV and one Intel.
