Ranking Connector Types

🚨Tech Controversy Corner🚨

This is a weird one that almost no one cares about, but it’s been on my mind lately for some reason. 🤷‍♂️

Ranking Cable Connectors! Strictly on the physical connector itself, not its speed or capabilities.

Disclaimer: 100% opinion and nowhere near a complete list

Data Connectors (speed not a factor)

  1. Lightning
  2. USB-C
  3. USB Type A / USB 3.0 Type A
  4. Firewire 400
  5. USB Mini A
  6. Serial
  7. Parallel
  8. USB 3.0 Type B
  9. USB Micro A
  10. USB Type B
  11. eSata
  12. Firewire 800
  13. Thunderbolt
  14. USB 3.0 Micro B

Video Connector (video quality not a factor)

  1. USB-C
  2. HDMI
  3. DisplayPort
  4. DVI
  5. BNC
  6. VGA
  7. Apple Display Connector
  8. Component
  9. Composite
  10. Mini DisplayPort
  11. Mini VGA
  12. Micro DVI
  13. Mini DVI
  14. S-Video

The interesting thing is that we are finally at a place in time where a single cable can do everything! USB-C is great and I am trying like hell to get everything I own converted over to this connector.
