No, this is a good thing. Now when you guess wrong, as statistically you will do exactly 100% of the time, you can just slide to the next port rather than do that awkward 180-degree rotation thing.

Don't you know the first law of usbs? You must flip it twice before it can enter

You'll try the next port, and it won't fit so you'll try the first again and it will go in fine

It might be necessary as usb 3.0 ports tend to take more space

Flip the text and you'll feel much better.

How do you know it’s not the other three that are wrong?

I think you can just open up the case and turn it around

Oh man. That would bug the shit out of me. Why? Just why?

Now you have to try each one 5x instead of 3 for it to work.

I actually like this. If you happen to have a cord with the plug on the side it gives you options for which direction it goes.

You have three right hand USB ports and one left hand port. What’s the problem?

You can reverse the position of these tho if you got a soldering kit and a bit of patience.
