    I grabbed a combo USB 3.0/3.1 card for my server so I could hook up my USB 3 external hard drive with the hopes I could hook up a monitor via the USB 3.1 port on it soon.

    Yes, my next cell phone.

    As for computer stuff, I am pretty set but don't have any USB-C anything. That may change with Ryzen though.

    I did with my Note 7. I'm sure the Note 8 will have it. Hoping to get one when they come out.

    No, I'm not using any devices using the USB Type-C connectors at this time. I don't have any plans to buy anything using this technology for a while. I could sure use this power supply though.

    Yes, will likely be replacing my Samsung S5 this year (and that will likely have USB Type-C). Also, The Nintendo Switch has a USB-C connector and I'll likely be suckered into getting one of those.

    Not at this time, but my next phone in 2018 will have it as default I hope. If more mainstream devices, like keyboards, mice, scanners, etc., were to use it then I would, but I don't use external storage devices (besides my phone) in any way that particularly benefits from more than USB 2 speeds.

    I am not using any C type devices at the moment, will probably be using C type devices in the future like external hard drives and phones.

    Had usb type-c for my note 7 and the gear vr. Motherboard also has usb c (Gigabyte z170mx) and i have a usb c cable waiting on my desk for something to plug in. Could use this power supply, my hx520 is a little long in the tooth for my soon to be vr station. need a little more juice for that gtx1080.

    I don't have any Type-C devices and only the laptop has a Type-C port ( a single one at that) so I don't plan on using any for some time.

    my laptop has one and i used it with a display port adapter to get another monitor running. I will probably get a usb hub as more electronics convert over.

    I already have a Google Pixel XL that uses USB Type C, and I plan on getting a USB Type C Docking Station for my laptop eventually.

    Aww man. I just noticed, I probably don't qualify for these anymore :p

    Just for the data point, I'll submit my usage of USB Type C ports though.

    My last two phones have used USB Type C, the Nexus 5x and Pixel. Right now I'm hooking them up using adapter cables, but once USB C becomes more common on motherboards and cases, it would be nice to be able to connect them natively.

    My wife has a LG v20 and I will likely get one soon too. Either that or another phone with a type C connector. I am also building a new desktop PC for my son soon which will have it too.

    I have a Pixel XL that is Type C, and I hope my next MB has Type C. Room for more connectors, and I love not having to get the plug orientation right.

    Nope. I don't have any peripherals or devices that use it and I don't plan on buying any devices that use the port. Matter of fact, I only just realized (yesterday) that my recent build has a USB Type C connector. I guess I'm behind the times.

    No, I have no type C devices. I never really use external devices so until I buy a phone with it, I probably won't have any type C stuff.

    Not currently and probably not for a while. Hasn't really been adopted a ton yet and none of my PC's have the connector.

    Am I using one? Nope.
    Am I planning on it? Yes, I may be a dinosaur but my arms are long enough for a USB-C cable and I will be upgrading my cell phone next year.
