In October 2019, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against HP Inc. for allegedly falsely advertising that its desktop computers – including the Pavilion All-in-One desktop computer – with Universal Serial Bus (USB) 3.0 and 3.1 Gen 1 ports are capable of transferring data at up to 5 gigabits per second and “ten times faster than [the] USB 2.0” transfers data when, according to the complaint, the computers cannot transfer data at the advertised speed.

, Case No. 19CV356819, California State Court – Santa Clara)
