R7000P usb 3.0 port

I'm looking at getting an external hard drive for the 3.0 port and one that I am looking at states it comes with a "USB 3 Micro B" cable.  Is that compatible with the router's 3.0 port as-is (no adapter)?

   A typical USB cable has _two_ ends.  What's the USB connector on this
(unspecified) "one that I am looking at"?  What's the USB connector on
the router?  Does the cable fit both?

 

   Or should I just do a Web search for "one that I am looking at", and
see for myself?

Just trying to find out if the R7000P router has an A port or a micro B port.    The specs just say 3.0.

   It often helps to ask the question whose answer you seek.

 

   The USB connectors on these routers are Type A.  The pictures in the
User Manual are not great, but should be clear enough.  (Visit
http://netgear.com/support , put in your model number, and look for
Documentation.  Get the User Manual.)
