I think it should be noted that USB 2 might be faster then Firewire, however this dosen't make it better. I'll take firewire over USB any day. Why? because when transfering over USB, the data has to go through the processor, making your whole system slow down, Firewire is a direct link. I.E. No slowdown. This is one of the many reasons why the iPod is doing so well, its so blatenly fast.<br><br>
