Not a bad deal, but ugly as hell. I'd have to mod it...

But hey, this is a modding site right!

For some reason it only points out the USB 2 as a feature, but it says in system requirements "Available USB, FireWire, or eSATA port"  I'd assume it means FW400, but I wonder why it doesn't highlight these more.

Edit: I just searched for the product and Newegg has a picture of it with only a USB port.  I'd be really pissed if I bought it from circuit city and they were lying to me about FW
