I know there has been several threads on externals, but I am wondering about USB vs Firewire.
Looking to pick up an external hard drive... Looking at either a Western Digital or a Seagate FreeAgent... the Western Digital is USB 2.0 and the Seagate is USB 2.0 and Firewire... the stats say that the Seagates USB transfer speed is actually faster than it's firewire speed... is this generally the case? Aside from saving a USB port is there a benefit to having both? If you have a USB/Firewire drive what mode do you use?
