I've heard that USB 2.0 was faster than FireWire. But that was from Radio Shack, they bent the truth a little.

USB 2.0 = 480MB/s
FireWire = 400MB/s

technicaly usb is faster but theres no guarantee youl get those speeds with the devicded plugged in,, shouldnt matter, firewire is pretty much for digital camcorders and sometimes external hard drive,, usb is for everything else
