If it is USB 2.0, that's gotta suck waiting for those tranfers compared to what speeds Firewire can do.

i have a 120GB USB2 which is a WD. and i also have a 200GB WD that is firewire. and the difference between the two really is amazing. good things to have for backing up also. may it serve you well.

I have an 80gb WD USB2.0 that I use to switch between machines via KVMP for backup. I really want to get a 500gb Firewire 800 though.
