My feeling is that firewire got left behind with the advent of USB2.

I dont know what sort of speeds USB2 can get upto - sure someone will fill us in, but my view is that firewire is only really for transferrring large videos - form a camcorder, possibly to/from digital camera, but not really worth it.
