Firewire v USB2

  nick35 13:08 27 Nov 04

I am looking to by an external hard drive. The maxtor one touch 250 gb looks good. There are 2 versions, one with usb 2 & firewire & one with usb 2 only.

The latter one is £20 cheaper.

Is it worth paying the xtra money?

Which is the fastest out of the 2?

In theory USB2 is faster, but from reports it seems that in practise, Firewire is faster.

Whether its worth paying extra, especially of you don`t have a firewire card, is your choice.
