USB 2.0 vs FireWire

Posted on Friday, October 18 2002 @ 10:01:36 CEST by

Eight months ago an external HDD with the USB 2.0 interface dropped into our lab. That was Hyundai Cutie. The world has changed a little since then. Firstly, the USB 2.0 interface has in fact become a compulsory feature of all latest generation mainboards and is often supported by the chipsets. Secondly, hard drives have been steadily dropping in price thus making affordable quite large storage capacities.

That's why I thought it would be smart to check the capabilities of a large external USB 2.0 HDD and compare its performance with that of an external FireWire drive. To make the show complete, I also added an ordinary ATA100 drive to the cast.
