Why go for USB 2.0 when the FireWire enclosure is cheaper and faster?

Default Re: New HDD need ur HELP !!!

Well here is the thing, i have a fireWire port, but its infront of my case, it is built in my case. Is it ok? will it run the same as if it would be built in the MOBO???

Will my FireWire port that is built in my Antec P180 case be sufficent?


Il prob be using this HDD for storage...like Movies & Music So i dunno if i evn need the FireWire.

I thought that the shell that i found was really good, better then the WireWire shell, so In ur Profesional opinions guyz, if i will be using this HDD For watching Movies and Listening to Music / Storing Movies/Music what should i get??? SO CONFUZED....


I have my hand on the "Purcase" Button on the newegg website, but still trying to decide betwin this 2 shells....

Apart from that, everything else seems fine.

The Enclosure he selected is an Excellent choice.

(glad you took my advice Zero, That hard drive is wicked as well)

As long as the Firewire port is hooked up to your Mobo, the speed will be the same Be it on the board vs. on the case


If you have your heart set on that enclosure it will be fine for you, but if you want a bit faster transfer rates then get the one with firewire and USB, i mean that way you will have both.

Good info on the real world tests.

I was going to say USB 2.0 was faster, because looking at the numbers

USB 2.0 = 480MBps

Firewire = 400MBps

It looks like it.
