Yeah, go straight ahead. Although, it's a scam. It's obvious.

Can anyone please explain the speed comparisons between firewire and usb2 .
It is a bit confusing.
I get the general idea that on a Mac firewire is faster and that the drivers for usb2 are not that great.
How about on a PC. Which is faster firewire or USB2 ?

in theory usb2.0 should be faster yet it depends on many factors like the device and which type of firewire you use
usb2.0 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USB2
firewire http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Firewire
