I would still much rather use firewire. It just doesn't have the same PC performance crippling effect that USB has...

That's true.

USB is "host controlled" meaning your CPU has to do some of the work. Whereas firewire hardware has it's own CPU (or something) internal to the device. You can also chain some firewire devices one off each other (i.e. the MAC keyboard is connected by firewire and has 1 or 2 firewire ports on it too)

USB devices are generally cheaper for these reasons, also easier to manufacture.

I've never managed to get the theoretical max USB 2.0 speed (~50mb/s) anyway as the devices I'm using are never that fast (HDD, flash drive, camera) but there must be some device out there that is pushing the boundary?

Not sure about devices maxing out usb speeds but haven't apple dropped firewire now? I seems like good technology that has not 'taken off'. USB is everywhere...

You can still daisychain using USB, but is limited by the power consumption of the conneted device

Apple and firewire are rife.

Firewire on the pc (windows) tho pretty innefficient.
