External

I'm looking to get an external for the new imac to keep my footage on when editing.

My two options are either FireWire 800 or USB 3.0

The new imac doesn't have a FireWire port, so am I better off getting USB 3 or get an external with FireWire and use the thunderbolt to fire wire adapter?

I've always thought FireWire is the way to go because of continuous stream, but would the adapter slow it down to a point USB 3 has the advantage?
