    Does USB 2.0 have enough bandwidth to work as an Aperture scratch disk? I know FW is required for video because it supports sustained data streams... but photos don't work that way, right?

    Correct. Firewire would make for a faster scratch disk, but USB 2 would still work.

    I went ahead and got a G-tech FW 250 GB drive. :)
