    I'm looking into these at the moment. It depends on which one you go for and what size. There are three models, one is USB, the next up USB/FW400 and then at the top a triple interface

    I think for the 500MB version then there is the option of usb2/fw400 and the triple interface. Dunno if that helps.

    They have three models:
    • MyBook Essential Edition = USB2
    • MyBook Premium Edition = USB2/FW400
    • MyBook Pro Edition = USB2/FW400/FW800
    The Pro edition is white, the other ones are black.
