    Which would transfer data faster? I currently have a WD Scorpio Black 500GB connected with FW800 for my media. I also have an AEBS with a USB drive (WD Green 1TB) attached to it that I use for Time Machine, which is standard USB2.0 speed. Anyone know if the Time Capsule 2TB drive would transfer data faster or slower than the FW800 connection (using a data cable, not wireless)? The AEBS is going to my wife's office, and I'm contemplating getting the TC. If it's faster than FW800, I'd consider put my media on there and use the FW drive for Time Machine.

    I'm using a 2010 Mac mini with an Intel 320 160GB SSD, w/8GB ram for my computer. This machine is hard data wired, but our iPhones, iPad and laptop use the wireless in case anyone was wondering.

    Thoughts?
