ok well first of all i would like to know if it is worth it to spend more on a firewire drive than usb. i would like to spend around $80 for the whole external setup. at first i was thinking about the mybook 160gb version(usb) that i can get for $175 from newegg. but then i kept reading about how people liked firewire better so i looked at them, and they are out of my price range, so i looked to just get an internal drive and a firewire enclosure hoping it would be cheaper. off newegg the cheapest firewire enclosure i can find is about $65 which is to expensive. so i found this that has a pretty good price but it only supports IDE which is older than SATA and i dont want any performance loss. so what should i do? is it really worth it to get firewire over usb? what kind of gain in performance will i get? and am i missing something; is there somewhere i can get a cheaper firewire enclosure? thankyou in advance.
