    This external acts like a hub as well. It has 3 usb ports, 2 firewire 400, firewire 800, esata.

    My question is: Does having multiple items plugged in at the same time effect the transfer speed of files to/from the hard drive. For example, I am connected via esata and I have a mouse, keyboard, etc connected to the external hard drive ports. Will this slow my transfer speeds?

    I would guess no, because you will still need to have a USP input from your computer to the V3 in addition to the FW cable, in order to use it as a USB hub and FW HD at the same time.
