    My WD triple interface external drive goes into mine. DV Camera is also a likely use. But I am poor, and no DV for me.

    My justifications for using my FW800 instead of a USB variant are:

    It was on sale.

    It is super fast.

    Most importantly: It doesn't occupy any of my precious few USB ports.

    Oh yeah, I also forgot: Fire Wire allows you to daisy-chain other devices down the line, at least, that's what the words on my booklet say.

    I have three daisy chained FW 800 drives (500GB, 250GB, 80GB). It is very fast.:)

    Two different backup HDs. One Lacie and one Rocstor. Both fast.
