    So I'm going to buy an external hardrive soon for all my necessities[[porn]]. Just wanted to know the advantages/disadvantages of each of those types.. such as which has fastest transfer/reading speed.

    Many thanks >.>

    HowStuffWorks "FireWire vs. USB"
    how fast is USB 2.0 vs Firewire or 100Base-T Ethernet?
    from the looks of it firewire is much faster, but comes at the cost that you now have to buy all these adapter cables. IMO if you're going for an external hdd then you're prolly using it as a backup and for when you wanna share files, for which USB will do just fine and give you the best compatibility, same goes for ethernet as firewire.

    lol no prob but if you're going for speed ethernet or firewire is def the way to go but compatibility is always an issue
