2.0 Compliant USB Flash Memory vs. Firewire

USB Transfer rates have come up dramatically. A. 1.1 compliant pen drive device (USB Flash Memory) can transfer at a rate up to 12Mbps. Although very fast that 1.1 compliant transfer rate became inadequate once Firewire IEEE-1394 came available. Firewire (also called Sony's I-Link) has a transfer rate up to 400Mbps. Not to be out done USB 2.0 was created. USB 2.0 compliant pen drive devices can transfer data up to 480Mbps it is also backwards compatible so it will work with 1.1 devices as well. You can be assured someone is working to get Firewire and USB data transfer rates to climb.

The USB port and the I-Link (Firewire) port will power a small peripheral device such as a web camera, or flash memory device. Larger devices such as portable hard drives need external power. The USB only puts out about 5 volts and the Firewire will put out about 8 volts.

Which is better... well at the moment they are both extremely fast and deliver reliable data transfer.
