The whole point was how I've been using it, realizing the advantages over several years, and continue using it today.
I've heard the USB 3.0 marketing mumbo. I've yet to see anyone actually with a USB 3.0 device, either computer or accessory. So, think what you want about the "vastly superior USB 3.0," you can keep the CPU overhead, the real world same draw backs as USB 2.0 that equal slower than promised sustained speeds, etc. I'll still be using the firewire enclosures I bought years ago.
