Have you noticed the popularity of FireWire is slowly declining in PC industry? Take 1394B or FW 800 for example, you don’t see them anymore. I have a 5-year old Abit mobo with four FireWires built-in, pair of 800 and 400 each, but you barely get one with FW400 these days. Pity, I like the speed of FireWire better than USB 2.0 when it comes to external drive or card reader. But there’s one better than both, the Esata.
