I don't think I've ever seen anyone with a USB 2.0 drive. USB 1.0 maybe. Just don't see them around. I'd say firewire is here to stay. Rock solid! (with Macs anyway)

Thanks Aaron for the explanation!
So I guess the MBox is USB 1.0??...would it be too hard to make it USB 2.0 and end with the latency issues?
