Lightpipe: PreSonus FireStudio or M-Audio Profire?

both units seem to offer a similar spec in terms of the amount of ins/outs they offer, however i'm at a loss as to why the m-audio unit is available for half the price of the PreSonus one.

is anybody here able to comment on either of these units and which one would be best as an ADAT>Firewire solution?

thanks
