It all depends on what you use your drives for. I remember reading for burst speeds, usb 2.0 was faster, but for large file data transfer, firewire was the best option.

Also remember, if you use your firewire drives as backup drives, you cannot target mount a usb2.0 drive, only the firewire. For my usage, it is important to be able to mount them, backup my drives, etc etc.

If you only use it for file transfer, no backup purposes that would require you to use target disk mode, I would go for usb 2.0. Cheaper, readily compliant with windows computers (if that would ever matter to you), and backward compatible with older hardware.
