I'm a little confused.
How is 400 mps faster than 480 mbps?
For one thing USB 2.0 has more overhead than Firewire. For sure Firewire is faster no matter what the specs say. I have done test after test and Firewire always wins and by a healthy margin. Like the other poster said, it's not the same at all as USB. Different plug, Different technology.
