Edward, from a technical perspective, that's only half true. In the case of basic file transfers (not video editing), the straight throughput of standard Firewire 400 is about half the speed of the same ATA100 drive installed internally. The newer Firewire 800 will bump this up to an even match.

But, again, for video editing, the throughput of Firewire 400 is more than fast enough.

This may help elucidate the benchmarks.

Sorry if my last post was misleading. You are correct, the speed of the physical drive is more important than the interface itself. Both are sufficient for video editing, its the actual hard drives that are the bottle neck.
