You have just seen how the WDXF2500JB performs when attached via USB 2.0. Now I plug it to a FireWire connector and run the benchmark once again:
Starting out with FAT32, we see that the WDXF2500JB is downright retarded compared to the other three devices when it works through the FireWire interface.
The reading operation adds no optimism – the gap between the WDXF2500JB and the other drives is huge!
We see the same in the copy near test – the Media Center is very, very slow.
And once again, we see the WDXF2500JB lagging it far behind the other drives.
