Speed of transfer from IEEE 1394 devices to the system, eg: cardreader, but that's also if the IEEE 1394 device supports FW800 as well.

the connectors are different. i guess if you have a fw800 hdd you might see some speed improvements in disk access. so far havent come across any fw800 card readers.

er...FW800 also for windows too...but prob only useful at the moment if you have to connect multiple harddrives in RAID to your computer...cause harddrive read speed is the problem at the moment, not bandwidth speed...I think Buffalo or someone has such a product somewhere cause think I remember seeing it at ITshow...cardreaders at the moment don't even make use of the full bandwidth of FW400 or USB2 HS...and for teathered shooting, even Phase One says that FW400 is good enough for their P45 39Mpixel backs...
