I am very surprised about this estimate.

Isn't that rather so that Firewire is by _magnitudes_ faster?

Firewire is as fast as SCSI-2 UW! IEEE-1394 can pass up to
400Mbits/s, with plans for up to 1.2 gigabits(!!) per second
for Firewire II. USB passes just 12Mbits/s, what makes USB
up to whopping
        33 times slower
and not just 50% slower. Here is a nice overview of how the speed
of the contemporary hardware interfaces look like:

    USB: 12Mbits/s                            (1.5MBYTES/s)
    ECP/EPP parallel port:                       3MBYTES/s
    IDE:                                  3.3-16.7MBYTES/s
    SCSI-1:                                      5MBYTES/s
    SCSI-2 (Fast SCSI, Fast Narrow SCSI):       10MBYTES/s
    Fast Wide SCSI (Wide SCSI):                 20MBYTES/s
    Ultra SCSI (SCSI-3, Fast-20, Ultra Narrow): 20MBYTES/s
    UltraIDE:                                   33MBYTES/s
    Wide Ultra SCSI (Fast Wide 20):             40MBYTES/s
    Ultra2 SCSI:                                40MBYTES/s
    IEEE-1394: 100-400Mbits/s            (12.5--50MBYTES/s)
    USB-2:     480Mbits/s                      (60MBYTES/s)
    Wide Ultra2 SCSI:                           80MBYTES/s
    Ultra3 SCSI:                                80MBYTES/s
    Wide Ultra3 SCSI:                          160MBYTES/s
    FC-AL Fiber Channel:                   100-400MBYTES/s
