Ext DVD writer - USB or Firewire?

I am just about to buy a new external dvd writer. I found an LG unit that sounds good and there is also a Sony unit that has a firewire connection option.

Is it worth paying extra for a firewire connection? ie will it speed up the dvd writing, or will usb2 be ok?

It will make no noticeable difference at all unless you are going to be transferring 100Gb/day. Go for the cheaper and the LG is an excellent product.
