usb....firewire ??

hi, just got a external HDD, which is USB and Firewire, had a check and it would seem that the usb connection is a bit faster than firewire, if that is the case why would one use the firewire connection, or does it do something extra..

Firewire is primarily for dv transfer which usb2 can't cope with, but usb2 is better for other data transfer.
