HD connector speed

When you are buying the external hard drive storage, I would recommend looking for eSATA connectors, backing up, or copying videos via USB is very slow.

USB 1.1 – 15 Mbps
FireWire (1394a) – 400 Mbps
USB 2.0 – 480 Mbps
FireWire 800 (1394b) – 800 Mpbs
SATA 1.5 – 1.5 Gbps
SATA 3.0 – 3.0 Gbps

near future:

USB 3.0 - 5Gbps
eSATA version of SATA 6G - 6.0Gb/s
