[conspire] curious as to why Seagate would offer a 1.5T external hard drive with only USB 2.0

Costco has a 1.5T Seagate brand external hard drive. The enclosure
only has USB 2.0.
Costco also has a Western Digital MyBook external hard drive. The
enclosure has USB 2.0,  firewire 400, and eSata.

Too bad Seagate doesn't offer an enclosure with choices. Are they just
keeping costs down?

I'm assuming firewire 400 and eSata would be faster than USB 2.0.
