By what I've read elsewhere, while USB 3.0 is theoretically faster than Firewire 800, realistically it falls a little short of FW800 in real-world operation. What I've read is that you still get data 'collisions' which slows, and sometimes breaks, data transfer such as feeding video output from your camcorder into your computer for editing. I have more than once run into this issue in USB 2, forcing me to transfer the files directly and let the editor convert them to video before I could work with the files. This is an issue I never experienced with Firewire.
Expecting USB 3 to be any better is really a pipe-dream, in my opinion.
