Shouldn't be any better on Windoze.  USB has very limited bandwidth.  Good
for MIDI, serial control interfaces, scanners, FDDs, etc..  Not good for
audio, video, CD burning, harddrives, etc.  Firewire is the way to go.  If
you don't have firewire on your laptop I think its better to start thinking
about upgrading rather than going down any USB path.
