Default New Sony external dvd burner and USB 2.0?

sponsored links
I'm thinking about getting the

Sony DRX530UL 8X DVD+-R/RW CDRW Combo Drive - USB & Firewire

i found it for 150 at and it seems like a great deal because its external, so i dont have to worry bout installing a drive into my computer and its both dvd+r and -r. just wanted to kno if anyone has any feedback on this model and wanted to kno if external dvd burners are just as good as internal ones. also, it says it uses USB 2.0 to hook up to my computer. im buying a new computer from dell and have no idea if its coming with USB 2.0 or firewire, so if anyone can give me a heads up on how to find out, please let me kno
