Default 002 compared to Command8

002 is firewire and the Command8 is USB. Both have MIDI and are portable.

I own a 002 for my LE system. I like everything about it with the exception of it lacking a talkback function.
I also use it in satndalone mode frequently with my HD3 Accel system when it's at home. At that point it's a little frustrating because I find myself reaching for faders, buttons and knobs that do not control the system. It's basically my volume control.

The Command8 would appear to rectify this in it's ability to run LE and TDM systems. It also has a talkback function and looks a little more like my Control 24 (in some respects). Downside...no mic pres or line ins.

I can rig a talkback system for the 002 and I can bring mic pres for the Command8.
They both have an upside and a down side. I have to weigh those out.

My question(s):
- Is USB fast enough to handle TDM comfortably?
- Is USB better, worse, the same as firewire in this application?
- Is owning both in order to handle LE and/or TDM along with portability a little on the overkill side?
- Does selling the 002 in order to purchase the Command8 make more sense.
