Is eSATA really better than USB 2.0 and Firewire?

Q&A

I am looking to buy an external hard drive and I am impressed with the speed of an eSATA connection - 300MBps, it's claimed. Is it really this fast in real life?

Or is it just as fast as Firewire? If it is not as fast as its advertised, why not?
