    USB input vs i-pod input?

    I'm looking at new HUs, the two units that are looking the best to me are the Pioneer 5900ib and 6900ub. Slightly different cosmetically, biggest functional difference I can find is that the 5900 has an i-pod input, the 6900 has a USB input. Both inputs work with the i-pod, but what else can the USB do? MP3? The site mentions flash drives, wth could I do with those?

    Any other HUs in the $200-250 range that are better IYO than the Pioneers??

    Thanks

    I'm not sure whats the capabilities of the usb input, but being able to hook an external hard driver to it would be really nice.

    I heard it's a 500mA powered USB. To spin up a portable 1" USB drive, it needs about 300mA. I have tried to plug in a 1" USB drive through a JVC USB car audio player and it worked perfectly ok.
