    I found it very interesting that someone posted that they have always
    used cables over 18" and never had any problems.
    However, a few lines down in their post, they state that Western
    Digital Drives are very bad and have had many of the go bad on them.
    Well, I have Western Digital drives from over 5 years ago and later,
    about 10 in all now (on 3 different 'puters), and they have all gotten
    HEAVY use. Not one of them has ever gone 'bad' on me. However, I
    have always used cables of 18" or less too.
    Just something to think on, eh???
