Has anyone had experience with extension cables and this drive? I see that there are 1.5 and 3ft ones here. The 3ft ones might be problematic, and one user specifically mentions a problem with a WD drive.

Envelope here. Why there's no consistency for these things is puzzling to me. But, as mentioned, at least it's suspended.
I've been looking at it with CrystalDiskInfo to see how it does with power cycling and load/unload cycling (head parking), and so far, both are stable. My APM was already set to 80h, as shown here, which means "Minimum power consumption without Standby." You can see it down this page:
Update: Load/unload is up to 32 now. I don't know what the timeout for head parks is set at though. Does anyone else? Wdidle3 isn't going to work with USB.

the device itself is suspended by those black plastic molds inside the original product box
not complaining about the packaging

|Necro||I got a padded envelope as well - this is a new low for crappy shipping if HDD's by NewEgg...|

received mine today. 2.5" external enclosure, single usb cable that is double ended on the drive side. Shipped in a box, not the best protection but probably OK.
Tried it on a brand new dell win7 laptop (including ports marked SS and with the power icons), a two year old dell win7 laptop, and a two year old win7 home-built tower plugged directly into the motherboard USB ports on back. None of the machines recognize the drive or even detect that anything is plugged into USB. It doesn't appear in disc management.
When I touch the drive case, I can feel it spin up and due an initial seek (it feels and sounds 100% normal in my experience); but that's it, nothing further happens.

|ChiliPepper||Got mine today. Brand new. Great deal!|

Got mine just now. The condition of the box makes it look used. The protective sticker has been removed and reapplied. Anyone else experience that?
Wonder if I should open it or return it...
