Just curious on why the Amiga branded drives cables are so short. They are so short that you can't select which side of the 1000 you want to put your drives. This is true of the 5.25" Amiga (1020 I think is the model, looks like the 1571 but Amiga badged) and the 1010. The 3rd party drives have longer cables.
Is it for data transmission/error prevention? Less cable mess? Just curious if anyone has any insight!
