Vertical, or horizontal to the floor? Just out of curiosity, which way to you find better, safer, etc...? I used to stand mine up, because I heard it kept it cooler, that did me fine for about a year or so, but then it started scratching my disks very very easily for some reason, I've since gotten a cooling fan and laid it down horizontally. Hopefully I can get it off the carpet soon. Anyways, what do you do?
do it laying down because you have less chance of disc scratching. i put my xbox vertical and the game fell outa the tray and the game got a ring scratch. plus you wanna take your games out of your xbox when you move it cuz the game might fall out of tray and when yoou turn it on itl make this hardcore scratching noise and itl ruin game or limit it to some uses
well computers have been vertical since: D, D, D, D and do you know why? ill tell ya anyway, because air can circulate better.
you see if its on its back look at the huge area covered with teh carpet, where as if its on its side its only a smaller ammount covered so theres less area to become hot :p
its not rocket science people ha
Best way is to keep it on it's side, if it's standing up and it falls over while a game is playing it will scratch the cd and you wont be able to play it. Happened to one of my games when my dog knocked mine over, I always keep it on it's side now.
We have it vertically, my brother says we shouldnt cuz itll scratch the discs but i dont think it does. They always have it vertically @ videogame stores soooooo I think its ok
I lay mine horizontally and have a cooling fan and haven't had any problems whatsoever with it :)
Ours lays down horizontally, and we've never had a problem with it overheating.
i just put mine any way and i've never had a problem :)
