How do you use your 360? Vertically or Horizontally? What is better?
Why or why not.
horizontally as vertically it vibrates too much on my cupboard
horizontal for me, only cos i store it on a glass stand under my screen, although someone told me it can scratch the disc's whilst vertical, how true that is i dont know
just put mine vertical to fit in with my new setup, but had it horizontal since purchase...
I found mine froze more when vertical, so horizontal for me.
Vertical for me as I only have a small space to fit it in
lets keep it alive.
I use mine vertically because i have it on my Compy. desk, and horizontally would take up WAY to much space. But onces i rearrange, we will see.
Horizontal for me at the moment, but I'm always rearranging my room so it's been vertical too.
bump x2. Lets not let it get lost
I had mine vertically for 10 months, I just think it looks better that way. Then the ring of light kept lighting up the wrong quarter, e.g. on a one player game, not the top left quarter but the right one would light up. Then it would flicker between the two!
Concerned it would get damaged, I put it horizontal and its been perfect since!
Shouldn't make a difference either way - it's been designed to do either. I have mine vertical if on the downstairs tele, or horizontally on the upstairs one. Not noticed any difference either way, as it should be.
had two break down on me whilst vertical, kept my third horizontal and it has been fine .take from that what you will.
Vertical for me.
I realize many people have them horizontal coz it fits under their TVs, but I think this round of consoles (PS3/360) are designed to be set up verticaly even though you can have them horizontal.
horizontal dont trust it vertical at all. Never trusted the ps2 in that position either. The wii is the only console that looks safe vertical.
Barely had mine a week but have kept it in a vertical position. Haven't had any problems at all.
its vertical in the demo pods and they run pretty much constantly so i don't think it really makes too much different, mine is currently horizontal but ill be putting it vertical soon to make room for my wii.
yes, thats right. keep voting... muawhahahaha
bumpity bump, bump
topic revived. I need more votes
vertical for me
its on top of the wardrobe with my sanyo z4. the lip on the warddrobe will get in the way of the cd tray otherwise.
No option for me but horizontal. Although if you place vertical then you have more of the air vents exposed but then you run the risk of disks getting scratched(according to some!).
Horizontal for me I thought disk scratching was only if you changed the orientation whilst a disk was in the console?
vetrical for me too. dunno about scratching discs but i just prefer the look of the 360 upright plus the space saved is a bonus lol
Another vertical here, had it vertical by the TV for a year now, apart from a day when I tried it horizontal in my AV rack (overheated after an hour ) haven't had any problems with it been vertical.
Horizontal for me, maybe will change to Vertical (lying flat or standing up?)
Horizontal but never tried the other way - the kids (or me when I'm drunk!) can't knock it over that way!
would love to have it vertical but makes too much vibration noise on my wooden unit so has to be horizontal
have mine horizontal had it vertical but had to take pro evo back cause i knocked it over vertically and ahad a huge ringed laser burn round the disc gamestation said its a laser burn and it was my fault i said it wasn`t and would be returning my 360 if they didnt replace pes6 which they duly did so horizontally for me looks quite nice on top of my sky+ box
Mines horizontal at the moment, might change to vertical cos i've got no room on my desk.
