    How do you use your 360? Vertically or Horizontally? What is better?

    Why or why not.

    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.:smashin:

    Horizontal for me at the moment, but I'm always rearranging my room so it's been vertical too.

    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!

    Weird!:confused:

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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?

    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 but never tried the other way - the kids (or me when I'm drunk!) can't knock it over that way! ;)
