Default Ps3 - Up or down?

Well I have a PS3 now, and its not in any way starving for air. Its in a nice open area. So, with that said, would you have it standing up or laying down?

I like it laying down, because it just fits well like that.

However, standing up, I think would give it still a better vent (because it seems to get really hot!).

But does it really matter?

What do you think.

I think they look better laying down. It just wouldn't look right standing up IMO, the PS2 could go either way but the PS3 looks like it was meant to be lying down. Just my opinion though.

I think where it's located it looks better standing up. Sitting behind a TV makes it look strange but standing it looks better in this case.

I always like to have the drives parallel to the ground because if they are perpendicular I think there is a higher chance of damage IMHO

The last option in the poll was so tempting that I just had to click it.

Personally I like it laying down... because that's the way I have mine. That HDTV makes me so jealous though.
