    The long jeopardy of hard drives install ?

    In looking inside a hard drive (especially the actuating arm's), I wonder about which way to install it.

    It would appear that having the hard-drive lay flat would be the best but who knows. I have computer's with HD's installed vertical and horizontal.

    Anyone have suggestions?

    I don't think the position/orientation makes any difference. I would be far more concerned with it's thermal condition with regard to position/orientation
    within the case.
