Hello, just a quick question. I see a lot of posts about what is better position for external seagate HDD (seagate backup plus hub).

Some people say to lay it down as there is normal HDD inside so it should have disks horizontally, some say it should be standing as it has 4 plastic "legs".

Any ideas whats actually better?

Its functionality isn't affected in any way by its position. I recommend having it laid down flat instead of standing tall because of stability. It's pretty easy to knock it down and damage it in the process if placed standing upright, even for the thickest variant (Fast). Beware of internet trolls buddy.
