Optimal position for PS2 Slim
Optimal position for PS2 Slim –
I wanna ask, which is best position for ps2 slim (scph-75004) - sit horizontally or stand vertically. If its horizontal the console gets a lot hotter then if its standing vertically. Is it worth buying vertical stand?
i have used both FAT and Slim and never got any stand and mine were always on vertical position
It shouldn't make any difference what position the console is in as long as the vents are clear of dust and the ps2 has a clear spot to sit without a load of rubbish in the way blocking the ventilation to the ps2 the ps2 doesn't have any holes other than screw holes on it's underbelly which could be used to let air in but there air tight covered by black tabs anyway.
The only advantages / disadvantages of each position is the way the lazer and the disc move when it's in the horizontal position the disc is pulled towards the lazer by gravity which should make disc reads better because when it's in the vertical position the disc is effectively being pulled to left away from the lazar via gravity on each rotation it also causes easier disc scratches.
Either Horizontal or Vertical is the same, as gravity isnt really an issue, since theres a magnetic disc that holds the discs in place. Some of my consoles actually read better from a vertical (up on its side) position.
But i agree, vents free of any air blockage is the thing to check in preventing any sort of over heating issues.
