My case has three places the OD drive could go, where do you prefer your drive?

Currently my drive is in the bottom slot because that is all the longer my SATA cable allows for, but I was just curious as to where people put theirs and do the other slots hold any advantages?

I don't have one (wouldn't use it enough+it'd look bad), but if I did I'd put it in the top slot for looks+because it's the easiest to reach.

In a box of spare parts in the garage. I only have to pull it out maybe once every couple years. My case doesn't even have a spot for one.

Mine ended up in the bottom slot as well, no particular reason. It has little fold down covers that move out of the way when you press the eject button on the case. If it hadn't had those I probably would have just left it out completely and used my USB drive for the one occasion I've used it. Or maybe I would have just done what I used it for on my laptop that has one.
