Is it safe to place it vertical as long as it's in a area where it won't be disturbed? Or even vertical will wear on the disc?

I always have mine vertical. I've never laid them flat down.

The design was meant for it to be placed vertically but it was also designed to be placed either way.

It makes no difference as long as it isn't in risk of being knocked over

Vertical placement should be better for cooling since both the top and bottom are exposed. Just don't bump the unit.

This is correct, although I'd add to it saying to try to make sure the area its on isn't prone to vibrations because less surface area is touching so it might vibrate more.

I have mine vertical placed on two books separated. All three vents are clear that way.

Mine is out the way enough so knocking it over isn't an issue.

Mine's never not been vertical, though I install all my games so disc wear isn't a thing.
