Drive orientation

Has anyone performed a study on mtbf depending on drive orientation? I reckon a drive is happier in the vertical position. More obvious with a tape as they sag at the extremities in long-term storage.
Just wondered because our old MSA drives were mounted vertically & our new EVA440 drives are mounted horizontally. This is probably less important with a 2.5" drive - are we likely to see these in a SAN anytime soon?
