Is it ok to stack my G-DRIVEs on top of one another?

Because G-Technology uses aircraft grade aluminum enclosure to disperse heat crated by the internal hard drive, it is perfectly ok to stack the drives on top of one another.

* Just make sure that there is no tension pulling on the power plug in the back of the enclosure. Over time this can damage the actual plug.
