So last night my 1TB Apple Time Capsule shut off, never to turn on again. I'm not exactly sure how long I've had it, but probably in the neighborhood of 18 months or so... which jives well with stats I've found around the net. I'm very disappointed with Apple and what was supposed to be a "highly reliable" backup solution. Seems in the interests of aesthetics, they decided to ignore certain laws of physics regarding heat.
So, no I will not be replacing it with another Apple product. Back to ol' Linksys for me... at least until that one goes a day out of warranty and instantly fries itself too. :-/
