Is the reliability of this device any better than its predecessors? The 1TB and smaller units have horrid failure rates.

    Apple have identified that at around 18 months old, the initial 500GB and 1TB models may experience a PSU failure. That has been rectified in both the latest models but also any replacements which are issued in an Apple Store for the old units have a newer PSU installed. In short, the new devices are the best on the market by a long shot.
