I already have a Synology DS212+ NAS with two WD enterprise server disks (raid) in them, these 2 other disks will be for offsite backup and I'll switch them once in a while.
From the reviews on Amazon the problems I saw mostly either the disk itself failing, or a flimsy connection breaking from the PCB or pins breaking from the connection. Also power fed from the usb port seemed to be a source of reliability issues (in the consumer 2.5 inch portable world). But I didn't see mentions failure of the sata to usb electronics so far, but perhaps most Amazon reviewers aren't knowledgable enough to diagnose such a problem.
