The Bad: The Time Capsule simply failed. From what I gather, the poor design choice of having the power adapter inside rather than outside the enclosure (in brick form like virtually every other device including Apple's Airport Extreme) caused the unit to run at unsustainably high temps that eventually fried the power supply. I had noticed that the unit ran very hot to the touch (like the Apple TV), so I tried various methods of temperature control (setting it on a wire rack in a well ventilated area of the room, etc.), but it seems this was not enough to avoid the fairly widespread 18-month death spiral being experienced by other Time Capsule owners.
