The Nas are designed for running 24/7, turning the devices on and off frequently will shorten the electronic lifespan. That said that's no excuses for your NAS to spoil so quickly.

Yours maybe had a defective power component? I had a LG monitor adapter which always blew everytime the power supply got cut (stupid yah, means cannot turn off the power). I change 2 of them before the new one proved to be okay.

PS I don't have good experience with WD reds, but I think HDD experiences are subjective also.

Not 24/7
I use it when I need it but recently I set schedule to Auto turn on and shutdown daily at night

Does it count as 24/7 also?
