What is the forum's consensus of the life I can reasonably expect out of a Telo unit? I have my unit elevated on two narrow lengths of 1 1/2 inch thick strips of wood, and a computer fan constantly moving air around the unit. I am not fond of extended warranties. :)

Hmm, I believe the telo was released in the later half of 09, and mine is around 26 months now.

An entry level UPS is a better option, IMO.

I have used a few units and even with 24/7 they remain cool enough I can't imagine any external help making any real difference to the internal temperature or its lifespan based on a few degrees. A surge protector certainly has the potential of greatly helping.

My setup: Includes one perfectly fine, USB driven, laptop fan that was cannibalized from an ancient HP. Some things never die. Total cost = $0.00 :D

Great setup. Wire tray upside down works too if you need a change up from wood to metal :)

I had to go and feel mine. It isn't hot at all.
