IMO there's a correlation between these two. If you leave it on 24/7, it'll probably still be working by the time you're looking at replacing it. If it gets powered on/off daily * 365 * 10 years...that's 7,300 power cycles. If someone insists that has no impact whatsoever, I'll agree to disagree. By what measure, I have no data to back it up with. It's just a gut instinct thing.

Most of my hardware is getting rather old and tends to run 24/7. There was a point in my life where I powered things down religiously, but these days I've never had hardware that lasted this long until I stopped doing that. Coincidence? Could be. But I've drawn my own conclusions.

My NAS was purchased in 2009, I believe, and only power outages have brought it down, when my UPS battery died.
