Reviews on WD Elements, death before or after a year?

I’ve been using WD My Passport since 2010, with my initlal 320Gb then 1Tb in 2013, both served me well and never died on me until this day. Now this will be the first time using WD Elements (2Tb). Now while surfing the web, I got lots of bad reviews on this hard-drive, most saying that theirs died even before turning 1 year since purchase. Maybe it was an older model, but given the fact I got the latest model, what can you say about it’s performance and reliability?
