MTBF - Mean Time Between Failure

Has anyone done the calculations to establish the MTBF of the RDL-SDR dongle (v3)?

I could come up with some good data like a climatologist if you could give me an idea what a good MTBF # would be :>}

A good MTBF calculation would require a very large statistically significant sample set.

My tiny insignificantly small sample set was, out of 4 RTL sticks, one died that was only a couple months old. Some of the others are over a year old.
