Everyone is concerned that the dreamplug will be a failure like the shiva and guru plugs, but if it just manages to work as advertised, it's a good deal.
This is a bit harsh, as this term is always subjective. How did the Sheeva fail you?
I guess failure is harsh and subjective. I would consider the rash of shiva failed power supplies and guruplug overheating to be design failures, which lead to a shortened product life span for customers. Will the dreamplug fair better in this regard? I hope so.
