I have a US3D that has been in service for a year, IT did have to go back for a replacement for the HDMI input but that was not due to the heat. IT does get hot enough to cook an egg and that is partialy why using the aluminum chassis on that unit was a good Idea to help dissipate some of it.

I have had it in enclosed spaces and on a wire rack during uses and sometimes running for up to 16hrs straight without problems. Just be sure to bring along some oven mitts :)

There was a review that I saw a few months back comparing the US3D to the the IOxt and when measured with a laser thermometer the AJA unit actually runs hotter. But perceptibly the US3D feels hotter because of the aluminum enclosure.
