Hdd used to be rated something like 20,000 hrs Mean Time Before Failure ( MTBF ). Nowadays, I don't hear this terminology being used. Has the term being changed to something else.

Its still used, but the marketing people at harddrive companies have buried in the back of the manual, and wouldn't even *think* of putting it on the box!  You can't let people know that eventually, the drive is going to fail!
