One; I squeezed in the screw too hard and slightly destroyed the circuit. BAD mistake on my part. I could repair it now, but back those days I didn't have a soldering iron.

Otherwise, they're all nice, safe, and pretty much soundless. Really quiet. In fact, I haven't heard one of them cranking at me for few months, but rather just smoothly spinning no louder than my case fans.

The trick is to screw it in securely. Obviously I once did it too much and it broke, but otherwise the harder the drive is secured to the case the stabler and less damaging the hard drive gets.
