The first power supplies (or a batch of them) weren't very good. Mine
died, but did not cause any harm (except to itself). I got a new one
like 5 months ago and it's been running 24/7 since then with no problems

I don't consider them dangerous, and I've been using my Sheeva for more
than a year now at my place, in my table, without noise or fires :-)
