None. When I installed my ProFurl LC-42 in the BVI twelve years ago, I checked with the local charter companies. As I recall, the entire Moorings fleet (150+ boats) were equipped with ProFurls, and the riggers reported NO problems. Hey, if charterers can't mess up something, it's gotta be pretty good.
Also, the best rigger in the islands swore by ProFurl...absolutely the best, said he.
So I went with ProFurl. No problems at all in 12 years.
FWIW, I understand the Schaefer and Furlex rollers to be pretty good, too, though much more expensive.
