When the H47 was shipped to me, the drive was insufficiently padded -- basically 
padding top and bottom, but nothing on the other four sides because the box was 
epsilon bigger than the drive.  As a result, the door hinge got broken on the 
left drive.  I'm not too mechanically apt, but I guess I'd describe it more 
accurately as saying both struts that attach to the door cover snapped about 1 
cm from where they are screwed to the door cover.  I haven't disassembled the 
drive enough to know how these struts are attached inside the drive and if they 
are practical to replace.
