The most common warning that I see with using a dryer is that the apron can become contaminated with residual fixer from the prints over time. I wouldn't use one in a communal darkroom but I've never had a problem in my own darkroom. Just be very careful and consistant with your washing procedures.

My only problem with them is that you have to hang around and tend it until all your prints are dried. With hanging, you can split as soon as they are up and return when they are dry.
