Nothing really, but I have a very strong preference for Philips head screws, primarily because the screw driver can’t easily slide out of the slot as with slotted screws. The down side of Philips screws is that both the screw head and the screw driver are more easily damage than slotted screw heads ad screw drivers, but that’s not a significant problem for me, especially with the small screws we typically use in our modeling.

What is wrong with slotted screws, I have 400 of them?! Well truthfully I have probably used 100 from that 400 screw order.
