    Rated 4 out of 5 by Brian D from EXCELLENT "FIRE" SAFE Bought this fire safe to protect important documents from fire. It is just the right size to store papers and file folders without folding them. Saw other reviews about problems with the key, but mine worked fine had no problem at all. Also saw some negative reviews about the lock being able to be picked. Keep in mind that this is a fire safe meant to protect contents from fire not a security safe. The only negative I would give it is, it really needs a set of handles. I was going to put it on an upper shelf, but at around 28 lbs. it would be hard for the wife to get it down. Put it on a lower floor level shelf so it can easily be slid out. Definitely recommend this product.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by DanielTN from Not Ergonomic The safe certainly serves its intended purpose. However, it's heavy. Being heavy and slippery, it really needs handles to pick it up and carry it. Other than that, only minor issues. The label on the inside was peeling off upon arrival. I took it off and attached it to a piece of paper since it didn't have a prayer of staying on the inside cover and I didn't want it to fall off and get stuck to papers I put in the safe! The key lock isn't a lock, more like a latch. It's not for security, it's for fire safety so don't expect top security. The file folder rails are built in but the description isn't clear. It's a very good value if all you want is a fire safe.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by Tmb5374 from Broken Already! Got this as a wedding present a little less than a year ago and last night the lid fell off! Never any excessive force used - simply the normal opening and closing of lid. Extremely disappointing that we have to look for another safe already. Check the reviews on here and on Amazon before buying - this is not an isolated occurrence! With how easily this safe cracks, I would highly doubt if it works as far as being fireproof...

    Rated 1 out of 5 by Tammy Carey from Would give it zero stars if possible You would think that if advertised as fire proof they would also realize that water gets sprayed to put out fires and normal people assume that it's somewhat waterproof as well. Not the case at all as I found out the hard way this past week. It was completely useless when my home was destroyed in kingsland tx flood. My one glimmer of hope was this safe and the contents but when I retrieved it yesterday it was equivalent to having my possessions in a cardboard box.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by Files NOT safe from Keys DON'T work! I read so many negative reviews online, and purchased anyway.. in hopes I would have a good experience. Alas, I'm returning this product, and going with a different brand. Keys were IN locked safe, when I received it.. fortunately the safe doesn't close properly.. took 30 mins to wedge them out with a butter knife.. then the keys didn't even work!! So dissapointing!! NO stars.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by TooTall from Will do what I need. Needed a place to safely and securely store some important documents for a legal issue. Good price for what what you get. Might just be me, but I have to turn the key a bit before closing the lid or the key won't turn at all. I opted to live with it.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by Roger5000 from Covered in white substance. Opened it from the factory sealed box and found pretty much the entire safe covered in a white substance. It looked as if someone had tried cleaning it off (perhaps at the factory) but just managed to smear it around. Even the inside was smeared with the stuff. I'm hoping it's not toxic. I'm trusting that it's not. Definitely not the pretty black shiny safe that's pictured on the box. If anyone from Sentry safe reads this, please enlighten me on what the heck this stuff is. I tried cleaning it off and it won't wipe off. Just kinda gets cloudy and muddled.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by PattiH from Another Great Safe! I always trust SentrySafe safes - they are strong, reliable, and like most, this one is fireproof! I have a small one, a medium size one (this 1170 Fire File), and a larger one.
