    Rated 3 out of 5 by SentryBuyer from Safe and Secure ?? How do you review a safe a few days after buying it and it hasn't been in a 1700°F (927°C) fire for 30 minutes or under water for 72 hours? It appears well built but I don't think it's impervious to being drilled open. I like the fact in can contain 8 x 11 inch papers flat but there's no extra room to prevent curling if they are in an envelope. This is an issue because, in the event of a fire, the manual states the patented insulation has a high moisture content which can damage delicate items and Master Lock is not responsible for damage or loss due to moisture. If you place your papers in a plastic bag (e.g. Ziploc bag) it will melt within the safe UL specification. Therefore to protect your documents from damage by the safe, Master Lock Customer Service suggests placing the papers in a paper envelope then a plastic bag.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed customer 101 from Dont waste your money on this safe!! I bought this safe less than 2 weeks ago... The plastic was apparently dry rotted bc its already gotten 2 cracks in it and ive only opened it 2 times. Not only that but the latch doesnt click back in place without having to move it yourself then push down on ut to turn key to close it.. Ive bought several sentry safes and the others are good quality... So I dont understand why this one is so cheaply made. I'm definitely disappointed.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by suchadork from Solid but so heavy This safe looks very solid in build, but I worry that it's so heavy that the handle is going to fall off. The handle feels like your normal plastic that might rip off if I pull on it too quickly. Other than that, it's a fine safe.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by Unsafe in Texas from Unhinged CH2 Bought a CH2 file safe and it broke at the hinge. Makes me wonder how safe thing thing really is (was) since it is advertised as "rugged"

    Rated 2 out of 5 by Mark G from Very cheap. The locking mechanism is made of plastic. They should’ve made the latch metal and the locking mechanism metal. I understand it’s not a top security safe but I don’t want nobody to give one good smack to the latch with a hammer and “Open sesame”.. also it would be destroyed because the plastic would be broke. As far as the rest of safe seems durable but I’m returning this one and look for one at least semi security.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by JohnS from Peace of mind, but not quite big enough I bought this for peace of mind, water as well as fire (our new winter home is in a flood zone). Since I do lose things, it is also helpful to register the key number in case I need to order a replacement. I'm keeping both papers and media in it, Letter sized paper fits, but file folders do not unless you fold the tabs in - a minor annoyance. The current next size up is too heavy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Sparky 54 from Perfect for My Requirements I bought three of these to complement the eight larger sentry products I already own. I needed something to keep emergency documents, cash, and computer back-up devices safe yet easily transportable should I need to evacuate quickly for whatever reason. I especially wanted something that would seal out water in case of fire or flooding. These fit the bill perfectly.
