    Rated 5 out of 5 by Eric S from Excellent File Safe with Fire and Water Protection Excellent File Safe with Fire and Water Protection. Plastic lid latch seems weak and hard to replace. I bought this at a steep discount because it was a "locked" floor model and didn't have a key available. I found a cost effective key from an online key store and it's been great so far. SentrySafe charges $29.95 plus shipping and handling for 2 keys and for security you must know the serial number of the unit which is wisely inside the safe. My older and smaller SentrySafe model has the S/N on an outside label. But all is well, and the great price was worth the hassle.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by CJAM from Very comforting to have safe place for heirlooms I bought this safe to provide secure storage for all of my very old family photographs and documents, some of which are 200 hundred years old. In fact, I was so delighted and comforted that I returned immediately two days later and purchased a second chest to take care of some other important cherised documents and books as well.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by Zito1977 from Solid Safe The safe is very Solid and I believe it will provide protection to fire and especially water. The locking mechanism is really cheaply made and it’s a shame that it’s not better.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by dakev from Sturdy and large enough to be of real use I like it, the size is right. I use it to store backup hard drives. However, for such a heavy safe the hand holds could be more secure, and the housing is cracked (how that could happen sitting in a closet I don't know) - although that doesn't affect the integrity of the interior.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by 1Adam12 from Don't waste your time or money! This key lock on this safe is the worst lock I have ever seen. I bought two of these at the same store only to find out that they were keyed alike, but because the keys did not easily slide into the locking mechanism, I returned both of them to the store.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Jododyos from Well, here it sits! It was cumbersome to get out of the box because that thing is heavy! I filled it up and here it sits. Not much to report after a couple of weeks. :-) I let you know if it spontaneously combusts or if anything weird happens to it with my stuff in it..

    Rated 1 out of 5 by Hoping It Lasts from Poor design for latch, lock and carrying handles. Squeezing the plastic latch seems like it is going to break. The key is difficult to put in the lock. The carrying handles need to be angled up inside so your fingers don't feel like they are going to slip out. Hope it lasts.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by Waynej from Heavy Duty Well Built The safe appears to be well built and has ample room inside for what I need. The keys seem a little weak but don't plan on opening that much. Hope I never have to find out how fire/water proof it it.
