      Rated 1 out of 5 by Cedarburger from Great at first... I really wanted to love this safe. I am from WI and that made me want to love them even more! These are two of four Sentry safe products we have in our house, but I may have to look for other options. I bought two (2) of these safes. Out of the box they were awesome. Opened quickly and completely. I change the batteries each 6 months to a year. The problem is the cylinder (as others have mentioned). They got really slow which does not help in an emergency situation. Now, two years later, one opens all the way but very slowly. The other opens half way, also very slowly. I am very disappointed. The cylinders on my tailgate glass lasted over 10 years with daily use!

      Rated 5 out of 5 by Nammy from Finally a great biometric / How I fixed my strut. I’ve had other biometric pistol safes before, and this beats them hands down. The quick swipe finger pad is easy to see, impossible to miss even when you are in a hurry, and quick. I’ve had it a couple of years and yes, my strut started getting weak. For a few cents I got another spring like the one on the strut. Without disassembling anything, I just wound the spring on the strut, effectively increasing the opening force. Just like new. I’m guessing the spring will last me longer than a new strut.

      Rated 3 out of 5 by Andy1 from Great safe but door struts failed... I came onto this website today to see if anyone has had the same problem and coincidentally the person to leave the latest review had his door struts fail too. So after 1 year of my purchase the struts failed so the door doesn't fully open. The door still opens upon unlocking the safe but it only cracks open about an inch or so... if any Sentry Safe representative reads this please address the issue and help me with the restoration of my safe! I do love your products!

      Rated 1 out of 5 by A_aron from Worked for 1 year - door fails to open fully My safe worked great for a year. After the year mark, I noticed the door to the safe wouldn’t lift as high when unlocking it. I changed the batteries and had the same results. Now at a little over 2 years, I unlock the safe and have to carefully lift the door from the side to get it open. After reading some of the reviews here, it looks like a pretty common issue with this product. It would be great but it’s expensive and not a investment if it stops being effective after a year.

      Rated 1 out of 5 by Bryl from Be Careful: Door Struts Go Bad After Warranty Date I bought 3 of these safes for my pistols and they worked Great for 1 year. Then the door struts (what flips door open) went bad on all 3 units in about 1 1/2 years. The 1 year Warranty expired, so I have 3 useless safes now. So if you only want the safe to work for a year or so, then go for it.

      Rated 3 out of 5 by ATBster from Safe with Flexible Options & minor irritations The safe arrived before scheduled and on budget, so good. But two things are irritating about the setup and installation. 1. Directions regarding programming numbers are unclear. Are the only numbers available 1-4? 2. It does not appear that one can program numbers AND fingerprint. This is unclear from the directions. 3. I could only manage to program one fingerprint, not two as advertised. Again, the directions are unclear and/or lacking. This product would have received 5 stars except for the poorly written and incomplete directions.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by Gio10992 from Very heavy, I hope that means strong :) PROS: It is very heavy and I hope that means strong. The gap between door and frame is small which should make it harder to pry it open I liked how easy it was to set up the combination and the finger bio locks. The strut arm that opens the door automatically after a successful unlocking is great. It is big enough to easily fit my rather wide S&W N Frame Revolver. CONS: It only allows for 2 fingerprints. I would prefer 6 prints or at least 4. I wish it came with the thick black cutaway foam (Kaizen foam) like I have in my other BioSafe which helps protect the pistol from being jarred around and scratched. I had to use my own Kaizen foam. All in all I like this safe.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by Kcracolici from Very pleased I'm not one of those guys that's very big on writing reviews, but I was really pleased that safe appears to be everything as described. The functionality is great, quality appears to be excellent, functions exactly as it's supposed to and had no issue with it. The only thing I noticed at all was to mount the safe, the instructions refer to using a 9/32 in drill bit for wood, when you use that size drill bit the provided woodscrews fall right through the hole up to the head of the screw, that size of a bit it's just way too big. Possibly just a typo in the instruction manual. Even for a one gun safe, I do wish the capacity was a little bigger
