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 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 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 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 2 out of 5 by Victor1234 from Great Safe Until It Stops Working Safe was perfect until the device stopped working and SentrySafe refused to remedy the issue. Their only offer was a 15% coupon to buy another safe. I've owned the safe for just over two years with little use. The safe was only open less that once every two weeks and now is inoperable. Very disappointed by a product that can't last longer than two years and doesn't have a manufacture that stands behind their product. Will never purchase another sentry safe product

Rated 4 out of 5 by InGlockwetrust from A good preventative measure For the most part, this safe is great. I love the look, and functionality of it. My fiancé and I were able to set it up/program it in less than 10 minutes out of the box. My only concern is that any “real thief” will find a way into it. It’s strong, sturdy, and definitely idiot/child proof, but it says right in the instructions that if you lose the key, or forget your code you can just use a magnet to turn the locking mechanism to force it open. I realize that this would be a bit of an extreme circumstance that someone would break into our house, make it passed me, my dogs, and my fiancé, and steal and break into this safe, but it could happen. I do believe it’s an excellent “bedside” safe for the money, but since it could potentially be broken into somewhat easily, 4/5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WiseguyDS from Excellent. Just what I needed One thing I couldn’t find is a reliable biometric safe. I custom-made a steel bracket and bolted it to the back side of the safe. Now it hangs on the side of my bed for easy reach. What I would like to see is the ability to tether it with a cable and an AC adapter if a commercial version of what I have done is ever made.

Rated 2 out of 5 by DrRobert from Lousy piston Just bought this safe. Set the code and scanned a couple of fingerprints. The safe opened reliably half a dozen times then the piston failed. I am really concerned that I will not be sble to get the lid open when it is really critical. The manual said to use s magnet, but that should not be necessary. It is either terible engineering or poor quality materialsl.
