Rated 4 out of 5 by As Golfer from Exactly as advertised Only had the safe for one day so review is limited. Arrived in good condition. Very easy to set up code and fingerprint functions. Instructions tell you to put 2nd fingerprint for primary user in immediately. I didn’t. Couldn’t put it in later without deleting first and starting over. Not a big deal. Happy, so far, with the purchase. Only concern is the handle mechanism feels flimsy when operating it. Hopefully it will last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hardhead from Excellent Quality and Just Barely Large Enough I extensively researched my safe options before settling on the Sentry Safe SFW205BPC. I ended up ordered 2 additional shelves that were delivered promptly to enhance its utility. Everything worked exactly as represented. It was easy to program in my own security code and my fingerprints into the biometric reader. The locking lugs were a bit stiff but I sprayed them a verrrry light coating of WD40 and cycled them about 30 times before they loosened up quite nicely. The safe has an air of solidity to it and the lugs appear to be solid substantial bars. No complaints whatsoever that are the fault of the safe. However, now that I have one I would like to keep more cherished items in it but I simply ran out of space. I have a 72x48" monster in another home that has plenty of space but it occupies a lot of real estate! Make sure that you get one large enough for your needs and then some. Some people have wondered whether it is OK for firearms and I do not see why it would not. Always you some kind of drying agent some and open the doors at least once per week and you should be just fine. I store a compact 9mm and several mags on one shelf with no problem. This is a quality piece of equipment and a fair bargain at the price. At 124lbs it can be moved rather easily so it still should be anchored if you are concerned about portability. The biometric feature was a big selling point for me and I would NEVER by another safe without it. I mean NEVER! The wife also appreciates this feature tremendously!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sushifreak from Great safe for the cost! Though listed at over $650 on by most of SentrySafe's distributors, I was able to find the exact same model for around $340 at Lowe's, and purchased it through them. Free delivery only sweetened the deal. It is a beefy unit, weighing around 125 lbs, and very easy to program! I wish SentrySafe sold the inner trays for less, but then that's what Amazon is for (1/2 price on there).

Rated 3 out of 5 by Dawne from Product fine Product arrived in satisfactory condition, the instruction videos not accurate as mine did not have the screw on the inside to remove to set up and was on hold for over 30 mins via phone trying to reach customer service to get assistance in resetting factory access lock code and to get help on how to program fingerprints URGH

Rated 5 out of 5 by Attica76 from Secure safe This safe is big enough to hold my important documents with out having to bend them and can still leave both draws in. The model without the fingerprint would serve the same protection. The fingerprint feature would just be a personal preference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ronald5077 from Solid first safe This was something I have wanted for many years. Did the research and settled on this one. I like that it has multiple layers of security and is water/fire resistant. I do wish it had a bit more space inside but it is good for what I need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bocco from Very Nice and Strong This safe is taking the place of my old Sentry that was 1.2 and served its purpose for 12 years. passed it down to my daughter. I need more space and I love the new technology of dual numbers and finger scan.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dave C from Excellent but Fingerprint The safe is everything I thought it would be except the fingerprint does not work all that great! Takes about 3 to 6 swipes before the safe will open with the fingerprint option. Great price for the money.
