Rated 1 out of 5 by CindyRR from BEWARE! After owning a one of these safes for a few years, the electronics just went out. I needed important documents out of it for a trip. I DO NOT recommend purchasing one of these safes without a backup key entry. I couldn't get any timely service from their customer service number, so I called a couple of locksmiths that were unavailable. I then watched a couple of you tube videos and broke into in myself! WOW!

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 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 4 out of 5 by Vetteseet from Strong and secure safe I think this safe will meet my needs. I was especially drawn to the bio metrics feature. This is quite a leap from my combination dial safe to a digital safe with finger print access. I think it would help if there was easy access to more detailed instructions (i.e. fingerprint scanning ; how many fingers can be programmed?). Other than above listed, the safe should meet me needs. Still new to me and getting acclimated to understanding the features and limitations of the safe.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed_Cus from Dented: Box was fine, safe is dented This definitely happened at the manufacturer. The box was fine but the safe was dented. This could only have happened pre-boxing

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jerry43 from Security & fireproof qualities are adequate 2.0 size is what I was looking for. I have an old Sentry safe that I was satisfied with so I was looking for the same quality. Overall, I am satisfied with this safe except for the finger print feature. I know I was following instructions perfectly but gave up after 15+ tries using six prints on two hands. I over-paid for this feature, but will live without it & stick to the keypad! Safe was well packed for transport but arrived badly scuffed on the top & sides. I have no idea how other than to assume that it left the factory that way. There was no damage to the shipping carton. I will find someone to hopefully buff out these scuff marks. Programming the primary & secondary combinations was easy to do. I am confidant that I purchased a good quality safe to protect my valuables from fire & water damage.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Garbageman from Great size, BUT! I like the interior size, but the fingerprint system does not work.

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.
