Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by chris Good safe. Press softly when programming
Ordered this safe about a month ago. I was frustrated at first bc I couldn't get the biometric to accept my finger print, I called customer service at gun vault and they were useless. She told me that I'm part of the small percentage of people that it's just unable to read my prints, whatever that means. I was getting rdy to box it up and send it back when my wife says let me try. She programmed her print the first try. She watched me do it again and said no you have to scan softer. She was right lol. Using her method it accepting my next two prints. I finger print people for a living, I've never pressed this soft on any other software but go figure. Also practice opening it several times, like 100 plus bc it is pretty particular on how easy it is to open. I can usually get it opened in about 10 seconds max so I like it and I'm keeping it. Light mechanism works well, I have it bedside w a glock 21 as we speak. Good safe once you can get it to read your prints.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kam5 Major flaw
The safe design is fantastic, but it has 1 major flaw. The fingerprint reader just doesn't work well. I have a Barska biometric safe that works the 1st time 100% of the time. The reader on this safe is a swipe type that can take multiple attempts to get the safe to open. This completely defeats the purpose of the safe. I would buy this safe with the push button combo but would never recommend the biometric version. It is a shame because as staed earlier, Barska has proven there are goor readers on the market. Why would GunVault choose to put such a poor reader on their safe?

It's great as I like how the gun is in ready mode to grab. The finger print scanner takes a few tries to open is the only con I have.

Well built for its purpose, Hard to program fingerprints, instruction sheet that comes with safe not clear on programming, go on line and find a more more detailed sheet, wife fingerprints worked well, mind won't work at all. So if you buy be prepared to return if your prints won't program .

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by E1 Works like a charm!
I love this vault so much that I bought a few for other areas of my home and office- one on each nightstand, one under my desk and one in the living room. This safe works well and is built to last.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nick good purchase
I called their customer service for help entering first prints and they easily walked me through it. Safe operates well so far - no false openings and no trouble reading prints that we want it to read. Fits well beside bed. Wish it were a bit stronger installation and I'll probably make some modifications in the future to strengthen it but it was what I expected in that regard.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CH1CKENF1NGER Nice night stand safe
Having curious 10yr old and 5yr old boys running around the house I needed something to keep my home defense locked but accessible. Overall the design and function is great! In most cases it opens one 1st or 2nd swipe but sometimes takes multiple attempts, be sure to move finger slowly when opening. Scanned every finger just in case it doesn't reconize the print. Hopefully "IF" I ever need it, I remember to swipe slowly to retrieve it. It makes a loud beep when opening but think there is a way to turn that off. Before this purchase I hid my firearm in one spot and ammo in another just in case my boys were to discovered it, which in most cases if I needed it it would be to late. Now it's within arms reach while I lay in bed and is locked and loaded!... Just pray I never have to roll over and open it! Little pricey $ but what's a piece of mind worth? I would definitely purchase again

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RYCHE48 This is a must have item to protect our loved ones....
With the recent accidental gun discharges on the news I decided to get a gun lock that easy to operate and safe enough to deter my children from it. All my family is aware what's inside and understand that if anyone attempts to open it, I will know about it. This products gives me the peace of mind I need. It strong and I am convinced that it will last a very long time.
Within a simple finger swipe I can get to my gun and protect my family and most importantly it is safe.
Thank you for such great product....
