Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jk Good, solid safe
A good, solid, heavy safe that was relatively easy to bolt down. The electronic lock is easy to use and so far has been reliable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pete price / value good, safe and easy to handle!
I received my Mesa 1.7cu Safe in a big box, wrapped in well with no scratches.
It's a nice safe and with the electronic lock very easy to handle. Very solid for my opinion.
No plastic stuff inside! Carpet inside is comfortable. Smells a little bit when it's new.
I left the door open 3 days, smell was gone.
I'm very satisfied with the product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Geeperz The Mesa safe is solid and gives confidence that it will provide the security you want.
A recent home burglary finally got me to admit I needed a home safe to provide burglar/fire protection I was lacking. Initially I looked at various safes commonly found at home improvement and department stores, but was very disappointed with what I found. Those safes generally did not have the look, heft or feel of a real safe, and as a result I did not have confidence they would provide the protection I was looking for. After doing substantial on- line research, however, I discovered exactly what I was looking for in a Mesa safe. This safe is all metal, not plastic, and looks and feels substantial. It has a 2-hour fire rating, is heavy (140 pounds) and has predrilled holes for bolting it to the floor. The digital lock is easy to use and reliable. After I installed this safe in my home, my wife and I finally have regained a sense of security that was lost when our home was burglarized. We are both very happy with the Mesa safe and literally now use it every day.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Reviewer927412 Nice safe, but can take a lot of time to setup
This seemed to have some trouble in shipping, which I understand is not uncommon with safes, but it took a long time to clean up all the mess. First of all, there were bits of styrofoam and cardboard scattered about when I opened up the slightly damaged box. Then there were silica beads everywhere; I will be finding these things for months, I'm sure. The plastic that was supposed to be protecting the finish of the safe had been torn through and the safe was very dusty and there's a blemish on top of the keypad collar that I can't fix. Anyway, after a lot of vacuuming up styrofoam bits and silica beads, and thoroughly wiping down every surface of the safe, I had a nice-looking enclosure for my stuff.
Then it came time to set it up. Well, I couldn't do anything with it because it didn't have the battery it was supposed to come with. So fast-forward a day when I could go out and buy a battery for it and I'm back to setting up the key codes. The steps in the Owner's Manual are a bit off, because you can't do any of the first steps until the battery has been installed, which is inexplicably listed as the last step. Maybe if it had come with the battery already installed then that would make sense.
► KEY CODES
After the battery was easily installed, everything else went pretty smoothly, although the manual could be clearer. There's also some confusion because the manual listed here on the Home Depot site is slightly different from the one that arrived with the unit. The online one has 3 default key codes; the shipped one only 2. Once you know the process, it's super easy to change the codes.
► INTERIOR & BOLTING
I finally have access to the inside of my safe, where it's a mess of silica beads and 4 silica bags (with 1 bag burst open). Once I vacuum all of that up, I have a very clean-lined, carpeted interior with an adjustable carpeted shelf. There are 4 bolt holes in the bottom near each corner with plastic caps on the inside of the safe. The instructions for installing the bolts are very poor. There are also no instructions on whether or not the silica bags are still needed.
► FIRE PROTECTION
I don't see how this is supposed to protect from fire with 4 openings for bolts in the bottom and enough of a gap in the door to spill all these silica beads. I imagined the caps on the interior would screw in and be constructed of a more fireproof material, but I was wrong.
Override key with instructions on how to access the key slot, user manual, 1-year warranty card, registration card, 2 concrete bolts (wood lags not included), 2 spare mounts for shelf, 3 serial number tags, which is good because one was illegible (destroyed in the box damage).

General construction was what I expected. The bolt anchors that came with the safe were the wrong size for the safe. Had to by smaller anchors because the original hole provided to tighten the bolts were to small to fit any kind of wrench. Had no problem changing the safe code. I guess you get what you pay for. It is a good safe for average security.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ray It's okay but that's all.
internal parts won't stay in the door. Not as much room as I'd like. I did see one at Wal-mart which was slightly larger but of course the price was different. Theirs was 100 dollars less.
