Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by portalsm Not a safe safe
Safe is overall ok but it doesn't feel like $400 well spent
First, as you open the box you immediately see that the safe is made to resist fire ok but definitely not burglary due to fairly thin metal being used for the top and sides of the safe.
The lock dial has play of almost 1/2 an inch side to side and the paint on the door arrived chipped.
This safe was visibly installed before (scratches on the bottom of the safe where it was bolted on) which I guess would be "ok" if not for the fact that the lock mechanism didn't work when it arrived.
I had to fix it myself (once you carry it home you won't want to bring it back to the store) and now the safe works fine

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lorax Solid safe for the money
This is a good solid safe with three solid metal bolts that extend on both sides of the door into the steel sides (not plastic holes like some safes.) The combination dial is sturdier than many others and makes more sense than electronic versions that are more likely to fail. The packaging seems to have been improved from what I've read earlier as it came without damage from UPS. The only issue that I have is that the holes in the base that allows you to bolt the safe into the floor are not quite wide enough for a socket wrench to cover the bolt head, so I had to tighten without a wrench. It is heavy enough to be annoying to carry away and with the bolt being sunk into concrete to hand tightened strength, it is very unlikely to be taken out. The adjustable shelf is nice to separate items within the safe.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mesafuzzyz Adiquate, Better than in store Plastic.
Product was as described, good kick weight, fair to midway construction.
Exterior finish is good.
After slight disassembly to change combination. (not recommended I have locksmith capability)
Fire brick materiel was poorly sealed to interior of door.
Fit of door was atrocious, with at least one quarter inch of play .(remedied with 3/8 inch sealing tape).
Solid Three bolt locking, but with very ,and I do mean very poor welding on critical interior components, welding was obviously done by spot arc rod, which is questionable in a modern world of MIG and or TIG welding practices.
I chose this safe because of it's traditional dial combination feature, which works very well (before and after changing combination).
I cracked a five finger gun safe at Menards in three tries (pathetic).
Would recommend because of the traditional dial feature (much harder to crack).
