Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by alex Poor quality of lock
I used the safe for little more than year and lock stopped to work. Limited warranty was already expired, also I urgently needed my documents. After an hour of attempt to open it using the key I managed to break the lock.
May be I can accept the failure of the lock - after all everything sometimes breaks. My major disappointment was how easy I could open it with hammer - just with two easy hammer hits - the construction is absolutely unreliable!
So, if your need fire protection the safe my be ok, but as a protection from burglar - it's just a joke.

I hope I don't need the Water and Fire resistant features ! It seem well built and sturdy and the price is good.

The unit is built very well. Glad it is fire and waterproof resistant. Some units are only fire proof.

They don't tell you anywhere in their usage info, that you have to open the case two or three times a month for air circulation. I sent an e-mail to Sentry about the moisture content of the material the safe is made of, and if I could use moisture absorbent packs to prevent moisture damage (which thy are not responsible for). The reply was "Open the case 2 or 3 times a month for air circulation).
We have been traveling every year on trips lasting two or three months. This would make opening the case as they advised impossible, leaving us open for "Moisture Damage" which they do not warrantee.
Other than that, the case is exactly what I want.
Am returning the case

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JT Perfect fit
If your looking for something to hold your birth certificate and a few other things this is perfect, it is big enough to fit a regular piece of paper but nothing bigger. It's heavy duty.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Plantzman Excellent value and quality
This fire AND water resistant chest has excellent quality and well worth paying the price difference over the fire resistant box. Only thing to check is to verify that the inside dimensions fit what you want to store inside.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by StacyRene Great buy - but small interior
I needed a fire/water proof safe that was portable. Something for SSNs, marriage license, birth certs, passports, life insurance and some small jewelry pieces. The case is very durable and well constructed. It is quite heavy though, but this is due to fire/water proof construction.
I was however disappointed that the inside dimensions were way smaller than the outside dimensions. And the interior dimensions are not listed on the site. The case barely holds an 8X11 paper flat and is only about 2.5-3inches deep. I made the size work for me but I had to fold some papers.
If you have some bulkier items that will take up more space, you will need to upgrade to a bigger size safe.

Not as heavy duty as I thought it would be but hope I never have to find out if it does the job.
