Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by FIREMAN Terrible DON'T BUY
I bought one and when moving it the whole upper front plastic piece came out of the fire protecting filler behind the plastic. So it became completely useless. Returned it for another, then the plastic handle that latches and secures the box so you can lock it came off. I probably believe this may protect stuff during fire but as far as security goes... Garbage. Don't waste your time. I will be returning for full refund and writing sentry to inform them that the quality of their "safes" are trash.

Bought this tonight and took less than 5 minutes to determine it was not right for me.
The reason is this: The lock is a joke.
The only thing this lock could keep out is a small child. The Majority of the box is constructed of a tough feeling (still plastic) outer shell with something heavy lining it. However, the lock merely secures the the much cheaper plastic latch from coming open. The lock does not interact with the lid itself at all. I have no doubt that an average person could open this while locked with merely a strong yank on the latch. Also, I wonder how well this cheaper plastic holds up in a fire.
One cost-cutting move ruins this whole safe

Loaded this inferior portable safe and was walking with it and the entire handle and black plastic face tore off, darn near smashed my foot, a few inches over and off to the hospital I would have had to gone. Imagine that if you are considering buying this Sentry safe (I would now not trust anything Sentry makes if they can put out this JJUNK), the entire handle and face just tore free from the case!
Yes, I am upset, I waited about 6 months to even use this safe so I am out of the return for refund guarantee so off to the trash bin this think goes.

Bought it in store and when I got home I found out that I could NOT fit documents in it. I don't know about the junkie handle breaking as people have pointed out, but if it can't hold a single folder, what's the point? Did they not consider that when designing it?
This is not a safe. It's a glorified lock box.

The interior allows for 8.5 x 11 sheets to lay flat along with larger cover material. I wish it had a carrying handle but that is a minor problem. Unit seems well made and has a positive latch and seal.

Although I only had this safe for about a year, and the plastic part pulled right out, I contacted the company, and they replaced it for me! Great company, but not so great a safe! We'll see how long this one holds up.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Matthieu Top latch assembly ripped out
I have owned this safe for about 3 years now and open it about twice a year. Today when I opened it, the top latch assembly pulled up and out. It was sitting flat on the carpet and was opened normally. Sentry needs a better design. Looking for a new (not Sentry) safe.
