Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RJGA Avoid the electronic lock at all costs
When this safe was first purchased, it worked fine. After a while, however, the electronic lock would not open the safe. The 'unlock icon' would come on but the handle couldn't be budged. I called the customer support line and the operator told me "Oh, this happens all the time. The solenoid gets stuck and the safe won't open. She said "All you have to do is enter your code and when the 'unlocked' icon shows, hit the upper right corner of the door hard with a hammer and quickly try the handle again." I'm going to replace it with a simple combination lock safe.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SafeAtLast Looks Good-But
The handle is hard to operate and needs a lot of strength. The 4 seconds time between punching in the code and operating the handle is too short.
Was disappointed to read in the literature that if I bolt it to the floor the water proof feature does not work. Buying a fireproof safe that is not water proof is counterproductive...assuming that when there is a fire water will be used to douse it! This was not mentioned in the product description.
Have not encountered any other problems...yet

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 3Ryan Would not recommend electronic lock.
This was a nice safe when it worked correctly. However, after about 6 months, I would enter the factory pass-code onto the electronic keypad and the error light would flash 5 times with 5 beeps and the door would fail to unlock. It then began working again after a month and then stopped working again shortly thereafter; at which point I had to break into the safe to retrieve my valuables (checkbook, keys, etc.) The next safe I buy will have a combination lock or a lock with a key. Please research this problem before purchasing this safe. Thank you and good luck!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LeFrog Great safe for the price
This is a decent safe for the price. Remember that this is a small safe and it can be carried by a single person, so you might want to attach it. The main drawback is that the original 5-digit code that the safe comes with cannot be changed or removed (you can add new codes but the original one is there forever).
I mostly use it to keep keys and other stuff out of reach of the kids. I don't think it would last long with thieves.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jbetschart Good product and seems to work just fine
I wish the key pad lighted up when you hit a button so you could see what you are typing in the dark. I also wish there was a way to turn the beep off so it was silent but other than that this product works great.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by WillStowed Big, heavy, secure
This safe is HEAVY. Nobody's going to run off with it quickly or easily. Also, the bolts are huge. Overkill really. I like that it's fire-proof, but wish that it were also waterproof. That model was an additional $40. I plan to stow valuables and papers inside ziplock baggies, and $40 will buy more ziplock baggies than I'll ever need. In summary, this is a safe purchase.
