Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by EAM Good safe for a decent price
I settled on the Sentry safe because it had all the features I need and HD had it at a better price. The interior padding is great and covers all surfaces to avoid scuffing any contents. The exterior finish is very thick and well done, and the metal lid is very thick. The lid has a piston assist to open, and it opens very quietly. It was very easy to program the personal code, and the blue lit buttons are very easy to see and operate in the dark. Big enough to fit a full-size and extra mag, if you are using it for safe firearm storage. Other more expensive units did not have as thick a metal and their doors open with a forceful bang.
One thing - if you fasten the safe to a surface using the enclosed hardware, be careful not to over-torque the screws. I did this, and warped the unit a bit which caused the lid to be out of alignment. Loosening the screws fixed the issue.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ron Very sturdy; heavier than I thought it would be (that's good). Easy to set up, as long as you follow the directions in the owner's manual. Be sure to register it online, in case you lose (both) keys, or if it malfunctions. I would have rated it five stars, except the paint on the top was a bit bubbled in a couple of places. Strictly cosmetic; doesn't affect operation. Remember to have four AA batteries ready when you set it up.

I bought this safe as a present for my son-in-law. He just purchased his first firearm
and, after talking with my daughter, felt that a good gun safe would make her feel
better about having a gun in the house. It had to keep the gun secure but allow for
quick access. This safe fit the bill. I had heard about Sentry safes and knew that my
mother kept her important documents in a Sentry safe.
This safe is quiet when opening, extremely durable, and has more than enough room for
a Glock 19, a box of ammunition, and a couple of extra magazines. The quick access
buttons make it a bit safer for home defense. It has two keys that will also open the safe.
Overall I believe it was a great safe for the price and I know my daughter feels better.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Zip2011 Sturdy, but slow access
This safe is sturdy and will hold a full sized 1911 pistol. However, the manufacturer markets "quick access" as the main selling point. I have practiced repeatedly with this safe wherein I have attempted to simulate a rapid, high pressure need to open the safe. Unless you hit the keys slowly and squarely the safe will only open a third of the time on first attempt. Suggest owners leave override key in during night or other high risk times.
