Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cementmixer Great buy. Liked so much I just ordered a second one.
This safe was much heavier than I expected. The push button access is quick and reliable. I am able to open this in complete darkness due to the raised "stub" on the first push button. I like how the door pops open when the correct code is entered. I like that the combination is user programmable. I like that fact that a back up key is provided should the battery ever be dead. Very will built.
Some reviews are saying this can be broken into by theives. At this price, understand this product is not intended to be a high security "SAFE" that even the best safe cracker in the world cannot break into. BUT it is a very well built safe that when mounted at home or in your vehicle will do what I purchased it for. To keep unwanted hands from gaining quick access to the contents. If someone uses a prybar and a sledge hammer, they are going to get it. For that kind of security you would have to spend much much more.
I'm very happy with this purchase.
In addition, Home Depot has the best price I could find and shipping was free too. I liked this one so much, I just ordered another.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JoeLa drains new duracell batteries in a few weeks
I like this safe if it didn't drain brand new batteries in a few weeks. I received this last Christmas and I've put 5 sets of new batteries in it already. Once I didn't even use the keypad to test it and the batteries drained in about 6 weeks. I will gladly update this review if support fixes or replaces with equivalent one that works. Because when it works its really nice. I mounted mine on the side of my night stand and its really easy to get to. The buttons aren't too bad and it was pretty easy to program. At least it keeps the combination when the batteries run out.

Nice efficient package. Well made, hefty and easy to use.
It's NOT silent and I noticed that I needed to oil many of the screws and joints as they rusted a little in storage. The buttons are fussy, press deliberately and practice opening regularly for your anticipated emergency. There's plenty of room for your weapon, some ammo, a spare mag or torch. It has 2 bolt holes in the bottom for fastening it down so it's not mobile. I think I'll put one in the car also.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The Kiltman Sentry Pistol Safe Works First Time and Every Time
I purchased this safe for my pistol and ammo. Key Override is excellent in the event the batteries go bad without the owner noticing and the programming of the 4 blue buttons is easy. It opens quickly and quietly. I asked someone to listen just a few feet away and another with the telephone 3 inches from the safe door and they did not hear anything. Excellent. It is not to big and not to small. I would make a good box to keep other items too.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Xiggy4ever You just can't beat this safe!
I've had this safe for about 5 months now, the batteries are going strong. I open this safe everyday @ least two times a day, sometimes more and have yet to change the batteries. When ever the safe is opened the LED flashes green or red depending on the battery's level of power... Mine is still green :), I love how the hydraulic strut quietly (not silently) but still very quietly opens the safes door for easy access.
The button "mash" takes a bit getting used to but after a few times of practice it's pretty much not a problem, one thing is the buttons cannot be pressed as fast as a person can "peck" at them however I have found that using your thumb for a solid press is accepted as a confirmed key press by means of the LED lighting up.... With this said I still am able to open the safe using my 6 "digit" combination in less than
3 seconds, I say "digit" because the safe is not labeled visually by means of numbers.
The safe has a beveled edge so that your everyday thief cannot pry it open using a simple screw driver, given time a would be thief can figure out the combination especially if you do not secure the safe to the floor or wall and they are able to steal the safe, take it home, and peck at the buttons in numerical order.
SECURE your safe!!!!
While I was @ Home Depot I also purchased 4 large lag bolts, drilled four holes in four corners of the safe (I did not use the lag bolts that came with the safe" they seemed a bit too "dinky" to me for the security of my fire arm) and secured it to the floor supports in my closet.
I love how the LED's light up with the press of any button in a cool blue illumination.
Mind you that if you program a 6 digit combination, the safe requires a total of 7 buttons to be depressed, one press to "wake up the electronics" and the rest of the 6 for the combination.
Only one pistol and two mags can fit into this safe, but they fit comfortably.
I definitely didn't expect the safe to be as hefty as it is, that little sucker has got some weight to it, sentry definitely didn't skimp on the steel required to construct it.
If your in the market for a single pistol safe, definitely pick this one up, you won't be disappointed, I've got two of them, one for my Glock 21, and one for my wifies Glock 26.
