After researching a number of biometric safes, this one appeared to be the best compromise of price and quality. I have been very pleased with my purchase. The safe is steel and quite strong. I am able to fit 4 handguns and ammo with room to spare. The fingerprint recognition has worked flawlessly for dozens of open / close cycles. I have the unit bolted to a shelf and lagged to the rear wall; it is very secure and I'm sure will deter any potential thief.
This is a great purchase. I did my research and went with a Mini Deluxe for one reason - it comes with an AC adapter (even though the description said it did not). The battery life is suppose to be horrible. The included AC adapter allows you to use it without batteries. Just plug it in the wall and go (the ac jack is the silver thing on the exterior left hand side). I mounted mine on its side inside a bedside table (had to buy shorter mounting screws). Works great and provides quick access. The size is pretty small - just big enough for a full-size 9mm and a clip with enough room to get your hand around it - but not room for much else. I couldn't get two pistols in there or a box of ammo. The keypad works just like it is suppose to. Takes less than 3 seconds to open it with the proper code. The codes are easy to set and the multi-digit punches make it feel like it's even safer with children in the house. Overstock's price was one of the best I found and their shipping is cheap as well. I received it within a week. Hard to beat.
I do like this safe!! I knew it would be small so I am OK with that fact. I am able to stand my shotgun ( with tack light and side saddle ) plus my AR ( with Red Dot site, forward grip and tack light ) both upright in the safe, and of course there is the upper shelve for my one handgun. It was nice to see there is a second set of shelve brackets built it, and you can buy another shelve as an accessory later ( however right now everywhere it was listed shows Out of Stock ), I can just cut and mount my own shelve on the brackets of course. The finger-print reader is SPOT ON and works wonderfully!! The unit is indeed solid, but with some time and a crowbar a bad guy could get into it in under 30 mins I think. For the price, I KNOW I have the best safe I can afford, and the easy finger-print access is a MAJOR plus!
I just got this. It arrived super fast. The fingerprint reader took two fingerprints from me and my wife easily and it has open the door every time. Not super fast, but as fast or faster than a combination safe. I have a finger touch sequence-style safe at work and this one is much much faster and easier and best of all, no combo or key to remember or find. Get them before they are gone. It is not fireproof, but not many are.....
