Safe works great, but it could use a shelf in in for another area of storage. The safe has the ability to turn the beep off and enter and secure the safe quietly. I stored 4 prints for the fingers I use and have not had a denied access yet. Mounting hardware is useless, so i made my own holes and lagged the unit to studs. Pros: good reader, can operate in stealth Cons: thin steel, chinese, could use a shelf

We needed a biometric (thumbprint) safe that was more affordable than some of the other brands we looked at. We researched all brands before buying and this Barska uses the exact same thumbprint scanner mechanism as one of the more expensive brands. This particular scanner mechanism has one of the lowest fail/false reading ratings out there and is very durable and user friendly. We were a little disappointed when we noticed the design of the locking pins. They are good pins but the design of the safe is such that when they are extended (locked position), they just sit behind a lip on the door frame. They are not received into any pin holes which would create a more reliable hold/lock. This basically means that anyone looking to "bust" the safe could do so by prying back the lip of the door frame, which would allow room for the pins to slip through and the door to open. Usually the pins are received by pin holes, creatting a hold that is much harder to "bust". BUT, our purpose for the safe was to store handguns where our children won't be able to access them and this safe will serve that purpose well as our children won't be attempting to "bust" the safe anyways! Also, we would have preferred a safe that stands upright (with the door on the large panel)versus this one that lays down (with the door on the short end) because you get more practical use of space in one that stands(especially if there is a shelf already built in). But overall I would say that we got a good... Read More...

Great medium size safe. Perfect for keeping both Glocks, holster, and mags with room to spare. Reader works great and will scan multiple times if you do not have correct finger placement. Front door seems solid but sides are very thin. Will keep out kids for sure but not someone who really wants in. Loud beep is annoying but does let you know if someone is getting in it. Overall highly recommended. Pros: Biometric entry, ease of scanning finger print, size Cons: Loud beep upon opening, thin gauge metal sides

Great safe for the money and I'm confident that my little people can't get into it. Definitely worth the wait and price. If you're looking for a good quality safe without spending tons of money to keep your firearm safe then look no further. Pros: Only opens to my print! Cons: Having the entire safe as solid as the door.

Everything about this safe is great. I find the fingerprint sensor works great, much better than sensors that use the "swipe" method. The only real negative is that it beeps loudly when opened. I use this to store a gun for self defense, and I don't want to alert a burglar to me moving or going into a safe, but otherwise it's great! Pros: great fingerprint sensor, good capacity, low price Cons: very loud beeping noise

this would be a perfect safe if I could turn of the beeping. I dont want to notify the intruder that I am opening a safe by it beeping. Is there a way to turn off the beeps?

Had some trouble getting my fingerprint to work after installing the safe on a shelf in my closet. Then I reset the recognition process and it worked fine. I think the problem is that the angle of my finger on the glass was different where it was set with the safe on my bed than on the shelf which was about head high. Maybe this should be mentioned in the instructions. Pros: It does what I bought it for. Cons: A little hard to get set up for my fingerprint.

I have owned 3 fire arms. Two were stolen from my home. This time they will have to rip out walls to get it. My greatest concern about owning a hand gun is that it not fall into the hands of criminals. I have every confidence that it will not, with this safe, but it does require serious secure instolation.

This is a great product. My reason for buying it was it was marked from around $450 to $189. I thought at those prices I couldn't go wrong so I ordered 2 of them because I have a 9 year old grandson who spends weekends with us and will NOT leave a gun where he can get to it. I don't even feel comfortable with it unloaded and the ammo stored somewhere else and the gun having the cable lock run through it so that's why I wanted one but I am so comfortable with loaded guns locked in this safe I bought another safe and 3 more guns. I never did feel the home protection part of owning a firearm with my gun locked up tighter than a drum either but now, just by using my fingerprint I can have a loaded gun in my hand in under 5 seconds so I feel like the home is protected like it needs to be these days. This is a well built safe that can be locked down where nobody is going to run off with the entire safe either. I won't give away that piece of info so you'll have to take my word for it, these safes aren't going anywhere.

Overall a good value for the safe. Pros: well designed Cons: fingerprint reader is not as reliable as I had hoped. Finger has to be in EXACT original location.

Great safe, just what I wanted as far as the Biometrics. I only wish there was a size smaller with the same biometric for use in a vehicle. But safe is easy to set up and works every time. Great for keeping loaded handguns away from teens, children, anyone you don't want to have access. Pros: Biometric is easy to setup and use Cons: loud beep

Adequate safety/security for my needs. I want a safe to keep certain things out of my children's reach. I now own two of these, so I must think they're okay. The door is great. The other walls of the safe could be a bit more heavy-duty. Still, this safe gets the job done for what it is designed to do. Pros: Easy setup, easy to use, relatively secure Cons: Could be a bit more substantial for the price

I never write reviews, but I'm so happy with y purchacse, that I just had to... I bought this safe because I tend to forget things easily, I always end up losing keys and passcodes to all of my other safes. This one makes it quick, simple, and stress-free to keep all of my important belongings safe and secure. It beeps to let you know when the batteries are getting low, and also if you leave the door open too long. I absolutely love that, because like I said, I forget things. The fingerprint scanner is very accurate. I set up my prints and then had everyone else in my house to try to unlock it with every one of their fingers, and all unauthorized prints were denied. I'm sure that someone could bust into it with a few good whacks from an ax, but it wouldn't be easy. Still, this is a very good product. It was just what I've been searching for. I'll be buying another one soon. I love it.
