I was skeptical about purchasing the biometric scanner after reading several reviews about poor fingerprint recognition. After setting it up and attempting to open it over and over again, I had no problems at all with this unit. Of course, when you swipe too quickly, it doesn't recognize, but a normal speed swipe takes literally 1-2 seconds. If you need faster access than that, I don't think any other safe will offer it. I set up my wife's fingerprint and she was able to unlock the safe 10 out of the next 10 tries. Pros: Reliable, and quick access to home defense pistol Cons: Don't have any yet

great idea, good design and securely built. The biometric reader is slow and unreliable. It usually takes 2 or 3 tries to open. Will not work under stress or time constraints. Design should include combo option with the keypad. Good air travel safe. Pros: very good design and secure Cons: biometric reader slow

This is a missleading sale... the "trademarked" hand key pad doesnt work on this model. The biometric reader is hardly functional... 1 in 10 times it may work with a registered print. There are cheeper mobile safes out there just as good... that work with just a key (Thats all you will get this to work with). Would not rely upon this for my life, at night, in my home. Pros: Small portable size... robust build Cons: Biometric reader sucks, keypad doesnt work.

I purchased this safe to have safety and access away from my regular gun safe. Overall, I think this is a good product and I would recommend it to others. You can limit the access by fingerprint which is nice. There is a backup key also. It is a little frustrating when you may have to swipe your finger multiple times to get it to open. It is reasonably quick access. Overall it seems to be well built. Pros: individually secured, controlled access Cons: occassionally you have to swipe your finger several times to make it work

took a few minutes to set up, but has worked almost flawless... Pros: solid, compact Cons: small...

This vault works very well on the night stand. It also satisfies the need to prevent access by any unauthorized person. The vault seems to be well made. The biometric feature simplifies the access to the weapon but I think it could work a little faster.

Works as expected. Only issue I have is that the user cannot bypass the biometric pad and use the actual finger pads for access. Had I know that, I would have purchased the keypad version and not opted for the biometric one.
