I picked this up for a pretty good price and was pleasantly surprised to see it said Made in the USA when I got it, cool. It's big enough to hold some of my papers, data discs of family photos and a couple other things. It gives me real peace of mind whenever I leave the house that even if the worst happens I'll still have some of my most important stuff. They even offer a replacement program where they replace it for free if it does ever serve it's purpose and melt down protecting your stuff!

From their website, it will protect USB drives, CDs, DVDs, memory sticks, etc. from an average fire. I think it protects pictures adequately, but it won't protect floppies or negatives. It's maximum internal temperature should only get to about 350F, so theoretically anything that could survive a half hour in that should make it.

If you want to store things like tax records or have flood risks, don't get this; go get their hanging folder unit that's also waterproof. Another important thing to remember, this unit promises "privacy" not security, so if you need to keep stuff secure this isn't for that. You can order replacement keys for it, I think for $12, so if your kid wanted a peak or someone steals it, no protection.

There's not too much to say about functions, the only moving parts are the key slot (two keys included) and the lid which functions in both the super exciting open position and the somewhat less exciting, but equally necessary closed position. Let the good times roll!

The *only* reasons I give it 4 instead of 5 stars is the locking mechanism is a tad cheesy, though functional, and it's not wide enough to place an 8x10 piece of paper in without folding it. I'd still recommend this unit highly. It's not much money for a 1x security investment.

i just wanted a safe for collected coins and local currency since im overseas. amazon shipped for free which is nice. this safe was better built then the one offered at my local store. comes with two keys and lock functions ok. the keys are alittle weak. it feels like they could bend if twisted with too much pressure. i wanted a safe which was fire proof but not water proof, we have alot of humidity in my house. i would recommend anyone who wants a solid safe for piece of mind from a fire(hope it doesnt happen to anyone) and one that can be stored under the bed and out of sight of wondering eyes.

Update: This safe has held up great. No wetness or smell inside on contents. I live in Japan so humidity is a factor but I control the inside of the house pretty well. I was going to buy crystal packs to soak up any moisture in the air but now I might not.

July 6th 2012: I had my passports and many coins in here. Nothing was ruined or wet when we had to take out our passports to use them for traveling. It seems to have kept out all moisture from Japan's tropical island climate for three years!!! I'm confident that all my important items would be safe during a flood or god forbid a fire would happen.

For those giving negative reviews about the locking mechanism... get a clue! This is a fire safe, meant to keep your items SAFE in a FIRE. (Probably why it says FIRE-SAFE right there in the title.) It is not a security safe. The item description states it has a privacy lock, i.e. to keep your kids from fiddling with it.

Let's disregard that bit of information for one second and make a hypothetical. Let's say, this same fire safe did come with a Fort Knoxx style locking mechanism. The type of lock that only an expert could defeat if they were given hours. Nothing would stop a would be thief from merely picking up the box and taking it to open later with an axe or pry bar.

Why would any rational thinking human think that this little plastic box was a safe?

If you are planning on buying this safe to store your bearer bonds, gold bullion, and "private" home videos, stop... think... there you go. Feels good doesn't it?

This sure seemed like a good idea, but we just tried to open the box the second time in 6 months ad it took us forever to get the key working. We got our stuff out, thankfully, but the key will not open. The keys are also very cheaply made. Buyer beware!!! It's now too late for me to take it back, argh.

While I understand this is not made for heavy security, and is really for protection against fire, be warned that if it falls from 3 feet, the lid will come undone and render the "safe" useless. The hinge is plastic.

I now have to throw this away and find a new safe.

This item was the perfect size and weight for what I was looking for, it was not too bulky. It still has fire protection but its smaller than the other Sentry Fire chests that are available, while still providing adequate storage space for smaller Items. Safe has a quality lock for product its size and it latches very securely. I am very satisfied with my purchase. The only disadvantage with this size fire safe is that it has no handle. I would recommend this product.

Overall I'd rate this box two stars, because it is indeed a box. It has an interior space you can put things in. And that's about all it has going for it. It seems to be 100% plastic, with a foam insulation in between the layers that has water content in it, which is designed to help protect the stuff inside from fire. The lock is hardly a lock at all. They should have just some sort of clasp or hasp, and give you the option of putting your own small padlock on it. As it is, the lock is just a step up from a child's diary.

Also, the manufacturing process evidently leaves something to be desired. I received a defective item. The lock mechanism was never fully assembled at the factory. The inside part of the lock was never attached to the lid, and I can tell because of the plastic tab left over from the molding process that was still connected in the spot where the lock part should have been. I tried to attach it, but there doesn't seem to be a way to do it at home. Seems someone, or some robot, just threw it in the box and sent it off anyway.

Can't someone make a decent lock box that offers a little fire protection and just a little bit of security? I'm not in the market for a real safe, just something that offers more security than a screwdriver or a paperclip can defeat. The product I want doesn't seem to exist.
