This is a total redo of my initial review which gave the Locksaf 1 star because it had what I assume a bad scanner-reader. I could not get the safe to open with any consistency. I am amending my rating to 5 stars because of 2 things. One, is for the way the Blade Shop handled my issues by shipping me a new unit with a shipping label to send the old one back, no questions asked. Secondly, the new unit works flawlessly and deserves 5 stars, IMO.

As to the customer service, here's more. The new unit had a nice handwritten note from Keysha, an employee of Blade Shop apologizing for my trouble and giving me the name and number of Keith, the owner of the Blade Shop to call if I had further problems. I did call to ask a question about which box I should ship back to him and we ended up chatting for about 20 minutes. Nice guy. He was aware of my review and said that Rick, the owner of Locksaf had seen it too and had called him to make sure he did everything possible to make me happy because he knows his product is the best on the market now and the problems with my unit were an anomaly. It appears that that is the case as my new Locksaf works just as advertised and I am completely satisfied that I bought the right biometric safe.

If you are in the market for a biometric safe you should pull the trigger on this one. You will more than likely get a perfect unit, but if there's a problem you're in good hands with either the Blade Shop or Locksafe because they will make it right for you. Thanks for reading.

I bought this because i wanted a biometric safe that had a key backup
If you've looked, there are only a few that fit this bill.

I've had it for about 3months.

I chose this model b/c there are no reports of the locking mechanism failing, unlike
a main competitor.
The safe was sold out on the manufacturer's website, at retail price. Delivery off Amazon was
no problem.
Registration of two fingerprints was simple, and the device is pretty reliable.
It is not 100% reliable on the first read, probably more like 75%, a second attempt will
always get it open. It's fast, but not instantaneous. Also, it makes a click as it opens.

If you think you need to be able to open a safe silently, with 100% accuracy (one read), and instantaneously, you will be disappointed.

On the other hand, if you need a reliable biometric safe that works well, and has a back up in case of failure, you'll find this perfect.

I bought this gun safe for my husband for Christmas. He wanted to keep his handgun and clip in his nightstand for easy access, but out of the hands of our two little boys. This Biometric safe works like a charm...very easy to program with our index fingerprints (took just minutes to do for both of us) and has opened instantaneously every time. I test it out every now and again, just because it works so well. You press an activating button that lights up the fingerprint scanner and then swipe your finger. It's a very sturdy, hefty metal box with a nice thick foam pad and plenty of room for a gun (or two) and several clips. It also comes with keys to open the safe. We are both very happy with this product.

I struggled with whether to rate this one star or five and compromised with myself at three. Let's start at the beginning. I bought this based on the reviews, especially the 30 day guarantee that it could be returned for any reason within 30 days. That appealed to me, especially since the reviews were so mixed as to whether this fingerprint technology is ready for prime time.

The safe is very well designed and constructed. It would be difficult to break into and in my mind, is probably the higgest quality of its kind.

When I received the unit and programmed it, it seemed to be working. I continued testing it and began to notice that it was tempermental. Sometimes it would open for me on the first try and sometimes only after a few tries. I also programmed my wife's prints and she seemed to have worse luck with it than I did. It goes without saying that given the intended use, it really isn't the right fit if it cannot be depended on to open the first time.

Near the end of my 30 day trial period, I contacted the company and told them I thought I might need to return it because I was not getting consistent results. Believe it or not, the other reviewers who said the owner handles customer service issues were right! I spoke with the owner of the company, who had me try several things which did not seem to help and ended up arranging an exchange for me. He said they would test the unit that I had returned and in the meantime I could see if a replacement unit worked any better.

The owner did say that there is a small percentage of the population who, for whatever reason, are incompatible with fingerprint technlogy because their fingerprint is not consistent. He did give the example of people with a burn or a scar; I have neither.

Although this safe seems relatively high quality compared to all the other safes I have seen in the same price range (and lower).
There are a few features I didn't like, and some functions which I didn't find acceptable. I have returned mine to the seller because it didn't fit my needs.
Please note that I didn't go out and buy a cheap safe. I looked around and read reviews and spent $299 because I wanted something that met my admittedly high standards.

GOOD STUFF FIRST:
The key is amazing, I can't imagine ANYONE being able to pick this thing in less than a few hours with an extensive tool set. Would be easier to just go at it with a sawsall or a crow bar! It would probably stop someone with a big screw driver, or a hammer, but wouldn't stop anyone with power tools and metal bits/blades, or a crow bar longer than 2 feet long. I think it would definitely stop kids or teenagers who don't want to leave a mark on it though.
Seems well made, and sturdy. Easy to use and program.

MY DIS-SATISFACTIONS: (others may disagree with my findings, but this is what *I* experienced.)The fingerprint scanner has a loud beep every time you use it. No way to turn it down or OFF. The Fingerprint scanner is good, but not as fast as I thought it would be. Even if you carefully hold your finger in a similar position and pressure every time, it sometimes takes more than 2 seconds to recognize your finger. And maybe one out of every 5 times or so it fails to recognize your finger and you have to try again. This means every 20-40 times you open with a finger you might have to try three times to get it to open, and it could take up to 6-7 seconds total for that time. To me that is not good enough.
