Before the pros and cons, here's a quick rundown of more information.
-The lock cylinder is a chinese knockoff of a Mul-T-Lock mortise cylinder, not a relatively standard KIK cylinder.
-The keys are chinese knockoffs of Mul-T-Lock dimple keys which are easy to make impressions of and to pick.
-The impact sensor is not a vibration or shock sensor
-The users are not easily added or deleted
-The finish is nicely done
-The fingerprint scanner seems to be very accurate
-it kind of does what it's supposed to do
-The deadbolt assembly itself looked used when I took it out of the box, the nickel finish was worn and the mechanism was rusty
-The screws to attach the two sides of the lock to the door are cheap and I snapped one installing it (see below)
-The holes the screws thread into are threaded collars/tubes that are pressed into the backing plate of the outside of the lock, these tubes aren't well pressed in and sometimes rotate. Additionally the tubes arent perpendicular to the backing plate and are slanted to some degree making it difficult to thread the screws in without bending them into alignment, which further compromises their security since they're pressed in. Lastly, they're not well positioned and force the bolt assembly to be at a slight angle in the hole, which further exascerbates the issue of getting the screws to thread.Read more ›
The impact alarm (a joke) began going off (one night at 3 AM of course) and the lock couldn't be tightened or stopped. I contacted Advanced Actuators; they offerred me this model as a replacement for the discounted price of $250.
The new lock will accept my fingerprints but after an hour of struggling it will not accept either my wife's or her mother's fingerprints NO WAY NO HOW. Apparently smaller female fingers don't work with this model. They include two "enhancer pads" which are alcohol soaked; one was totally dried up. Tried the other, but that didn't work either. I can enter MY fingers, thumbs, etc. but smaller female fingers just don't work.
Of course the tech support people had all gone home when I called and when I tried their online chat the "helpful" person said I was "full of crap" when I described the issues.
I suppose I'll return it and get my $250 back, then reinstall the original and just use it as a keyed lock.
Bottom line: Another cheap Chinese POS, don't waste your money.
The main issue I had was installation, now a lot of people may not have my problem, but should at least be aware that there are 2 upper studs above a standard deadbolt opening that must be drilled in your door. This was were I had problems, my previous had to have holes added to the door as well, and these were in a different location, so more holes in my door, this didn't cover the old ones completely, and my door was metal so not as easy as drilling a clean hole through a wooden door. So we are talking hours is what it took for an install, besides the drilling it was extremely difficult to line up front to back and get everything working just right. The motor seems weak on the lock so if there is any of the slightest binding, the lock will not lock or unlock. So it took a lot of tweaking.
However after a night of intense work to get this just right, the lock itself appears to be a well functioning lock, the finger print reader is very receptive to the correct finger prints and doesn't seem to unlock to other fingers. So I would recommend, just as long as you know what you are getting into. Hope this is of help to someone either way.

I purchased this unit in July 2012. First let me recount the installation. Physically installing the unit is not too difficult. Read morePublished on October 27, 2013 by Bob
I really like this lock. I use it with a passive door handle so I don't have to have keys on me. My only complaint was that it came with a scratch on the face of the lock. Read morePublished on September 10, 2013 by Ryan Mecca
