Biometrics doesn't work well at all

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, IL Written on August 31, 2013
I purchased the Barska after reading many reviews that said the biometrics were very good. I bought 2 of the smaller models and they work great. This model just doesn't work well at all. It can take 7 or 8 attempts before it will open. The first safe came in and the door was mis-aligned so the door would not open without me pulling very hard on the door. The biometrics did not work very well on the first safe I received either. So after spending $25.00 to ship it back I decided it was not worth another $25.00 to return it again so I just use the key pad.
Pros: Key pad on front
Cons: Biometrics only work once in a while...
Would recommend: No

Barska Safe

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, NY Written on April 25, 2013
Packaging was poor, the post office did it's best to trash it and though the safe was OK, everything else in the box was trashed. Optics Planet said they would replace the crushed batteries but I have yet to see anything
Pros: dual keypad option
Cons: Biometric keypad has some trouble, need multiple tries...
Would recommend: Yes

Disappointed!

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, WA Written on March 11, 2013
Very disappointed in this purchase. Setup at first seemed easy with the fingerprints. Was a little tricky getting it to read some of the fingerprints, but thought it was all done, when the reader would only accept them a couple of times then would stop recognizing them. My wife and I both had the same issue. We burned through the factory batteries just trying to get it to record and consistently accept our fingerprints. Ultimately, this is not a system I would trust in an emergency. Safe went back and I'm searching for a different brand.
Pros: Good features
Cons: noisy shelf; squeeky locks and door; inconsistent fingerprint reader; not reliable and burns up batteries....
Would recommend: No

Barska Biometric Safe

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, PA Written on November 2, 2012
Wanted to purchase a biometric safe but was concerned with reading the fingerprint in an emergency, so the backup keypad was the perfect solution. Heard alot of reviews on other brands that they don't read well. I had zero problems with it opening with my fingerprint. It opened every single time!
Pros: Simple to use
Cons: Haven't had any yet...
Would recommend: Yes

Great quick access safe

Pros: quick access
Cons: a little noisey...

Biometric Safe

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, TX Written on May 10, 2012
This safe is enough for what I need, but there are a couple of things I would change. The shelf inside the safe is cheap and has no cover, so it makes a lot of noise when adjusting it or taking things in or out. It is a perfect size for my Glock 23, several clips for both the Glock and my hunting rifles as well as multiple boxes of ammo. It comes with a cable for securing the safe, but the body of the safe itself feels light or soft when compared to the door of the safe. For the money, it is just about what I would expect. It was very easy to set up and I would recommend this safe. I did not need anything fancy; just somewhere to keep ammo and guns locked away from a toddler that has started getting into everything.
Pros: easy to use, easy to hide
Cons: not fire proof, interior shelf...
Would recommend: Yes

sturdy, and reliable

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, PA Written on February 3, 2012
This safe makes access to my guns fast and easy, even in the middle of the night. It DOES beep when accessing it, however, because of the setup of my house you can't hear it outside my bedroom. I have mine secured inside a piece of furniture, so I went the extra step and wired in some LED lighting. I removed the door alarm trigger on the hinge side of the door and replaced it with a switch to activate my lighting inside the safe. This is great to keep your pistols out of little hands too.
Pros: Easy access, well designed, reliable, multiple access methods, secure
Cons: 1/8" steel door, beep on access...
Would recommend: Yes
