mvb biometric vault

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, FL Written on April 12, 2014
this safe was purchased for security around the house. Grand kids around, I wanted safe but quick access to weapon.
I regularly have to run my finger over the sensor 20+ times to get access! if i were getting raped we would be on the second round.
Pros: good idea
Cons: doesn't work...
Would recommend: No

Good safe, good features

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, IA Written on August 19, 2013
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...
Would recommend: Yes

Great, secure and easy access safe

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on July 27, 2012
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...
Would recommend: Yes

Biometric guns safe

Biometrics work well enough after you get it set up. Key pads should work in conjuction with the biometrics.
Pros: Biometric works
Cons: Key pads should work in conjunction with the biometrics...

GunVault Microvault Bio Portable Biometric Pistol Safe, Waterproof w/ Fingerprint MVB500

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on January 16, 2012
Set up was extremly difficult. I assumed from the picures that you could use the hand buttons to unlock the safe along with using the biometrics or scanning your finger prints. Not, you can not use the finger / hand buttons to unlock the safe.
Pros: Holds only one gun
Cons: Set up was difficult; can't use finger controls to unlock safe...
Would recommend: No

Not what it seems..

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, VA Written on September 4, 2011
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....
Would recommend: Yes

gunvault biometric safe

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, NV Written on February 4, 2011
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...
Would recommend: Yes

Great case, but no button access

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, WA Written on June 17, 2010
First off, I will say this is a great little box. The fingerprint reader is top notch, very accurate. Very easy to set up and add fingerprints to.

The only issue is that nowhere in any documentation does it say that the 4 finger button locking that is the Gun Vault trademark does not work. They are for show. The only ways into this box are the key or the fingerprint reader. I would have liked that 3rd option of the eyes closed entry with the 4 buttons, but still, highly recommend this box for securing anything on the go.
Pros: Very good read on the fingerprint reader
Cons: The finger buttons that are the Gun Vault tradmark are not active on this product...
Would recommend: Yes
