Waste of $$$$$

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, IN Written on May 5, 2014
I purchased 3 of these units and 1 of the SVB 500 units because we have guns and small grandchildren. I set them up per the instruction manual and had my one year old grandson try and open it, guess what? he opened it right up. I contacted this site for fear that maybe I had set them up incorrectly, I left several messages and NO ONE called me back or contacted me back in any way. I wished I would not have thrown all the boxes away as I would send them back. Please do not buy these with hopes of keeping your family safe, they do not work. There could be a tragic outcome and a real liability issue. ...

Defective

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on July 24, 2013
The first safe I purchased would not unlock without the key. I could successfully register my fingerprints, and swiping the fingerprint reader would cause the "beep" to sound, the green LED to light, and the locking motor to grown. But it would not open.

Two customer "support" lackeys tried to convince me that I needed a better 9V battery. Eventually they shipped a replacement safe.

The same exact batter worked fine with the replacement safe.

Unfortunately, the replacement safe has the opposite problem of the original safe; it will not LOCK consistently.
Pros: Looks nice
Cons: Doesn't work / poor design...

A gunsafe should be reliable. That is that every time you attempt to open it it should do just that. In an emergency you do not have time to play around with a product that may work.It MUST work everytime--your life may depend upon it.
I have the digetal gunsafe and it works perfectly every time. The biometric gunsafe is NOT reliable.
Pros: NONE
Cons: PRODUCT SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM THE MARKET...

Fingerprint recognition

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, FL Written on January 27, 2013
This vault recognized my fingerprint a couple of times then quit recognition although my husband's fingerprint is recognized almost immediately every time. Don't know it it's my small finger that causes the issue or what.
Cons: Learning and recognizing fingerprints is not as easy as it should be....

Safe Keeper

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, FL Written on November 10, 2012
This GunVault MVB1000 Biometric Safe is very rugged and built with high quality components. The security cable is a nice option to have when attaching it to a anchor point in your vehicle. Having dual entry options is nice to have for back-up purposes. The only difficultly I experienced was when I had to register my fingerprint with the biometic reader. The first time I registered it, it did not appear that my finger was flat, thus, it took me 3 to 4 fingerprint swipes to open the safe. When I re-registered for a 2nd time, I kept my finger flat through the entire process and now the MVB1000 opens up on the first swipe. One suggestion that I have if you intend to keep it close to your bed and in a locked position, make sure you store it in a position or same plane as the swiping action with your registered finger. If not, you may have to swipe it a few times to gain access and this may reduce your reaction time to establish a self-defensive position with your pistol or revolver. Great security safe.
Pros: High Quality; Rugged Construction; Dual Entry Options; Interior Space
Cons: Must Keep Finger Flat to Register with Biometric Fingerprint Reader...

GunVault MVB 1000

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on April 10, 2012
MVB 1000 - I liked the case size which holds two pistols plus clips. Additionally, the band under the cover holds papers, etc. The cable is very useful to secure to furniture or the vehicle frame. My only complaint is that it is difficult to consistently open the case despite registering my fingerprint a half a dozen times. My early success rate was about 20% which I have increased to about 75% with a slow careful finger motion.
Pros: Nice size, biometrics, cable, great price
Cons: Consistency in opening...
