I would have given this safe a five star rating because of its utility. However, it has a design defect. The mini cable that connects the motors shaft with the latchs activating rod eventually breaks. The repeated twisting and pulling (due to frequent openings) fatigues the cable, leading to its breakage. One would think this defect defeats a main purpose of this safe which would be to allow daily openings. Mine lasted seven years (long enough??), which would amount to a cost of about twenty dollars a year, based on todays best prices. (A call to the company indicated they wont repair such out-of-warranty safes, at any price. Also, it was their over-the-phone diagnosis that led me to open the guts to observe the problem). An owner with good mechanical skills might consider jerry rigging a replacement cable. However, reconnecting the internal electronic ribbon (which lacks a secure connector) and reinstalling the close fitting metal encasement (in its cramped space) are additional obstacles to this approach. Ill be donating the safe as a key operated strong box.
Pros: Allows quick access
Cons: Design defect causes interior mechanical breakage
