Let me say this: I am not sure if it was just my nv300 that was defective or if all nv300s are like mine. As soon as you open the safe, you immediately notice a strong stench. Although unpleasant, there are worse things, and i guess that can be an easy fix by airing it out for a few days or by removing the patting and replacing it with some of your own... The major problem with MY nv300 was that it did not securely tightly when it was locked. I could easily seperate it a good 1/4 inch to about 1/2 inch with minimal effort with my hands. This is why I am about to send my nv300 back. Someone, more specifically, my nephews could easily pry my safe open with a gap that large. I know this safe is very inexpensive so that i should not expect too much. But it should secure much better than that! It looks and feels sturdy, but it just does not close tightly.
Pros: Inexpensive, light, very portable
Cons: Very strong smell, Does not secure properly
