Space & Size: 5/5

The Sentry Safe Biometric Quick Access has enough space to comfortably fit in one hand gun, say a J & K size revolver or a block 23 and the likes. It is designed specifically to hold one gun and its magazines. Since the gun is compactly placed inside it, moving the box does not thankfully make any metal clinking sound. Furthermore, the size of the safe is apt to keep in the bedside drawer or any other small convenient place.

Build Quality: 5/5

Well constructed with high quality 12 gauge solid steel, the Sentry Safe Biometric Quick Access also has compression gas strut to facilitate using it single-handedly during emergencies without making any sound. However, one point of grievance could be the rubbery and unnumbered keypad, which creates chances of confusion or error while entering the code. But the positive aspect remains that no one can guess your code, by trying to enter different numerical combinations. The safe is lightly foamed on the inside; preventing any sound of the gun against the box, while moving it. Further, the push buttons and the fingerprint scanner have LED lights for trouble-free usage in the dark.

Sturdy. Proper size. Easy to set-up. Primary and secondary fingerprint access. Also, has combination lock and regular lock-key set-up. Very easy to store.
Keys made of rubber makes it prone to error while entering the code. Keys are not numbered, so the sequence has to be memorised. No fire-rating.

Security Features: 4/5

The Sentry Safe Biometric Quick Access provides three types of locking mechanism to ensure high level of security. Along with biometric fingerprint mechanism, there are options of security code, as well as normal lock-key system. However, it is suggested to use the biometric option or both fingerprint access with security code. This will provide better chances of safety. The fingerprint programming allows two sets of prints, primary and secondary, which means apart from the owner himself another trusted person could also access the firearm during emergencies.

The keypad is also highly secured, mainly because it does not have numbers or alphabets or any other symbol on them. One has to know the correct sequence in order to open the safe. This is an additional merit especially with children around, who have the tendency to fidget and may sometimes try to open the safe using various numerical combinations. One drawback, however, is if you enter the wrong code you have to wait for quite a few seconds before you re-enter the code again. This could make a difference during emergency situations. Another downside is that the safe is not certified as fireproof or waterproof.

Packaging & Shipping: 5/5

The Sentry Safe Biometric Quick Access was perfectly packed which prevented the safe from getting damaged during shipping. It was received intact with all the particulars and user manual enclosed. Furthermore, the shipping is free so you do not have to bear the burden of paying extra.

Warranty & Maintenance: 4/5

With only 1 year manufacturer’s limited warranty, the Sentry Safe Biometric Quick Access loses points here. However, maintaining it isn’t really that difficult. One just has to be careful about the keypad as it seems to be a little spongy or rather less durable.
