Good value for the price
Ordered this safe primarily to store a handgun in, but wanted more space for other things such as passports and important papers. Would have liked to had one with a fire rating also, but the price point and functions of this unit seemed very good to me. No issues with setting up the access code and fingerprint scans. I like the fact that you can store so many fingerprints. Allows you to store different fingers, but also several of the same finger with varying placement on the reader so it opens every time. I mounted mine to the floor with lag bolts, but it has the option to secure to the wall and comes with drywall anchors if needed. The only issue I had with the safe is that the plastic battery cover on the inside of the safe had a retaining tab broken off and so the cover would not clip into place. Contacted the company by E-mail and they didn't question me at all. They just said that they would send one out right away - and they did. Overall very pleased with this Viking Biometric safe purchase.

Great biometric safe with keypad/key entry. Fingerprint scanner works flawlessly if programmed correctly!
By David B
I purchased on 1/21/16 and shipped the next day. Received it within a week which is great for a heavy item like this. It arrived it great shape with no dents or scratches. I used the manual from the Viking website. The keys to get in work great. Programming the code for the buttons was easy. I had a hard time at first programming my fingerprint because I tried to just place my fingertip on the scanner. Once I put my fingertip all the way up in the sensor instead of just the fingertip I had no problem registering 4 fingerprints with multiple angles. That's the tip right there to register multiple angles for each fingertip. After that it has worked flawlessly and I am almost 50 years old. I really like the fact that I can get in the safe three different ways. Don't expect it to be thick like a bank vault but it is thick enough for your firearm or valuables. It would take hours to pry this thing open. The light and adjustable shelves are a great addition. The only thing I would add is a back lit keypad and this thing would be perfect. As long as it keeps working I consider this safe a steal for the price compared to the others I have looked at. The Biometric Store has great customer service as they answer questions promptly and even contacted me if I had any more questions or if I had any issues. I wish other companies cared about my satisfaction like The Biometric Store/Viking does!

The quality is good, and the 50 lb
I am 78 years old, and have had no problem with fingerprint. This is an ideal product for someone with a small handgun collection. The quality is good, and the 50 lb. weight keeps most folks from running off with it. You can unlock the safe 3 ways so that if you forget one way, you have 2 other choices. Locking requires just 1 button to press and hold. Safe should be very good to keep children away from your guns. It's not a fire safe. I'm happy to recommend this product.
