IMHO, safes are a huge "you get what you pay for".

That said, any properly installed safe is better than no safe, and even the cheapest safe will typically keep all but skilled thieves out (again, when properly installed).

You'll find many that are safe snobs (ARFCOM! LOL) and won't accept anything but the best. Seriously though, basic safe is probably good enough for 98% of us. So if it fits your needs and budget, get what works for you!

You can't stop a determined thief. I will have the safe bolted to the ground for sure. This is better than what I'm using right now. And I don't think I'll ever fill it up.

Really, what are you using right now? One of those inexpensive metal closets? Those suck!

ETA: Bolted to the floor, and if there is any way to block off the sides of the safe with walls, bricks, blocks etc. Two primary ways a safe gets broken into: #1 Knocked on it's back, and a big fuckin' pry-bar used to pull the door open. #2 sides or bottom cut out with an angle grinder.

i was going to jump on this when i saw it but its just a bit too big for the closet and electric vs dial lock. I get past a dial lock for some reason. I even emailed cannon but they wont be making a dial for this model anytime soon.
