Have been looking for a while for a good safe, been looking everywhere and finally bought one from amazon for £280 6 weeks ago which was the cheapest place by far and many other were coming up at £400 by the time delivery was included. Now shocked to find it at £199.99!!

This think is heavy and definately needs two people two lift unless you are the worlds strongest man/woman!. With the number of house burglaries increasing, then at least having all those important possesions and those valuable photos stored on a backup drive in the safe will mean all is not lost.

Also made sure that the safe is fire protection AND water resistant as had seen some were only fire resistant, which means your things are safe till the fire brigade arrive................!!!!!!!

Just my thoughts, if you can find a better deal please post link, so everybody can benefit.

Cheers

If its your first big price drop on an amazon item sometimes at their discretion they will honour a refund if you send them a nice email. I know they have ended the 30 day price drop policy but sometimes if you email them they honour a price drop in certain circumstances. :thumbsup:

BTW check the cylinder keys in it are the bic pen proof ones .

Assume they must get some mega bulk discount fomr most shipping companies?
#6
have to say when they deliverd ours, the guy asked if I would help him as the instructions on the pack were for a two man lift and he was alone, felt sorry for him as he was quite a small chap. Between the two of us we managed it..... but lets put itthis was, now it is installed it will not be moving again!!

I've been thinking about getting one of these to protect our valuables (camcorder tapes, photos etc). I can't tell (from the Amazon site) if the capacity is enough for what I'd like to secure though.

Edit: Ah... It doesn't look like these are suitable for tape media. (source: [url]www.sentrysafes.co.uk[/url])

Will send an email now, cross my fingers

Dont now about this, did have a look at link, says bike locks, but then talks about barrell locks, dont know the answer, but alot of people on that website saying that any lock given enough time and patients can be broken into, so all safes may not be safe?

We had the same thoughts, but are now having all of our photos scanned in also our negatives, think the negative device is a veho, seeing as we have the photos scrolling over the TV screen though our PS3, otherwise we would never really look at the photos, trying to go space age as you can tell!
#10
Same here. I haven't got around to scanning all of our photos in yet, but I've copied all of my video tapes (VHS, 8mm, Hi8, MiniDV and HDV) onto my backup hard disk, but I'd like to keep the original tapes locked away securely. I'd hate to lose them, as they date back to when I was 18 years old (some 19 years ago!), and I have footage of all three of my kids, from birth.

The only problem with getting a safe, is that it shows there's something worth nicking :S ... I never put a lock on my cases when going on holiday etc etc. As soon as you increase security it's obvious you have something to protect!

Though I doubt most home burglers will be equipped with the relevant cutting gear!

As most banks are now paying near enough 0% interest on savings it might be a good idea to get this to keep your cash, gold bars, deeds the odd diamond neckalace and bonds in. I think I've been watching too many action/thriller/spy movies.

I got a much smaller one for about £40 from Homebase which just holds my passport, other docs, spare keys and external hard disk. It's screwed into the bottom of my wardrobe and hidden under shoes etc.

Well worth it for peace of mind as it's fireproof too :thumbsup:

Does this safe drill into the ground? If not seems a bit pointless as a couple of robbers will just make off with it!
If it does and comes with the fitting bolts it’s a great price, would be even better if they provided a fitting service like most online safe companies

"Proven fire protection for 2 hours up to 843°C, independently tested by UL (Underwriters Laboratories), also withstands a drop of up to 30 feet."

Damn, I like my room toasty hot at 844C instead and I like to throw my money from heights of 31 feet.

Although I could image someone who owns this shouting at the firefighters that there's only 10min's before 2 hours is up :P

Seriously though, voted hot- just need some real valuables worth more then the safe itself :)

Who needs a bank vault when you can buy one of those, dirty bankers wasting our monies.

Hot deal...but

Your correct, if someone breaks into your house and spots the safe they mave even wait for you to come back thinking jewels and cash, get you to open it :thinking:

Leaving your bags open whilst in transit is not a good idea, what if someone slips a bag of coke in there and customs in another country clock it :whistling:

Comes with fitting bolts for sercuring to ground, took about two hours to do with a friend. Did see some safe companies that provided fitting services but it was about £100 also some wanted to charge about £100 for delivery!

almost 0% interest but 0% of your money if they go under.


Corrected think it is £10,000 per account, except if with Northern Rock unlimited but not allowed to open any new account?, or did I miss something when the government gave all our money to the banks?

Many thanks thepharmacist been on the lookout for a good quality fireproof safe of this size, gone for this one, heat + rep!

True, but hiding the safe is a good idea.
Just make sure you tell the neighbours you're having one of those new Sentry mini dishwashers delivered!!

On 3rd October the Bank Of England increased the guarantee from £35k to £50k, and Chancellor Alistair Darling is looking at ways of guaranteeing people's savings held by a bank or building society up to £100k

Right, I am moving house to one of those 200 year old ones with 2' thick walls, burying this in the wall and hiding it behind a painting. But what painting should I choose to look inconspicuous? Decisions. :-D
#30
RRP 400?
Even amazon only say RRP is 279.

Even so, 200 is a good price.

Bear in mind, this will take A4 width, but you can't get a notebook in there.
OK for passports, trinkets etc. If it were 3-4 inches wider it would be grrreat.

guys, can someone with some experience in building / buying / using / breaking into, safes explain what makes this superior to e.g. £25 - £50 one from argos, for most households? It is tempting to just look at the price as an indicator, but I mean, for the most of us, holding maybe £5,000 worth max in it with important documents, in areas unlikely to flood, is this recomended? Or should we consider cheaper alternatives?

I use two safes but neither are protected for fire, it is just a security consideration for me. Both are chained to the building and bed, both have an alarm cable on them - if cut, an alarm will go off inside the safe and nobody will be able to gain access to switch it off. A lot more peace of mind in my opinion. I will upgrade to a fire safe in the long term.

This is a fire proof safe and considerably more substantial (e.g. 6 locking bolts not 4 and so on). Unfortunately however it still uses a tubular lock which really is not particularly high security.
#37
For extra security buy two of the little beauties, hide the first in a fairly accessible and obvious place and put a few minor valuables and documents in there, then when the ******s wait for you to get home and order you to open it they don't get their hands on the really valuable and important stuff which is secreted away in the other safe which is far more cleverly hidden, of course you'll still get a good kicking for your trouble but you can't win 'em all ;)

If you are considering buying a cheap safe that you see for sale around the 30 quid mark, don't bother. Tests have demostrated that you can break into these in just a few seconds.

Have a look at this review.
