I have bought several of these safes to give as gifts for college-bound students and it's a great way for them to secure personal items where they're out of view and reach for all the traffic that comes in and out of a campus dorm room. They're large enough for laptops up to the 14 or 15 inch range, but anything much larger is probably not going to be an easy fit (if even possible).One of the things about this safe I find interesting is the safe key versus the security key feature. I have used SentrySafe's similar sized product and the back-up key they provide is not a safe key, but a security key. You probably need to search key images on a locksmith web site to see the difference I am trying to describe here. I just found a good example on a site called Perrin's Key Cutting in Hampstead. That's a business in North London but on their site they illustrate different types of keys and the one shown as a "Safe Key" is very similar to the keys that comes with this safe, while on the same site the key shown as a "Security Key" looks very much like the keys that come with the similar size SentrySafe brand.I know nothing about picking a lock, but it seems to me that a pipe safe key with double bits at the end (this safe) would be more difficult to defeat than a single bit pin security key (SentrySafe). I'm sure that both locks are "pickable" but in very different ways and it just seems that in looking at the keys of these two safes, the one on this Buddy would take more skill to pick. That's a good thing, but of course it also means you need to be sure to keep the back-up key somewhere safe, just not IN this safe.I'm not crazy about the platinum color of this safe but it's a durable paint job that should hold up well. It wouldn't be hard to repaint it if you prefer a different color.I think this is a great safe and I'm giving it five stars. I have no hesitations in recommending it to others.
