I wouldn’t bet my life on a $200 Biometric safe or any for that matter...
As stated in the title I would not bet my life on a $200 Biometric safe made by anyone for any amount of money. It just isn't worth the chance of failure. Just recently I made a post in another section basically parsing my GV but I always open my safe with the Key, also my key is always in it while I am near and it is closed, or I have it in my pocket. I rarely ever open it without the key because I know that there could be a possibility of failure and I do not want to gamble with that. At-any-rate thanks for the heads-up with your experience it definitely reinforced my beliefs.
