Pros: When I got it I was surprised to see how much it was plastic rather than metal. I'm sure it helps to keep the cost and weight down. With the added advantage that you can put your phone inside and have it still ring. ;)

The waterproof door seal looks like it will do the job if the need arises.

The flip cover on the front is not as annoying as I suspected it might be before buying, actually it's fine.

Cons: Because it seems to be mostly plastic I have doubts about it being particularly physically secure, but I'm no expert in security, and don't really need particularly high physical security.

I could not find anywhere that will sell file hangars of the right size, for the plastic file hangar thing. So I keep my paperwork in boxes inside.

Excellent product and easy to set up and use. Would recommend.

My only gripe is that it has the model I purchased a file hanger system for papers (just like a filing cabinet). However it is clearly a special size of hanger - which is proving very difficult to find in the typical suppliers such as Staples or Amazon. As all their normal types of A4 or foolscap hangers are too wide.

The back up key is a good peace of mind if the code is lost or battery runs out.

The code is easy to set and reset

The handle was useful for getting it into position.

The safe was easy to bolt down securely.

The shelves are removeable so easy to make the most of the space

Pros: Fire and water proof which gives reassurance that documents are secure.

Back up key.

Cons: Delivery on a pallet which made it hard to get through doors.

What is the torch and tool resistant status of this safe? Burglary seems more possible than fire to me.
greg, C
This unit is designed more for protecting against Fire and Water, rather than security for cash and valuables as it is only accredited a £1000 cash - £10,000 valuables rating. If your primary aim or concern is the protection for cash and valuables I would consider one of the higher security level ranges such as the £4,000 Cash Rated.

Please can you tell me how the AQUS3 works? i.e. do the shelves all come out to leave a large cavity or is it divided? It is hard to tell from the photos.

All the shelves and compartments are removable if required which would leave you with an empty space of 500 x 340 x 350mm (HxWxD).
