Hard to beat
written by Masterblaster on September 6, 2018
Not as fast as my old Inprint but like the new features and updated design

Great construction and appearance . . . biometric sensor complet
written by Returning from Pomona CA under warranty on September 3, 2018
After more than 18 months of ownership, I replaced this "Smart Vault" with something else that reads my fingerprints 100% of the time. After just one month, the HDX-250 was completely unreliable . . . sometime taking 5-10 passes to recognize a fingerprint. Never was able to read any of my wife's fingerprints. Quck access with a key is not what I paid for.

Worth EVERY penny!!

My wife got me the HDX-250 for my birthday. She bought it online (big box, unfortunately) and it arrived damaged and not functional. I called Liberty, spoke with Steve, and they quickly, and happily offered to replace the vault! I told Steve that I have a local Liberty Safe dealer (Smart Safes, North Augusta, SC) and Steve called them and coordinated an immediate exchange! Matt at Smart Safes greeted me by name when I walked in the door and had the exchange taken care of within minutes and without so much as one piece of paper!
With the quality of their products (I also own a Liberty Colonial 64) and the quality of their customer service, Liberty Safes has earned a loyal customer for LIFE!!

Quick fingerprint install, also used security cable.

I Purchased the HDX-250.
It barely fits underneath my bed, so there was no way I could have mounted to the floor and still have room to operate the biometric lock.
So I purchased the 6 foot security cable, and had a 3/16 inch hole drilled into it at the safe shop where I purchased the safe.

We have an extremely heavy bedframe, extremely difficult to disassemble or break, without spending a lot of time and effort, so I was able to secure it to the bed with the cable, which allows me to pull it from under the bed and quickly access the safe.

lock box smart vault

bought a small pistol for my girls "wife -daughter" to practice with target shooting a Walther p22 have a very curious grandson 4 1/2 that is very intuitive and curious about anything going on.
he has already noticed lock box and want to know what it is. and since we hunt pirates driving across causeway " water between mainland and chincoteague island "he is gun savy, "need to shot pirates pop," so need safety and reassurance that its available.

Having a local dealer is key.
written by US Made on August 11, 2018
You can only do so much research on the internet before you have to get your hands on the product in question. If something happens to your product and you need it serviced and the dealer is on the other side of the country that does not help you. Dealers also sales that you cant find on the internet. So having a dealer that is knowledgeable, helpful and local is key to this type of product.

Great Buying Experience
written by RayS on August 2, 2018
I went to the Liberty Safe dealer in Farmingdale NY and dealt with Scott. What a pleasurable experience! After looking at several safes, I took Scott's recommendation and purchased a Fat Boy. As I was checking out Scott mentioned the Liberty HDX-250. He showed me how easy it was to open with a swipe of the finger and explained its advantages. I knew this was just what I needed. I am now in the process of setting it up and I look forward to using it.

Not impressed so far
written by Hozer on August 2, 2018
I've contacted liberty safe about the biometric scan not functioning and not allowing me to set it up. Liberty is shipping the vault back to their location to see if they can fix it or replace it. So far I'm not impressed with the biometric scan. Hopefully after liberty fixes this one or sends me a new one I'll like it.

Guess we're still learning...
written by Old Ump on July 14, 2018
I'm hoping to change this rating to 5 stars with time, but for now we're having issues with recognition of finger prints. We've followed the instructions precisely, but it's still not always recognizing my wife's prints, which kind of defeats the purpose of having this sort of gun vault. Although there is a key for the vault, the speed of access is what we were looking for.

Mom's Smart Vault Review
written by Southern Nana on July 12, 2018
This is a high quality product. We feel much safer with my young grandsons in the house with our pistols secured in this safe. Yet, it is quickly assess-able in an emergency. We have had two Liberty Gun safes so we had pretty much decided on a Liberty pistol vault due to the excellent quality and customer service of the dealers.

Kids can be curious!
written by Rick Lorick on July 12, 2018
Highly recommend to keep children safe but still quick access to weapon for self defence.

written by Bravo 1 on July 7, 2018
High Quality. Quick opening. Easy to program. Rugged construction.

Great Quality/Easy Access
written by MAC on July 4, 2018
This is a great product, lives up to the Liberty name. It has plenty of room to hold two sub compact handguns and their magazines. Easy access with the fingerprint scan, have not had any issues with it opening.

Awesome little safe!

Bio Sensor doesn't work consistently
written by BigR on June 23, 2018
The safe is well made and high quality. I was concerned about the bio sensor working all the time first time, and after having the actual vault, my concerns turned out to be true. Sometimes the vault opens on the first pass, sometimes many passes are required. Not very good, especially in an emergency.

Excellent handgun safe

HDX-250 Black, great quality build, reliable biometrics, easy and quick access.

Very Good Pistol Safe
written by Engineer in Sac on June 18, 2018
The HDX-250 seems to be constructed very well. The unit itself feels heavy and solid. Enrollment of fingerprints was very easy. The interior blue light is a nice touch. The only downside, I would say is the loud noise it makes when it is actually opened. Definitely can be heard a few rooms over inside a quite house. I placed a rubber mat between the floor and mounting bracket in an attempt to dampen the sound the door makes when it falls.

Overall great quality.
Solid construction.

Excellent Quality
written by Pen on June 16, 2018
This safe is very sturdy, and by my guess, would take a lot of time and effort to break into. The price is very fair for this safe, and I'm happy with the purchase. The design is clean, and the initial setup and programming is easy. The only concern I have is there is no means to secure or anchor the safe down, and it is light enough that someone could just grab the whole thing and run.

See my other review.

I bought a Lincoln Liberty Safe and left a long review about it. I rate this vault in a similar way, Excellent! See my other review under the same name, Scaler.

Nice warranty responce
written by Rick on May 2, 2018
I have a few Liberty safes! One of my vaults developed a glitch in the lock. Liberty was very quick to resolve my problem! Can't get much better that that. Liberty covered the shipping and ended up sending me a new unit.

Steve M.
written by Steve M. on April 13, 2018
Purchased HDX-250 Smart Vault because of recommendations from online and from friends. Attempted to program finger reader the first time with no success until after I was able to finally get through to a representative. The automated phone answering service would direct to press 3 and then be told it was not valid. After being able to get in contact to the manager, Steve, he professionally described the steps necessary to program which after several finger swipes I was able to finally get it to recognize and program to unlock.

However sometime later I tested the finger sweep and was only able to achieve 7 activation's out of 100. I reset the program and started from the beginning. The second time I was able to open 36 times out of 100. If the finger reader is that sensitive regarding finger placement and pressure this part of the product definitely needs redesign. It does appear that I am not the only customer having this issue. I am sure that there is an answer.

Liberty's Response:
Hi, sorry to hear about your troubles with your unit.  Just like your iPhone we recommend programming your "go to" finger multiple times so that you get a good consistant read no matter what angle your finger is at.

Great Gun Vault
written by TWS on April 8, 2018
Great way to keep your family safe. I have a young child at home and this vault and the other two that I bought helps to keep my family safe. I used to have guns insecure throughout the house before my child was born but that is no longer a safe option. Built in America by Americans; I'm with that. Make America great again!

written by Dave C. on April 8, 2018
Easy to install with mounting bracket (sold separately). Easy to follow instructions for programming. Very solidly built.

Amazing American-made product!

Don't use the power supply
written by CDB on April 3, 2018
I'm glad I read these reviews, because I was having zero luck getting the fingerprint reader to work, but had only tried with the battery and the power supply plugged in. After reading DB's review on March 5, I tried programming and opening using just the 9 volt battery, and it works! So I don't know if I've got a bad power supply, or bad control board, but I'm hoping to get this fixed or it's going back to Cabelas. Otherwise this safe seems well built.
Liberty's Response:
Thank you for the review.  Please call our customer support at (800) 247-5625.

Ease of setup

The Liberty HDX- 250 Smart Vault is a product that provides secure storage and access to a weapon within the the household. Secure access was easy to program and works very well.

Very good safe, works great!
written by Lonestar147 on March 18, 2018
It works very good but I had a hard time loading my fingerprints, it helped to go online and watch video. I finally got it then. I like the AC adapter, the battery will last longer. This my second one, the first one didn't have an AC adapter.

Well built, secure safe.

Well built, but biometric functionality is not great, at all.

Works every time
written by Angela on March 12, 2018
The biometric hand vault is perfect. it works every time and have had no issues what so ever.
