Which do you prefer? An old style dial or an electronic keypad.

I prefer the dial for 2 reasons:

- I know that it won't malfunction
- On an electronic if you never change the combo (let's face it most of us don't) the numbers can show slight visible wear if you use the safe a lot. An enterprising thief can determine the numbers and than only needs to figure out the order by trial and error.

Dial. One less variable to worry about.

Electronic.

Speed of access and the numbers have not worn after 5 years of opening the safe every day.

And you can much more easily change the combination if needed.

Dial, too paranoid and too d school to fully trust an electronic. (The machines will come for us one day when that bloody thing they call the Internet spawns a consciousness and decides to hold your guns.)

I saw recently where safes are now being offered with both. Go figure.
