Without a doubt purchasing the SEC E9 “Made in China” Key cutting machine has been one of my worst locksmith investments I have made.
I wanted a new Key Machine to replace my 7 year old Miricle A5 that has seen extensive use and has worked flawlessly. I was about to purchase the Miricle A9s but decided that for the price of one Miricle A9s I could buy two SEC-E9 Key Cutting Machines. I bought one SEC-E9 and quickly regretted the purchase. The SEC-E9 malfunctioned after 10 keys.
The SEC-E9 Windows 8 Tablet PC has failed 4 times. Parts have to be shipped from China and no repair facility exists in the USA or Canada so I had to replace the tablet myself. The Motherboard has failed twice now and again I have to totally disassemble the SEC-E9 code machine each time to replace the motherboard.
I purchased most of the accessories to cut by code most automobile keys including Tibbe Keys, Tubular Keys, dimple keys and single-sided house keys, motorcycle keys, etc.
Also, I purchased the Engraving Jig but after delivery, I was informed the Engraving function was not supported by the SEC-E9 software. No mention of refunding my purchase of the useless Engraving part.
Response from the salespeople in China has been sporadic and the excuses have ranged from no Internet, No Facebook (blocked by the Chinese Government) and no email, again Blocked by the Chinese Government.
I decided to stop wasting my time with the SEC-E9 Key Machines and I now have a new Miracle A9s. The A9s has cut by code more car keys the first week I had it than the SEC-E9 has cut or duplicated in two years!
I have heard from many locksmiths how terrible and unreliable the SEC-E9 Key cutting machine has been. My SEC-E9 is unusable and now packed away in the box. Total silence from the SEC-E9 manufacturer.
Bottom LIne: In my opinion, the SEC-E9 Made in China Key Cutting machine is “garbage” and a total piece of “junk” and is now the Worst Locksmith Key Machine sold today.
