    The price is great! It works well. Fits all slots I've yet tried - including seveal Macbooks. It is very easy to use. The length of the wire is OK for most situations.

    The smell - other buyers also mentioned this. But it might make thieves stay away :-)

    Laptop cable lock

    posted by RobbHowie on 03/01/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    It works, people can't walk away with the laptop, a good deterrent. The cable is a good length, not to long or short for a table in an average hotel room. Seems reasonably strong. It can be easily rolled up and carried along with the laptop.
    Cons:
    Cheap. Lock mechanism is not smooth. Probably if someone gave it a good yank either the lock or the loop end would fall apart.

    good enough security for your laptop

    posted by jhaluska on 11/05/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    It is lightweight, but not short. You do not need to worry, the construction is sound and solid. And it works as intended. I think it is more than sufficient when you are outside, at a Kafe, and need to leave your computer unguarded for a second. Best of al...
    Cons:
    How to put it nicely... it stinks. I want to say, it stinked for a long time before I was able to neutralize the smell (I am of...

    Good deterent

    posted by RobbHowie on 10/30/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Cheap. Works as a deterant, so if the laptop is in my room, no one will casually pick it up and keep going. A determined theif will just break it but that is not common.
    Cons:
    Smells! Like the other reviews say, put it in the basement or closet or garage for the first week. What did the mfgs do, soak...

    Sturdy, cheap.

    posted by mhem01 on 10/08/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    It is a very tough cable that is used, so the thieves will have a hard time stealing my things. The keys are very good, and they fit great into the lock. The price is incredibly low - much better than the price here, which is much much higher.
    Cons:
    I can't really think of any cons. It is a very simple product and it does what is necessary. It smelled a little, but that does...

    posted by GRamH on 05/30/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    If you are looking for a simple lock to help keep people from steeling your laptop when you are at a coffee shop, school, or work this is probably one of the best ones you will find for the money. +cheap (price) +not too long, not too short +different locks...
    Cons:
    +Smell of packaging (but I will take the smell in replacement of the retail price) +rubber rings will fall out (may cause small...

    Security Cables Definitely Worth the Price

    posted by mikolles on 04/01/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    For the price, you won't find anything better. Definitely makes me feel a little more secure for when my roommate doesn't lock the door. Also I bought two and the keys were different in case you were worried about them all using identical keys.
    Cons:
    It didn't fit in the slot on my HP Pavilion laptop. I thought the slots were universal but apparently not. They do work fine fo...
