    Works fine

    posted by finnanger on 08/28/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It does what it is supposed to: It locks my computer. It seems solid, and if someone tries to pry it open I think my computer will brake before the lock.
    Cons:
    The pivoting hinge is not super smooth, but that's not really a problem.

    relatively ok quality, bargain price

    posted by teoubg1 on 06/25/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    The build quality of the lock is a bit of a concern. The locking tooth is wobbly, sometimes it has a hard time when pulling out...

    Very useful, lock my laptop to my desk

    posted by ecfbw on 02/22/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very reasonable price. At retail stores, they usually sell for $20. The quality could be better but it very affordable and useful for its purpose. I can preset my own combo to the lock
    Cons:
    The quality of the metal does like cheap aluminum, so the metal could be better. But for the price, I think it is reasonable

    Stinkie little must have

    posted by dizzylizzy on 01/10/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This lock is okay for it's price. However the average cable length is rather short; about 1 meter. The cables I bought here in the Netherlands are usually twice the length. I like it that it has a combo lock instead of a key. Build quality is OK. Sure yo...

    Nice Kensington cable

    posted by mostrow on 04/24/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Keeps your kensington-compatible device(lcd monitor, notebook, pc, just say it) on its place; - Sturdy cable, made of steel cable protected by a plastic cover, seems durable enough; - Cheap for what's intended for.
    Cons:
    - Smells terrible - there's a flaw on the unit: the cable itself is very strong, but the metal junction is very flimsy, making...
