Nice Kensington cable – Laptop/PC Security Cable Combo Reviews

posted by mostrow on 04/24/2010 Certified Owner

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

- 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.
- Smells terrible - there's a flaw on the unit: the cable itself is very strong, but the metal junction is very flimsy, making your protected unit vulnerable. - Sometimes (happened with my sister) a wrong code may open your lock. - Setting a new code isn't the easiest task, but many people can manage it.
Could have a better release mechanism; The cable junction should be stronger. The junction problem isn't a big deal, since this device should do the trick as long as you leave on a public place where has people all the time, avoiding someone to just get your notebook and walk away with it. By leaving it alone on a place, someone will surely try to force the cable.
Fine for many of your needs. I would use on my home, to keep visitors to take my notebook away from my desk.
