Stinkie little must have – Laptop/PC Security Cable Combo Reviews

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 you could break it if you want but I think that you mainly use this lock so your laptop does not get "swapped" away.
Cons:
Like the other reviewer said; the smell is strong and horrible! I carried the cable in my bag pack together with my lunch and my sandwich ended up smelling really bad.
Other:
I haven't had the incident that the lock opens with a wrong code. Hopefully not all locks experience this.
Bottomline:
Aside from the terrible smell, this lock is pretty OK for it's price.
