Replace a keyed cable lock

Targus DEFCON® T-Lock Resettable Combo Cable Lock - PA410U
Targus DEFCON® T-Lock Resettable Combo Cable Lock - PA410U

Pros: Works exactly as I expected, and fits perfectly into a Lenovo Z61m. The double swivels on the lock make it easy to orient. It was very easy to change the combo, lock and unlock, and it comes with a velcro loop to make it easier to store. It came with a desk security hook that I didn't expect. It's easier and faster to use than the cable lock (that needed a key) it replaced, and it coils up tighter even though they're both the same length.

Cons: It's length of the combo lock is twice as long as the key lock it replaced, but I don't expect this to be a problem unless I use the computer on my lap.

Overall Review: It would be nice if it came with a small carrying case so it wouldn't get tangled with other things in my bag, but that's not a mark against it as I haven't seen other cable locks come with a bag.

It won't come off!!

Pros: It is compact and small, and works well as long as it doesn't get moved.

Cons: Earlier today I submitted a review praising the size and ease in which this lock can be used. That was before the lock changed the combination by itself, and now won't come off. This seems to be a common problem with this lock. I did follow the instructions, and tested it a few times outside and inside the laptop, so it definitely worked before I left home. I'm very disappointed. This lock isn't worth any amount of money.

Overall Review: It seems that vibrations change the combination. If you're buying a cable lock and intend to be portable with it, this lock isn't worth the risk.
