1.0 out of 5 stars Changing Combos March 15 2006
By Madame Butterfly - Published on Amazon.com
I am a student living in a dorm situation and so wanted some basic protection for my lap top computer. I purchased the defcon cl because it was inexpensive, widely availible, and easy to use. Unfortunately, it has one major drawback, occasionally it decides to change the number combinationss which unlock it. I went to the company website and they suggested trying the numbers immediately around the combination and if that failed trying all the number combinations possible (there are 10,000). Several hours, one blister, and 1787 combinations later, I got frustrated and used a jewelers saw to cut through the connection to my computer (this solution took only five minutes). I would not suggest this lock to anyone who lacks the patience to try trial and error experimentation until they reach the correct combination, nor anyone attending a school with a metalsmithing program.

1.0 out of 5 stars Combination mysteriously changed April 30 2006
By Sheetal Patel - Published on Amazon.com
I had been using the lock for my laptop for the past 4 months without any trouble. All of a sudden, today, as I went to pick up the lock, which had been left untouched in the open position overnight with my combination in it, it decided to change combinations by itself. So it was in the locked position but the combination is still the one I had set. I tried so many combinations 'around' mine but obviously there are so many different possibilites. The fact that I even have to try to think of what combination my lock decided to change itself to today makes this a lock I can't rely on!

1.0 out of 5 stars Lock changes combination by itself - Do not buy Sept. 2 2006
By LGI - Published on Amazon.com
I have been using this lock for a few months without changing the combination. Suddenly I could no longer open it as it appears that the lock has changed its combination by itself.

I called engineering in the hotel I was staying in to help me. It took them less than a minute to cut the cable with ordinary pliers.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not For Apple ibook Sept. 8 2005
By J. Katz - Published on Amazon.com
DO NOT BUY IF YOU HAVE AN iBOOK!! It slides in easily, but it is almost impossible to get out. I had to call their support line and they told me to apply pressure in the upper left corner (lower right corner if the lock is upside down). Even after doing that, it took me 10 minutes before I finally got it out. When I called, the guy asked me if I had an ibook before anything else. He then told me that they are tight in the ibooks and people have trouble getting them out. It is not worth the struggle if you have an ibook. I highly do not recommend this product for apple ibooks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works as expected, can't change combo Sept. 24 2008
By Jason Heiss - Published on Amazon.com
I have one of these at work and it seems to work as expected. They include some adhesive hard plastic spacers that stick onto the end of the lock so that it is snug against your computer. I haven't had any problems using this on my MacBook Pro.

Note that this unit has a factory set combo, you can't change it. The Targus PA410U allows you to change the combo, but according to the reviews seems to be plagued with changing the combo on its own. So if you can figure out a way to remember or write down the combo (I store it in an encrypted file on my computer) then this is probably the way to go if you want a combo lock.
