Review: Kensington ComboSaver Portable Notebook Lock (video)

Kensington Portable ComboSaverThe Kensington ComboSaver Portable notebook lock’s self-coiling cable set it apart from the competition, making it more convenient to use and carry. If you aren’t already using a notebook lock or are frustrated with your current one, you should definitely check out the latest ComboSaver.

Most notebook locks are a hassle to deal with. Their stiff cables make it difficult to stow them away in carrying cases, often getting tangled with other accessories.

Kensington’s solved this problem by giving the ComboSaver a self-coiling cable. This makes the ComboSaver incredibly easy to setup and pack away. The coil compresses to about three inches long, but stretches to six feet-the same length as most cable notebook locks.

There are four dials on the lock, allowing for 10,000 possible combinations. perforations on each dial make it easy to rotate them. A small rubber bumper on the end of the lock’s cylinder helps prevent scratches on your notebook’s case.

The ComboSaver is a deterrent, but a determined thief can easily cut through the cable with the proper tools. The effectiveness will also depend on how well your notebook’s security slot is built.

The Kensington ComboSaver Portable with self-coiling cord is now available at most electronics retailers for $24.99.
