5.0 out of 5 stars A relief 8 Dec 2008
By D. Cole
Own two of these - one for my Samsung HDTV and one for my laptop and have had them for about 3-4 months now.

This particular lock is Kensington's (currently) most secure and advanced lock and on that information I chose to purchase this lock above all the others.

Yes, they are a bit more costly than the other one's you can buy but the main difference between this one and the cheaper locks is the lock mechanism and the keys - they aren't the 'circular'/'locker' keys that most of the other keys have but suposedly unpickable locks. The keys on this model are actually very unusual - they have 4 sides! However, scouring the internet before purchase, the lock on this is meant to be much better then the other kinds.

On that information alone using this lock actually makes you feel like you can leave your laptop somewhere if you need to without the worry of it getting stolen.

This lock might be more expensive than others but I would highly recommend it. It feels secure on both my TV and laptop and gives me such peace of mind (I actually use mine at university). Just loop it around a solid object and back through itself and then lock it up. Easy to lock, easy to remove (with the key obviously).

This is obviously only designed as a first point of defence against thieves - a determined thief could probably force the lock off but he would most definately have destroyed half of the laptop's case too. A good deterant then? then again, what thief wants half a laptop...

If you are worried about leaving your laptop on your desk at work, home or university buy this for peace of mind and trust me you will never be worried again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid Build and Good Design 9 April 2009
By Jia
Verified Purchase
There are some users who have complained about kensington lock actually damaged their laptop's exterior due to the extreme force of the locking mechanism. It really depends on the particular laptop you are using. Most laptops do not have such problem. My laptop, which is ASUS F3Jc, works perfectly with "MicroSaver DS".

(1) This "MicroSaver DS" is a solid build from head to toe. Expensive, yet a good buy still.
(2) "MicroSaver DS" is a much better version than "MicroSaver". The major improvement is the lock. The card trick is not going to work on DS.
(3) The key is symmetric. It is simply brilliant.
(4) It comes with a big solid plastic clamp to hold the rest of the cable when you only need a short length. Excellent design.

Important note: the Kensington lock only prevents your laptop from being removed physically. You still need other measures to protect your data. It is never a good idea to leave your laptop unattended in an open space for a long period, say more than 30 minutes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works well and is very robust. 6 May 2009
By Paul D
Works well and is very robust. No problems. They key was a little stiff to turn with my Samsung NC10 Netbook. Turning the key pushes the rubber seal tightly against the computer case and this requires a little force. (In fact, I initially thought that the key would not turn). However, I imagine this tight seal to the computer case is actually a very good thing in terms of security.

5.0 out of 5 stars J Barker solid study lock 27 July 2009
Verified Purchase
This Kensington MicroSaver DS lock is "I think" the best lock Kensington have produced to date. It's solid, study and the key seems to be more security proof than the previous Kensington locks I've had in the past. I only purchased this recently but already I can see it was worth paying the extra. It fit's my Acer notebook perfectly. When I was looking around for a new lock it did cross my mind to purchase a keyless one, but after reading different reviews on the keyless kind I'm glad I got this one instead, let's face it who want's to fiddle around with entering yet another set of security numbers. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a new notebook lock.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does the job 28 Feb 2009
The lock is very substantial and keeps my laptop secure in my shop. I feel comfortable leaving it unatended and know it will still be there on my return. Very good value.
