- USB 2.0 device locking up system - Forum
mavroxurIf someone wants to swipe your $200+ gaming keyboard or peripherals, this really won't stop someone from simply cutting the cord and replacing the $3 USB plug on the end when they get home. Neat idea I guess though.
Agreed but most of those kinds of thefts are opportunistic and having to cut to cord is problematic and thats assuming that the dude knows enough or is willing to spend the time to put it back to gether. Such a crime will more likely be premeditated than opportunistic.
Yes someone could always cut the cord and replace it but whats really stopping them from just taking the entire computer?i know there are computer locks usually from Laptops but you can use them for desktops so the thief just brings a small bolt cutter and then your $200 worth of peripherals and your computer is gone
