  1. We're not sure how common peripheral theft is, but if you lose sleep over the thought of someone swiping your pricey gaming mouse, NZXT has a solution. The company has launched a new contraption called the "Bunker" that secures external PC devices, such as your keyboard, mouse, and headphones.

    Good place to store the piece of paper with all your passwords on it.

    People still write their passwords down? What's wrong with just remembering your passwords?
  7. I just use "password" for everything. Oh crap.. I gave away my secret :{

    how the eff does that help me with my wireless mouse? At least you can get the same result without cutting the wire, the mouse leaving the plug behind.

    Or you could just cut the peripherals and leave with the tower itself?

    Been to a local LAN 4-5 times with 100+ people and I have never heard of someone having anything stolen at my local LAN.
  11. It might be useful as a protection against the placement of hardware-keyloggers.

    Ha Ha, It's just one of them cheap locks they've been using for ages. Hardly a challenge to a theif....If they were wanting to actually steal your stuff, they would just lift the entire rig, and be gone.

    True, but a deterrent is a deterrent any way you look at it. ;)

    I think it's more for just saying that you have it and that someone else doesn't.

    Not if any of your other USB ports are open.

    Also for wireless, it could be used to add a couple ports up front which would be much better for wireless signal strength, and being covered (assuming the cover does not interfere too terribly bad) will really make you forget they are there, while freeing up other USB slots (or at least get receivers from plugging in on the back end of the case).

    It is the world's second most common password after all. Even more common than 123456 :)

    Mah, if the theif is good enough with a soldering-pin he'd snag the equipment anyway I think. (I am aware of the tricky wiring, mind you) But nowadays, gaming-gear and alike is expensive enough for some crooks to consider it worth purchasing a seperate plug from Radio-shack in order to get hold of mice, keyboards and what not.
  17. That thing doesn't look at that solid, makes me wonder how easy it would be to force it open...
