Abus Detecto 7000 RS3 Alarm Disc Lock
Good minor deterant.
This alarm may be a good deterant to thieves and could make it annoying to complete the theft. But it is not sensitive at all. It takes a significant shock to set it off. Some may say that that's a good thing. Its easy to mount and looks like it can deter theft.
That's the real plus, once on, I don't think it could be removed easily. The alarm shuts off in 30 seconds or so without further disturbance, but will re-alarm if the motion continues. The alarm could be louder. The key is a bit bothersome at times, as it does not easily seat into the lock. Something that I can live with. As usual, Revzilla was great with advice and filling the order in a timely manner. I would recommend this product as a visual and minor deterrent.

Not very sensitive alarm
Unlike some of the other alarms that freak out when something touches your wheel, this one takes a bit more to activate it. A moderate tap with a shoe will do it.
Good for the city since sometimes trucks and other bikes make car alarms go off. I'm sure some of the other bike alarms would go off too. This one is a good deterrent, and if they still try, it'll go off.

Decent alarm, for a decent price
I bought this to add a small level of security to my bike. I would say it works well if i have my window open while I sleep I can hear the alarm, and since I can park my bike so close to the door at work the guys up front can hear it so all-in-all it works just fine.
It is not the loudest, but it goes on in seconds, comes with everything already setup ready to be put on the bike

Alarm sound could be a bit more loud, but overall it's a good lock and you'll definitely hear it.
Fits on a brake disc of a Vespa GTS Super ('14-present)!

Great theft deterrence!
It's a great product and experience so far. Leaves me with a good state of mind walking away in those "sketchy" areas or when I go to sleep, with easy one handed installation. I haven't had any false alarms and the lanyard is a great reminder for when I'm in a rush and forget to take the device off my bike. I could say it should be louder but I can hear it in any room in my house and plus who is going to want to steal a bike they can't get quiet :) plus because it's on its own battery I don't have to worry about killing my bikes battery. Over all it was money well spent to me!

Great Disc Lock
Easy one hand operation to install, small enough to carry in my saddle bag, but very heavy and sturdy construction. The key coded is very different and the audible alarm is a deterrent.

Suprise! It's not a stapler
Ok dumb joke it's not a stapler, but really check out the awesome info video they made about this lock! I can only add is that to change the 2AA batteries is super easy! Just lift out the "silver panel bump plate" that presses on your disk that activates the alarm, replace batteries, then snap panel back, ta-dah done!!

Easy to use, good size, a bit quiet
Seems well designed; easy to use and easy to store. I like the included reminder cord and storage case.
It doesn't go off too easily, but any moderate bike movement will trigger it. Just a bit more sensitivity would be nice (or adjustable sensitivity!)
Minus 1 star as it isn't particularly loud. It might annoy anyone messing with the bike and draw attention from those nearby, but you aren't going to hear it from any distance or indoors. The Xena alarms appear better for absolute security (beefier, harder to cut, louder) though this is nicely transportable and a reasonable deterrent.
