Abus Provogue 305 Disc Lock
Overall I was pretty disappointed in this lock, even before my bike was lifted into a truck and stolen.
Lock: My key fit in the lock both directions, but would only actually actuate the lock one direction - the other way the key would go in but not turn, so that was a hassle. The key also felt a little rough or sticky going into the lock, feeling like a shoddily cut doorknob key. Otherwise, it's nice that you don't need the key to close it - you can just push the button.
The pouch it came with is cheaply constructed. On mine, the seam along one side came open within a month so the lock could pretty easily fall right out of the pouch. Also, you're going to want to leave the lock unlocked in the pouch so that you don't need the key to open it just to close it on your disc - however the lock doesn't fit well into the pouch unless the bolt is closed.
I don't blame this thing for my bike being stolen, but I do recall it disappointing me before it was. I guess I just expected better quality from a premium disc lock.

It is very easy to use
This lock is very easy to use and it is nice to come with a protective pouch.

Easy to use and well made.
The lock is very easy to put in/take off. It stands out enough to be a deterrent to casual thieves. The key that came with it is very small and kind of cheap looking, but other than that no complaints. Made well, easy to use, and cheap. Exactly what u wanted!

Quality Product for cost
It's easy to use and quick to throw on and take off. Gives me that extra piece of mind when I'm parking my bike in a suspect area or parking deck. I recommend one of these to everyone.

Small and Secure
Love that it has some weight to it. Doesn't feel like a low quality piece. Fits perfectly in the bike storage or backpack. And overall, it gives me peace of mind.

Can't beat it for the price. I also bought a bright orange cord to remind me it's there... Got the cord for 7 bucks on Amazon.

Good compact lock. Easy to operate with one hand once you get the hang of it.

Works as advertised. The storage bag it came with fits perfect in my small storage spot under passenger seat. Good bang for the buck.
