Xena X1/X2 Disc Locks
Exactly What I Wanted
I am very happy with these disc locks. I was looking for a simple and effective disc lock without the alarm (read that the Xena alarm ones go off randomly too often) and got exactly what I was looking for. I got the X2 for the front and the X1 for the rear. Perfect fits. I like how the yellow is easy to see and effectively deters low level thieves and joyriders.
I read that the yellow paint chips off easily. I haven't had that issue yet, but I've only had these locks for less than a month. Overall, a great product. As most others recognize, affordable and works, but will not stop premeditated theft. You need layers of security. Definitely recommend though.

Simple & Effective
The device is simple to use. I place it on the rear brake caliper. I like that it can be seen as you walk up or past the bike—like it's saying, "Don't mess with me!"
Paint rubs off only where the device hits the caliper.

Simple and Effective
Simple and effective way to safeguard your bike and make someone work harder to take it. Make sure you put the lock key with your bike keys so you don't forget about it.

Just what I was looking for
I'm very happy with this disk lock. I use it when I go out, and I've never had issues with it.
The only minor detail is that the paint chip pretty easily. I keep my lock in the storage compartment under my seat, and every time I take it out to lock my bike, some paint is missing. I really could care less about it, but I know some people were disappointed with the finish.
Overall, I'm very happy with this product and I'd recommend it to anyone who is looking for an easy way to lock their bike.

Basic Security and some Peace of Mind
As with anything lower priced disc lock, it won't really stop a determined thief, as the ones without alarms can be defeated pretty easily and silently. But security is all about layers of deterrent. This will deter the opportunist thief or punk kid looking for a joy ride, as will locking your forks. I would not advise just using this one lock. But this was a good buy at a good price. In my small hometown community, it gives me some peace of mind at work and at home.
Affordable and works, but will not stop premeditated theft. You need layers of security.

Cheap (not in a bad way)
Bought one of these using my extra revzilla cash. was a great choice.
cons: the paint is definitely rubbing off very easily ( like mentioned in other comments)
fits in my tiny ninja seat compartment
easy to use
the yellow is easy to see (makes the bad guys pick someone else to mess with)

This small disk brake lock is small, simple, and easy to use. Fits nicely on the front disk of my CBR250R and the yellow finish makes it stand out to would-be thieves. The key and lock cylinder are high quality and I've had no problems at all locking or unlocking it. The finish is not the best--it's starting to come off in several high-wear places, but for the price I'm not too upset. This is good investment for any bike.

Easy to use and cost effective
For relatively little expense, this disc lock (I have the X1) provides easy to use and effective basic security. Absolutely worth it!
