Xena XX-6 Disc Lock
Disc lock that you can't go wrong with!
Easy to use and fits good! With or without the alarm, it is a great lock by itself and does its job! Wish it came with a storage back because it gets a little dirty and I usually put it in my backpack and it gets on my other stuff.

Not that loud...
I bought this lock since my rear wheel can't accommodate a bigger peg. The 6mm isn't really that confidence inspiring nor is the alarm on this thing. People say it's super loud but it seems like it would get the attention of people nearby but not really that loud. It only goes for 15 seconds which doesn't do too much imho but I use it everyday and it's really easy to put on.
Big negative I've found so far is that the key hole kinda slides around so the key doesn't go in easily all the time (the topmost layer rotates independent of the rest of the locking mechanism) which leaves me scrambling to open it while the alarm goes off.

Basic protection is better than nothing...
This thing can wake the neighbors up if triggered; however it does take a little bit of bike movement to get the alarm to sound. Overall it's a good product for a reasonable price to rid you of the common bike thief, but it's definitely no safeguard against real criminals.
Easy to install
Loud, when triggered
Bright yellow color avail; really stands out
Sometimes key gets jammed when locking/unlocking
Isn't very sensitive at all

Decent disc lock, questionable alarm.
The disc lock feature fits my CBR 250 front disc perfectly. No issues lining it up at all.
The alarm leaves a bit to be desired. I tested my alarm by moving my bike and it went through the series of chirps (5), then the alarm just did one final beep and... nothing. I changed the battery, but this did not resolve the issue. The alarm just doesn't go off for whatever reason.
I still make use of the lock feature itself and will probably seek an alternative next season. I recommend this as it's affordable and I'm assuming my alarm issue isn't a widespread problem.

Works as advertised
The alarm is loud, and the lock is sturdy. The bright yellow is visible. What else is there to say?
If you jostle the bike before unlocking, it will beep a couple of times before the alarm goes off, giving plenty of time to get it unlocked. However, once that cycle starts, there's no stopping it. So, if you accidentally bump the bike, but don't have your keys on you, you're SOL.

Was good while it lasted
I liked the lock. I know even the sturdiest ones can be easily removed by the pros (or so they say, if you read articles written anonymously by motorcycle thieves. Those are very interesting, by the way - Google them), so I picked the one with the alarm hoping that breaking it without getting noticed would be harder.
The sad thing is, my lock broke today. The sadder thing is that it happened while it was in the bag as I was riding my bike, so there was next to no abuse, except for some obvious moderate vibration. There is only one removable part in the lock - the black metal bottom piece that you remove to replace the battery. It has some type of "chip" that helps the lock sense the movement. That part is lockable, but the metal piece that holds it attached to the lock itself was probably glued to the lock instead of being welded or cast together with the lock, so mine got detached.
Here's hoping Zena's return policy is good. Will update my review when I find out more.
