The tentacle is indeed a bit large and thick. And it does make grindy gear noises, as another reviewer indicated. But if you are listening to music or watching TV the grinding noise isn't that audible.
At first it was just a fun, rather useless toy (it would be awesome if it was a thumb drive! hint hint). Then my cats noticed it and the horror began.
Whenever the tentacle was plugged in and squirming my cats thought it was a toy, and started to swat at it and bite it. I left it out of its box once (just once!) when it wasn't in use and the cats carried it off.
I found the missing tentacle in the cabinet under the bathroom sink. Clearly the felines were using it as part of an arcane ritual to summon some kind of eldritch gods. They had constructed some sort of altar out of bars of soap, travel size toiletries, disposable razors, washcloths, and one dead mouse, presumably a sacrifice.
I retrieved the tentacle, dismantled the altar, said I was sorry to the mouse and threw it away. I plugged the tentacle back into my laptop and went back to watching horrible SYFY channel movies about impossible sharks.
So I thought all the loud water noises were related to the movies, some of which actually feature sharks in the water, as opposed to swimming through sand, or living in car wash buckets, or being ghosts, or traveling in snow, or flying and eating helicopters and planes, or being part of tornadoes.
By the time I realized that the watery noises were coming from outside, and that my TV does not have smell-o-vision and I don't live close enough to the ocean to smell low tide, it was too late.
The Deep Ones were at my door. Aquatic humanoids, stinking of fish and the ocean, wheezing in the open air, their webbed hands were outstretched, ready to initiate my transformation into one of them.
Now I sit here, in the bathtub, my laptop in a plastic bag, scratching at my new neck gills with webbed fingers. My cats are back under the sink, busy with another altar. I've forgiven them.
I've resigned myself to leaving soon for my new watery home, to become a thing of legend myself. Maybe SYFY will make a movie about me someday, swimming with sharks.
In the other room, the tentacle is plugged into my husband's computer, grinding away, as he yells at me to hurry up in the bathroom. He has started to wear his collars up. Perhaps he will join me soon in the sea.
First, it is BIG and THICK. My Mac Air book's USB port is so close to the desk, and the tentacle is so thick, that it makes the whole Mac want to wriggle, which is annoying. If you have a old, thick, clunky PC with a USB port more than 3/4rds of an inch off the desk, then this might work better for you.
Secondly, it is loud. The little gear motor inside the tentacle GRINDS away like some cheap toy you'd get for a child in the 70s, RRRarrrr RRRRarrrrr RRRarrrrrrr. Maybe if it was a squishing, or slimy organic sound to go along with a wriggling tentacle, but the grinding motor just broadcasts cheesy annoyance.
The motor's motion IS strong. It can move your mouse or coffee cup, it you put them too close to the wriggling tentacle.
The USB plug DOES Rotate, so you can put the suction cups down, up, or facing towards you or away from you. But even thought the plug end rotates, the wriggling motion is the same - the just put a rotary connector from the USB jack into the motor's power input.
Though I am not thrilled with it, the tentacle will make a nice re-gifting idea in the future.
