Recovered in less than two weeks
on November 3, 2010
I bought a one year subscription when I bought my laptop a year ago. It was a replacement for one that was stolen so when the sales clerk recommended Lojack for Laptops, it seemed like a good idea. I had actually forgotten that I bought it until that laptop was stolen too. The laptop was stolen on Oct. 22nd. I reported it stolen on the Lojack website the next day. Today, Nov. 3rd, I got a call from the local police saying they had recovered it. I've read a lot of negative reviews about how Absolute doesn't honor the cash back guarantee and how long it takes them to respond, but for me at least, it was worth every penny. I only gave it 4 out of 5 stars because I think their website could be better. As others have noted, once you report it stolen, you lose the ability to monitor it and if I had pulled the trigger on the data delete, I wouldn't have gotten confirmation of the delete. There are other, perhaps better, security utilities out there, but for me Lojack for Laptops performed as advertised.
