MasterLock Street Fortum Black £15.02 @ Amazon

Found 1st May 2015
You can usually find this lock for £25+ online and in most stores so at £15.02 it's a bargain, since it's the larger model (280x110mm). It is clearly not comparable to the better U-locks out there such as the Kryptonite New-york, but in combination with a cable lock it should keep your bike safe in most areas. In addition it's £14.27 at Amazon for students via NUS Extra.

On Amazon, there are quite a lot of negative reviews saying this lock sometimes jams and is difficult to remove. OTOH, this type seems to be a conventional key type whereas the cylinder type of key seems to me to be more secure
I believe that most of the negative reviews are referring to the older model from 2007 that had some serious issues with the keys shearing when placed in the lock. I think this has been solved since in the 2009 model, although do proceed with caution if this is still a recurring issue.
terrible lock, rust after 1 day of use
