    Dirt, Crumbs, Spills OH MY!

    • Written by from Carrollton

    This Moshi Clear Guard Keyboard Protector is perfect if you want to keep your MacBook looking new and clean! It's great at catching crumbs (we all eat and try to use our MacBooks) admit it! This prevents the keys from wearing down with heavy usage and also allows the same ease of typing as you would have without it. It is extremely thin and fits flush with every key. Of course because this is not 100% precise and exact, there is just a slight wiggle, but it is hardly noticeable! As for the price: I'll say what I say on most protective accessories. The reason you buy something like this and pay the price advertised is because you are interested in protecting your investment. Being part of the Apple community means paying a premium for the products they produce. With that said, I think paying a couple bucks to protect your investment and keep it new is just common sense! Hope this helps! Highly recommend this product!

    Almost perfect but the only best out there so far!

    • Written by from Brampton

    It does what it says. Your keyboard will collect lots of dust and grim. This is the only way to protect your keyboard. The thing that I don't like about this product that it is slightly does not hold tight enough onto the keyboard. When you are trying to type fast or pressing down your keys hard, it moves a little. Other then that, I thin there is no other alternative to this product. Some people don't like the tactile feel that it makes for your keys. In my case, I love the feel. This product is very thin, and if you like to make your keys a bit more tactile. This is right product. Overall, I would recommend this product.

    Highly recommended

    • Written by from Dunedin

    Thought at first it would be just Ok, but after putting this on, I now highly recommended. Can hardly see it, it feels natural while typing and most of all it will keep my keyboard clean.

    Doesn't fit well

    • Written by from Bayonne

    I'm happy to have the added protection from debris getting under the keys. It feels like it's lose and a little wider than it should be. If the machine gets hot it can stick to fingers if you rest them on it for a while. It's clear enough but it does make the keys a little cloudy.

    Great Protection for your Keyboard

    • Written by from Millbrae

    I am quite OCD about how clean my Macbook Pro is. I bought Keyboard Protector so that I could stop worrying about getting the keyboard dirty in between each key. It's great, I hardly notice it's there, keeps it clean. The reason why I didn't give it a 5 star rating is because when I press my delete key while typing or any of the keys close to the sides, the protector tends to, I guess in a way 'stick' to my finger and comes up or it bends up, it's quite annoying but other than that I have no complaints.

    I definitely recommend this products for protecting your keyboard

    Not perfect fit for rMBP 15" typing feels clumsy

    • Written by from Auchenflower

    Still all the same quality product from Moshi and everything you would expect for its keyboard protector - transparentness, thinness and durability. However, perhaps designed with compatibility in mind, this MB version of keyboard protector doesn't fit the Retina Macbook Pro's keyboard as perfectly as those designed for Macbook Air and Apple wireless keyboard. Typing feels clumsy thus greatly slowed down as tiny gap between the protector and keyboard make it seems less secure and 'wobbly'. A bit disappointed considering its price where a dedicated version should have been released to fit the new rMBP.
    Surprisingly, my Moshi protector (CS) for Apple wireless keyboard fits better and doesn't wobble like the MB version.

    Cloudy Keys

    • Written by from Salem

    I bought this keyboard protector soon after I bought my new mac. I have a macbook pro 13" retina display and the protector fits it perfectly. It takes some adjusting, but when you are used to the feel, typing becomes easy. When I first put it on you could hardly tell that it was there. However, after a while it saturated to look cloudy on the keys, very sloppy. I tried washing it with soap and water, but it still has that cloudy residue. Overall I am really upset with the quality of this product.

    Not custom designed to fit MBP Retina

    • Written by from Gold Coast

    I bought this product to protect the keyboard on my MBP retina 13" from liquid spill. Whilst the overall quality of the material and the thickness of the skin is pretty good, I don't think this product is specifically designed for rMBP. This is very clear by just looking at it from the side of the machine. The skin's profile is obviously slightly higher than the keyboard. Because of this, the skin will leave some greasy marks on the screen, and for that I had to buy a screen protector. When typing with the skin on, I can feel the gap between the skin and the keys, making key press a bit clumsy.

    All in all, you get decent keyboard protection but keep in mind it's not gonna be a perfect fit if you have rMBP.

    Turns yellow over time

    • Written by from ROSEMEAD

    In fact it is a great product and the thinness is great. But keep in mind that it will become yellowish over time (or at least noticeably darker then when you first bought it). Washing cleans it up a bit, but the dark tint remains. sigh.

    Nice

    • Written by from Springfield

    PROS:
    Nice quality.
    Barely noticeable.
    Takes a little bit of time to get use to, because you need to push down a little harder.

    CONS:
    If it gets to dirty it can put a pattern of your keyboard onto the screen, so I recommend using a screen protecter with it.

    Overall, a really nice product.

    Not exactly what the (positive) reviews say

    • Written by from Warsaw

    Encouraged by overall positive feedback, I have purchased the Moshi Clearguard for situations in which I have to use my Retina MBP with not necessarily clean hands. Unfortunately, the products is not what I expected. The awesome MacBook keyboard becomes a totally different one and typing on it is not fun anymore. Whereas for pressing single keys it's okay, for typing a full text I keep on making mistakes and overall type a lot slower than without the protector. Also, after a while the fingers get more sweaty than usual and you get a feeling of stickiness while using (and I'm not the type of a sweaty-palms guy).
    Having said that, the Clearguard still fits pretty well and protects the keyboard from dust & oily fingers. So for me it's worth using only in very special situations, when you want to avoid otherwise problematic process of cleaning the keyboard itself after the use.

    Don't buy - useless!

    • Written by from Mount Pritchard

    Please don't buy this keyboard guard! ! bought it today with my new macbook pro 13" retina display. The guard fits the keyboard but it's very flimsy and flutters/moves when you type. It also makes typing slower because when you try to tap a letter, the guard moves slightly, making it difficult. I do not recommend it at all. I really want my money back. Useless.

    Moshi ClearGuard is Ok

    • Written by from Knoxville

    I purchased this keyboard cover to protect my keys against my fingers. It does a great job protecting the keys, but I do not like how the protector gets really dirty and smudged. Also when you close the lid your fingerprints appear on the screen. Very annoying. I have tried to clean the Moshi Clearguard but it doesn't really help.

    MUST HAVE!

    • Written by from Salem

    At first I was a bit hesitant, but after 1 month of using this product, my keyboard looks brand new. I started using the cover as soon as I got my mac! I won't be using my 15' MBP without it! The only thing I don't like about it is that it has to be cleaned regularly. I clean mine once a week. If it isn't cleaned, the keyboard dirt (grease) leaves prints on the screen. The product is thin as advertised. I forget that it's there sometimes. The LED lights on the keyboard have no problem shining through this transparent cover. The cover also perfectly aligns with the keys. I will definitely be buying from moshi again.

    Does not fit MacBook Pro 13" retina

    • Written by from Riverside

    When I bought it, this was advertised as fitting all macbook pros, even the 13" retina. I found that it does not sit properly in the well around the keyboard and because of that was not flush with the keys. it was essentially unusable. i hope they come up with one for the macbook 13" retina soon!

    not worth the money 0 *'s

    • Written by from Santa Fe

    I purchased the Moshi clear guard keyboard protector, palm guard palm rest protector, and the IVisor pro matte screen protector for my new macbook pro. The fit of the palm guard rest and the iVisor were off by 1/16 of an inch. I trimmed the palm guard rest and didn't even bother to try and get the iVisor to fit. The palm guard has now been on my computer for 3 weeks and is coming off. The keyboard protector works best when not on the computer. When on the computer, it makes the computer fill like an old mechanical typewriter. If I could I would give this companies products
    ) stars.

    Perfect Fit!

    • Written by from Coffs Harbour

    This keyboard protector fits perfectly on the keyboard. It moves around a tiny bit will typing but it is not noticeable.

    The only complaint I have is that when using the arrow keys, the protector seems to lift up and slide around more, I believe this is because of how far the arrows are from other keys.

    Can't be more satisfied

    • Written by from Docklands

    This is a must-have product if you seriously care for your Mac's keyboard from all the dust, body sweat and anything else that shouldn't be on it. Ultra thin with great silicone quality, you'd barely feel that you're actually typing on a cover but not the keyboard itself. Highly recommended!

    Definitely not worth the money

    • Written by from Chapel Hill

    I bought two of these, one for me and one for my wife's MacBook Pro. The protector does fit well, protects your keyboard, and does exactly what you would expect it to do. However, it starts to get "cloudy" after just a short time, I tried washing it like the instructions say but it didn't help. This cloudiness makes the keyboard look absolutely horrible and makes it more difficult for the backlights to shine through. If you're going to get a keyboard protector buy from a differenet manufacturer.

    Poor fit on my MacBook Pro 4.1(Penryn)

    • Written by from Seattle

    The Moshi Clearguard protector is a sloppy fit on my 2008 MBP. It is totally useless except as a dust cover.. cannot use if typing. I purchased this based on the product description which stated it is for a MBP. I should have investigated with greater care and emailed customer care for more info. Apple or Moshi should provide better info on their initial product description so customers don't waste time and money on the wrong product. Perhaps stating the year of the MBP laptop... e.g 2008, early 2009 etc etc... I purchased a Moshi Clearguard CS a couple years ago for my Apple wireless keyboard; that cover is a perfect fit and stays in place during use. I tried the Clearguard CS/wireless protector on my MBP 2008/Penryn but it does not fit either. Same problem with slop that prevents use while typing. Only solution I can think of is to purchase another wireless keyboard and put a permanent dust cover over my MBP laptop keyboard...
