    Cons
    -kinda pricey for a piece of plastic but worth every penny, its the only one of its kinds out there right now. Others are made of super thick silicone.

    -as it gets dirty, the more opaque it gets. So i decided to clean it with soap and water...BAD IDEA. the opaqueness got worse. So the solution is to rinse it GENTLY with water. DO NOT CRUMPLE IT UP AND SCRUB the wrinkles will be permanent. use a QTIP to clean it instead. And last but not the least go over it with a little bit of baby oil just to get it all clear and shiny again =)

It fits on perfectly (its very thin too), you can't even see it (my bf didn't even know it was on); however, there is a little spacing above the function keys. It also gives my keyboard a little glossier look. As for typing with the moshi clearguard on, it feels squishier and you have to push down a little more. I also let it sit on my laptop for a while with the screensaver on and when I came back, it felt a little warmer on top (I'll be testing it more to see if it makes my macbook warmer). Overall, it will definitely prevent oil, dirt, crumbs, ect. on getting on/in between your keys. It is a good buy, but I wish the price was a little less.

  • The BEST keyboard skin ...

    5.0 out of 5 stars

    I don't know how I missed THIS one for so long, but luckily I finally came across this skin and I'm so glad that I did ... it's su I don't know how I missed THIS one for so long, but luckily I finally came across this skin and I'm so glad that I did ... it's superb! Unlike it's rivals (all of which I've tried in the past) this one is actually clear and has a GORGEOUS tactile key response (meaning you can actually still type with little to no effort)! The others feel like you are attempting to type through THICK rubber cement ... but this one is SWEET! It's quite clear (almost invisible), it's very thin, and allows for easy depressing of keys!!!!! Pricey, yes it is! Worth the cost?! YES (especially considering the cash that I spent on the other, more cloudy, thick/gross/RUBBER models)!

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

    3.0 out of 5 stars

    Still all the same quality product from Moshi and everything you would expect for its keyboard protector - transparentness, thinne 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.

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.
