    Excellent

    • Written by from Chorley

    This is a great product that fits seamlessly in with the MBP. Almost no reason not to include it as part of the cost of your new mac, particularly if you intend to use it a lot. Been using this protector for 5 months without fault, the laptop came as a gift, and it took me almost 3 months of use before I noticed it had this protector included. As beautiful as the laptop itself, correct colour and most of all clean. Doesn't pick up dirt at all or affect the trackpad function. Peels off easily, and can be reapplied again and again without loss of grip.
    Only problem I have is the material. Being plastic, touching it all the time makes it greasy and sticky, which you will be aware of if you've used an iPhone earlier than the 4, and can make it frustrating to use. Therefore, it requires regular cleaning. However actual dirt or stains are no problem, it is a wipe-clean surface not subject to scratches.
    Aesthetics: 10
    Function: 10
    Durability: 10
    Usability: 9
    If you intend to use your Macbook Pro seriously for a long time this is a must.

    My Second experience with Moshi Palmguard

    • Written by from MIRANDA

    I have used Moshi Palm Guard on my MacBook Pro13 from 2011. I used it for over a year and was very happy with this product.
    It was, therefore, natural that I ordered the same for my 15 inch Macbook Pro 2012 too.
    As before, I am very happy.
    Delivery was super quick.

    Colour Match: Perfect
    Quality and Finish: Excellent -- its a very good quality product.

    Some people will not like the track pad guard. I suggest that you dont throw the protective layer away. apply trackpad guard and see how you go . If you dont like it , take it off and stik it back onto the original covering to keep it for later re-trial.

    EXCELLENT!! Except the trackpad gaurd.

    • Written by from Auckland

    I will keep it short. I bought the Moshi PalmGuard to protect my MBP's palm rest area. Two things worried me about the purchase- 1) The color and shape matching with the aluminum, and 2) Putting it on and the after effects.

    The first thing I absolutely love about the product is the 100% perfect color matching that Moshi has achieved. And I am very finicky about my MAC. A single dust speck drives me nuts. But the palm guard just blends in and is absolutely unidentifiable unless you run your fingers around the top edge where it ends, just below the speakers, and feel the almost non-existent boundary. The precision cutting on the thing is amazing and there is absolutely no rough or ugly edges poking out over the sides at all.

    Putting it on was a breeze! The semi-rigid material really makes aligning it easy. Just get a feel first without removing the protective backing, and then go for it. It just falls into place. I have been using it continuously for over three weeks, and there has been no adhesive spill overs, or corners bending upwards. It is just an invisible layer of protection, and feels great!. I will recommend it to everyone!

    About the trackpad protector: The trackpad on the MBPs are glass, and don't need that much protection. Also nothing can provide the same feel on surface as glass. Which is why I chose not to use that part. It is lying safe in my closet. I didn't like the feel of it. Or rather I prefer the feel of the smooth glass. So I left it bare, and it has done me no harm- cosmetic or otherwise. I can't comment if the trackpad guard will reduce the sensitivity of the trackpad, but considering it will cover up the glass, I wouldn't be surprised if it did. I am not risking it. It is important to remember that the palm rest is a dormant area. The trackpad is a functional area, and one that relies on touch sensitiveness at that.

    Best solution to hiding pitting and hand marks.

    • Written by from Melton Mowbray

    Just bought the Moshi Palmguard 15" and I have to say that i'm really impressed with the product!

    I bought the Palmguard in desperation when I noticed that my 1 year old Macbook Pro was developing what seemed like bleached/ stained/ wear marks where my hands rest next to the trackpad. Even with Apple Care protection, Apple would not replace my uni body and so I seeked a product that could discretely hide the marks. This was difficult for me to do as I am a firm believer that Apple devices are things of beauty and should not be covered with any type of peripheral or stickers. However, I can say with confidence that the Moshi Palmguard is fantastic! Very discrete, blends in well with the colour and feel of the Macbooks aluminium. Hardly notice it's there at all!

    I bought this to prevent my MacBook Pro from getting worn and dirty. It blends in with the color of the Mac and is still easy to use the trackpad. Hope it stays on for a long time!

    Great product!!!

    • Written by from Glendale

    I just got my palmguard came in today and I have to say it is absolutely worth it. The color fits perfectly with the aluminum unibody on my 15" mbp and it's extremely easy to install. However, I didn't use the trackpad protector since I noticed a lack of sensitivity when doing single click but worked fine with multi-gestures. Not sure why.

    Overall, it's a great product and you will not regret spending $25 on it.

    Simple and effective

    • Written by from Roanoke

    This PalmGuard is a great solution - it really is sized perfectly, and the precision of the color matching is impressive. I was ambivalent toward the trackpad guard, but tracking texture is an intensely personal matter. I was sad to leave this on the MPB I just sold, but I'm buying another right now.

    Absolutely essential!

    • Written by from Denver

    This is an essential product for those looking to protect the palm rest of their MBP from scratches and dings. I purchased this for my late-2009 15" MBP, and it transfered flawlessly to my new 15" i7 MBP when the other unit had to be replaced; there have been no problems with adhesion.

    I do not use the trackpad protector because I found an unacceptable depreciation in responsiveness when I did, but it's absolutely worth buying the product just for the hand plant protector. The protecter does exactly what it's supposed to, and it looks fantastic! I use it along with the Moshi keyboard protector, which also functions very well though can deform a little with heat and use.

    Excellent Product

    • Written by from Suffolk

    Just installed this on our 13" and 15" MBP's and they work great. The track pad is ever so slightly less responsive but you get used to it rather quickly. Highly recommend these IOT keep the palm and trackpad area looking good as new.

    Awesome. One skeptic won over...

    • Written by from Sydney

    I bought this to combat the possibility of natural wear that wrists can bring to the palm rest. Easy to apply and feels natural! For those who worry about the contrast between the protector and the unibody shell, no need to worry, because it's VERY subtle.

    Regarding the touchpad protector, I was worried about the possibility of a reduction in tactile sensitivity, but the touchpad is still very responsive with it on. But I can't really compare with it off because I applied the protector as soon as I got my Macbook Pro. You may have to be a bit more direct with your touches rather than casual touches/swipes to compensate of that potential tactile (albeit very small) loss. Oh, feels good by the way!

    The best discreet palm protection

    • Written by from Slough

    very easy to apply and cut to exact size so it lines up perfect. If your using an incase or specs hardshell you will need to make a little cut out around the clips so that the protector doesn't bubble up over time. Feel and looks as if it's not there and even the colour is a good match.

    beautiful

    • Written by from Mississauga

    at first i was cautious to use this, as i find that third party accessories usually make a new macbook pro look 'ugly'. This however, blends well with the colour of my mbp - the texture is nice, and the best part is that it isnt thick! -- so when i close the lid of my mac it still sits snug.

    highly recommended.

    fits just right

    • Written by from Cebu City

    this is a great product which adds to the beauty of the notebook. and contrary to what others have said about the trackpad not working, after a few days of installment when the palmguard and the trackpad guard has settled, the trackpad is actually working fine with it's sensitivity back to normal. just allow a few days and a little getting-used-to for it to work.

    At first, I was quite hesitant in getting this, but I still went ahead and got one. And boy, I'm glad that I did. It was a breeze to put it on, and the cover didn't interfere with the functions of the trackpad. Very high quality product. I highly recommend it.

    needed on the unibodys

    • Written by from Basking Ridge

    I bought this not so much for protection but the just-so-slight padding it adds to the palm area. If you mount it close to the edge the palmrest no longer cuts into your wrists as the sharp aluminum does by itself. Its a needed addition. I may ditch the trackpad part though. Feels too rough.

    • Written by from Woodland Park

    I got the PalmGuard protector about a week after I got my new MacBook Pro and I love the PalmGuard Protector. It looks and feels like the aluminum that is on the MacBook Pros. It is really is to put on and I haven't had any problems with it since I got it about 4 months ago.
