    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)!

But they are slightly different to the US. The "enter" key on the german keyboard is different so this protector will not fit perfectly.

    Beside that, it is a good product. If it is worth the amount of money is another question.

    I'm giving it five star because it serve it's purpose well, with that said there are a few things I can comment on what I notice a I'm giving it five star because it serve it's purpose well, with that said there are a few things I can comment on what I notice after 2-3 weeks of owning. The keys will feel plastic/rubbery to it. Typing on it will feel less effortless as the button cover well not compress singularly as it's a whole piece especially as most people will not press the keys directly on the middle. Fit wise, it does fit perfectly. Color wise, it is clear, but has a hazy look to it and you can tell it has a cover over it. Through this whole time of owning it, I do not see it getting dirty like how most pictures and video I have seen. The explanation I can come up with is that either people have stuff on there finger when using it or people oil compositing is causing it. My moshi still looks pretty new. Also, I don't see my my screen getting dirty from the key guard (probable got to do with my guard not being dirty. Overall, it keeps my key new vs. before I can see my keys getting shiny from the oil from my fingers and I have to wipe it to get it not shiny. Great addition, but not perfect.

However, it does not fit the keys perfectly, as it is slightly too big. Also, the cover lifts a bit whenever I type.
