    13" Macbook Air 2013

    • Written by from WOOLLAHRA

    Its very thin but it is not a perfect fit and it moves around a lot: sometimes it comes entirely adrift. It needs to be tackier on the underside to stay in place. I type fast, though not in the approved touch typing style and I often get annoyed when the cover moves. Its not quite the right size so the left or right hand end doesn't fit closely over the keys. I put up with it - my last Macbook died after one too many glasses of wine ended up in the innards...

    Well worth the money

    • Written by from Skegness

    When buying this product I really took my time in choosing the right product as I believe in looking after my MacBook and in buying quality and usable products. This Moshi ClearGuard Keyboard protector definitely fits the bill and is both usable and of a high quality.

    The keyboard cover does not hamper the usability of the keyboard at all, and actually makes the key strokes sound quieter and makes the keys feel slightly nicer. Additionally, whilst I do not find it any harder to type on my MacBook when this cover is in place, it does slightly alter the feel of the keyboard - But I actually like this different experience.

    Some people claim that you can see a dust outline on the 15" retina screen when you open the lid, but I can see no such outline, and given the thin material used in this product I do not believe it is thick enough to interfere with the screen.

    All in all a great buy that is definitely worth the price tag.

    Amazing Grace ;-)

    • Written by from Nykøbing Falster

    Nice piece of equipment! Well designed, fits well (MacBook Pro 17"), thin and practicable invisible, no greasy fingerprints, but a bit pricey, though, for a piece of 'plastic' (thermoplastic urethane) - :) - Would have liked some kind of self-adhesive 'sealant' to the edges - not to keep it in place as it does excellently already, but to prevent eventual spills at the edges to go beneath it.

    Perfect

    • Written by from London

    I've been using this for a year on my MacBook Pro... it also fits my iMac's wireless keyboard. It seems a bit pricey for a piece of polythene, but it fits perfectly. And for a wine drinker who likes a glass or two at his desk, it's a great bit of peace of mind. Good also in the pub with the laptop. Recommended.

    Moshi Clearguard

    • Written by from ILFRACOMBE

    Late Macbook Air 2011.

    The product itself is very thin and nice & clear, don't expect totally transparent. The fit is fine, only a little loose but nothing that should cause a problem as it simply sits on the keys.

    Typing with the keyboard, well you just need to type that little bit harder but nothing that should cause a problem. Perhaps if your using this for long periods you might want to remove just to get a better tactile feeling.

    No problem with closing the lid either.

    Overall functional product which simply keeps the keyboard clean , perhaps a little high on the cost side, but compared to others its better by a long shot.

    It does not fit

    • Written by from Bristol

    The protector does not fit my keyboard (left shift key and enter key)... it is not very nice to type either. The protector for the Sony Vaio is much better than this.

    Not a great fit on Retina MacBook Pro

    • Written by from Mablethorpe

    It does the job, however its not a great fit on my Retina MacBook. It overhangs the dip and as such is raised off the keys - which causes a springy feeling and the occasional missed key presses. The keys feel so much better without it! But it will at least keep them clean.

    Not for MacBooK Air13"

    • Written by from Utrecht

    I bought this product for my MacBook Air 13”. It feels clumsy and increases typing errors. I found there’s gap between keyboard protector and keys. This could be the reason why this produtct doesn’t work well. Also, this product is not so thin as they said. It’s 0.2mm not 0.1mm.

    Not Sure

    • Written by from Desborough

    Not too sure about this keyboard cover. I got the US version as I have a US keyboard and there are some positives and negatives about it:

    Positives:
    Nice and clear and the backlit keyboard shines through
    Caps Lock LED is visible when the protector is on
    Nice feel to it, stops grease, etc getting onto your keys
    Easy to type when its on

    Negatives:
    Moves about when typing

    I dont like this because I am typing and the protector moves. This may be because it is thin, however it makes it lok cheap when it is quite expensive for what it is!

    I bought a cheap keyboard protector off Amazon for 1.50 and I think that is better. I will use the Moshi one for a while because I have paid for it and cant return it (Because my Uncle got it from Canada) however I will end up switching back to my cheap and better silicone one.

    Design flaw if used in combination with an iVisor

    • Written by from NEWTON ABBOT

    I have an 11" MacBook Air and purchased both the ClearGuard for my keyboard and the iVisor Air, however the two products do not work together as the lid will not close completely, leaving about a millimeter gap. That being said the quality of Moshi's products are excellent!

    Heavy typing

    • Written by from Barnstaple

    I would agree with one other reviewer that this is great for protecting your keyboard from spills and dust but otherwise I am not impressed with it. If you touch-type and are used to typing reasonably fast, it really slows you down because of the increased resistance of the keys. I have noticed that my fingers, arms and shoulders are much more tired when using the keyboard with the cover on, something to consider if you type a lot. I also personally do not like the feel of it. It feels ever so slightly tacky, like it has once been smeared with jam that has been wiped off so that only a very slight residue remains.

    Fantastic product

    • Written by from Surbiton

    Really amazing product. It fit's so well that it is barely noticeable. The typing is slightly more heavy, but nothing that you wont get used to. I was very tentative in buying this and now i am very happy with this product. It is also for a UK keyboard if anyone was worried. A must have for the concerned mac owner

    Great product with inevitable setbacks! Nothing's 100% perfect!!

    • Written by from Isleworth

    This is a great product that does what it says on the tin, protects your keyboard. It's super thin and sits on your keyboard really neatly, however, to the touch, you can feel it and it does slow your typing down. Do I mind it? No, but it does take some getting used to and if it protects my Mac, then I really do not mind this minor flaw.

    Good product, get it!!!

    Not for fast typers

    • Written by from Aalborg C

    The thing is, this thing is great for protecting your keyboard from filth, dust and rubble. But that's it.

    If you type any faster than you would, just using a pair of index fingers, you are going to get annoyed with this. It feels bad typing with it, and what's worse, it slows your typing speed considerably. I now only use it when im not typing(to keep it clean), or if im having a snack whilst typing.

    Slides around in use

    • Written by from Liverpool

    Really disappointed after reading the other reviews to find how badly fitting and inconvenient the protector is. It slides around for the slightest contact and even though it will protect the keyboard, I can't see my patience lasting with this product. It slows down my work too much.

    I'd say it works best for long periods of typing but when you're moving frequently from mouse to keyboard the sliding around is crazily annoying.

    I've got the 15 inch macbook pro. Does anyone else with this model have the same problem? Perhaps main source of problem is that it doesn't quite fit the function keys. Or perhaps my fingers are too sweaty? The protector often sticks to them. Don't buy if you have hot hands.

    Must have for your MB or MBP

    • Written by from ROCHDALE

    Very pleased to receive this as being the first time I had purchased a mac I knew I wanted to make sure I looked after it, the moshi keyboard cover was an essential buy as part of these plans.

    It is very thin, lightweight, and fits perfectly over your keyboard and even has a border which contours to the recessed edge of the unibody which frames the keyboard.

    Very slick product, and if you order from apple and if you receive the moshi, you WILL only receive the one keyboard cover, not two as another reviewer has mentioned as they are individually packaged.

    Anyway, must have purchase for anyone half way interested in looking after their mac.

    Good investment if you want to preserve condition of keys

    • Written by from Blandford Forum

    One reviewer said they got 2 in a pack? The package I got only contained 1 item, which was as I expected.

    It was for my Macbook Pro 15" (2010) UK keyboard and you just plop it on top of the keyboard.

    I am finding typing with it on is taking a bit of getting used to - It is not so thin / tight to the keys that you won't notice it is there when typing. Its not a problem, I am just saying...

    I would recommend getting this product at the same time as getting your new macbook. I have had my new macbook for about a month and bough the protector just in time. The keys are not oily or worn yet and now they will always be as good as new.

    Simply amazing

    • Written by from Cockermoutj

    You actually get two clearguards, one for EU (UK) keyboards and on for US style keyboards.
    They are incredibly thin and transparent, and also fit perfectly.

    Fantastic product and I recommend it to everyone with a macbook pro!!
