    Not worth $50

    • Written by from Kalispell

    I have used Speck cases for some time now and have been generally happy with them. This one on the other hand has some serious design issues. Mine and my brother's both have the tabs broken off and my brother bought another one just to have those snapped off as well. I am looking into buying another case to protect my MacBook Pro but I'm not wasting $50 for another case to last a month at most. Don't waste your money on this, $50 should buy a more solid case that should last at least 6 months.

    Lasted about 2 months then i started noticing these little stress cracks on the corners in the front, both top and bottom. I absolutely baby this laptop and its gone no where but my desk and a very cushy laptop bag. There are no signs of an impact so these are just forming on their own. Very disappointed since there were cheaper options out there and i thought i was being safe dropping $50-60 on this product... wrong.

    I had a See Thru for my old 13" MacBook Pro and I loved it so I expected to love this Speck case as well. Unfortunately, one of the the back bottom tabs broke off the first time I removed the case to clean off the computer, but it was tolerable so I continued to use it as it was out of the return timeframe. The other bottom tab broke of the third or fourth time and it became unusable at that point. Not up to par with the old Speck hard cases, look elsewhere for a decent case.

    the case looks like good, but poor quality... the bottom part has a hamp, the edge is damaged, and the surface is scratched

    Another sad story!

    This tale is an unfortunate one. I bought the smart shell for the mac book pro with retina. The case its self is of okay construction. It protects your MacBook pro from scratches and minor bumps. I keep good care of my MacBook pro and was surprised to find one day when one of the tabs had broken off the cover protector. There is not much to the construction so it is easy to see why it broke. I still use it to protect my MacBook pro from scratches, but it would be good for you to know that since the MacBook pro with retina is sooooo thin that the cover does not have much for clips and can easily be broken. If you are looking for something that will last the test of time then you are barking up the wrong tree.
