It is so uncomfortable, it slows down my typing ability a whole lot with the material of the texture. Given my issues I wouldn't say its worth it; but some people may find it better! Good luck

It fits my Macbook Air keyboard and my Apple keyboard perfectly and looks great (I have the blue gradient model) but when a key is pressed, there's a little ridge round it. Because of the ridge, I have to lift my fingers higher to type and hit the keys harder and close to the centre. My typing is slower and is full of typos, and my fingers ache. Also, sometimes the cover over the space bar stays slightly depressed (like me when I use this product), and the cursor runs off all by itself. All in all, the product looks great but is horrible to use.

I wasn't too impr I had shopped around for a while before I finally broke down and bought this keyboard cover at the apple store. I wasn't too impressed with the price. However, I wanted to keep my macbook pro retina 15" protected and looking new. It took a while to feel more comfortable typing with it, but I consider that neither a pro or a con, since the keyboard isn't going to function the same with a cover on it, regardless.

    Pros:
    Fits great--stays in place
    Looks great
    Does exactly what it needs to -- protect the keys
    Keyboard backlight does show through


    Cons:
    Price. A bit steep at 24.95 from the Apple store
    Occasionally gets caught under the arrow keys if I hit the button a certain way.
    On a few keys the text does not match up with the text on the keyboard. This is only affecting the keys with words like Enter, Shift, CapsLock.

Feels a bit weird to type on; the edges remain rigid while the centre of the key is depressed. My typing speed's dropped from 120WPM to about 90WPM, but part of it's due to adapting to the softer, more cushiony feel.

    Be sure to massage the protector onto the keys. Running your fingers in-between the keys works well.

    Blocks the backlighting a little - it's still visible underneath the protector. The backlight on the characters on the keys are faint, but it's functionally not an issue as ambient light from the monitor's good enough to see the keys.

    Had the same issue with bottom row keys sticking (i.e. Control, Command, Spacebar, etc). For me it's the left Command key that sticks - seems to happen if I hit it too close to the lower edge or too hard. Seems to be caused by the lower edge of the key remaining rigid and falling down with the key instead of bending inward. I seem to have fixed it by gently massaging/stretching the silicone covering the key. Manufacturer might be able to alleviate problem by lengthening the bottom edge of the protector itself.

It matches really nicely with the shell for my new mac. However, the protector doesn't fit that well to the computer. The texture of the plastic is also to sticky. I feel like it is stuck to my hands when im typing. I typed so much slower with that protector. After 2 days, I couldnt stand it. I picked out the old protector from my old mac. I have used that protector for 5 years. I would rather use that. so much better.

    I guess I don't care to have a colorful keyboard or not. It is frustrating to use when the protector impede my ability to type.
