    More cons than Pros

    • Written by from Berkeley

    I bought this on impulse for my 15" macbook pro retina.

    It looks beautiful
    It adheres nicely to the keys

    But,

    the protector edge keeps catching under the lower edge of the spacebar, no matter how I hit it. (occasionally other bottom row keys also)
    it obscures the backlighting
    it is reducing my typing accuracy
    LBNL does the keyboard really need protecting? I think not

    So, cons>pros. Its going back.

    Pop-up Protector

    • Written by from Okotoks

    The keyboard protector would continuously pop-up as whenever I would press down a key near the outside which is clearly due to a lack in flexibility. It also couldn't fully settle down over the keyboard and just lay on top making key pressing annoying. I would not recommend this to a friend or family member.

    Returning

    • Written by from White Lake

    I used it for a few days and it degrades keystrokes causing what we would call "fat finger" mistakes. But my biggest complaint is that it nullifies the lighted keys, it's not a clear membrane but solid colors.

    Wanted it to Work

    • Written by from Flower Mound

    I gave this at least two stars because of aesthetics and function of keeping the keys clean/protected. What you gain with the other aspects, you lose in keyboard functionality. It is really difficult to type on and sticks all over the place. I like the feel of the keyboard so much better with it off. Don't waste your money unless you want a clean, cool looking keyboard that stinks to type on.

    The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

    • Written by from LOWER SACKVILLE

    The Good: It cuts down on key type noise, it feels nice and the colour looks good.
    The Bad: It doesn't fit perfectly, especially around the space bar and command key
    The Ugly: It does protect your keys from getting dirt in them but the oil from your fingers will make it's way to the screen every time you close your laptop. I don't have scratches on my screen but if you don't mind an oily imprint of your keys covering your screen go for it.

    Difficult and uncomfortable to type but it looks great.

    • Written by from Montreal

    I've been trying to use this protector for 3 months, but I'm giving up. 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.

    Doesn't fit right on the keyboard

    • Written by from Greenville

    This thing does not fit perfectly on the keyboard, especially the space bar. It slips and moves, especially the edges. It will keep dust out of it. Not worth the price I paid for it.
